Peru? No, Prague!

I’m sorry for my absent in writing and posting. I’ve been a bit under the weather lately and stress levels are rising more than ever before which is making it very hard to find time to sit and write. But I’m here now! Yay.

So enough boo-hooing let me tell you all about last weekend. I grabbed a cup of coffee on Saturday morning, sat myself down and decided I was going to be determined to find a place for hubby and I to have our honeymoon do-over. With all the terrorist attacks lately, we’ve been slowly backing out Paris, Germany, and Brussels. We kind of just felt like we weren’t supposed to go there, so we felt stuck as to what we should do and where we should go. Kevin kept saying, “We have time, it’s quite a ways away.” Well, that response just wasn’t going to cut it for me, so I decided to take it upon myself to figure out a place we should visit. I know, I’m quite stubborn.

We had a couple of things we wanted out of this adventure. The list included: A great place to experience Christmas, a place that is nice and cold, a country that had the probability of not canceling Christmas activities due to it being unsafe, and we wanted our chosen destination to have the unique sense of history we have been itching to see.  First thing was first, I searched a couple of websites for “Top places to be during Christmas.” I found numerous places. Iceland, Norway, Romania, Ireland, Italy, Puerto Rico, the list goes on and on. I had my heart set on Norway or Iceland until we sadly discovered that the exchange rate was through the roof so we moved on.

Hours passed and I was getting close to giving up for the day. Each place had something that was discouraging and it felt like we just weren’t supposed to go. Until I came across a list that had the top 25 places to visit during Christmas time. Prague was #6 on that list and as soon as I looked it up I immediately fell in love. Kevin said he didn’t know much about Prague, but that it sparked his interest and we decided to look further into it.

Prague’s weather average was perfect. With the high being 36° and the low being 28°, the probability of snow was higher than we thought it would be. Seeing as how I’ve never seen a true snowfall, finding this out made me very excited. It’s rated #6 out of the top 25 places to visit for Christmas. The amount of history and the building’s architecture is quite close to breathtaking. As of right now Prague is a safer place to be than the United States. And lastly, the currency exchange rate was better than if we were to visit Brussels, Germany, or Paris.

Don’t get me wrong, Brussels, Germany, Paris, Iceland, Norway, Italy, Rome, these are all places we have on our bucket list! However, we wanted to find the “perfect” place we could go for a honeymoon do-over and when I came across Prague, it as if it jumped off the screen to us. We already found the hotel we want to stay during our time over there! We are currently looking up different things to do, places to eat, and what to see when we’re over there.

Out of excitement I keep telling people we’re going to Peru! Kevin has to gently remind me that it’s Prague. I’m not quite sure why I can’t get it straight but at least Kevin gets a kick out of my mix up. It’s still six months away, but our anticipation is through the roof and it’s very exciting, so please excuse me if I post about Prague more than I probably should. 😉

Now it’s your turn, I need advice! Have you ever been to Prague? What are some of the “must-see’s”? What was your favorite part about Prague? Places to eat? What to wear? Anything! Let me know in the comments down below. 🙂

  3. I am actually from the Czech Republic but I have not been back to Prague for quite some time, I was pretty young the last time I was there so it is probably very different but it is beautiful. Hope you have a great time.

    1. Aw, that’s awesome! That’s so cool. If a lot has changed, I still hope it’s beautiful like you remember. 🙂 Thanks!

  4. I have never been to Prague but I’ve been told that it is a fantastic city with many medievals monuments. My advice is to download trip-advisor app (it’s an app thatyou can find restaurants, bars, museums, coffees shops etc. that other people have rated before so you can know if it is good or not.
    Also,a great app/website for accommodation is booking.com
    Hope to have fun exploring Prague
    Kisses

    1. Booking.com? I’ve never heard of it, but I’m going to add that to my list of things to do before we leave. Also, Tripadvisor! I’m so glad you’ve heard of great things about Prague. Thank you for the comment. I can’t wait. 🙂

  5. oh my, I’ve been and it’s still one of my favorite cities in Europe! Obviously Spend time on the Charles Bridge and Enjoy the scene. Prague is relatively small city and you can just walk to anywhere unless you want to go to places like Beethoven’s house then a vehicle is necessary. The castle is gorgeous and pretty big! Mucha museum is great if you’re interested in art. Definitely find a classical concert in a church its an experience!

    1. From what I’m reading through other people’s blogs, the Charles Bridge sounds amazing! That’s a lot of really great information. Thank you so much for your input! I made a note of this. You’ve got me all excited to go now! 😀

    1. I very much so want to go to Italy soon! One of my best friend’s lives there right now and she really adores it, like you. 🙂 Thank you so much! Yeah, it seems as if the world is falling apart. 🙁 I want to go to Paris too! I’m so jealous of you.
