Follow the Brown,Red and Orange Brick Road

Follow the Yellow brick road has a much nicer ring to it, but I work with what I have.

My back is giving me trouble again, it's hard to sit at the desk. So I'm going to take a couple days off from blogging. I should be back for Skywatch Friday.
We are hoping to go to Munich and Prague in November and we are open to tips and suggestions about where to stay and what to do or if you have helpful websites. We have never been to either place.
See you in a couple of days!

THat is a beautiful picture. Hope your back gets better soon. You will love Munich and Praag. Have you been to Europe before? Maybe HOlland in the future?
Have a nice day

Enjoy your break.
Prague is wonderful, you will enjoy it I am sure.
The Pinkas Synagogue - which acts as a memorial to the jews killed in WWII - is a memorable visit.
Walk everywhere and take lots of camera memory.

I like your 'brick' road, no matter what color.

Prague is a beautiful city; agree about the cemetery, and you will of course see/cross the Charles Bridge; at night the view reminds me somewhat of Paris.

If you make it to Belgrade, let me know!

Hope your feelin' better by holiday time. Haven't been to Munich in years but looks like you'll miss Oktoberfest!

Thérèse said...

Don't miss the Munich Christmas Market (usually starting the last weekend of November) on Marienplatz and don't forget to drink some spiced hot wine...
P.S. I am hoping you are using a kneeling chair (a must), it helps a lot. And what abtou an inversion table?
Hope you feel better soon.

Sunny said...

What a great picture with a lot of wonderful things to look at. I like the bridge in the background.
Take care and I hope your back feels better soon.

What a beautiful and lovely shot !! Great location..Unseen Rajasthan

Just back from Munich. Be sure to stay in the inner circle if you want to be in walking distance of the center around Marienplatz. eware: The area around the train station is a little red light districty. We stayed at Hotel Reinbold and were not particularly impressed. Wouldn't recommend it.

Cheryl said...

Really like this shot. So many contrasts. Hope you are feeling better very soon, and take care of your back. I have been down that road many many times and sympathize with you. Will look forward to Friday then!

cieldequimper said...

Oh my, there is SO much to do and see in both cities. How long are you staying and when exactly in November?
I love the sense of space in this photo.

Asta said...

Hi James,

Beautiful shot. I love the ship! It's fantastic!

Munich and Prague? Boy - where shall we start...... You'll love both cities, I'm sure. And you'll have images to photograph for the next 1000 years (almost-:)

You do right to rest for a couple of days. Hope you get better soon.

Tacke care!

Best regards
Asta

Tall ship, interesting building, curving walk, beautiful sky all make a great pic.
Hope the back is better soon, too much time at the computer is not good, walking is better.

Love the way the orange brick road leads your eye into the ohoto. The tall ship is interesting too.
Sorry to hear about bad back, it is annoying hope it eases soon.Lie flat. prague is a beautiful city. Staying near the Old Town Square is handy for walking to most places.We stayed at Grand Hotel Bohemia, it has a fabulous history and a historic ballroom but you have to ask for a staff member to take you on a tour of it.

Martha said...

Sorry about your back. Everyone knows that the yellow brick road is only in Kansas! Lovely picture

kden said...

Great shot, it's got a lot going on. Hurry back, I enjoy looking at your photos.

Take a good care of you to be able to really enjoy your trip in Europe!
For today, being a boat lover, I particularly love your picture! The two boats are wonderful, but the white one is very special; This shape makes me think about very old boats; have you got any information about it?..

One great place!
Just came by. My internet connection was so slow.
