Our next stop was Prague. It had an old world elegance with gorgeous architecture. Unfortunately for us, the weather turned and we got clouds and rain, not the gorgeous sunny weather Jasprit had last year. Still, it was a stunning! We went to a ballet of Don Quixote at the State Opera House and I was amazed by the talent and beauty of the performance.

Our next stop was London. We came into town just as a cold front moved in, and boy was it ever freezing! That did not stop us from touring like mad and we managed to see quite a few things, such as the British Museum and the Tower of London with the Crown Jewels. But the highlight of London had to be my meet-up with my lovely co-blogger, Jasprit! It was our first time meeting but I felt like old friends because we literally email back and forth everyday. We ditched my husband and took off riding the tube, shopping, and having lunch together. Of course we stopped at the famous Waterstone's (5 glorious stories of books!) and spent a good hour and a half gossiping books in the YA section. Jasprit showed considerable strength and bought only two books. I had to forgo any book purchases as my luggage was at it's limits at the start of our trip and I had already bought souvenirs and gifts *sobs*!

Our last stop was Bath, the setting for two of Jane Austen's novels. It has rolling green hills, Roman Baths, and beautiful ancient buildings.

Anyhow, sorry for the incredibly LONG post. I had an amazing time, but it's good to be home!
