Ahoj Prague

Prague is by far the most beautiful place I have ever laid eyes upon. I’m scared I’m going to wake up from this dream any minute now.

For those who have flown internationally with boujee plane service, please bear with me as I explain our flight overseas. With classical music melodically playing in the background, Janine and I’s eyes grew five times as big as we stepped on the massive plane. We had to contain our laughter as they handed us warm hand towels, toothbrushes, food, circulation socks, headphones, peas and cracker packages, and more food. We were bursting with laughter at the seams when the flight attendants did their rounds, gliding down the aisles with our next “gift” during the flight. It was like Christmas on a plane. We watched Bohemian Rhapsody, ate ice cream, and I sipped white wine as we reclined, watching the clouds pass by and the sun wake up.

Before boarding the plane overseas, I flew to New Jersey to get acquainted with the cold weather and hang with Janine. My time in NJ was nothing short of incredible. I met Janine’s hysterical family, who had me doubled over in belly laughs half the time. Our day in NYC was filled with color, more laughs, and dainty bites. I finally got to eat Patti’s famous French Onion Soup with fresh bread and melted cheese. Video at the end of our time at the Color Factory as well!

As for Prague... I am speechless. As soon as I stepped foot in the Town Center, my mouth was agape. The vibrant color, melodic music, and bubbles floating in the air was just magical. I feel as though I don’t have enough profound and sophisticated words to describe the beauty. The architecture is surreal. The buildings have such character, touched with age that creates an illusion of sophistication. I keep telling my family: Prague is by far the most beautiful place I have ever laid eyes upon. I’m scared I’m going to wake up from this dream any minute now. Living in this fairytale land is truly a dream and I’m so eager to further explore this culture, cuisine, and language. It’s only been a little over a week but I already have many journal entries, doodles, and pictures and eager to share them all with you. Cheers to the next four months!

No looking back, only forward.
