Today was my one month traveling anniversary I drank to that.
I woke up to the rain splashing down on my face beautiful sky-lite has now betrayed me by not letting my sleep in . I was up and awake at 6:00am so I went online and saw Aaron was online YAH! and got to talk to him for a good while.
It had stopped raining when I finally made it out of the hostel and headed to the bus station. On the way to the train station I realized I didn't have my rings on, I forgot them in the bathroom from when I had a shower the night before. I debated for awhile as to what I should do, should I miss this train and catch the next one or come back on a day trip to get them, or pray that the hostel lady might send them to me. I finally said screw it, put my back in the luggage room at the station, catch the next bus back into town. I found my rings right where I left them and then had to head BACK to the train station to catch the 10:00 am train to Prague.
I arrived into Prague at 14:40 and made my way to the hostel which was not far and once again directions where easy to follow. The hostel is called "Hostel Elf" which I hear a lot about and my friend Lyn stayed there when she was in Prague last year.
I headed out to get some food and it seemed there was nothing around but a Macdonald's so I gave in and went there. They have a few things here that they do not have back home so it does not count. I had a tzatziki burger with these thick crinkled herb fries. I walked towards the old square, it started spitting rain which was great because it was still hot and humid out, it made walking around the old town a lot more enjoyable.
Once back at the hostel I saw these guys playing backgammon which I have always wanted to learn to play, so I asked if I could watch and explain how to play which he was glad to do. His name was Phil from Australia and he was playing Villa from Finland. I later ended up meeting Marcus, (Villa travel buddy) Joe from Australia but
living in the UK for the past 8 months, who is traveling with Barton the turk who also in living in the UK. we had some beers before going out for some more beers which we found in a metal bar that is 4 shops down from the hostel. Last call there was a midnight which is ridiculous, I really though European bars would be open way later then back home. We did find another one where we had a few more beers and then one by one everyone slowly made their way back to their beds in the hostel.
