Jewels of Bohemia - September 2015

My crack traveling companion Kit and I headed out with Overseas Adventure Travel in September 2015 to see what they called "The Jewels of Bohemia." You are invited along for the ride - just remember to keep clicking "Older posts" at the bottom of each page to keep going in order. If you want to see any photograph enlarged, just click on it. And here's an image of the route of the main trip:

We decided to take the pre-trip to Berlin and Dresden, as I'd seen neither of those places (heck, I haven't been to Germany at all since I was about 7!). We were very conveniently situated near the Kurfürstendamm in Charlottenberg, and having a bit of daylight left when we arrived, we set off to see Schloss Charlottenberg, which is under a bit of restoration, but not enough to dampen the mood. It was heavily damaged in World War II and much of the restoration is being done with parts brought from another, destroyed, palace.

Gardens are in the rear, very formal, and impossible to get an idea of from ground level:
