    Travel Journal from Czech Republic Prague, Czech Republic | Sat Feb 16, 2013

    This city was amazing!!  Not only did the building change from new to old, but just the feel of it was different.  We even visited a castle and although it was one crazy hike the view was impeccable.  We were able to see over the whole city!!  Even though it started snowing something fierce it was still exciting and beautiful especially when we got to look from the top of …

    I have traveled many places and many times, but this will be my first international flight where I am completely alone. This will be my biggest journey all by myself, across the country to Chicago then to Frankfaurt then finally Florence Italy!!
