The picture above is of me at the Schonbrunn Palace Christmas market in Vienna last year. My boyfriend is from Slovakia so we’re spending Christmas with his family. My first trip to Eastern Europe was last Christmas and I fell in love; I wrote about it here. Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, is the perfect mid-point to Vienna (1 hour away), Prague (3 hours away) and Budapest (2 hours away) so we get to do a lot of exploring. The best part about this trip, is that I get to see my boyfriend in his hometown and partake in his families’ traditions. I’ll be back in New York December 30th and will resume posting then. I hope everyone has a healthy and happy holiday!
