Easter Weekend in Salzburg, Austria

When my husband found out that he got three days off for Easter, any reason to stay in Prague for the weekend evaporated.  I turned to Google and started searching for Easter egg hunts in Central and Eastern Europe—or if that failed, cities where they didn’t celebrate the holiday by whipping women and girls.

Lisbon: 2 1/2 days with a toddler

Tour of Prague: Old Town Square

When we first decided to move to Prague I was super excited about this becoming a travel blog.  I love to travel and I love travel blogs with all their pretty pictures.  Sadly, my photography skills still aren’t up to snuff but I’ve decided not to let that stop me. (And hopefully this blog will motivate me to actually practice my photography!)  So here we go with one of the first places on every Prague tourist’s itinerary—Old Town Square.
