    i think it was prague or something was an average of 10C or something but then others were between high teens to mid twenties which is comfortable to me lol

    10C??? Noooo, i like it a lil warmer. Mid twenties is better.

    but that said, those temperatures are only the usual average for the time of year, it could be much better when you are actually there :)
