KT’s Adventures in Europe: Prague, Czech Republic (Part 5)...

Mar 26, 2017 by

Near the Kafta Museum is a statue/fountain of Hitler and Stalin peeing on the Czech Republic   The last stop in my European adventure was Prague, the largest city in the Czech Republic. Prague and Budapest tie for my favorite cities I visited on my tour. Prague is a city of secret delights around every corner. It’s the city of cobblestones (have fun rolling your luggage on the streets and sidewalks), and once the  sun goes down, it’s party time. Prague could give New Orleans a run for their money in terms of nightlife. It’s a happening place that is very affordable for tourists. An average pint of beer is under 3 euros. Also the history of the city, both in the far past, and in the 20th and 21st century is utterly fascinating. The architecture and art...

KT’s Adventures in Europe: Dresden, Germany (Part 4)...

Mar 25, 2017 by

Church of Our Lady   Toward the end of my trip to Europe, the plan was to stay the last remaining days in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. In my next post I’ll show you the sights and flavors of Prague, a must visit city, but first I want to show my day trip to Dresden, Germany, which is a 2 hour car ride away from Prague (and only 2 hours away from Berlin).   Fun facts about Dresden, Germany: The coffee filter was created in Dresden in 1908 by Amalie Melitta Bentz. Toothpaste was also invented here. Dresden has the largest porcelain tile artworks in the world. It’s the third largest city in Eastern Germany. During WWII “it was almost completely destroyed by massive bombing raids that took place on the night...

Guest Author Post: MY WRITING PROCESS-FOLLOW ME DOWN by Sherri Smith...

Mar 21, 2017 by

I always associate ‘writing process,’ with people far artsier than myself. I picture them parked in front of old fashioned typewriters, bathed in wintery lighting, their berets angled just so. They have a certain number of pens lined up next to their elbows and cute stationary. They’re in full control of channeling out their greatness, because they have a process. They know what they’re doing. Me? Not so much. My writing process, if you can call it that, is sloppy and haphazard at best. I start with a random image, something that makes my head buzz, my skin prickle and I go from there. In FOLLOW ME DOWN, this scene was a rusty looking pool behind a quasi-rundown apartment block where the sun is hitting the windows in that way that turns them all...

KT’s Adventures in Europe: Vienna, Austria (Part 3)...

Mar 19, 2017 by

Mozart loves showing off his chocolates in Vienna The next stop on my European adventure after an incredible visit to Budapest was Vienna, Austria, home of decadent pastries, dessert, and classical music (Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is one of Vienna’s most beloved artists) I took a train from the Budapest train station (above) to Vienna. It was a 2 hours trip. Riding by train is a great way to get around Europe. Once I arrived in Vienna, it was a short walk to my hotel- Motel One Wien-Staatsoper. The Wien-Straarsoper is a newer, modern hotel that is very close to the main city center, and a few streets away from the Vienna Opera House. This hotel didn’t have breakfast included, but for under 13 euros, you could get a full breakfast. For some reason the...

KT’s Adventures in Europe: Budapest, Hungary (Part 2)...

Mar 17, 2017 by

I made a friend in Budapest   After visiting Amsterdam, my next stop was Budapest, Hungary. I took Easy Jet, which was a 2 hour flight. Easy Jet is “a British airline, operating under the low-cost carrier model, based at London Luton Airport. It operates domestic and international scheduled services on over 820 routes in more than 30 countries.” I used Easy Jet twice- Amsterdam to Budapest, and Prague back to Amsterdam for my flight home to the US. I wasn’t sure what to expect while visiting Budapest. I am so glad I did, because Budapest is an amazing city. It was one of my favorite stops on this trip. The architecture alone will astound you. A great way to view the city is take to a boat ride on the Danube River (I did!)....

“A sexy, fun, cat-and-mouse chase that hooked me from page one!” —JENNIFER PROBST, New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author of The Marriage Bargain   I’m a wanted jewel thief. He’s FBI. What’s that saying? Keep your friends close…and your husband closer.   Being married to a federal agent certainly has its perks. I just love the way that man looks in a suit. This way I always know what the enemy is up to.   Spending my days lifting jewels and my nights tracking the Bureau should have been a genius plan. But the closer I get to Grant Emerson, the more dangerous this feels. With two million dollars’ worth of diamonds on the line, I can’t afford to fall for my own husband. It turns out that the only thing worse...
