My heart did a big flippy-flop upon check-in when the desk clerk told me she only had my reservation for the first 2 nights when Laura and I are together in a double room- she did not have my single room for the other 8 nights!!! ARRRGGHHHHH!! And they are

totally booked... You can imagine what was going through my mind.. Anyway, it all got straightened out, the reservation was there... She felt badly so gave me the dbl. room for the whole time so I don't have to switch rooms!! YAY! The room is not large by our standards, but it will be fine. Very clean and lovely bathroom, TV, phone, safe, etc.

After a quick lunch of salad and pizza we headed for the Charles Bridge and Kampa Island, then explored up around the castle area and the large cathedral - St. Vitus Cathedral. We just wandered, too tired to try to do anything organized, but covered a good amount of area and found our way back to hotel without even a map!! I WAS impressed with my directional skills! My feet are swollen from the heat and walking.. sure hope that doesn't continue!! Photos are random.. too tired to do much organizing tonight. These are a few favs from our first day....
Travel is my drug of choice....
