Then, I woke up yesterday and put on socks and shoes and spent the day walking around town boiling and cursing the arrival of an Indian Summer. I have a chest infection and am ready to put my legs away, it can't be sunny again! However, I'd love to share some of my travels from this June. I delayed posting these pictures, as I have delayed many things this Summer, but I would still like to share them in these final days of sunshine.
We travelled to Prague to stay with a friend of mine, took a night train to Budapest for a few days and then a night train to Split in Croatia where we got a boat to the island Hvar for a week. It was an idyllic two weeks and feels like a lifetime ago!
These are taken from our first full day in Prague which was so humid. We were treated to wonderfully dramatic thunderstorms during the night that I won't forget in a hurry. Prague was not long after its floods and the river was still very high but things had started to return to normal.
This dress is a little big on me and I had meant to alter it but as with all good intentions....I still wanted to wear it as I love the mint shade and it was lovely and light in the heat while being covered up enough to visit churches. I bought it a few months ago from Uncle Shelby Vintage in their pop-up shop I wrote about and with some alterations think it's a lovely summer wrap dress I would get a lot of wear from.

This was taken in the hallway of my friend's apartment building. I adore art deco and there were many art deco influences in the city. You can decide for yourself if this is a dream or nightmare having multiple versions of me, hands on hips.
I recommend: The elegant Café Louvre where we brunched on Sunday
Trying to get to a ballet in the Opera House
Walking along the Charles Bridge at night
Hiking up to the Castle and visiting the Loretto Shrine to see the black Madonna
Drinking beers along the water's edge
Trying the delicious Czech dish of svíčková
Exploring the Jewish Quarter on foot
Visiting the colourful and ever changing John Lennon Wall
And, of course, braving the bitter taste of Absinthe!
Na Zdraví Praha!
