Sickness and Siteseeing

We woke up to another beautiful sunny day in Prague.  Unfortunately Brennig also woke up to an upset stomach.  We walked all morning around Prague, enjoying the amazing views and seeing the wonderful Charles Bridge and Prague Castle, but Brennig kept saying he felt yucky.  After lunch and getting enough water, he finally felt much better.  Unfortunately, Eric also was sick.  We didn’t know then, but by nightfall on Sunday, he was very croupy.  Despite all these setbacks, we managed to see the amazing sights of Prague.  Some of my favourite books of my teenage years were Bodie Thoene’s Zion Chronicles.  One of them was called Prague Counterpoint.  Before we left, I took the book and tried to find the Prague places mentioned in it and I wrote them down.  It was so much fun to walk to places in the book.  Here are some pictures of those places and few more thrown in.

  1. O thanks! I’m in the process of rereading the Zion Chronicles. Thoene’s books are some of my all-time favs!! Hope your kids will also find them favs in years to come.
