Our wonderful host Luc, in the Czech Republic, created a walking tour of Prague. It was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed our day in the city, and our time spent with him.
|The Astronomical Clock. At noon the clock comes alive. Saints|
can be seen dancing in the windows at the top.
|Mark and I on Charles Bridge.|
|Another view of Charles Bridge, I can't imagine how busy it would be in the summer!|
|All along the bridge are brass images of Saints. It is believed that if you touch the plate, you will be|
blessed by the Saint. It was incredible the number of people touching the plates. You can see the affects of people's hands above. Incredible.
|The John Lennon Wall.|
|Attaching a lock to a bridge and throwing away the key is a sign of enduring love. This has|
become quite popular in Europe and is believed to be compromising the integrity of the bridges.
|A view of Prague.|
|Charles Bridge at night, even more beautiful.|

|We left the girls perched on this rock while Mark and I continued the hike up the Matterhorn.|
We made it to 2000 metres above sea level. It was quite chilly up there!
|Another one of our hikes in Leysin, just around the corner from our chalet. It was amazing how warm it was|
even though there was snow on the ground a little further up.
|All of the cows in Switzerland wear these enormous bells so they can be heard when they are in the mountains.|
|We boarded a 'car' train to travel through the Alps to Italy, so cool!|
