Czeching In

I’m off to the Czech Republic for a few days toward the end of September. It turns out my good pal and former roommate Bill King is getting married! After the big event in Prague, there’s just enough time for a short visit with my youngest sister in Bolzano, Italy, with perhaps an evening in Milan. No signings or appearances, just friends, family, and fun.

My wife is a saint.

  1. Too bad you won’t be around the UK way. I’ve heard nothing but good things about Prague and can’t wait to make it there myself. I plan on hitting Rome this Christmas/New Years.

    While in Italy, I’m sure Matt Tice would be excited if you were to snag him a regional Scopa deck. Scopa’s gotta be one of the best card games ever if you ask me.

  3. Prague is beautiful. Ann and I visited Bill there back around ’95 or so as part of a whirlwind trip around Europe. It’s one of the few cities in Europe that wasn’t bombed flat during one of the World Wars, and it has all the original architecture to prove it.

    Matt actually brought me back a Scopa deck after one of his trips to Italy. It is a great game, a true classic of the realm.

    Have fun in Rome. It’s a beautiful city that seems like it would take a lifetime to explore.

  5. Hi Matt,

    Will be in Prague myself for the wedding and look forward to finally meeting you in person. You can’t miss me – I’ll be the short, very round one in the midst of the giants that make up my family. 🙂

    Be warned though, there are rumours that there will be men in kilts…and that’ll be a scary sight!

    (p.s This blog system is pretty cool. WordPress you say…?)

  7. I’m looking forward to meeting you, too, Angela, and the rest of your family. Bill’s told me much about you all over the years, but this will be my first time meeting any of you.

    I’ll keep a wary eye out for the kilts. You don’t see too many of those out Wisconsin way.

    And, yes, WordPress. It rocks. I started out with Movable Type, but when I changed my host, I checked into new blogging systems I’d be able to manage myself. WordPress fit the bill nicely, and since it’s open source it will always be free.
