I'd never been to Prague before, or Eastern Europe. So seeing this new part of the world was a highlight in itself.
But for me it wasn't the amazing architecture, or the history, it was the people, or should I say one person.
We left our Prague hotel and went for a walk, before taking a tour. I'm nervous on these tours as sometimes there is only one or two people. Which, happened again on this trip.
My wife and I were the only people on the tour, but our guide was a passionate man and this passion gave us our own private tour, from a local. We learnt facts that I remember to this day, and have an experience I'll never forget.
So even when the worst happened, and we thought we'd have an uncomfortable private tour, sometimes you'll be surprised.
