We went sightseeing, drank Starbucks(!), climbed a small eiffel tower, saw the Lennon wall, walked Charles Bridge, and visited the Christmas markets. It was a beautiful and absolutely magical place, really.
Getting back was even more of a disaster than trying to get there. There was a huge snow storm so my flight from Prague to Munich was delayed, causing me to miss my flight back to Florence, and ended with me spending the night in a hotel and getting back to Florence the next afternoon. Other than missing class it wasn't all bad! I got free dinner and breakfast and I had time to shop in the Munich airport, and I love Germany so no complaining here!
That's life, eh? I've learned that while studying abroad. Things will not go as expected, and when they inevitably don't, you can allow yourself only five minutes to be upset, then pick yourself up and move on because, well, everything happens for a reason. Life is too unique and surprising to be planned out too well, and I've learned a lot more from the moments of struggle and confusion than when everything works out just as it should. No regrets!
Here are some photos of my weekend with my best:
