Prague, Weeks 1 & 2

I made it. I’m 4,000 miles away from my home sitting in my apartment in Prague as I write this. It’s been two weeks since I traded the countryside of my hometown in upstate New York for the cobblestone streets and exquisite architecture of the Czech Republic’s capital city. Prague is even more beautiful in person, and I feel myself falling in love with the city more and more each day.

In the two weeks that I’ve been away, I’ve explored the city, taken in the night life, and eaten an Old Prague sausage from a street cart. The first week was filled with so many new sights, tastes, and sounds that I forgot I’m actually studying over here. Classes started last week, and I’m in the middle of completing my first batch of homework. Although my classes are probably the least thrilling part of my study abroad experience,  they provide me with the opportunity to interact with a wide array of international students. I have a class with students from France, Guatemala, Bosnia, Kazakstan, and of course the Czech Republic. It couldn’t be more exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time.

So, like I’ve done in previous posts, I’m going to let pictures of my time spent in Prague do the talking. This will be the first of many posts detailing my travels throughout Europe. The adventure has just begun.

Actually impressed with the street food that ranges from Prague sausages to fried cheese.

My goal is to post another batch of photos each week, both featuring the Czech Republic and other countries I’ll be visiting. I’m off to Budapest this weekend, and I couldn’t be more excited.

Until next time,

Morgan
