Pretty, Photogenic Prague


Despite spending summers in Germany as a child and teenager, my husband's experience in Europe did not extend much farther than Bavaria or the occasional ski trip to Austria or Switzerland during their infrequent winter visits. That is, until 2012 when we visited Prague together. It was his first true sightseeing experience outside Germany, and that's possibly the reason why he thinks back on Prague so fondly!
