Great time in Prague

Another week has gone and I must say, it was the best week of them all. After Venice we spent the night on the train and wisely we chose Couchette instead of seat, that means, we slept pretty much well. Arriving in Vienna we walked around the city, very beautiful and organized. We visited all the major touristic spots, took some pics and went back to the trains station, the next stop Prague.
Everybody always told us that Prague is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, that you must visit it, and so on. So, we went to Prague. We arrived there almost at night. The train station, our first impression, wasn't exactly what we were expecting. it was really dirty, old and ugly. Everything was closed and we didn't have information centers to go. So, as we had met some brazilians on the train, we decided to follow them to their hostel. When we got there the place was full and the guy there said that in that area all places were full. We didn't believe in him, but he was right. We spent some hours trying to find a place and all hotels and hostes in the city were full. Well to summarize that night, we got drunk and slept on a sofa in the bar of the hostel. However we met some really cool people from australia, brazil, england...
After that night we found a beautiful pension, right in the middle of the old town. And we have to say, Prague is indeed a beautiful city.

After 2 nights there, we spent another night on the train crossing Germany, going to Amsterdam.
Amsterdam is everything we expected, that means cool. We visited the red light district, the Van Gogh Museum, all that tourist thing. And off course the coffee shops, well that is another story.... After 2 nights there we had to leave.

Now we're in Brussels, Belgium and we're going to Paris tomorrow morning. This will be our last week here in Europe.
