Best Beer Gardens in Prague

Hey strangers!

I just had my first feature guest post on the wonderful and wanderlusty travel blog Getting Stamped.

I wrote about my first love: Prague.

Prague planted the seed of travel for me. I had always wanted to travel but didn’t want to go somewhere that all other young college students were going. I wanted something different but not too foreign.

I was far from disappointed.

Like a first crush, I have never fallen in love with another place so hard and so fast. The avant-guard glass blowing, cobblestone streets, the tenebrous history and surrealist literature, the colors of the walls, and sausage + beer for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

But there was something else…

It was the most strange feeling to wander around a city that was older than the country I had come from. I felt my brain grow because it was the first time I recognized there were so many more people on this earth with equally complex and full lives that weren’t in the States. For a moment, all the mental dominos fell and I realized my tiny existence on an infinitesimal planet in a much larger universe. 

There were billions of people coexisting with me that I would never meet.

I was able to give these people faces and extend empathy towards them. They had lived different lives than I had, raised differently, and had a different mother tongue.

This was a feeling I would become addicted to- the feeling of tinyness.

This is a feeling that would ignite an ache for distant places so vast it would drive my life for nearly a decade.

Traveling understands me more than any friend can- it is my opportunity to feel connected to the larger web we are a part of.

and I wouldn’t have had that without Prague.

I miss it every day, like an unrequited romance, feeling like I will never have enough time with it.

When I was asked to write about Prague I was so excited to be able to write about the most iconic aspect of Prague: its beer gardens! I write out all of my favorite places to get lit under trees.

Czech out the post here!
