Wait - Prague? Yes Prague! Last week has been awfully quiet on this blog (but not on our Instagram or Facebook *hint hint*), because my lovely partner whisked me away to lovely, wonderful Prague. This city y'all. It's so gorgeous and romantic, and the cultural history is just such a quintessential aspect of it all … Continue reading Cafe Savoy (Prague)
