I’ve wanted to return to Prague for a long time. I felt I wasn’t quite done with it last time I visited, so I was glad to have more time on my hands on this trip (more time is a slight exaggeration - I only had 48 hours to be exact, as opposed to 24 in the [...]

I should warn you right away: I have unconditional love for London. Unquenchable, unreasonable, un-measurable love. I could easily list a thousand things I like to do in London. But if I only had to pick 10… they may not be the top tourist things to do, but they all mean something to me, personally. [...]
