Day 1, Prague Incentive Trip 2011

OMG, the last 4 days has been the most amazing trip I have EVER experienced in my life! I have been with the most amazing people. I've laughed till it hurts, cried with happiness, screamed with excitement and been well and truelly spoilt rotten on this fantastic journey -there's so much to share with you! I had to take 2 flights to reach my final destination from Southampton to Amsterdam then on to Prague which all started at 4am on Thursday morning. I'd never done a connecting flight before and I was travelling on my own so was all a bit nerve racking. There were no hitches though and I sailed through each airport finally reaching the hotel just after 2pm. My jaw hit the floor when the car pulled into the courtyard entrance to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel - it was beautiful! My room didn't disappoint either which had a massive bathroom with 2, yes 2 sinks....'his' and 'hers' I presume?? And a telly in there!! I was on the first floor and opposite my room was the door to the gardens - gorgeous! I hadn't actually seen anyone at that point so I went on a little adventure to find everyone. I found Shelli, Paula and Kellie waiting in reception for me. They hadn't realised I was already in the hotel and I'd been there 1 1/2hrs! lol Those Czech's are really efficient you know...;) The weather was absolutely scorching so with a few hours to spare before our evening meal I went for a walk with Pam Morgan and Paula Gorry across the famous Charles Bridge... Then it was back to the hotel to get ready for our evening meal. It was then we ALL got to meet up properly. Poor Jules and Monica had been on a horrendous journey with delayed flights but made it just in time.

(left to right - Amanda, Michelle, Jules, Natalie, Bekka, Me, Monica and Paula) And this was just the start of our fantastic trip! I'll be back tomorrow with more photo's and don't forget, I'll be randomly picking the winners of the Owl Keychains later today. Leave a comment on this post here if you'd like to be in with a chance. See you later! Jo
