Day 21: Less like work than you can imagine

Think about the one thing you are absolutely expert in, something that you also have a passion for, and something you never tire of talking about or putting others onto. If you can get paid to do this, life would be doubly better than just waiting for free days from work. That’s what I’m feeling about with teaching English to business folk here in Prague.

Go on, quit your day job. I dare you!

(gotta tip my hat to Chris for that line)

I’m thinking about taking a day trip outside of Prague this weekend. Do a little castling. I’ve found a couple websites with good photos (enticing tourism) … hrady.czczechtour … but haven’t found the way to get there. There are several just an hour or less by train or bus, somewhere’s in the hills north, west, south, and east. I just have to figure out how to get to one or two in a single trip. I can imagine getting terribly lost. Sounds like my kind’a day!

Uncle Mark, you should totally go to the one called Prague Castle. It looks beautiful, and two of my ancestors, Vladislaus II of Hungary and Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand II built parts of it. Have lots of fun!

Yeah, Mikayla … Hradcany is THE castle in Prague, and I go there often to sit in the royal gardens to read. Not sure where you get Czech ancestors, though. 🙂

The Czech ancestors are courtesy my royal descent from Louis XV of France. And to note, they were not particularly Czech. Vladislaus was Hungarian/Romanian, and Ferdinand was of Dutch and Spanish heritage(and he even had the stupid-looking Habsburg jaw to remind him of it).
