Prague 2010

In May 2010 we flew to Prague for a localization and translation conference put on by the GALA organization. Our hotel was right on the river near the famous Charles bridge and across from the Prague castle.

The conference was worthwhile, and we learned a lot that we immediately put into our consulting work.

The sightseeing was also good. We walked around the city and also took a couple of day-trips to Karlstejn Castle and the village of Kunta Hora, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We were happy to be in the city the day of the Prague Marathon — the running route went right past our hotel.

Luckily we weren’t affected by the Icelandic ash cloud, but our return flight to Amsterdam and Minneapolis was cancelled, and we were rerouted through Munich and Chicago. Fortunately we arrived at the Minneapolis airport before the end of the day and made it to Rogers the next morning.
