A snapshot from Prague

Prague Castle

When I was a teenager, my favourite band was AFI (they still are one of them...) and my favourite song was Silver and Cold. Back in the day when we all used to watch music videos on the actual TV rather than YouTube, I was in love with the music video for Silver and Cold and decided after I had seen it from the very first time, that I HAD to go to Prague and stand where Davey Havok did. 15 years later, I hadn’t really changed and finally did it!!

For gifts for Gary, I try to get him more experiences, rather than just ‘stuff’. Don’t get me wrong, I still buy him geeky memorabilia because I know he’ll enjoy it, but at the same time, I want to see more of the world with him. What with him being my favourite person and everything.

For Gary’s last birthday, I got him a little weekend trip to Dublin so we could drink all the beer. For anniversary last year, I booked us a holiday to Prague, so I could be Davey Havok and we could drink all the beer. Slightly for me, and more for him.

I’ve wanted to see more of Central and Eastern Europe since I went to Bucharest with the girls, but Gary has been to SOO many places on my ‘I want to go there’ list because he is of the age of all the stag do’s. It was a struggle trying to find somewhere he hadn’t been so I started dropping suggestions about Prague earlier on in the year before I finally booked it in September.

Other than the little emo in me (THERE YOU GO, GARY! I BLOODY SAID IT AND I KNOW YOU’RE READING), there was so much drawing me to Prague and not just how I’m constantly inspired by the people around me who had been before and loved it.



I love clocks, there’s a big bloody famous clock in the town square.

I love architecture (part of the reason I live in London) and the whole place is absolutely gorgeous.

I love walking and getting lost, this is very easy to do in Prague... Seriously. I lost count of the number of times we walked in completely the wrong direction.

Visit Prague

Looking back on it, it was a far cry form my trip to Cyprus the following week with more walking over three days than I generally do in a week. I already miss it. There's something magical about the city that I can't really explain. It's a far throw from London (still busy though) and for me it always felt self and welcoming. The people we met were ridiculously friendly and I have found my favourite beer in the whole world.

Our trip to Prague was short and sweet and I will be going into more detail of everything we did in the less than 36 hours we had there. For now though, just know that Gary and I loved Prague so much, we're already planning a trip back.
