Cobblestones: Slippery When Wet

CZECH REPUBLIC | Wednesday, 30 March 2016 | Views [223] | Comments [1]

It's been rather overcast in Prague the past week or so, accompanied by rainshowers.  Luckily no extreme downpours, but it has reminded me that I need to get an umbrella, as my rain jacket isn't necessarily enough.  And wet cobblestones are dangerous!  I am generally a fast walker, but I've had to consciously slow my pace when it rains because it gets VERY slick!  I haven't fallen yet, but I've definitely been slipping all over the place.

The sun did make an appearance a couple times and I am happy to say I had a chance to enjoy it!!  The housemates and I spent a few hours in the backyard laying and chatting in the sun and I took a nice long walk in one of my favorite parks.  Spring is definitely on the verge here in the Czech Republic... the cherry trees have started to blossom and smell exquisite--they remind me of the trees in Athens and make me smile whenever I come across them in the city.  I am so looking forward to spring and summer in this city!  There are so many parks to explore and of course the beer gardens will open soon too :-)

It's weird having so much time on my hands lately.  The course had me constantly focused on something and now I'm in this pending period where I really don't have anything to do.  Of course I'm enjoying a lot of it, but I also like being busy, so there's that part of me that is antsy and/or feeling guilty about not working.  But at the same time, part of this experience for me is to really take time for myself... and I'm really trying to.  I've been attending a yoga class every Wednesday evening, which has been fantastic for my physical and mental health--definitely something I look forward to every week.  And I've been taking "wandering walks" around the city where I don't really have a destination in mind and I just enjoy the exploration.  I've come across some beautiful places and it's just making me fall in love with this city more and more.  It's starting to feel like a home rather than a vacation destination, and I'm so looking forward to getting into a routine once I get my teaching schedule in the next few weeks!

Keeping this post short and sweet.  Much love from Prague!!
