Back in Prague

Hello again Prague! On my last visit almost a decade ago, the city was chilling with patches of snow. This time the city is lush and green, while the temperature is almost tropical.

I’ve been walking around the city from north to south, west to east. There are many hidden gems and secrets in a place of this size and age, so it’s a fun challenge to find new ones, as well as rediscover old ones in a different light. As a city ages, so do we. The buildings and monuments may look the same, but other things such as trees can change a lot! I sometimes catch myself finding a place I had forgotten from my previous visit, just because we both have changed in a decade.
