If you haven’t noticed traveling is a huge passion of mine and I just can’t get enough of it. It doesn’t always have to be a big elaborate trip but escaping the ins and outs of every day life will always be moments I cherish. I know everyone has different goals and different priorities, but I am much more an experience person than a materialistic person. It’s all about where you choose to spend your money and what means the most to you.
I am beyond thankful that Eric’s company has sent him to some pretty amazing countries. He’s been on a handful of other trips that I haven’t been able to tag along on, but now that the boys are a little older, it’s made escaping for some quality couple time a little bit easier. Don’t get me wrong, it’s never easy leaving them, but I think those moments to break away and be a couple are so so important in a marriage.
Eric had already been to Prague previously for work but this was my first time having the opportunity to visit. I was really excited because I’m part Czech and it’s the country where my grandpop immigrated from. Being able to explore a little more of my background was a really cool experience. The country, and Prague specifically, was just as beautiful as I imagined. There is so much old world charm here that in certain parts you felt like you were going back in time. I know a lot of Europe is like this but for some reason it felt a bit different here.
We had so much fun doing the touristy things and crossing places off our list that we wanted to see. We visited the Prague Castle which is right in town and sits up on a hill over looking the city. The views were absolutely amazing! I had to take a picture with one of the guards there who was less than amused at my attempts to make him laugh, but I thought it was pretty funny.
The town also has so many great options to try some traditional foods and new favorites. There honestly wasn’t a thing that I didn’t like. Actually, that’s not true. I could have done without the pigeon Eric tried, and that’s not necessarily a traditional dish. He’s always so adventurous with tasting new foods while I’m over here gagging and trying to keep it together.
