Who travels all the way to Prague for Mexican food??
THIS GIRL!! 🙋♀️
And I’d go again in a heartbeat.
The street tacos are the best I’ve had in all of Europe and when you’ve lived in Europe for almost two years without real authentic Mexican food anywhere in sight, you drive to Prague for the best tortillas ever.
And when you’re done eating those heaven like tortillas, walk on over to Angelato for a scoop or two of the best pistachio and stracciatella icecream in all the land. 😍
Prague has easily become one of my faaaaaaavorite European cities to visit. Great food, amazing sights, and amazingly affordable.
What more could one ask for?
One of my favorite things to do in Prague is to walk the Charles Bridge.
This bridge is anything but average. It’s a whopping 2,037 feet long and 33 feet wide. Yes, THAT big. Its presence is massive and absolutely incredible and worth each and every little step you take on it.
Construction on this bridge started waaaaay back in 1357 and took about 45 years to complete. Throughout the years, the bridge has suffered severe damage and has undergone several repairs and about 100 years ago or so they officially blocked off the bridge to traffic and it became a pedestrian only bridge.
There are 30 massive statues placed all along the bridge, however around 1965, the statues were replaced by replicas, one by one. The originals, however, were relocated to the National Museum in Prague.
While there are several statues on the bridge, there is one statue in particular that draws a lot of attention. The statue of St. John Nepomuk. Legend has it that if you rub the falling priest on the statue, that not only will it bring you good luck, but it will also promise your safe return to Prague.
How fun is that!? Well, not for the falling priest, I guess. 😐

While in Belgium, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to stop into one of Bruges most popular chocolate stores, The Chocolate Line! 😍
They offer the most unique and most incredible flavors, it’s literally just a treat to walk in and window shop!
Of course, I couldn’t resist buying yet another box of chocolates! Take all my money chocolate stores!! 🤑😆
The best thing about Belgium is that there’s practically a chocolate store on every corner and they’re all delightfully delicious in their own way. 🤗 However, I believe Mary in Brussels will always be my absolute 100% favorite chocolate shop of all time. ❤️🍫
This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t stop into The Chocolate Line, though, this place was absolutely devine, quirky and so much fun! The smell of chocolates hits you from the front door steps. I mean, who would try to avoid that?! 🤤
Enjoy the slideshow of photos below to see just how unique the flavors are and stay tuned for more posts about our Thanksgiving weekend in Belgium!

This past weekend we spent our time visiting with a good friend of mine that lives in Nuremberg, Germany and the weather couldn’t have been better. We strolled around the town and enjoyed all the goodness that the city has to offer. Nuremberg is considered the second largest city in Bavaria, with Munich coming in at first. It also makes the list for one of the top 15 largest cities in Germany.
For lunch we stopped and ate at B. Good which I love because they have an amazing wholesome menu that includes a few vegan options, too. This restaurant chain is also located in the states so if you’re living abroad and are looking for something a little like home, you should definitely give this place a try.
After lunch we walked around downtown and visited the grounds of the old Nuremberg Castle. I loved seeing all the locals that came out to sit around the castle to just chat and eat while soaking up the beautiful weather.
As the evening went on we slowly found our way to Cafe and Bar Celona downtown. Their menu is filled with a variety of items, including the most amazing drinks and desserts you could ever ask for. There’s no better way to spend your time than sitting outside on a gorgeous day while enjoying the company of good friends and family.
