  1. I traveled to Prague last year. I never tired of walking across the Charles Bridge where each time of day would bring a different experience. From the sheen of early morning light on the water to the mid-day stroll enlivened by local musicians and the eventual evening amble as the sunset cast a glow on the sculptures lining the walkway. It was all magic and majesty.
