I almost don’t want to post this as it means the trip is done and we are home.  Of course, I am home finishing the last post and and the memories flood back. There is so much to Prague and we were only there for two nights which means we didn’t even scratch the surface to this city.  How to encompass everything we saw and felt with just a few photographs? I know I am leaving out so much, but the blog would never load if I added more. Ensure we had a grand time there between the drizzles. So here we go, our last stop – Prague.
