One great thing about playing in Germany this season is that I know quite a few Americans that also play for the teams scattered around Germany, and one of them happens to be one of my very good friends Miss Becky Perry. Becky and I played together for 4 years at Washington. We played her and her team Dresden and unfortunately lost, but I got to stay with her for the next day instead of busing back directly after the match.
On Sunday we took a day trip to Prague, less than a 2 hour drive from Dresden. This was my second trip to Prague, but it was great! We toured through the Prague Castle, which happens to be one of the biggest castles in the world- over 7 football fields long. the Catherdereal in the center is so gorgeous. The big ‘dom’ Churches are one of my favorite things about Europe. They are so large and ornate but intricate. And when I imagine what it would be like to build a church or any type of building nearly 1000 years ago, without the technology or tools we have. Not just building it and the sheer man power required to build, but designing it, all by hand, figuring out all the math, dimensions, and plans without a computer program let alone a calculator. Man. We’ve got it easy these days!
After the castle we took a quick tcp into Old Town and saw the city center, the astronomical clock and went over to the Charles Bridge which is so gorgeous at night.
It’s so nice to see Europe and take some time away from the daily grind. Not only that, but spending time with Beck was so much fun 🙂
