Prague, Czech Republic

My fourth destination in my Europe trip was Prague, Czech Republic and if I am completely honest, the sole reason why I chose to visit this city was because I really liked the pictures that a friend out up on Facebook. It really didn't disappoint.


I stayed at Old Prague Hostel, which was quite cheap despite it's great location. I was within walking distance to many of the major spots.

泊まっていたOld Prague Hostelが安い上にとても良い場所にあったので、1日しかいなかったにもかかわらず、色んな場所を見ることができました。

The Old Town Square was a colorful village of old-style buildings and full of people.

I was walkin along the river and realized there were so many boats. I was talking with someone that I met at the hostel and she said that she stayed at one of the "boat hotels" for 5 days before coming to the hostel. She said the view was great and she could wake up with the sunrise every morning and I thought, that's definitely going on my bucket list.


Charle's Bridge

Prague was quite there tourist location.


The city was more modern before crossing the Charle's Bridge but the view changed completely when I arrived at the other side. The atmosphere changed completely and everything looked like fairy tales had taken a physical form.


Up I went some hills to arrive at the Prague Castle. I went through the gates to find a cathedral amongst some other buildings. The type of tickets depended on which building you could enter - I went with the one to enter all because I really didn't know anything about the place.

坂道を上がるとPrague Castleにたどり着きました。門をくぐると教会の他にも建物が立っていて、1つづつ違う役割があったそうです。チケットブースでは行きたい建物によって、複数のチケットの種類から選ぶことができました。

The view from the top of the hill. The view was obvisouy musky very beautiful and there were some couples taking their wedding photos with the scenery.


For lunch I went with a traditional Czech dish called the Goulash. Mine was served with beef and a soup containing some spices. 


With the Goulash I had some fresh lemonade. Very refreshing after all the walking. 


I was really looking forward to try the Trdelník, which is a dessert shaped kind of like a giant straw. The dough is coated with sugar, which makes it quite crunchy and you can even choose from other types of coatings as well. I decided I wanted fillings instead and went with whipped cream and fresh strawberries.


Prague was ten times more beautiful in the night. I sat on one of the benches at Old Town Square and just relaxed - it had been a pretty crazy past couple of days.

夜のプラハは日中と比べて何十倍も綺麗でした。Old Town Squareのベンチに座ってゆっくりしながらとてもリラックスできました。


  1. チェコって明るい町なんやね。もう少し沈んだ感じを持ってたわ。クラッシックを愛する私としてはドボルザークが浮かんできます。「新世界」の曲が流れてるんじゃないの?日本でもイタリアンのレストランに入るとカンツォーネが流れていたり、和食のお店はさくらさくらが流れていたりします。

今日は用事でOpéraの方に行ってきました。いつもならちょっと早く出て、散歩しながら行こうかなとも思うのですが、今日はたまたま大雨。傘の上手な使い方をいまいち理解していないというか下手なわたしは、正直さしていてあまり意味がなかった様な気がします。笑 さすがに歩くのはちょっと大変だなと思ったので、今回はメトロⓂ️を使うことにしました。 帰りにも少しだけ入ったGalerie Lafayetteを一周してきました。高級ブランドがたくさんあり、さすがに買い物はできませんでしたが、見ているだけでも楽しい空間でした。靴のコーナーを撮り忘れてしまったことがちょっと悔しいです。ちょっと変わった形や色のものからクラシックな形のものまでたくさんあって、モール全体をわたしのウォークインクローゼットにしたいくらいでした。

前回入れなかったユニクロ。 ちょ〜オシャレでした。 お店のレイアウト、ディスプレー全てがなんだか高級感たっぷりでした。 値段も日本より少し高め?のような気もしました。

There are days when it is just not my day. Today's that day.
I literally spent all morning lying down catching up on Vlogmas videos and then sitting down at the library reading document after document for my I could not have been more mute and yet I feel absolutely drained. And I had actually intended to write a few pages for my thesis but I have absolutely no motivation and ended up doing the "easy stuff" and just collected data.

On a brighter note, I finally got a haircut. My reason for liking to have shorter hair in the winter is quite simple: I hate having my hair get static-y after wrapping it around with my scarf. Japan has this wonderful opportunity to be a "Cut Model" and get a haircut for maybe a fourth or a fifth of the original price. Basically, trainees or assistants of the salons practice different styles on you and maybe snap a few before and after photos. Some people prefer to have their hair done by professionals but ho…


Hello again.
I'm alive and well and slightly busier/have more responsibility on my hands  since the last time that I posted. Let's just first begin by saying that I am officially a college graduate. Here's the cake and plate of gigantic Gyozas that I celebrated with: 
大学を卒業しました。 台風直撃前で良かったです。 お祝い用のケーキと巨大餃子。

I'm starting my new job soon in Hakata, which is located in the Fukuoka prefecture.  I've moved into my new apartment, which I'm really loving but the last two months have just been such a whirlwind of prepping for graduation, moving, and getting things ready for my new job, that I'm just glad I can see finally start seeing an end to the commotion. Of course work is going to be a whole new journey but for the time being, I'm glad I have a roof over my head. My room has this loft and the stairs going up to it is basically a bunch of shelves. It's my bookshelf for now and it's looking pretty cool. I have a couple more books getting sent over an…
