Prague 30th Birthday Trip

Yup, I’m 30. 🙂

The great part is that I got to spend my birthday in Prague with my cousin and two amazing friends from high school.  Not a bad way to start a new decade!

We stayed at the incredible Mamaison Hotel Pachtuv Palace (booked on www.jetsetter.com, thank you!) with views of the river and within very easy walking distance of the Charles Bridge and Old Town Prague.  While it was absolutely freezing while we were there, I couldn’t have enjoyed myself more.  The city has some of the most beautiful architecture I’ve ever seen.  I was sure to go out every day at around 4pm when the light was perfect just before dusk and made the buildings come to life.

Luckily for us, we fended off the freezing temperatures (think 13 degrees F, -8 degrees C) with apple strudel, dumplings, mulled wine, and pear juice with brandy, not to mention the toasty suite accommodations at Pachtuv Palace.

I had an incredible birthday dinner at Bellevue restaurant, rated the number one restaurant in Prague by Trip Advisor, complete with a sparkling dessert of ice cream covered in truffles.

I can’t wait to visit again but would prefer it to be at least above the freezing mark. 🙂
