As we (me and my friends) landed at the Prague airport from Mumbai the tiredness from the long 8-hour flight just disappeared. We just wanted to drop off our luggage at the Airbnb and start exploring.
But for that, we needed a ride!
Now let me tell you while planning this trip we had done a lot of research and the one thing that helped us a lot was a YouTube channel called Honest guide (yes I have become a big fan of their channel and hence the name of this blog).
It was because of these guys that we knew local taxis will rip us off, public transport was not an option given the heavy luggage we were carrying, so we booked an uber.
As soon as we got out of the airport for a second I thought I was in India! Not because of any other reason but the weather, it was freaking 32°c.
We reached our Airbnb only to realise the building did not have an elevator and we had to lift our heavy bags to the 4th floor! and our apartment did not have a fan or an air conditioner either.
(Quick tip: If you are travelling to Europe in summer make sure the accommodation that you book have an air conditioner. Also if you are booking an Airbnb and are not a light traveller like me then please check in advance if the building has an elevator)
Yeah, the start was not that great but all this did not dampen our spirit. We were all set to make the most of our vacation.
By the time we got out of the house, it was already 3 pm so we decided to grab some lunch and explore aimlessly. We stayed at the Dlouha street and this street is really close to the city centre, so while roaming aimlessly we actually ended up exploring the city centre. I realised I was already in love with the city. The heritage buildings, cobbled roads, horse carriages... made me feel I was in a different era altogether.
We came back to the apartment early as it was time to take some rest as we had something exciting lined up for Day 2.
