I must admit, I’m pretty proficient with directions. I rarely get lost in North America, and I can normally find my way around; even if it has been months since the last time I was there. My talent for knowing where I'm going, and not getting lost kind of ended when I was in Europe. A Czech police officer
It was almost 5:00 a.m., and I was inside our Mongol Rally car, trying to sleep in the front passenger seat. I had no idea the Czech Republic would be so cold in July. I packed a couple of warm pieces of clothing, but I honestly thought I could get away with sleeping in a tent, on a Thermarest mat, with the Maasai blanket I bought last year. I was wrong. I froze the first night we camped at Klenova, which is why I was sleeping in the car - the wind can't get me in there.
Architecture and history is my version of travel porn. I could walk around staring at buildings all day and never get bored - which is probably why I am loving Europe so much. This continent is full of incredible - and sometimes salacious - history, not to mention head-turning architecture. So, when I had a chance to hook up with Urban Adventures for their Prague Explorer Tour, which focuses on the city's architecture and history, I was in!
