On the Road is a weekday feature spotlighting reader photo submissions. From the exotic to the familiar, whether you’re traveling or in your own backyard, we would love to see the world through your eyes.
This series was created by Alain Chamot (1971-2020) as a place to share our adventures and observations, no matter where we are. 💕
I love this unique view of Prague that I doubt we would see in any guidebook!
It was six months ago yesterday that we lost Alain. I like to think that he would be pleased that On The Road lives on, and I have a feeling that Alain would have particularly loved this quirky set of photos from Gin & Tonic.
In case anyone wants to revisit our memorial to Alain: Fly Away Home

Was sorting through my (many) photos and came across a set from a visit to Prague one summer a few years back. I’ve loved Prague for years, but so, unfortunately, have lots of other people, and it’s really overrun with drunk tourists, at least Staré Město (Old town.) I much prefer Malá Strana anyway, (the other side of the river). And I won’t bore you with pics of the Charles Bridge or the Prague Castle which you’ve seen a million times. Note that a couple of years after my visit, there was a huge flood on the Vltava, and I haven’t been back since, so I don’t know how they’ve rebuilt.
The Jazz Dock, a cool little club at river level. Ended up largely under water, but I’ve read that they re-built.
The lock operator’s booth.
One of several facades I shot.
The famous statue.
