You probably know that I’m starting my Go with Oh guest-blogging stint in November and that I’m going to Florence and Paris. Today, as promised, I’m disclosing another city on my European tour.
I’m going to Go with Oh to Prague!
I’ll be really honest. Prague is a bit of a mystery to me, but that’s part of the reason why I picked it. I do know about the Charles Bridge, Prague Castle, the Astronomical Clock, Wenceslas Square, and the many different types of architecture throughout the city. Oh, and I am well aware of their famous beer, too! But that’s just about where my knowledge of Prague ends.
There are plenty of people of Czech decent in Texas, so I’m pretty well-versed in terms of their food. Although it’s not diet-friendly, I can’t argue with a culture whose meals consist primarily of pork and beef with a side of dumplings. The rich and hearty food washed down with some Becherovka, should help keep me warm during the Czech Republic winter.
Prague is the first stop on my Go with Oh tour, and I have just about five months to learn about the city. I normally research, plan, and study until I know my destination backward and forward. But what if I don’t this time? What if I just get off the plane with no plans and no expectations?
What’s the worst that could happen? Maybe, along with my travel partner in crime, Lola, I just explore and get lost in the city. Perhaps I’ll discover a bounty of things not in the guide books. That would be a true traveler’s dream.
Who am I kidding? I’m too much of a control freak for that! I currently have three Prague guide books in my Amazon shopping cart. One thing that I won’t have to worry about is where I’m going to stay. I know that Lola and I will have the perfect Open House Group apartment and tons of travel suggestions from y’all.
Stop by again on Friday for my announcement of the fourth and final Go with Oh city. Also, make sure you check out Lola’s and my Prague, Florence, and Paris Pinterest boards.
Do you have any suggestions for Prague? Děkuji moc!
