Prague II

Just a couple words about Prague. We spent three days discovering Prague for the second time, this time with Warren. The city never fails to impress me. We were lucky this time because Easter was later than usual. The streets of Prague are full of vendors displaying their wares. Lots to see and eat.

We stayed at a reasonable hotel just outside of Wenceslas Square. The hotel was clean and comfortable but one of the staff members was a bit rude.

If architecture is your thing, this is the city to visit.

We're Home!

After 32 days in Europe, it is always nice to come home.

The holidays were great! We saw lots, did lots, and spent lots. Well worth the trip.

The highlight of this trip was our 10 days in the Northern Republic of Cyprus. The hotel was good, the food was excellent and there were lots of sights to take in. I found the Republic safe and inexpensive. I'm not a Turk or Greek and I think they may have conflicts to come but their island is well worth visiting.

When I arrived home I was surprised at the lack of spring progression. In a way, that is good thing because now I can watch the spring here unfold. It's like getting spring three times in one year. Cyprus, Turkey and Hungary and now in Ontario.

Warren and Joe were great company and adventurists on this trip.

If you haven't already, take a look at some of the pictures on Picasa.

One of my most favourite cities that I have visited.

The pictures tell many words.
