For the past month, my little sister has been staying with me in Lausanne.. summer vacation and what not… and by ‘little’ I mean a 16 year old with an appetite for life. The only set back is that I have not had a ‘summer vacation’ in almost 8 years. I do get the ‘1 week at a time vacation’, or the occasional few days off after night shifts, but nothing long enough to be able to enjoy a decent ‘faraway destination’ vacation style.

Lucky enough for my sister, who was starting to get bored with Lausanne and the surroundings, I got a few days off (4 in total), and so, as an incredibly last minute idea, we decided to go spend them in Prague… Boy was that a wonderful choice we made!

For those of you who don’t know me yet, I am a ‘medieval era’ fanatic, with an immense interest in anything that embodies history…
I also love Christmas, a nice cup of coffee (Starbucks caramel macchiato is my favourite), and a good read.
Well, I can only say that I was in heaven whilst in Prague!

From the old town square, to the famous Charles bridge, the Prague castle with the majestic St. Vitus Cathedral, and all the cobblestone streets.. I was simply in love!

It is a actually a rolled dough that is wrapped around a stick, and then grilled. En suite, it is topped with sugar and walnuts. There is a variety of fillings that you can choose from… I tried the eggnog filling (my favourite snack since then.. it is what I was having in that photo), and pistachio cream (it was good, but not WOW). My sister tried chocolate, which she adored, and vanilla ice cream.

I think it is quite obvious how almost everything I like was present in one place… I would definitely be going back again.. SOON I hope…

TIP:
To all of you who are pondering the idea of visiting ‘my new favourite’ city.. You will be doing A LOT of walking while there.. so do not forget some comfortable shoes.
