I absolutely loved my trip to Prague. Prague as a city, the friends I made, the photos I took, the food I ate and the wine/beer I drank were all amazing. I finally got around to uploading some of photos to Facebook, and it made me want to relive the experience. I visited the Astronomical Clock, Charles Bridge, Old Town Square, the John Lennon Wall, several farmers markets, the Prague Botanical Gardens, Petrin Hill, the Communist Museum, Gardens Below Prague Castle and many other incredible places. Paddle boating on the Vltava River was one of my favorite things I did. It only cost about $3/hour and was a great way to see the city from a different perspective. While I stayed in Prague for the majority of my trip for a study abroad program, my boyfriend Hunter backpacked with his friend Michael to 17 different cities all across Europe for about a month. They stopped in Prague and visited me for the first few days of their trip before heading to Italy, Austria, Germany and Spain. Here are some of the highlights in photos.
In addition to all of the fun I had, I also wrote two stories. Since I knew the rest of my summer would be working at HGTVGardens, I decided to write my 36 Hours in Prague piece on what to do in Prague if you love gardens. Check it out!
For my issue piece, I wrote about the parental leave policy in the Czech Republic, which is veryyy different than policy in the U.S. If you have any interest in gender, social policy, feminism, women or babies, you should check it out and let me know what you think.
