Head to Prague to check out the Charles Bridge
I'm not hugely slushy, I'll admit. I'm not one to shower my girlfriend in roses and chocolates, preferring instead to get her more practical gifts that will last a lifetime, like hiking boots. However, there's something about Prague that definitely lights a fire under me and makes me want to express my love for her in ways I never thought I would. This is why I'm so excited that - as brought to my attention by the Chicago Tribune - the city has almost finished its restoration project on the infamous Charles Bridge.
It was first constructed way back in the 14th century (so it's a good one to visit for travellers wanting to become a bit more learned while on their jollies as well) and, according to the publication, now boasts some "old-fashioned gas lighting", which makes walks in the evening "even more of a joy".
"This much-loved bridge offers one of the most pleasant and entertaining 500-plus-yard strolls in Europe," it continued.
So what are you waiting for? Book yourself that flight to Prague and go and have a butcher's hook at this wonderful sight. Maybe I'll see you there, as I'm reaching for my credit card right now.
You might also find me - if you're looking, that is - at AgharRTA, a jazz club that About.com's Kerry Kubilius put me on to. Apparently, the line up of acts is made two months in advance, so big names could be on the agenda.
