Obligatory “This is my travel blog; please, look at it” Post

Charles Bridge; Prague, Czecch Republic

As indicated by the title, this is my blog. I must do it, this blog, despite the knowledge that I will get one or two views, most likely by a guilt-tripped friend. Or my mother (Hello, Mom).

I shall go to Prague, Czech Republic. (See: Pragueably. Pronounced: Prague-ably. Clarification: Pr-aw-gub-ly. You may comment on the cleverness of the title; thank you Shilpa, for your incredible pun.) I shall return a changed woman (or something like that) with the newfound knowledge and infinite wisdom that I will indubitably gain via the imbibing of worldly things. Like Czech beer. Which is reputed to be cheaper than water. As a poor university student, I’ll have no choice but to save money, of course.

You probably have many questions for me (probably not. Or should I say Pragueably not! Heh …)
I shall answer them presently, anyway.

What am I doing in Europe? I’m studying abroad. I’ll be taking creative writing and photography, i.e. pretending to be a not-engineer for two months. Why Prague? Because it looks like the place where dragons and brave knights and mythological creatures of lore might exist. Also, gothic architecture. Essentially: it is not the sterile, suburban America that I’ve grown up in most of my life. Don’t get me wrong. America is great. I love central air conditioning, capitalism, and high fructose corn syrup. But you know. Time for a change, wanna experience some culture, etc.

On a more serious note, I do hope to learn a little something about us people; maybe figure out what common threads we all share in the experience that is “humanity.” I want to know what it’s really like being on my own in a completely unfamiliar, uncomfortable setting. It’s the only way to grow, I think, and I’d like to do a bit of this “growing as a person” thing that people keep going on about.

I land in Prague on 23 May. Here is a nice picture of Prague that I found on google images. People like pictures.
