Last Days in Prague

Yesterday we went paddle boating on the Vltava River. It was so much fun! A big group of us rented three boats, paddled to the middle of the river, and spent an hour on the water in the 60 degree sun. The view of the city from the water is different, as we were looking at it from a different perspective. It was a great thing to do as one of the last events of the trip. Leonardo got his tan on at the front of our boat as we cruised along :). Last night a few of us celebrated the end of a journey by going out to a nice dinner and having French infused Czech food. It was so yummy!

Today we walked around the city one last time, mostly walking along the water. Prague is definitely a beautiful city to visit. The sun shimmers off the water onto the buildings lining the shore. The islands in the middle of the river house parks where people can go and relax on a nice day. The people are warm, welcoming, and actually like Americans! Tonight is the last night we have together as a program, consequently we are having dinner as a group at a local place our professors found. I’m sure it will be fun, lively, and full of emotion.

This trip has been an amazing experience. I have learned so much about history and people in general. I am so excited to come home and share all of it with you guys! Tomorrow we are getting up at 7 a.m to take a flight to Rome, where we will spend a day, then a few of us are traveling to Dublin for a few days. It will be a great way to finish off the program!

Sbohem prozatim!

    Prague sounds like a wonderful place to end your fabulous trip to Europe. Just think about your visits to 12 and 17 century buildings- nothing at home will eclipse 2 centuries. What a unique experience. Can’t wait to talk with you about your experiences. Have a fun and safe trip. See you soon.

    Thank you, Stephanie, for your wonderful blog! We have lived vicariously through it the past weeks and enjoyed it immensely! You were able to convey the most important parts of each city/country you spent time in. We are looking forward to your grand finale in Dublin!

    Did Leo read all those safety decals in Czech? No safety vest … hum. I suppose sloths can swim … or float … slowly :)
    Great weather! See you soon! Enjoy Ireland … looks like fine weather there as well ahead!

    I am so happy that you had a wonderful time Steph, and I am glad you were able to maximize your last days! It is amazing that you had the opportunity to go on this trip and it is sad that it has to end. But now I get to see you and I can’t wait!
