Last weekend, my husband and I had the most amazing experience as part of our time in Prague. We were invited to attend a formal event at our friends’ Palace within the Prague Castle grounds. If I had to choose one experience I soaked up most from our two years here so far, it was the Night at the Palace. Here, a photo of me (on the right) and two of my closest friends. Thought you might enjoy a peek at the setting (view over Prague), and of the magical fun.
Okay– now on to my Travel Friday Photojournal: Two weeks ago, my family drove West from Prague to Belgium, to see their beautiful country over Easter weekend. Last week, I wrote about the Dutch and Belgian countryside, which I loved. But, we spent Easter in Bruges. And, if I were to recommend a place to see for a day in Western Europe for an authentic experience, I would say Bruges.
Following, a collection of my favorite scenes from Bruges:
