I've been to Prague. It was so much fun to walk on the Charles Bridge, stare at a language that didn't even look remotely pronouncable, and read bits of Milan Kundera's Immortality {one of my alltime favorite reads} while sitting on a park bench.
If any of this sounds fun to you, consider taking advantage of Travelzoo's deal: six nights including air for $549.

A gesture cannot be regarded as the expression of an individual, as his creation (because no individual is capable of creating a fully original gesture, belonging to nobody else), nor can it even be regarded as that person’s instrument; on the contrary, it is gestures that use us as their instruments, as their bearers and incarnations.
{From Immortality}

Whaaaat?! How did I miss this incredible deal?

Um, about Kundera. I read "The Incredible Lightness of Being" last summer. If you have read it, we should talk. But it sounds like I need to get around to "Immortality."

Hi Ali! I've read a slew of Kundera books. I really love his style and the way he thinks. So unusual. Sometimes so profound. We'll talk.
