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

I had a blast visiting Prague for the first time with WSA. To start, the hostel that WSA booked for the tour was incredible. The entire staff was very helpful, the rooms were nice, and there was a really cool bar downstairs with live music every night. Our tour guide was top notch as well. He was really fun and flexible with whatever our group wanted to do while making sure we saw all of the major sights, good places to eat, as well as the night life! I thought this trip was much easier to book through WSA rather than figure it all out myself and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get the most out of their trip!
