I'm on the road again! This time Rick and I have headed to Eastern Europe and are enjoying the beautiful city of Prague. This city has enchanted us. I expected it to be stately and beautiful, but I didn't expect the cleanliness, how large the Old City is and the sheer volume of classical architecture. In some ways we picked a bit of an unlucky time to be here in respect to the amount of tourists in the city. We are visiting on the same week that the World Cup of Hockey Tournament started and the Prague Marathon took place. So the city is overrun with more tourists than normal for this time of year. It has made seeing some of the 'must-see' attractions a bit of a challenge. But, if that is the worst thing I have to complain about, then we are doing pretty well, right?
To read more about what we are doing and seeing, I invite you to visit me on facebook. The link to my Facebook page is on the upper right side of this page.
