Since the trip was so long, and we did so much, I don’t feel like I can take the time to write out a full description of what we did every day. Prague is full of many beautiful sights, historic landmarks, and awesome brews and bars. We had very full days there, and rather than boring you with a play-by-play, I’m just going to play “one sentence per picture” with some of my favorite shots from the trip.
The plane is happy to see us!
We’ve been in the country for an hour and we’re already drinking beer.
Lots of bars in Prague have foosball tables.
Every latte I ordered in Prague was beautiful.
We went to a cat cafe! Kitties everywhere!
Got my fingers in the picture. Whoops!
The historic Charles Bridge
Ben contemplates creepy baby statues with barcodes for faces.
A flight of 10 delicious Czech beer samples. It may look like they’re not full, but in Europe, beers come with a huge head of foam; these have just settled.
Ben and Emily wandering Petrin.
There is no shortage of beautiful views in this hilly city.
In Europe, public drinking is 100% legal, and 100% fun!
My dashing husband. No, all those beers aren’t his.
Peacocks wandering a public park.
Ben likes to climb things.
Gorgeous stained glass windows in the church near Prague Castle

We had a 13 hour layover in Copenhagen. At 5:30 am, people are stumbling home drunk from the clubs and the streets are filthy.
Copenhagen is a bike city, and most buildings have these charming courtyards.
After wandering for hours, we finally found an open bakery.
Copenhagen at 8 am. The drunks are gone and city workers have cleaned up. Same statue, no garbage.
So there you have it, a small slice of our awesome trip. We got home at midnight Sunday and I was at work at 8am on Monday, after an epic 36 hours on the road. I still haven’t unpacked and I’m still exhausted, but it was 100% worth it. I HIGHLY recommend Prague if you’re looking for a European adventure. The city is safe and clean, public transit is affordable and reliable, and it’s cheap as all get-out. The exchange rate is incredibly favorable; you can get a .5L beer in a grocery store for the equivalent of $0.50!
Have you ever been to Prague? What about Copenhagen?
