Prague Day #2

It's been a few weeks now since my return from the Incentive trip to Prague. I've managed to put  a little montage together of some of the photos I took, but they're nowhere near as lovely as I'd of hoped. I'm sure you've seen lots as you've hopped around your favourite blogs, I know I have and I was there! lol So it's a new camera lens and flash on my birthday list this year.

Ok so for those that have been waiting patiently, and my gosh you've been patient, this was our second day. We were up early for breakfast and then off for a tour of Prague with our guide Ivana. The amount of information this lady gave us was overwhelming. She was so passionate abour her city and I can't blame her, it really was so outstandingly beautiful with tons and tons of history. I really do think I was in a dream whilst I was there and wish I could go back again to soak up even more of this beautiful place. Maybe one day...

So our tour took us first on a tram around Prague. It was no ordinary tram either, a very old one that had been specially commissioned from the museum to take us on a tour of Prague and finishing at the Castle. It was wonderful! There was so much to see and take in that I seem to have missed taking photos of the amazing architecture and sights! You'll just have to take my word for it or have a look at the other achievers to see their amazing photos.

After the tour we were then taken to a gorgeous restaurant for lunch.  We ate in a beautiful conservatory with a glass grapevine hanging from the ceiling. Each place setting had beautiful handmade menus made especially for us and the food was devine. We had Ceasor salad for starters, Salmon for the main and strawberry jam pancakes for pud. I know it's not usual to talk about the 'ladies' but it gave us a giggle as the dividing walls were opaque perspex! Good job we all knew each other!! lol

The afternoon was left for us to do as we liked and it was so hot Jules, Bekka, Natalie and myself headed back to the hotel to relax and soak up the sun with a glass of wine. Just what was needed before the PJ party in the evening.

My camera really did let me down this time. Such a shame because it was something that had to be witnessed to really understand how mad it was. We started quite calmly swapping with each other,  which were amazing, then we were allowed into the room for our make & takes. The squeels of excitement were unbelievable when we realised we all had our very own personalised aprons with Prague 2011 on them!! Such a surprise! Plus we had other goodies packed into a very posh cool bag.
I've never seen such a cool, cool bag! There was an abundance of cake's, sweets and refreshments to keep us going through the evening and then it was back to Nat's room for a little photo session before bed. Again no photo. I could of sworn there was one taken but I can't find it. :(

Was this all really a few weeks ago? I needed to be pinched while I was there and somehow it does seem to feel like it was a wonderful dream. The memories and friendships from this amazing trip will always be with me though - it was out of this world!

I'll be back later with details of this months Scrapbook Kit and a sneaky peak of what can be created using it.

Till later,
