Hello lovely readers, new and old! Once again I am truly sorry for my lack of posting. The months of January to March have been not been the greatest, nor the most liberated time of my life as the big finale of my undergraduate degree sort of swallowed everything, namely my dissertation. Months of Tintoretto research finally resulted in the 8,000 word, properly bound and printed little booklet, an underwhelming testament to my activities of late. Naturally, after this was finished my lovely friend G and I felt we must get away and jetted off to a new European city: PRAGUE.
Oh my goodness, it was breathtaking. Full of history, cheap eats, friendly people and varying architecture everywhere. Needless to say, I am in love. G and I explored the sights, including of course Prague Castle, the Astrological clock in Old Town Square, ate traditional Czech food, which was hard for poor G as the Czech diet is very meat heavy and she is a solid vegetarian. But she managed to find some things she liked and we discovered that Prague actually has an extensive range of cuisine. We even discovered an amazing (and busy) little vegetarian place, which may have been the best meal we had there (bless my meat lover soul). We were so fortunate enough to be there during the Easter markets, so the square was filled with little huts covered in colourful ribbons and selling some unpronounceable twisty donut which G and I discovered is delicious! We drank cheap wine in an underground jazz bar (headaches followed), made friends with the locals and I took a million pictures. We discovered Kafka and the Jewish quarter, drank coffee in the square and put the worlds to rights. It was a completely perfect break for so many reasons and if you ever get the chance to visit, GO!
Enjoy the photos and if you ever get a free ticket to Prague, because you might be lucky enough to have that kind of life….seriously go.
Czech me out,
