I have booked two weeks in Prague during the month of October. I am thinking that four of those days will be spent in Germany and maybe a few days in Warsaw, Poland. This will be the real test. I will be staying by myself in a country where the first language isn't English. I will survive, though. I don't go down like the a lame ship. If things work out in the Czech Republic then I will be ready for either Japan or Russia next year.
