We recently spent a long weekend exploring the amazing city of Prague, Czech Republic. Prague was the latest stop on our bucket list of must see European cities and she certainly didn't disappoint. As has become our custom, Glenn picked our hotel and was once again right on in his choice. Eschewing our normal habit of staying in small, independently owned hotels, Glenn chose a suite in the Best Western Royal Palace Hotel. My first reaction upon hearing his hotel selection was to shudder; just the name Best Western makes me think of small dank hotels in questionable neighborhoods. That however, is purely an American concept. It turns out that many of the Best Western branded hotels in Europe are very nice places. Our suite had not one, but two terraces affording us views of both the Vlata River and Stare Mesto and Mala Strana and the Prague Castle.

As with all good things, our four days in Prague came to an end too quickly. Our short stay did serve its purpose of rejuvenating us and providing us with yet another glimpse of Europe's rich culture. Next up on our international agenda- Christmas in Bavaria! If only the next seven weeks will fly by.
