ABD Central Europe Trip Report Part 4: Enjoying a Day in Prague on Our Own

After a comfortable night’s sleep, we enjoyed a convenient breakfast at the Marriott’s Executive Lounge. The offerings included scrambled and hard cooked eggs, sausage and bacon, a variety of cheeses and cold cuts, fruit, and various pastries. There is also an amazing espresso/ cappuccino machine. We then set off to find Trap Prague, one of the most unique experiences I have ever had. The host welcomed us and explained the process of being locked into a Communist Apartment for one hour. We had so much fun and excitement searching for clues and trying to solve the puzzles so that we could escape before the spy returned home!  The host will occasionally call to provide a clue, and you can call her as well. My kids were fascinated with the rotary phone.

All four of us contributed in some way during the hour. We laughed, bickered and fretted as the clock counted down. We had the final puzzle completed but ran out of time! Luckily, we survived to return to our hotel. We relaxed for a short while and then greeted my in-laws who arrived in the late morning. Their room was not ready, so they freshened up in our room and we set out for lunch. We took a short walk around the corner from the hotel to  Kolkovna Celnice for beer, wine, and great local food. We sat outside on the shady deck. IMG_2017 I had the potato gnocchi with apple code and beer reductions, walnuts and radicchio. It was delicious! The ribs were great too but far too much for my son to eat alone. And once again everyone loved the sausages!
