- Here I come!
Its good to have holding pages sometimes so I thought I'd do a bit of a 'Prague epic' holding page.
I am off to Prague soon with my cousin. We are (aka I am) fairly disorganised this trip - normally I have some expectations and some 'must sees/dos' and I plot my trip around that but this time I just want to be there. My feet are itchy to get travelling again. Unsurprising my favourite places are calling me back - Scotland and Italy - but Prague is one of the last places I wanted to mentally tick off my 'been there, done that' travelling list and it is great to think I'm finally making steps towards seeing these last few places!
I'm really looking forward to a feel of a new culture. Travelling around Europe has been like wrapping myself up in a new cloak at every stop. Some cloaks have been woolly and warm, some have been light and breezy but almost all have been really special cloaks that I've put away in my mental wardrobe for future reference. I can understand why some people spend their entire lives travelling about - never settling to one stop or returning home.
I don't think I could not return home. There is nothing like being able to share those childhood memories with people who understand, joke about those old familiar things with pople who know what it means, speak the lingo, eat the food (nothing like kiwi fish n chips), be surrounded by loved ones - thats a different cloak altoghether.
That and my hayfever was much more manageable in NZ! ;-)
SO I am going to Prague. The most anyone can really tell you is 'its great - cheap beer' and apparently theres a river. I've done about 5 minutes googling on it and will go to the Charles Bridge and the castles and the churches. I'm sure Bodhi has some plans so no doubt we will have a terrific time.
The anticipation is fantastic!
