Prague at Night- Photo Series

My favourite time of day to explore Prague was late at night. After dark, the crowds of tourists disappear, but the city is still very much alive. Seeing Prague’s important monuments and buildings lit up against the dark night sky, added an element of romance to an already fairytale-like city. We happily wandered the streets...

Kutna Hora, Czech Republic- Getting to Know the City of Silver

As much as I adored Prague, I was eager to make a side trip out of the city to explore a bit more of the Czech Republic. We decided to do a day trip to Kutná Hora, a sleepy Bohemian town that’s only a short bus ride from Prague. Not only were there several things...

A Walk Through Prague: Part One- Prague’s Old Town

Arriving in Prague, I was speechless. I almost had to pinch myself to make sure what I was seeing was in fact real, and not a scene torn from the pages of a children’s fairytale book. You see, Prague has all the elements of great fairytale- cobblestone streets, alluring architecture, enchanting spires, and of course,...

The city has so much to offer adoring visitors, but it’s a clock that attracts some of the biggest crowds, stealing the show at the top of every hour.

Pleasant Surprises in Prague

I’ve come to accept the fact that I am an emotional traveller. On more than one occasion, I’ve been moved to tears by places I’ve visited. Sometimes it’s because I’m overwhelmed by the beauty, other times it’s because I’ve waited so long to visit, I can’t believe I’m actually there. Prague made me teary eyed...

Photo of the Week: John Lennon Wall, Prague

In 1980 after the death of John Lennon, an image of the former Beatle member was painted on an ordinary wall in a secluded square, across from the French Embassy in Prague. Soon after, the youth of Prague filled the wall with other John Lennon-inspired graffiti and Beatles lyrics, turning the wall into a symbolic...

The Bone Church- Sedlec Ossuary, Kutna Hora

Flipping through a brochure offering excursions from Prague, I came to a listing for the UNESCO Heritage Site, Kutna Hora. “Silver mining town…former Royal Mint…15th century stone fountain…” Sounds alright, but I wasn’t sold yet. Reading on further I came to this: “You also will visit one of the most interesting burial grounds in the world-...

Five Weeks in Europe- Our Itinerary’s Hits and Misses

For our honeymoon, Mike and I decided to spend five weeks in Europe. We travelled to six different countries experiencing everything from small lakeside villages in the mountains, to one of the world’s most popular festivals. I’ll admit it, I planned a very ambitious (and detailed) itinerary for our five weeks in Europe. I left...
