Prague and the Longest Day of the Year

Painted Lady on Lavender

“If a June night could talk, it would probably boast it invented romance.”  -Bern Williams

In Prague, there is one sure way know that it is the longest day of the year: it is officially dark  from 11:30pm to 2:30am. Yes, we are at the shortest night of the year, and I can hardly imagine how people North of Prague are able to get any sleep … it is a really strange sensation to see light along the horizon when it should be the middle of the night.

But, I have to say now that we are officially at the Summer Solstice, that this past Spring was the most beautiful of my life. While the rest of the world has been wrecked with tornadoes, earthquakes, violent storms, and tsunamis, Prague and the majority of Europe has coasted through Spring 2011 with sunshine, 75*F, and a few rain showers. We have so many reasons to be grateful:

It’s such an amazing experience, getting to live here in Prague with my family … I’m very grateful. And I’m so glad I can share some of the beauty with you … enjoy the great days summer!

  1. If I book a ticket now, could you take me to all of those places?! Wow! You are living the life, dear. I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to be where you are now. I was an International Business major in college. Where am I now? In the middle of the United States being a stay home mom. Nothing international about that unless you count my frequent trips to Thai, Japanese, and Mexican restaurants. Love the pictures-thank you for sharing them with this internationally-challenged mama. 🙂

    1. Hi Hallie!

      Thank you so much! We are so very grateful. It is living the dream.

      I remember being in your shoes, living in the US Midwest only 2 1/2 years ago, with no hint of living overseas in the future. And then, doors opened, and since we had open hearts and minds, we found ourselves here in Prague within months. So, you never know… :o) Keep eating that great international food. (I can’t believe you don’t have a Czech food fetish. :o) ) And come on over!

      Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts, Hallie!
