My Arrival

Today was a long day, made longer by the fact that it was actually two. After a very hectic morning, my family took me to Newark, where I left for Prague.

My first stop was Amsterdam.

Goodbye, United States!

This flight was not the greatest because I couldn't get myself to sleep much. Lucky for me though, there was a mini Jennifer Aniston marathon with Love Happens and He's Just Not That Into You. Also, I saw part of Harry Potter 6 which was the bomb. So the flight was not unbearable.

Once I landed in Amsterdam, I had about an hour and a half until my plane to Prague took off. I felt a little lost and spent too long in the passport check line, but I made it to the plane. This one was supposed to be about an hour and a half, but a little after take-off the plane had to turn around a go back to Amsterdam because of some technical problem! It was a small adventure because then we had to switch planes and take-off again, but soon enough I was landing in snowy Prague.

For the rest of the day, I got to my super nice room, unpacked, went on a quick walking tour of my new hood, napped, and went out to dinner with my residence hall. We had dinner at a pizza place and it was surprisingly good food. I still haven't met my roommate and hope she comes soon, but tonight it looks like it is just me in this room :( I also share an apartment with one of the RAs named Vendula :)

Okay, that is all I have for now. Soon, I will try to post a video of my room! Get excited...


  1. yay!!! i'm so happy to hear you're settled and got there without a hitch! and i'm sad to hear you don't have a roommate yet... i can't picture you being all alone! who will tell you you're the best?! also, bonus points for use of "the bomb."

    miss you! xoxo
