A Letter to Paris

Dear Paris,

Je t’aime, ma chérie!

Underground Broadway’s completely sold out Autumn show certainly didn’t fail to deliver.

Czech Republic is the kind of country you read about in fairy tales. From enjoying the sunset over Prague Castle to eating traditional spreads on a river cruise along the Vltava, Prague proved itself to be one of my favourite cities in Europe. Miluji tě, Czech Republic!
