Prague – Day 9

Close Another gorgeous day in Prague! We have one more full day in Prague before packing it in and heading back to H-Town. Without a doubt, we are winding down. We’ve got nothing pressing us for time so we’re just taking in this magnificent city for the last few days at as leisurely a pace […]

Prague – Day 6

Close Man, the weather again today was fantastic! We didn’t really have anything specific on the agenda today.
