A geeky girl living in the big city, making her way, the only way she knows how... no wait, that's The Dukes of Hazzard. Who am I again? Oh yeah, a pop culture obsessed writer, publishing person, and occasional nerd. And I'm getting married. I talk about that, too.

Prague = Purty!

Yes, it's true what they say. This place is very, very pretty. And I have it on the best authority (mine and Doyce's) that the beer is some of the best in the world!

Arrived here Sunday night and are staying in a rather Eastern bloc-esque flat, although the building in which it's situated is drop-dead gorgeous Art Nouveau. I'm taking lots of pictures!

Monday we hit the Old Town Square, climbed a few towers for some amazing views, did our first walk across the Karlov Most, and had a fun, yummy dinner, with some Czech folks I do business with.

Today... Castle!

Yes, Prague is pretty.

Chech beer is good if you like Lager.

Glad you are having a good time.

Hello and thanks for the opportunity to read and post on your blog.

I’ve just posted an article related to travel tips for seniors on my blog and I thought maybe you’d be interested in reading it. Here is short preview of some of the areas I covered:

- Prefer a backpack on wheels instead of a suitcase, you could pull it behind you when your back hurts or you are exhausted.
- Consider checking your bag in with the airlines, because it would become an unnecessary burden to be dragged all over the airport or the city if you are going to have a short visit.
- You could stay outside the city, in a hostel maybe, because it is cheaper, less crowded and the air is much fresher, but you have to walk or use the transport more, to get in the city or to the station.
- Most museums, some concert halls, railways, airlines, bus lines, ferry and shipping lines have a discount policy for seniors.
- Electronic devices are useful but sometimes they can give you a lot of headaches. You could help yourself with a micro-tape recorder to record your notes. It would be easier than to write and you would put them down on paper later, to share your notes with your family.
- If you bring a camera with you to keep the beautiful images alive along the time then make sure you know how to handle it or you might fail to record them not only on that camera but also in your eyes.

For more resources on visiting Europe you are welcome to visit my blog, where you can also get acces to some excellent maps of Prague and Prague hotels, together with information on restaurants adn rent a car services.

Best regards,

Michael R.
