My time in Prague has come to an end! I am writing this from the airport lounge as I wait to board my flight to Paris (not looking forward to navigating that massive city at night with all my luggage!). It still feels surreal that I have packed up my life again and left my little Prague room for the last time. But this is it! The final count down.
I had a wonderful last full day in Prague yesterday. I sat my final exam, submitted my last essay, and grabbed lunch with a couple of friends. As luck would have it the weather was perfect, so we got into tourist mode and went for an explore.
We bypassed the John Lennon wall, as one of my friends hadn’t seen it before! There were a few artists at work, as well as a group of tourists hopelessly spray painting flags.
Across the road from the wall we spotted the French Embassy, and a memorial for the victims of Charlie Hedbo. It was quite moving to see, and we added some pens to the hundreds placed there.
My friends hadn’t seen the giant babies of David Černy, so we strolled along Kampa Island to pay them a visit as well.
That night I met up with a few friends for a final beer or two. I feel so honoured to have met so many interesting, diverse people on my experience here in Prague.
I am keeping it short and sweet in the way of words today as I am awfully tired, and have a lot to think about! Plane anxiety is also starting to kick in a bit too.
Next stop, Paris!
PS: Thanks Hamza and Bianca for some of these happy snaps!
