so im heading off to the Czech Republic Feb.5. Im staying for a month. I get to stay for free since my friends just moved there and have an extra room. I will be in the middle of the old town right by the big clock. Im going to Germany and Ukraine as well. Any tips?
No i havent. This will only be my Second time off the east coast!
I will take tons of pics!
Its going to be wicked awesome! Get to have "real" beer(Germany) good and dark!
My parents said they would watch Tito for me...FREE! They love him. I think the hardest for me is to leave him for so long. There is so much to worry about. I wrote out this huge list of what i need my parents to do for him. like for feeding, playing, walking, vets, commands, how to greet people, that kind of stuff. They know most of it so i shouldnt worry. and now im just rambling on so i will stop!
hmm, trying to think of some tips for someone who's never been out of the US?!?! Take lots of pictures, bring lots of money! You will definitely want to buy lots and lots of stuff! And the Euro is worth more than the dollar. Definitely take tours of the castles if they are open. There's lots of countries you can go visit on day trips. Poland is close by as well. As is Austria. DON'T go to Ikea while you are there, they are exactly like ours :) Definitely go to Berlin and see where the wall stood. Every once in a while you will see a piece of the wall. Have fun!
Oh and are you taking a night flight? If you are not a good sleeper on the plane, make sure you sleep alot two days before hand. It's a LONG flight! Jet lag is ok going there, it's a B**** coming back!!!
ya thats what i was worried about..the plane ride. I cant sleep on things that move. I leave Boston at 1:25pm on Wend. and will get to Prague at 9:10am Thursday. So i figure sonce im getting there in the morn. i wont go to bed untill night, then i will be in the routine of there time zone. so pretty much the first day will suck! But im excited to see my friends more then anything. Its hard when people you are so close to move wicked far away!
I suggest you bring dremamine if you get motion sickness, although flights are usually pretty smooth. Also, bring a dvd player or laptop and some movies, or books if you can't sleep you can at least take your mind off, as the flight is very long.
Another tip, pack tylenol, pepto and dayquil or something along those lines. Rarely, can you buy these overseas and you do want to be prepared if you feel sick....even if it's just a head cold!
When you visit Germany, do NOT miss out on visiting a few of the castles. I spent a year in Aschaffenburg, and it was a wonderful experience. The Johannisburg castle is awesome. They have the most beautiful parks in the world also. Have a fun and safe trip and enjoy !!
If you are a dog and your owner suggests that you wear a sweater, suggest that he wear a tail.
ya im going to bring my laptop, a book, ipod, and itouch. i hope that keeps me busy on the plane. as for motion sickness i dont get it.my dad is a piolet so im used to flying. and for meds...i dont take them. idk im weird like that, i want my body to fight off everything with out any meds. so im good on that part. My friends actully asked me to bring them cold meds. haha.
I will visit the castles! Im more excited about the beer then anything else.
My parents keep telling me to email them at least twice. haha. Strange how us young ones dont like to email our parents...
I would personally love to tour any of the concentration camps that are in your area. I know Auschwitz is open to tours as my in-laws were there a few years ago. They said it is a very moving experience to see where so many suffered under the cruelty of the Nazi rule. This kind of thing is very interesting to me; I teach English/Language Arts and we do lots of study with this when reading "Diary of Anne Frank" or "The Hiding Place". If you plan on going to the camps, these would be good books to read on your long flight. Have a great time and be safe!
