home tomorrow

I'm really in shock. How is it possible that I'll be back home tomorrow? That I have a flight to catch in 10 hours????? Tonight, I emailed my last final paper, had my last dinner at Zanzibar with friends, drank my last Czech beer, said goodbye to my friends from other schools...

I remember when living here felt so hard and even this charming little city couldn't rid me of my homesickness. And yes, I'm excited to see my family, my own comfy bed, the rest of my wardrobe... but I just can't imagine how my life would have turned out without Prague, without being in the city where I've learned to love new people, new cultural experiences, and even the many indescribable little ways that I've changed.

In a few days, I'm going to make an extensive list of my favorite Prague memories, in addition to my recommendations on Prague to-do's. I think once it sinks in that I'm actually back in the States (i.e. maybe in two weeks!), I'll be able to calmly write about this experience like a mature adult, rather than the emotional-and-procrastinating-on-packing girl that I am at the moment.


  1. what?! i thought you weren't going home til sunday??
    the copenhagen airport is going to be an absolute mess with everyone leaving for the climate conference...i wish i was leaving earlier! plus the whole british airways strike and the threat of even more snow, ahhhh

  2. Nope, Delta to JFK and then to Philly tomorrow morning at 9:30!!! I am nervous. Long flights always freak me out. ahhhhhhh!

  3. I can't wait to read your Prague to do's. I'm looking for inspiration for this fall!
