Prague Surprise

On 24th of October was our wedding aniversary day. In 2003, exactly in that day, I was running like crazy to buy a gift for my beloved husband, a mobile phone I couldn't find in any shop. I found it eventually, but I did remember my adventurous search 1 year later.

So, in 2004, I decided to plan the whole thing way in advance and I thought very carefully about what I would like to give Bogdan as a present. Noooo, we already had a kid and I didn't think of the second yet!

So it occured to me that a small holliday would make it!
I really took it very seriously: I bought the plane tickets, booked the hotel, I even spoke to his boss to give him some days off, but I never told him!

The surprise was huge, he knew that we will go in the mountains for some hiking, but one night before he found out we will go somewhere else! He deduced it from the luggage... I had to stop him to take the flashlights and some other mountain stuff.

So, this is how we arrived to Prague, in the Czech Republic, it was a present from me to my man.

Prague is such a marvellous city, full of life and joyful people...

... full of monasteries...

... and churches...

... statues all over the place...

... astonishing new buildings...

... puppets and master puppeteers...

The time is re-invented...

... so are the functional objects, who become objects of art or play...

... the views over the river...

... the old library (where we saw a Goya exhibition)...

... beautiful (and well maintained) old buildings...

...with (as they say) one thousand towers...

...and (I would say) one hundred bridges.

It became a habit now to go somewere in this world to celebrate our wedding aniversary day...

... is one of our family milestones...

... every year since Prague we choose another destination...

... to become our corner of paradise for few days...

Music on the streets and in our hearts...

... wandering all over the world...

... just to celebrate the day we started a family...
