Have you ever looked at those glossy tourist brochures promising you bright and colorful adventures that look like this?
Of course you have because that’s what’s best for business. However, you inevitably arrive at your destination and discover something a little different…
I took this photo in Prague, which is a beautiful city in a soot-covered sort of way. It still looks a little run down in places because of its time under communism and a lot of the sights haven’t been scrubbed clean… or so it seems.
Moral of the story: when planning a vacation, make sure your perspective matches that of the travel agency. Or better yet, do your own research. Your sleep deprived spouse and children will thank you while you’re all cooped up together in that tiny hotel room with no escape from each other.
