Day 3: Nürnberg, Germany & Prague, Czech Republic.
Happy Wednesday! Hopefully everyone is doing just splendid! I know I'm feeling pretty lazy and lethargic myself. Hopefully you all are doing a little bit better than me!
Ooohh... I almost forgot. I'm guest posting over here. You should go read about my wedding mishaps! Seriously... all the cool kids are doing it.
Anyway... on to the fun stuff.
Warning: Picture Overload.
Day three. Wednesday. Nürnberg (Nuremberg) and Prague.
The day started off in Nürnberg with a quick trip to the bakery - some croissants, cheesebread, jelly filled donuts, and Belgianwaffles, and we were energized enough to survive the 10-minute walk to the Altstadt (old city).
Once there, we spotted a pretty awesome church, and decided to go inside (read: it started to rain, and we noticed a convenientlylocated church nearby).
We spent a bit of time warming upwandering and admiring, then decided to head further into the town to get a bite to eat. Oh, and to stop and spend 15 minutes getting a good jumpingpicture for this here blog.
As we left the church, we thought we were going to kill our hungerpains, but then Hubby saw an amazingchurch (he has a thing for old churches), so naturally, we went inside and killed about an hour.
Anyway, we eventually made it to a delicious Italian restaurant where I ate the most delicious calzone known to mankind. That's also where I scored this little picture (I think it's kind of cool).
As soon as we were done filling our bellies with deliciousness, we headed over to the ChristmasMarket (supposedly one of the best in the world).
And then.... we jumped back into the tiny car to head to Prague. We arrived in Prague at about 9:00 pm, so all we really got to do was explore the area around our hotel. Doesn't sound too exciting, but this is what we saw...
The candles are because VaclavHavel (the first leader after the Velvet Revolution) died earlier that week.
So. Sorry that was forever long. Stay tuned to hear about an actual day in Prague tomorrow.
Oh! And before I leave... can someone please explain this fountain in Nuremberg? Or am I the onlyone that thinks it's a little weird/odd/awkward?
