Okay, I don’t know about you, but I LOVE coffee. Like 4+ cups of coffee a day. I know it’s a bit obsessive but once you come to Prague you’ll understand why. Back in the States, I would have my morning coffee when I woke up. My roommates and I would take turns waking up first and making a pot and then go about our days, I might have stopped at Starbucks or The Market on Larimer Square. back in Denver, CO where I attended university but that…

A quick walk or tram ride up will take you up to Petrin hill where you can have a relaxing picnic…

This past Friday CEA gave students the opportunity to take a day trip to Terezin and Lidice. Terezin was a concentration camp in the Czech Republic and Lidice is a small town that was completely destroyed during the Holocaust. So many of my extended family members lived through and were affected by World War II in Europe so I decided it was an important trip to go on. We got on an hour bus ride and were greeted by our tour guides in Terezin. It was chilling from…

This video is a tour of my school in Prague called Anglo American University. I love my school because not only are my classes full of other American students from all across the United States, but they are also full of students from many other countries too. I’ve met so many great friends at AAU and I’ve had some of the best professors imaginable. I’m forever thankful for the knew knowledge this school has given me!

Having lived in Prague for a few months now, I can appreciate how lucky I am to live in the Ujezd district of Prague 5. I live only a few steps away from the prettiest area of Prague, Petrin Hill. Popular in the warm months, Petrin Hill is the perfect spot in Prague if you want exercise, mixed with the best view of the city. About a month ago, the cherry blossom trees at the base of the hill opened up and are now in full bloom. I…

  It is difficult for me to write this last blog knowing it means my journey in Prague is coming to an end. It’s not possible for me to put into words how much this city and this experience has meant to me. Never in a million years did I think four months could fly by this fast. I’ve made lifelong friends and a lifetime of memories that is making it so much harder to leave this place. I don’t know how I got so lucky to live…

The new warm weather in Prague comes with many perks. My personal favorite is the Naplavka Farmers Market every Saturday. Not only is the market huge, it is also right along the the water, making it even more enjoyable on a Saturday morning. The market is close to Old Town Square and even closer to my apartment.  If it wasn’t already obvious from my last few blogs, I’m a big foodie and I appreciate local, fresh food. I always make sure to bring a big backpack when I…

Prague is known for it’s vibrant street culture, whether that be art, performances, or food. A typical walk across the Charles Bridge and into Old Town Square will immerse all of your senses. The local street food is my favorite part of the walk with the endless options of typical European cuisines that are easy to eat while exploring the square. The amount of talented street performers will amaze you while keeping you wanting more. The reasons I love Prague are endless, mostly because Prague is a city of never-ending excitement….

I had always known I wanted to study abroad. One of my main criteria for picking a university to attend was who would let me study abroad, and who make it the easiest. It wan’t news to anyone when I said I was leaving, what surprised everyone was how long I was going to be gone. I was fortunate to have the amazing opportunity to study abroad in four different countries, and I fell in love with all of them, some more than I thought I would. My…

Prague is known for it’s hearty Czech food such as goulash and bread dumplings.
