Back From Prague

Post placeholder image

I am back on British soil. Actually got back last night. I am extremely tired from the non stop activities for the last four days, but it feels so good to be “home.” Don’t get me wrong, I had a lovely time in Prague (I’ll do a full write up later), but I also had some of my worst traveling experiences.
Two things top the list: 1.) being harassed by Metro police for not having a validated ticket to ride the trains and 2.) having my wallet stolen from my hand bag while out shopping on Saturday morning (this apparently is a huge problem in Prague). Thankfully, since I never travel internationally with my everyday wallet, they only got some loose change and two credit cards which I was able to quickly cancel. Luckily my cash and passport where elsewhere, so I was able to continue on with the vacation, but it did put a damper on my mood.
Even still, I’m not turned off from visiting other European cities. I just have to remember to be a bit more careful next time. No doubt about it, I got caught up in how cheap things were and let my guard down while shopping. So which city is next on the list? Well, I would like to go to a city where I can better communicate with the locals in their native tongue and since I studied french at University, top of the list is Brussels or Paris. But that trip won’t be for a while — maybe not until the summer. In the interim, thinking I’ll spend my weekends being a tourist in London. There is so much I have yet to experience in this wonderful city I now call home.

    I’m sorry about the pickpocketing. Luckily they didn’t get much. Like you said, lesson learned. I’m glad it won’t keep you from traveling and exploring. 🙂 Welcome home!
