Your blog is looking great! (I usually visit by Google Reader so it sometimes takes a little while to notice changes, sorry!!)

I love this one. Given how much I LOVE castles, it would make sense to visit especially if it is the largest castle on earth!!

I am enjoying all these pics of Prague. It is a most beautiful city.
