We had a little time between touring around and dinner so we made the impulsive decision to hike up to the top of the Charles Bridge tower. Best surprise ever!
We happened to reach the top right as the sun was setting and snagged a little spot to watch the sun and the happenings along the Charles Bridge. We saw so many different views of Prague, but this was hands down our favorite.
Огоньки, елки всюду и везде 🎄✨ Опять не верится, что я здесь. Ещё с начала зимы воздух начал пахнуть горячими сосисками, за которыми теперь очередь на площади Данте в центре. Аня @manakoanna_design заметила, что Данте осуждающе смотрит на все это действо свысока и говорит: «Ну-ну, ешьте, ешьте... Наедайте целлюлит.» 😁 Честно, прям так и сказал! 🤪 Посмотрите на его лицо и убедитесь 😄
"The Venice Grand Canal is one of the most breathtaking sites I have visited. Pictures just can't do it justice. 😍" Double tap if you'd rather be in Venice right now!

I walked into Europe with a bad attitude. I've been coming here every other year since I was born, but as I get older, I perceive things differently.
So landing in Frankfurt, I felt like there was something wrong. Seeing people act in synchronized organization, the homogeneity of faces, the overwhelming silence, I felt like I was in the matrix and one small glitch would throw off the robots.
It made me want to scream WHERE IS THE CHAOS, WHERE IS THE CREATIVITY, stop with the group-think!
But walking around at night, my aunt and I stopped in front of a crowded store front window to find a family of doctors passing out free cookies, cakes, chicken soup, and gluwein (spiced wine). Apparently this happens every day for the next 25 days counting down til Christmas and it's a different family every time.
The woman gave a speech on herbs and explained how herbs are medicine. She firstly gave thanks to those from different cultures who came through Rome to pass on their traditions and healing methods. And said not only do herbs heal you, but the relationships you make between each other, passing on the knowledge to heal.
If you know me, this is so my shit. Food is medicine. I loved the speech. And then following she passed out home grown mistletoe to encourage kissing.
I realized how wrong I was and changed my attitude. I'm gonna be better about being judgy Mc Judgestein from now on!
