Our last train pulled into Prague on Tuesday morning. We found our way to the B&B we were staying at: Villa Sarka. It was very quaint with orange clay tiles and ivy growing up the side.

Unfortunately, on our very last day in Europe, we woke up to rain. It was a bummer. But we braved it in our rain coats sans our nice camera. It wasn't worth hiding it under our clothes or ruining it in the weather, so iPhone pics it would be. We set off to meet up for a free walking tour. Just like the one we did here. However, I am a total lamo and looked at the wrong meeting location. So no one was there. And it was way to late to make it to the right place.
I was so mad at myself and the cold rain didn't help. But Starbucks did and after we shopped around for souvenirs for the fam, we warmed up with a cup of Joe. Thanks, Joe.
|We screamed "tourist" in our rain coats. Worth it. Bryan, you are freaking cute.|
|This was weird. I guess the fish eat the bacteria off your feet? I'm sticking with soap.|
Over dinner, we were able to talk to Joanie about her ministry. She has lived in the Czech for 17 years. She was so down-to-earth and encouraging and asked us about things she could pray for us. Apparently not having my camera really threw me off, because we forgot to get a picture with her :(
After dinner, we went back to the B&B and packed up. Our initial flight back to the states was delayed by an hour. We were certain we'd miss both of our flights in New York and Hotlanta, but God really had his hand on the situation and knew how excited we were to get home. We made both of them!
|Is this picture creepy? I can't decide. Anyways, it's the only one we got on the journey home.|
Our Adventure to Europe was just that: an Adventure. We saw so many incredible sites, met wonderful new friends, ate phenomenal food, and experienced so much. Both of us are immensely thankful that our employers let us take the time off. And we feel so blessed to have been able to save financially for this trip.
The best part was being with my best friend. Had we EVER spent two, solid, never-apart-from-each-other weeks together? I think not. Someone asked me when we got home if we had any major fights. Major fights, no. Moments of frustration, yes. Bryan and I are a great team. We LOVE being together, doing whatever.
So here's to Europe 2011. We've already got a new list going for next time. Right, babe? ;)
