Christie + I in Prague 🙂

My next stop during spring break was Prague. My friend Christie and I really wanted to visit Prague, but it was surprisingly expensive, so we ended by flying to Munich, Germany, and taking an overnight bus to Prague. We arrive around 6 am, and headed straight for the Charles’ Bridge to see the sunrise, but the cloudy weather made the sunrise unnoteworthy and unnoticeable. We spent the rest of the two days doing walking tours, climbing tours, and eating street food bought from the Easter markets. I think we did a pretty good job of seeing all the highlights: the Charles Bridge, the Palace/St. Vitus cathedral, the Astronomical Clock and Old Town Square, Frank Gehry’s Dancing House, and the Jewish quarter, before I headed off for a day in Budapest.
