Exploring the world one word…and one mile…at a time

Czech It Out: Our First Night in Prague

The Beer Course: Cheese, mustard, pickles, onions, spices, bread, and of course...beer, a local Pilsner.

We arrived in Prague Thursday afternoon on a regional train from Leipzig via Dresden.  C and S are traveling with us on this leg of the trip, and we are happy to have the company.  (As an added bonus, we’ve been able to join them as guests in the Deutsche Bahn lounges at every train station…) After a steamy 45-minute walk to the hotel, we happily dropped off our packs and roamed the neighborhood. We stumbled upon a fantastic restaurant (Stará Doba) where we sat in a sunken beer garden and feasted on Czech beer, fried cheese, fresh bread, and roasted vegetables…all for around $12 per person.  After dinner, we picked up ‘to go’ beers at a corner store and continued to wander around, getting a feel for the city and stopping only for cover under a bus stop shelter while a thunderstorm rolled through.  (While we waited, M and C chatted up a Canadian couple on a bicycling trip who have already logged more than 600 miles across Europe…) We made our way back to the hotel just as it was getting dark (after 10:00 PM local time) and quickly fell asleep, exhausted from our travels and excited about the next day of adventure ahead of us.
