Reaching Prague in the evening in the rain was actually my best experience of Prague. It is a beautiful city but since I was not feeling in the best physical health I don’t think I really gave Prague the best shot.
Having found a cheap hostel I settled in and spent the next couple of days sleeping a lot and eating healthy food in a bid to get myself well.
I was lucky to be able to have a night staying with a Warm Showers host, Patrick – an English ex-pat living and working in Praha. This was really helpful for my mental health as I had someone to chat with in English and a vague sense of home … all thanks to PJ since I dont’t think I was the best company and he was on a time schedule, heading off to the UK the following day to see his mother … we did manage to get out for 1 Plisner Urqwell (beer)though!
Despite feeling a bit wobbly I get to walk around Praha quite a bit and enjoy some of the sights …
I also meet a group of Mexicans in the hostel who are participating in the Battle of the Nations – the Olympic Games of the Medieval Tournament circuit – which is being held in Praha this weekend! Hilarious reports of the tournament and their purchasing of armour and battle paraphanalia!!
I leave Praha on my birthday after unsuccesfully searching for the tournament grounds and deciding that I am not pushing a fully loaded Tilly around any more ..
