I made it!!! My 28th country at age 28!:) Prague has always been on my wishlist for years, but it was always way over my budget. A couple of months ago, I was just daydreaming in my bed and decided to try searching for a random flight. I stumbled across a promo and got a round trip ticket for Milano-Praha-Milano for only 3,000 pesos! 🙂 Half the price of a Manila-Davao-Manila ticket! I also got my hotels and tours for peanuts..as in nagaraya level! Haha! And just this morning, I discovered that my room comes with free daily buffet breakfast..wow!!! it’s amazing how God surprises me with sweet little things each day! Nagtitipid pa naman ako sa pocket money ko, so this was such a big treat for me 🙂 Yesterday, I was close to tears because my travel adaptor wasn’t working..and then I met the nicest hotel receptionist who let me borrow his personal gadget chargers. God is clearly in control of the big and small things, this was evident in the past few days I’ve spent traveling alone. So here I am, dear friends, blogging from the picturesque city of Prague.
Prague is as Bohemian as you can get…it just feels completely different from Western Europe. It’s an architect’s playground really with Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque influences all around. I found myself walking and looking up about 99% of the time..the superstars of this city are the beautifully restored buildings. I must’ve took a hundred photos of random buildings in one day! From red bricked roofs to green domes, you’ll have your camera pointing upwards for majority of the time when in Prague. It’s also a dream place for a man’s-man, Czech Rep is known for beer and beautiful women! What a combo right there..samahan mo pa ng Classical Music! You must remember, this was Mozart’s fave hangout! ‘Nuff said.
I got an awesome PlaySport camcorder from my friends at Kodak, so I decided to try it out for the first time. Forgive the shaky hands, still trying to learn how to film myself while walking. And the editing is really bad because I completely rushed it.. Low budget film lang po ito! Hahaha 🙂 Hopefully my next video clip will be much more “professional”. Presenting “Instik IN Czech!” I hear ever since I arrived they had to change their name to CHICK REPUBLIC. Mwahahaha 🙂
