Prague

















+



Blue Cheese & Walnut Quiche // Mushroom & Brie Quiche

So the reason for my busyness and hence lack of posting last week was not only the start of the semester, but also that we were preparing to head to Prague! We just arrived yesterday, and so have only had one day of walking about, but it's difficult not to be impressed with even the little that we've seen.

Prague is beautiful. Everything. Is. Amazing.

All of the streets are cobblestone. There are old churches, copper-topped buildings, stone carvings, and gorgeous bridges everywhere you look. The Senate of the Czech Parliament has tall hedgerows, ornate murals, and walkways lined with the sculptures of Adrian de Vries. Even the Starbucks here is better - they serve ridiculous pastries (apple torte and raspberry cheesecake) + the one we stopped by was housed in an old church.

We only have a few more days - it's a relatively short trip - but if the start is any indication, they'll be wonderful!!
