A Travellerspoint blog


long time no see

Well Well.. Long time, no see. I haven’t been able to write my blog because I’ve been pretty busy lately! Thanks to my lovely girlfriend and my lovable friends Paavo, Toni, Mikko and Ville! I’m too tired to write every detail what happened me during these weeks, because a Lot has happened but here’s something:

It was 23.3.08 Easter Sunday, When I got myself to Praque and Heidi arrived there. We had a reservation in Prague1-hostel which I really recommend for couples! The room was big and very cosy, the price was good, and the location just perfect! Just 3 minutes from the National museum yet in the peaceful location. That evening we met Hanna, Markus and Tuomas. We were hanging around and took a couple of beers together. Next morning we woke up pretty early and went to see the easter markets in Old town square, it was nice – lot of booths with hand-made easter eggs, food, junk, beer, food, more junk and easter eggs. There was some band playing really weird music and the atmosphere was good! We also went around the Palladium – huge shopping mall in the center of Prague! In the evening we went to the Prague’s and maybe the European’s biggest night club – Karlovy Lazne. But it was a bit lame – Maybe because of the Monday and only 3 floors open.. After that we hit to the club named Roxy, that was better I would say!

Next morning we woke up very fresh and took a train to Karlovy Vary - small spa town in Czech Republic! There we had a very nice and cheap hotel where we stayed for two nights. Karlovy Vary is famous in its mineral waters. It may be very healthy and plaaplaaplaaa but the taste is so sick and bad.. Too odd to describe! I really can’t recommend it to anyone! But we were in the spa city, so we had to get to the spa then. There was one spa just beside our hotel so we decided to try that. It was over 2000kc (80€) for both of us and it included 3 different “treatments” ..There I experienced the most weird thing in my life – Water massage. Shit.. It was a massage with a pressurized water. When I arrived the room, There was this bath and a aged woman with this pressure hose in her hand.. When I tried to get myself to the bath this woman said to me “All clothes off” .. I was like wtf.. Ok all off and to the bath.. There I was, naked when this grandma “massaging” me with this water (it felt more like circular sawing me!) and after 15min of torturing she stopped that shit, fortunately! Then there was this cold-hot-treatment. It wasn’t so bad and I actually enjoyed it. After that they put us to the some kind of chamber, locked the door and made us breathe the mineral water steam.. Yep, that’s what they did us in the spa. :)

Karlovy Vary is a very beautiful city! It’s different than the other Czech cities and it’s almost owned by Russians and there are a lot of German tourists. That’s good or bad thing? You tell me but the city itself is really worth seeing!
Then we came back to Prague.. by bus this time. And that was a smart move! Student Agency buses are really cool! And cheap! And it was much faster than the train! Next morning it was time to say goodbye  and we both found ourselves back home..

Sunday 30.3.08
After a good “Space Club” parties in Club Fabric I was pretty tired and suffering from the hangover. Then something happened in the evening.. My friend Toni called me and asked me for my address. Ok I told it to him and at the same time our doorbell was ringing.. Wtf! There was Toni, Ville, Mikko and Paavo behind my door! Fucking bastards, they got me! They told me they booked the flight’s to Czech Republic last October.. I took my own flights on January :D They really surprised me!

After one night in Ostrava we went to Krakow – Poland. There we were 135m deep underground in Salt mines and in deep thoughts in really haunting Auschwitz. It’s terrible to see what terrible thing’s a human being can do to another. There place is worth seeing and after that you realize how good you’re doing after all.

Couple days in Krakow and back to Ostrava! Then one night in Ostrava and next destination: Brno! There we were two night’s also. It’s a nice city and I will go there some other day again! We had a nice hotel and the weather was nice. Last morning in Brno was sad and boys went to Prague I came back home. The week itself was rough and this week I will just be at home and live healthy! It’s nice to just “be” without hurry. I think I’ve deserved it :)


ps. Look at the pictures from my photogallery.
