After a 6 day trip up north I am now back in Prague. It was my first time home since we moved to Prague 5 months ago and it was great going back. I don t miss Denmark but I really, really enjoy coming back.
First I got to visit Dennis (my canoe-buddy from this summer) and Jenny in Braunschweig. Very good people and I have to come back some day to explore more of this city.
After that I hit århus were Christian and I took a ride on his bike and caught up on everything that s been going on since last time we spoke. The day after we continued to Haderslev were Søren and Helene treated us with dinner and another night of catching up.
Finally I spend a couple of days with my sister, nephew and parents in Toftlund. Tuesday I had Magnus for the day which was so much lot of fun.
As I said it was really good to get back to Denmark – everything is so neat, cozy and familiar. But I also realized that I don t need to live in Denmark right now. A good dose now and then and then I m good for a while.
These past seven days my parents have been in Prague and it s been great seeing them again and showing off this great city. Prague has gone in autumn mode but the weather was with us and most of the days, the sun was out making the city beautiful.
My parents were in Prague 34 years ago on sort of a honeymoon in the dark days of communism, coal burning, side street money exchange and disrepair. What met them today was a very different sight. They were very thrilled about what the city had become. Almost all of the central city has been repaired and today it s an amazing trip to walk through the city both at day and at night.
They asked me if I never get tired of living out of a suitcase and that got me thinking. First off Prague is my home now, so I don t consider it living in a suitcase. It didn t take long before I felt very comfortable here. I also realized that I don t need that much to be comfortable. As long as I have a place I can call mine with a bed and another place to sit with my computer I can manage.
We are sticking around in Prague for another 8 months and then it s time to move again. Where to is still up in the air
Joanna one of the AIESEC girls from Ann Arbor was in Prague for autumn break as well so we went out and had lunch with her. Great catching up on old days.
