My Travelogue-Prague

I bought Flixbus ticket for Frankfurt to Prague for about 40 Euros. I have to tell you, the view was absolutely breathtaking. From frozen lakes to high-end cars, it was simply mesmerizing.  img_9080

I reached the Praha-florenc bus station at 13:30. Since I was travelling on a budget, I walked a mile to the hotel, dragging my luggage (trolley bag) all along. The festive season was on, and the old town square was really crowded. The theatre was playing a ballet- Swan Lake.

The hotel I stayed at was- Church Pension Praha, a budget hotel, with good wi-fi connection and other basic necessities. The manager was really cool. He cracked jokes and made us feel at home.

The church and the old-town setting looked like a scene- straight from a Disney movie-too beautiful to be real.

There were Christmas markets which had barbecued meat, antique jewellery, candies, cakes, and majorly, hot wines.

Czech Republic is a part of the European Union, however, it’s currency is not Euro. Their currency is Czech Koruna. The exchange rate is: 1 Euro= 27 CZK. A few shops accept cards, but only if you make a purchase more than 300 CZK. My advice is to get some cash exchanged beforehand from the Praha-Florenc bus station. Also, beware of the exchange shops that say “Best Exchange Rate”, they lure tourists easily. Don’t fall into the trap.

My travelogue-How it started!

img_9110My brother Aman is an avid traveler. He has traveled to so many cities worldwide and is always on the move. So, he was the inspiration. With the support of my parents, my younger cousin (sister) and I went on this almost solo trip and had the time of our life.

Somehow, most of the things panned out the way we expected. Some cities surprised us, some taught us and some made us fall in love with them

Our flight was KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. We got an amazing deal on the flight ticket. We got Delhi-Frankfurt-Delhi(round trip) for $500. For flight bookings, I used ‘skyscanner.com’. I recommend you start looking for tickets 2-3 months prior to your trip.

We departed from Indra Gandhi International Airport, Delhi at 3 a.m. on 21st December. Woo-hoo! And we arrived in Amsterdam from where we had a connecting flight to Frankfurt. We had to take the bus to change the terminal, and boy was it cold! And it was raining! We arrived in Frankfurt at 11:30 a.m.(local time), 21st December. We were in a new country, all by ourselves but we were so excited. It was cold, so I started dancing to build up some heat in my body! 😀img_9028
