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.

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.

View of the Charles Bridge and Prague Castle from the Old Town Bridge Tower
I had to get a little too close to some crunchy spiders for my liking to get these shots, but I guess they deserve to enjoy a nice view too.

If you could take off and go anywhere in the world right now, where would you go? My answer to that question 99% of the time is Prague, so words can’t do justice to how excited I was to return. The fairy tale architecture, the compelling history & legends, the Krušovice… all wonderful reasons to love Prague, but there’s something more that draws me so intensely to this city. Some of my ancestors came from what is now the Czech Republic, but unfortunately I don’t know much about them. If they ever lived in, or even passed through Prague I guess I’ll never know, but I still wonder if there is some deeper connection to the past that makes me love this city as much as I do.
