I caved this morning and went to Bohemia Bagel

Sept. 28 2010

Having a bite or taste of home is a quick-fix to a bit of homesickness. While I haven’t been feeling it so far during our trip, I’ll always enjoy and appreciate something that reminds me of college and or home.

This morning, I grabbed a bacon, egg and cheese bagel at a place that takes me back to South Bend (don’t miss it) and my time at Notre Dame (really miss it). Anytime I was running late, Studebagels was the place to get a quick bite, and I could hardly tell the difference (Czech bacon and all) this morning in Bohemia Bagel. My dad said the guys here are a good bunch to know. I’d agree, but I think the people he was referring to are the staff of the New Europe walking tours—who are exclusively ex-pats. In stead, with our WSA tours, we’re trying to connect to locals who are excited about sharing their personal history with foreigners. In Paris, we had great luck, and I’m encouraged by the caliber of people we’ve met so far in Prague.

After a week in Italy where Starbucks doesn’t exist (yet), and one in Paris where Starbucks is prohibitively expensive, I’ve enjoyed grabbing a double espresso nearly once a day. A crime? Maybe. Do I regret it? Nope:)

Happy Backpackers

This past weekend a group of my friends and I decided to go to Budapest, but wanted to go with a group because we were unsure of what we wanted to do and how to plan our trip. Booking the trip through WSA was the best idea we ever had. It was basically all planned out for us (excluding flights). It was great because there were plenty of things planned for us that were included in the package, but there was also a bit of free time for us to explore the city and do the things we were most interested in. I really enjoyed the caving and thermal baths we visited during our trip! Also the hostel that was booked for us through WSA was great and our tour guide, Bogi, was amazing! I would definitely recommend this trip to everyone and am happy to say that I will be booking more trips with WSA in the future!
