Prague - Happy New Year

This was the sixth visit to Prague and since I've already written a lot about this beautiful city in my previous posts, I have nothing particular to add. I will keep coming back here because I love it and I consider it one of the most beautiful European cities. This time it was the first visit for the New Year and for the first time I saw how it looks like dressed in winter. Wonderful! As we did in London, we passed trough the known paths of Prague. I don't have anything new to say except that I enjoyed every moment I shared with Prague and my friends.
Enjoy the pictures!

Chritmas in London

I fell in love with London a long time ago. But the first opportunity to visit this city I got far back in 2003.
Since I didn't have much time to explore the city then, and when you're in London there's always a lack of time, ten years later in 2013 I came back but this time it in the summer. O God, how I enjoyed in long walks through the city, through the beautiful parks of London and of course in Camden Town, to me, the most charming part of London. That summer the city completely won over me and I decided, just a year later, to go there again. I did it, but this time, at the most beautiful time of all Christmas time.
I don't have much to add, as I told previously we followed the "old paths" and enjoyed London on a completely different way. Beautiful new experience of the city we already knew. I love London even more now and I'm sure I'll be back!

Christmas Carol - Trafalgar Square 2014

Last year I told you, through the posts on my blog, my experience of London. I don't have much to add. This time I wanted to see this wonderful city dressed in Christmas. We pretty much walked the same paths. Of course that London is a city that one can't see in three times as much as I was there, one should stay a little longer, but this time even if I wanted  I couldn't go far from the path that I'm familiar with.
In fact on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day almost everything is closed. The most difficult thing is that at the Christmas public transport doesn't work at all, and the work of the restaurants is limited so it's not easy to find a place to rest and have lunch. But put aside all, the reason why I came to London for Christmas come true. I wanted to experience singing Christmas Carol in Trafalgar Square where there's a tree that is a gift from the people of Norway to London to say thank you for Britain's support during World War II. This historic tradition is happening every year since in 1947. When I heard about this custom of singing Christmas Carol, I thought it was some kind of organized singing with choirs and music, however, it's even more beautiful. I was touched to the heart and I was very happy to be a part of it.
See this short movie from YouTube (it's mine and me, my daughter and her boyfriend were singing while my husband was making this, happy, happy  :)).
