Last Tuesday was a state holiday and M and I went on a little outing. Instead of staying home we went to Prague’s city center and had quite a nice trip. Our adventure started in good form – with lunch at a place called At the Blind Cat. We had delicious crepes (that is their specialty), pictured below is the one I had (it was with warm raspberries and vanilla ice cream and whipped cream, yum) – M had a salty crepe (I’ve never had one before and was surprised that the dough was different). We also had soup (mine was tomato, yum) and we shared an additional crepe for desert (with blueberries and cream) – so suffice to say we were stuffed (I could hardly move).
Anyways, we had to walk all the sugar off, so we went to Letna and had a lovely walk. We don’t live that far away from this place (twenty minutes by tram) but we hardly ever go here. But I love it here, the view of the city is enchanting and at the same time you’re in a beautiful park and things are so peaceful.
I wore my trusty parka (which I have been wearing all the time now, as I still haven’t done the winter wardrobe switch-around, ops), the only pair of gloves I could find (from H&M ages ago), the hat I bought in NYC, my old favorite jeans (Mango) and the funniest pair of ugg-like boots I own:
They’re from Iron Fist and are the Lounge Leopard Fugg boots. I love these shoes even though I totally agree that they are seriously ugly, but whatever. It was a lovely day, I was incredibly comfortable in my outfit and all cozy and warm.
I think that sometimes living in a city can make you forget about the magic that surrounds you. The day-to-day stuff, the stress, it can blur out Prague’s mesmerizing beauty. I know I take Prague for granted sometimes and it was really nice to try and enjoy it for a change. We then went home and relaxed for the rest of the day. It was the perfect holiday 🙂
