A semester spent in Europe

Hello Family and Friends! Since I am so busy taking class, traveling, meeting new friends, and touring Europe, I've decided to make a blog so that you can follow me on my adventures! Though I wish each and every one of you could be on my amazing adventure with me... I thought this would be the best way for you to see all of the beautiful things that I am fortunate enough to see everyday!

Cesky Krumlov - A beautiful Czech Town

This past weekend we spent a day in a beautiful Czech Republic town - Cesky Krumlov. Its about a 3 hour bus ride from the center of Prague. The town was so beautiful that I felt like I was in a fairytale. The town is so small... You could walk end to end in about 15 minutes. The main tourist site is the old castle that is located there... The town is built around a snake river so we ate lunch right along the river with a view of the huge Castle! Here are some pictures!

14th century and was completed in the early 15th century.
