I was on my very first trip to Europe, and as my airplane soared towards Czech Republic, an overwhelming emotion engulfed me. I had just been served a glass of wine, and while Frances Mayes found a cute house for herself in Under the Tuscan Sun, I looked out the window. I had expected to see only clouds, but I was pleasantly surprised to clearly see a million ships dotting the Black Sea! The awareness that I was travelling to Europe suddenly heightened. All this while, I knew that I was heading to Prague, but it was the first time that this realisation fully hit me; I was giddy with excitement and couldn’t help but eagerly look forward to exploring the country. For the next seven days, I was going to explore the Czech Republic and the quaint towns that tourists barely know about.
