I’m a bit late with this one, but I didn’t want to lose the opportunity to have this post here with the most significant moments of my first year living in Prague. I arrived in Prague on the 8 of July 2019, and it has been an intense year, to say the least. I never enjoyed my life so much as I did in this year. I have the feeling I came to the right place at the right time, in the best version of myself. Actually, I’m sure about that.
The first big moment for me was when one of my best friends from Brazil came to visit me. It was amazing to have her here with me and I know this will happen again many times, as we always find a way to be together no matter the circumstances.
One thing that I didn’t expect was to find beautiful nature around the city of Prague. Even if very different from what I was used to being in Brazil or Canada, we have adorable places where we went hiking here in the Czech Republic. And even better, always with a good beer waiting for us at the end 😀
A memory that I will always have about my first year in Prague is how crazy it was lol. Crazy nights, arriving home at 6 am and going to work at 9 am (with the same people that were with me until 6), going to empty stadium in the middle of the night, jumping gates, finishing the nights in weird places, and much more. I have soooo many good pictures of those moments, but they won’t be posted here. I’ll leave one taken at the beginning of one these epic nights 😀
Also wanted to mention our last crazy night out before Corona that is probably the last crazy night like this we will have in a long time.
The first night Danilo slept in the apartment as we were officially living together <3 The truth is that he was living there long before we made it official, but that first night was special and we had 2 bottles of prosecco to celebrate <3
Our first Christmas here in the Czech Republic and also the first one together was very special. And when I say we, I mean as Me and Danilo as well as Me and Babuxa. We always dreamt of living close to each other and being able to spend both ordinary days together, but also these special occasions.
My 30 years celebration was amazing and a day I’ll never forget! Not sure if everyone knows, but I am crazy about Harry Potter and there is this restaurant here in Prague with a winter garden they rent for parties and from day one I wanted to have my birthday party there as it was sooooo “Harry Potter”, if this can be a thing. I did the decoration, baked my own harry Potter cake that was SO FUN to do, had my best friends with me, ate amazing food and drank prosecco the whole day. I honestly can’t think of anything that would have made my day any better. In other words: it was perfect!!!
Looking forward to the next years 😀
