“Old Prague was a story-book city caked in grime: ancient, soot-blackened. History lived in every detail.” ~ Philip Sington

Back to the details of our trip!

The next stop after London was Prague.

The only thing I had ever heard about the Czech Republic before going there was that the food is bad. That is not true. I love Czech food.

We only had a couple of days in the Czech Republic, so we spent most of the time in Prague, with one side trip to the village of Mala Skala.

Prague is a really beautiful city, and it was nice to go somewhere pretty different from most of the places we have been.

Mala Skala is a tiny little village (seriously, so tiny) that is about 2.5 hours away from Prague by train. Also, not that many trains pass through, so we had to plan everything out really well.

Our purpose in visiting Mala Skala was to hike up to some castle ruins (a perfect activity since I love old ruins and Ray loves hiking). Unfortunately I wasn't planning to hike much on this trip so I was wearing Toms and slipping all over the place.

It was worth it thought because the castle ruins were amazing, and the view from the top was great! Although, a little scary for those of us with a fear of heights...

Next stop: Rome.
