From High Above

Dresden, Germany

Dresden, Germany

From the top of the Frauenkirche, standing on wooden beams with enough give to make my stomach drop, I took in the views of Dresden. Along the river there was slight evidence of damage from the recent floods, although it was nothing compared to the destruction from the war. Old palaces and churches now repaired, brand new structures made to look old (even the Frauenkirche itself was recently rebuilt), and from high above you’d never know the difference.

Powder Gate Redo

Prague, Czech Republic

Prague, Czech Republic

I ventured to the top of the Powder Gate during my first trip to Prague, so I wasn’t planning on doing it again this time… but… after breakfast one day, I noticed how beautiful the sky was… and being only around the corner from the Gate, I couldn’t resist a quick trip to the top.

I’m so glad I did it. Even though the scenery is the same, my original photos had a dreary, overcast sky. Not only did I get a “redo” of this gorgeous view, I had an amazing time soaking in the scenery.

Sometimes I worry that when returning to a city I’ve visited before, it won’t live up to the memories. For this trip to Prague at least – and even this trip to the top of the Powder Gate – that was definitely not the case.
