Since I’ve been in Buenos Aires, the most exciting part of my day is still deciding where I will be eating dinner that night or what restaurant I want to try next. Living in the beautiful neighborhood of Palermo, I only need to walk one block in any direction to find the next trendy, delicious restaurant I want to try. Here’s a list of my favorite restaurantsin Buenos Aires, Argentina. Las Cabras My roommate and I ate here on our very first night in the city and it was…

My first week in Buenos Aires is coming to an end. I can’t believe it’s only been a week and at the same time I can’t believe the week is already over. Arriving in the airport last Thursday I could not have been more clueless about my way around Buenos Aires, what I would be doing this week, and what my apartment and neighborhood would look like. Now, after days of exploring, meeting new people, and my first week of classes under my belt, I am well on…

Throughout my semester in Prague, I’ve been able to travel quite a bit and use most forms of Czech transportation. Prague has a great system of public metros, trams, buses, and trains. Here is a some basic information about the most common ways to get around. Tram The trams run on rails in the streets. Don’t cross the street if you see a tram coming, they usually won’t stop for pedestrians unless there’s a stoplight. Trams run 24 hours a day, with special night trams that come only every 20-ish…

We had a CEA excursion to the town of Český Krumlov, a three hour bus ride away from Prague. It was one of the cutest places I have ever seen, with the red rooftops and lush green hills. We had a walking tour, followed by a traditional Czech lunch and a private castle tour. After that, we had free time to explore the gardens and shops. I highly recommend this as a day trip!

My last excursion with CEA was to the Prague Zoo, which is in the area of Prague 7. We had a perfect group size: just six. To get there, we took the tram and then a shuttle. Were we the oldest students there? Yes, but since we went on a Thursday morning, the exhibits weren’t too crowded and we could take our time. I had heard that the Prague Zoo was one of the best zoos in the world, and I am glad to have had the opportunity to go…

This week, I interviewed one of the CEA staff members that has made all of our transitions to Czech life much easier, Jessica Hankiewicz. Q: What is your official title? A: I am the Associate Director of Student Affairs. Q: How long have you been working for CEA? A: I have been working at CEA for almost a year. Q: So did you just move to Prague? A: Oh no, I moved to Prague 15 years ago and I worked as an English teacher. Then I was running a TOEFL…

Prague is an interesting and beautiful city, and I’ve had a blast exploring it! Here are some of my favorite places that I have found. Havlíčkovy sady This public park is less than a 10-minute walk from my apartment and there’s so much to explore here. It has a bunch of different trails to run on. Depending on the entrance you go through, if you go up the hill, you will find yourself at a restaurant that overlooks the east side of the city. There’s a small vineyard near…

When you go abroad for three and a half months, there’s no way that you can pack everything that you need into one suitcase. Don’t forget the essentials like your passport, raincoat, and laptop. However, there are some items that are easier (and surprisingly cheaper) to bring than find here in Prague. Things to Put in Your Suitcase  Converter/Adapter: I’m glad I brought two universal converters. They only sell them at a few stores in Prague, and it’s easier to have them before you get to Prague, like…

Check out my Czech crib! I live in Vinohrady, which is in the area of Prague known as Prague 2. I have three roommates, and our apartment has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a common area & kitchen. It’s pretty spacious, and all of us were very pleased with CEA’s accommodation. I’m so glad I get to call this place home for the next 2.5 months!

Between eating trdelníks and exploring cathedrals, I spend twelve hours a week in class, and many more hours studying in cafes. One of the reasons why I chose to study abroad in Prague was because Anglo-American University offered a wide variety of classes that I was interested in. Thankfully, I got a few cleared that would count for my major and minor as well. I am taking Intro to Marketing, which counts as a class for major; Digital Tools for New Media, which counts for my minor; Media and Marketing…
