The two giraffe or one giraffe illusion trick
Spot the odd one out
I didn’t expect to find it in Prague.
Prague Zoo is one of the highest tourist attracting parts of the Czech Republic, voted No. 5 on Tripadvisor’s most popular things to do in Prague. Clearly I couldn’t have missed visiting the zoo whilst being in Prague for the year.
I went to Dresden!
Last weekend whilst I was hiking in Bohemian Switzerland, I also visited Dresden near the Czech border. I have been to Dresden before, but only for an hour and only to the historical centre. This time I got to see a whole different side of Dresden – one that I actually preferred.
The waiters still wear these uniforms
It’s about time I wrote a post about coffee again and Cafe Louvre, a grand cafe with a very Viennese feel to it feels like the perfect subject.
Cafe Louvre has an exciting history. It has been standing since 1902 and has had such notable visitors as Franz Kafka and Albert Einstein. But during the Communist period in Czechoslovakia in 1948, the cafe was closed down and only re-opened in 1992.
Despite a shakey existence, the cafe has a very authentic feel to it. The waiters still wear bow-ties and waistcoats, the interior is decorated with rich textured wallpapers and bright pinks and creams. Unfortunately, it’s also full of tourists (like me) who were gawping at every elegant little detail.
Afternoon tea in the sky
You would be forgiven for thinking the recent weather means goodbye to English summer traditions like afternoon teas, but ever the optimist I decided to try an afternoon tea at Altitude 360 on a very cloudy miserable day.
