Quick Pictureless Update: Prague

Actual date of this event: 19-21 October

Luke and I have spent the past few days in Prague! I have been obsessed with visiting this city for years... since I saw the movie Chasing Liberty starring Mandy Moore. I had VERY VERY high expectations of this town. And for the most part, it turned exactly as I pictured it!

Since I am on my iPad, I am unable to post any pictures (or i havent figured it out yet), but you can get a few sneak peeks on Facebook or Instagram. If not, then you will just have to wait until I get back home for the full blog. Sorry :-(

Here are a few random things I have learned about Prague:

1.) there is A LOT and I mean A LOT of graffitti. It is everywhere! At first, I was very bothered by it, but I eventually got used to it and started to appreciate it, knowing that this country was run by a communist government just 20some years ago.

2.) the town in general is flat. The castle grounds are up on a hill, but not many other hilly streets.

3.) the town is very small. We practically knocked out 75% of the town on Friday.

4.) the architecture is outstanding. Beautiful. Amazing. Gorgeous. Just LOVELY!

5.) the language barrier is not as much of a problem as one would expect.

6.) drivers will stop so you can cross at a crosswalk even if there is no light.

7.) the beer to drink is Pilsner Urquell.

8.) it was foggy for 80% of our trip which was a major bummer. Wondering if Prague is always foggy?

9.) all of the streets and all of the sidewalks are cobblestone.

10.) it was colder than I expected... or accuweather told me it would be.

We loved this city and wish to come back when it is not foggy! We wish we were younger and could party late into the night because this would be a super fun place to do just that! Look for more about Prague in a few weeks! Tomorrow, we are headed to Munich! The land of Pretzels and Sausages and Beer and Beer and Beer! And Pretzels!

The Czech language is similar to Polish.
Czech currency is the Koruna (Crown). Currently, 1USD=19CZK



  1. Yep, Chasing Liberty made me want to travel to Prague as well:) I heart Mandy Moore!

  2. We have an extra external SD card drive thing that is for the iPad. It's never been used but we'll sell it to you for a really great price. Just slightly over $0. :-)
