This past weekend has been pretty eventful. We said goodbye to Connecticut, and stopped in at the mall on the way to Maine to stock up on some things while in the Czech Republic.
When abroad, I can usually get whatever I need, but I like to stock up on things I'm not sure about, or my absolute favorite products. This time I left Sephora with the caudalie favorites set (I really just wanted the elixir for the flight, and was interested in trying the other products as well because I love the brand), and the Dry Bar VIP pack (dry shampoo, mousse and hairspray). Side note: how have I lived this long without trying dry shampoo?! I also came home with Bobbi Brown foundation, and a bunch of samples including this Bumble and Bumble shampoo and conditioner which smells so ridiculously good that now I feel like I need the full size bottles in my life. That's how they get you! Haha, but in all seriousness, I do love Sephora for the fact that they'll give you samples of whatever you want. I always take samples for short trips because I like to travel with just a carry on and I love that I can just throw them in a bag without worrying about going over the liquid limit. I have a bunch of weekend trips coming up for yoga (details soon!) so I wanted to have a bunch on hand.
The flight from Boston was nice. I had been extremely stressed out all day, but, as is normally the case, there was nothing to worry about and everything went smoothly. We arrived in Frankfurt and grabbed breakfast during our three hour layover. The jet lag was starting to hit me so by the time we boarded to go to Prague I felt like a zombie.
Buckles and all our junk arrived safely in Prague, and we headed off to our little town about an hour outside the city .
We'll be staying in a hotel for the next few days until we pick an apartment and get things set up there. Hotel living is generally pretty great - ac, tv, high speed internet, housekeepers...I mean, what could be better? I was pleasantly surprised by the size of our hotel room because in Europe the rooms are known for being really small and the one we're in feels just like back home.
We took a walk around town on Sunday with the pup. Czech is super intimidating for me to even try to sound out - I think I'll have to look into taking a language class or something. Oh! And we walked by a grocery store and were surprised to see it was open! On a Sunday! That's basically unheard of in Germany, where we spent the majority of the last three years, so we are pretty excited about that.
Hope you all had a great weekend!
