    I’ve just spoken to someone about the Prague Food Festival actually. He was telling me it was really amazing and wasn’t just food from the Czech Republic either – there was Japanese, German, French as well as the traditional Czech grub. I really wished I’d been there this year, as just like your photos, he brought back some really beautiful photos that show an amazing city and castle.

    I’m hoping (fingers crossed!) that my hubby and I can book some city breaks in Prague for 2013 and hopefully enjoy either the literary festival, the music festival or, my choice, the food festival. I love the idea of the wine tasting too – always fancied myself a bit of a wannabe sommelier 🙂 – and if I can convince my partner that there’ll be plenty of ales and pilsner for him to try to, I’m sure he’ll agree to let us go.

    Thank you for the great idea… I’m off to work on convincing him now!
