As a writer-teacher who lived in Prague, Czech Republic during my unconventional four years wandering the globe, this word beautifully encapsulates many of my own characteristics, and I hope, the elements of this blog.  In homage to Bohemia, my first series of blogs will be a three-part series on how to stretch your koruna while visiting Prague. Stay tuned!
