I am fortunate enough to marry the New Yorker of my dreams later in life. I met my husband nearly 20 years ago, and New York was a different place back then. Drinks were cheap, food was affordable, rent was $950.00 in Hell’s Kitchen, and change machine peep shows on 8th Avenue were a thing. As fate would have it, we reconnected for sushi one evening in Brooklyn, and ended our night reminiscing over the glory days with Macallan 12 and Jack Daniel’s in hand. We have been inseparable ever since. After 6 months of dating, he proposed. It’s a love story worth sharing.
Our love happened so fast that we got sidetracked with work, life, and doing for others, and as a result—passed on the big wedding, eloped, never had a honeymoon, and never wore our wedding attire. When our whirlwind finally slowed down, it seemed fitting to plan a romantic getaway to his homeland of Czech Republic. We’ve been married a year now and things have been crazy rocking and rolling.
We started our trip at the Hotel Augustine in Prague. The staff, accommodations, and suite were OUTSTANDING. As a matter of fact, I highly recommend booking them. They’re walking distance to all the attractions including, Charles Bridge, Starbucks, and the coziest beer garden that served complimentary pretzels and delicious Kielbasa.
I’m in love with Prague and can’t wait to return. The architecture alone is divine, and one could spend hours walking throughout the city in amazement, especially if you’re a fan of historic architecture. Taking photos with my Iphone doesn’t do justice at all, but it made for quick and easy journaling.
I hope you plan a visit to Prague, it’s a must. Oh, I nearly forgot to mention our wedding photographer, Radek Čepelák. God bless him, he did a wonderful job at capturing our special moment and working with our schedule. He rocks!
