We brought up the Riegrovy Sady Park in the rubric "Our travel - Czech Republic". As a matter of fact, the discovery of it is purely a coincidence... or rather destiny once again. We had booked a hotel in the Žižkov neighborhood, without knowing that it was almost three kilometers from the city centre. On the map of the travel agency catalogue, it seemed close to the old town. But these one are often misleading because they are very schematized and they don't include necessarily the scale.
We were disappointed at the beginning, but we tell ourselves with hindsight that we would have never discovered this neighborhood and specifically this park if we had not made this small mistake. It would have been a pity because we spent memorable moments there.
Obviously, this added to the choice of the destination at the last moment on a whim make this trip to the Czech Republic really marked by unexpected.
As we were returning from Prague to Paris, something hilarious happened at the very beginning of the flight, just before the take-off: the plane began to gain speed on the long track. Everyone had carefully fastened his seatbelts: travelers, stewards, hostesses... Everyone except a young man with the look of a hippy, who found nothing better to do than getting up at that moment to go to the restroom, looking casual and with a nonchalant tread. His glassy eyes reflected the recent taking of illicit matters.
We thought the aircrew would give him a stiff telling-off, but in view of the surreal side of the situation, nobody reacted.
