Sometimes a week seems a long time to spend in a city, however there is so much to see and do in Prague that we could easily have stayed longer. Our next stop was to the Technical Museum, something James’ dad had recommended. It took us a while to find it but eventually we got… Read More Pretty Prague Part 2
After a day of quad biking in the desert we made use of the hotel spa and treated ourselves to a relaxing massage first thing.
