Our man in Prague: day four
3rd Nov 2011 by Travelsphere
Our website developer Steve Brewster's Travelsphere holiday in the Czech Republic comes to an end. What did he think of his experience?
There were no excursions planned for today so we had a lie-in before joining the rest of the group for a final breakfast.
Check-out was at around noon so we stored our luggage at the hotel and went for a last walk around town, stopping for lunch and to pick up some last-minute souvenirs.
Back at the hotel, we still had a few hours before boarding the coach to the airport so we decided to enjoy a farewell drink in the hotel lounge with a few other members of our group.
I'm really beginning to think that I might be cursed when it comes to airport security. Once again the metal detector beeped and I was searched, even though all of my items were going through the scanner. I think the only security risk was to myself, as without my belt my trousers were in serious danger of falling down.
Despite a strong head wind and enough turbulence to make us think we were on a ferry crossing in rough weather, our flight landed back in Stansted around 9pm UK time, a full 20 minutes ahead of schedule. We passed through security easily and quickly thanks to our electronically-chipped passports and were soon in the car and on our way home.
It has been an amazing few days. I have met some lovely people and seen a beautiful city and culture, and I would very much like to come back one day.
Finally, I would like to say a huge thank you to Jana, whose passion, humour and outgoing personality made our holiday into an experience I will remember fondly for many years to come. Like many of our group, I sincerely hope to see you again on a future tour. Děkuji - thank you.
