Everything passed; that was partly why it was so beautiful. ― Lauren Oliver, Panic Budapest November 2013
The ancient splendor and beauty of Prague, a city beyond compare, left an impression on my imagination that will never fade –Richard Wagner Taken December 2013 This quote is perfect. Looking over the pictures from our trip and I can feel the cold wind on my face, the wonder smells from the Christmas markets, and the sounds of the season. The city plays with your mind and traps your heart, I only hope that I am lucky enough to return.
The streets of Prague were a fantasia scarcely touched by the twenty-first century—or the twentieth or nineteenth, for that matter. It was a city of alchemists and dreamers, its medieval cobbles once trod by golems, mystics, invading armies. ~ Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone Taken December 2013
