Some last minute luxury

Prague

Jo and I are sitting here in an internet cafe, sending out press releases and our final (and only 2nd) newsletter. The sights of Prague beckon outside but unfortunately tukking chores come first.

We've had a few bits of press in the last couple of days, see the links below:

BBC News, August 26th

The Eastern Daily Press, August 24th

The Sunday Mirror, August 27th

Now a few quick words about Prague then back to chores.

Jo's Pa Bob has come out to meet us for the weekend and has been thoroughly spoiling us. We're staying in a luxurious apartment in Old Town, overlooking the river, and last night he took us to one of the best restaurants in the city, Kampo Park, where we had the most amazing supper overlooking Karluvy Most. Its so good to be having a bit of luxury and getting some rest in before the very final leg of our journey.

Tomorrow morning we're going to the British Embassy to have a drink with the Ambassador and do some press stuff, then heading for Germany.

Right, back to my list of 'Things to Do'. Hope to see some of you in Brighton on Sunday; 3.30 pm in Bartholomew Square.

xx Ants

Glad you're getting some luxury treatment. I managed about 5 hours sleep over 4 days at Reading...but will now be catching up ready to celebrate your return. Can't wait to see you soon.

Very interesting article. Prague is beautiful city with architecture going back to the middle ages. I was impressed by the Prague castle, the old town's powder gate tower and the famous astronomical clock. I had a chance to explore the Jewish quarter, also fascinating (the Spanish synagogue is not to be missed). St. Vitus's Cathedral rivals Notre Dame as a massive, buttressed church: it also houses the tomb of "Good King Wenceslas". Charles Bridge is a treasure, a great beauty. And also it is a modern European city with a big choice of Prague hotels, restaurants, cafes with traditional Czech cuisine and amazing night-clubs (I liked one night-club on the ship board)!
