I don’t think I can really comprehend that I’m leaving for Prague in under 2 weeks! When the process started it felt like it was so long away. It was such an exciting prospect, but it quickly started becoming reality, when the acceptance email came in, and then we had to secure accommodation (which was the hardest thing ever!) and then it was Summer.
I was so jealous last month when everyone was returning to college, and some of my course were already heading off on their Erasmus travels, and knowing I still had a month of ‘Summer’ left before it was the start of my Erasmus journey. To be honest, the month kinda daunted me, because though I’ve been pretty excited about Prague, I was worried the month would drag and end up making the whole experience daunting!
The day is approaching fast and quick, and I’m really excited but really nervous. Obviously, from the get-go, I was hot onto Google and Pinterest and pretty much everywhere that could inspire us for all things Prague, and quickly accumulated a Bucket List to accomplish on my Erasmus.
UL students going on Erasmus this semester got invited to an app for UL students called CampusConnect, the app has a little pocket handbook of everything you need to know about Erasmus. One huge thing they were recommending to combat homesickness was to create a bucket list to do!
Prague is said to be a beautiful city, it’s meant to be super cheap to live in, and is said to be famous for its beer! Hopefully, some traveling will be done also, as it’s a very central city in Europe! Here’s a look at all I want to tick off my list during my stay in Prague!!
Learn some (basic) Czech phrases
Visit the Dancing House
Visit Golden Lane
Try different Czech dishes (Tredlnik, Goulash)
See the guards change at Prague Castle
Visit the John Lennon Wall and Kampa Island
Cross Charles Bridge
Visit the Christmas Markets!
Visit at least one of the 280 museums
See the 2nd ugliest building in the world
Taste mulled wine, and taste the different Czech beers
Have dinner at Rocky O’Reilly’s
Go to the Tiki Taky Cocktail Bar
Go to Klub Karlovy Lazne
Go to a Beer Garden
Make loads of new memories & friends!
I’m so excited to be heading off to Prague. It’s definitely scary to think I’m going to be living in a different country for 3 months, but I’m so excited for the experience as well as all the new opportunities that I’m sure will follow, as well as all the memories I know I’m bound to make on my journey!
I’m also really excited to show Prague off on my blog and show you on my blog as well as on Twitter and Instagram me completing my bucket list! I wonder how long it will take me to achieve everything? I have so many ideas for content ideas whilst I embark on this massive journey, and I can’t wait to bring my blog, and my social media on the journey with me!
