Prague Farewell: Petřín Hill

Our last day from our trip to Prague in October. If you’ve missed the rest of the posts, you can check out the Prague link on the sidebar to the right. One day I’ll finish categorizing the rest of my posts from last year! After a delicious late lunch in the Little Quarter, we wanted […]

Prague: Church of St. Nicholas and a Beer Hall

Right, so I’m almost done with our October trip to Prague. Just one more post after this… The Church of St. Nicholas is located in Prague’s Little Quarter not far from our hotel. That’s it on the right. The green dome is the same one we saw in the second photo from my St. Vitus […]

Prague: the Old Royal Palace

Prague: the Old Royal Palace

More from our trip to Prague last October… We visited the Old Royal Palace after seeing St. Vitus Cathedral. We actually weren’t planning to do more sightseeing that day because Mr. DJ still was feeling under the weather, but it didn’t feel right not to see the Old Palace. And just in case it’s confusing […]

Prague: St. Vitus Cathedral

Still trying to catch up on our Prague trip from October. Today, we’re visiting St. Vitus Cathedral, which is located within the Prague Castle complex. It was a cold and rainy day, but that didn’t stop us from hiking a short distance from our hotel up the hill to the castle complex. . Here’s the […]

Speaking of Prague...

Speaking of Prague…

She’s American but used to go to school here in England and now lives in Prague. Cool, huh? Anyway, there’s a big dance at school tonight, and Roxi’s spending the night at a […]

Prague: A little night music

One of my favorite things that we did in Prague was attend an evening concert in Lichtenstein Palace, located just down the hill from the Prague Castle Quarter. I know these shows are just for tourists, but, shoot, how often can you sit in a beautiful room like this and listen to a string ensemble […]

If you missed the other posts, you can read “Beautiful but watch your back,” “Old Town Square,” and “A Walk to Charles Bridge”..Prague’s Jewish Quarter is a living museum full of rich history. I wish we had signed up for a guided tour, […]

Planning another trip

Oh man, TexasGal‘s got this post up today about Texas Pride. I think I may have to defrost one of my single-size “emergency chili” containers for lunch. Let’s see, what else is going on? We’re finalizing our plans for our Spring Break trip to Germany/Austria. We’ll actually be based in Munich and do day trips […]

Around Town: The Hague

Here’s a taste of Den Haag. It’s a mix of old and new (the city took a beating during the Second World War). It is a very comfortable city–easy to get around by tram or bicycle (more on that another day). Great food, nice people, fantastic museums, and so close to many other delights that […]

So much to do today

Door knocker, Prague, Czech Republic, October 2007. Prague’s doors have the most beautiful hardware on them. I couldn’t stop taking pictures, especially of the locks. . I’ve got a party to put together and a few things to “stash and dash”. I’m turning our library/guestroom into the sleeping den and our conservatory is video game […]
