Jessica Zafra releases her new book, Twisted Travels Central Europe, by the end of the month. I've been a fan of Ms. Zafra since high school, having read most of her essays in the Twisted series.
Many of the essays here will probably resonate with me. I visited Prague in 2017 through a short train ride from Vienna and found it charming. I stayed at a comfortable hostel with young American backpackers, likely on their gap year. I hadn't been to a lot of places, but Prague stood out. A European tour is incomplete without it. Prague had a historical feel to it as if the brick walls, when goaded, could tell you many stories. Kafka lived in Prague, too, but I didn't get to sip coffee in the café named after him.
Here are some photos during that trip.
