When it comes to travel, the companionship is usually just as important as the destination. Anyone who’s ever gone away with someone who insists on calling every single one of their ex boyfriends at 3 AM after a night out knows this is true. Luckily, my dad doesn’t have any ex boyfriends and has been married to my mom for 25+ years, so I knew this wouldn’t be a problem when he invited me to Prague for the weekend. My mother was originally supposed to join him during his trip, but she started a new job (you go, mama!) this month and didn’t want to leave. Lucky for me I did want to leave 🙂 As far as travel companions go, it would be hard to find a better one. He has a rare combination of savviness (that word looks so weird) and intellect. It’s wonderful. Thanks for picking him, mom. My family tells me that I’m a lot like him all of the time. They mean that I’m dorky and frumpy, but I take it as a compliment. We had a blast together. Please enjoy this week’s photo journal!
I flew to Munich and we took a train together to Prague.
Our train hit a tractor just as we crossed over the Czech border and we wound up stranded in this train station for hours. I’ve never wanted a sandwich and a gossip magazine more than in those hours
Room service at 4 AM once we finally made it to the hotel.
I love the reflection here.
I’ve visited a lot of churches in Europe and this is the most beautiful stained glass I’ve ever seen.
They have a mini Eiffel Tower on the highest point in the city called Petrin Tower. Isn’t it cute!
While most of the beautiful, historic cities in Europe were bombed during World War II, Prague was spared which makes it such an incredible experience. It felt like walking through a movie set at some points because I’m just not used to being around such old buildings, especially in the U.S.
I don’t remember what this was called but it was basically dill soup. It tasted like pickles and mushrooms.
Beef goulash and bread dumplings. My father and I were begging for salads after this weekend was over.
Did you know the Czech Republic consumes more beer per capita than any other country? I didn’t either. What about Germany? I don’t know.
Longest escalator ride ever. Their public transportation system is quite nice, though!
I know that was a lot of pictures. I’m like the person who sits you down to show you 300 photos of them drinking a frozen margarita on a beach in Mexico, aren’t I? Hope you’ve enjoyed!
