Sonja Lishchynki, the woman behind Montecristo Travels, spent two years planning the ultimate proposal in Prague. This September, Lishchynki got down on one knee and proposed to her long-term boyfriend, Stefan Dumas, a direct descendant of French author Alexandre Dumas, who penned The Count of Monte Cristo.
When a travel blogger plans a proposal, you better believe the location is going to be spectacular. And that certainly was the case when Sonja Lishchynki, the woman behind Montecristo Travels, popped the question to her longtime boyfriend Stefan Dumas at sunrise on Sept. 14 at the Charles Bridge in Prague. Sonja poured her heart into the picture-perfect proposal, which took two years to plan. All the hard work paid off when she got down on one knee and he said, “Yes!” “Stefan was elated and surprised ― but not surprised at the same time because we’ve never done anything in a traditional way,” Sonja told The Huffington Post. “He cried. He was overwhelmed I think. But also elated and joyous. I think he was taken aback by how much it meant to him.”
