Life in Prague during 2nd Lockdown

A few months ago, I would have never thought that I’d be moving to a new country, in the middle of a pandemic, and more exactly, to a country where miss Rona had no mercy after September 2020. It was a scary feeling but I trusted my gut and went for it.

Thankfully, I moved right before things started to get worse and I managed to secure rent in a beautiful house situated in the 8th district of Prague, on a hilly place, a bit far from the overcrowded city center. I feel great here and it feels amazing to have a back yard during a pandemic, to be able to go outside daily and to freshen up your thoughts. Sadly I didn’t have the same luxury in Vienna, but I’m thankful I managed to pull things through this time.

My beautiful house is situated on top of a hill (I like to call it a mountain, given the effort that I have to put in every time I come from the supermarket, carrying lots of shopping bags and wondering why the hell I had to move on a hill). There’s a lot of nature around, wild animals and a quietness that I didn’t experience since living at my grandmother’s house, in the north of Romania. My favorite thing to do here is walking around and exploring the breathtaking views that this ‘mountain’ has to offer. My favorite view is a hidden place where you can see the entire city, especially during the night when all lights are on.

It’s been almost 2 months since I moved to Prague, yet it feels like I’ve been living here for many years. Probably my biggest weakness is that I fall in love with places way too quickly, but as for now, I still miss Vienna and I can’t stop thinking about all the beautiful memories that I’ve made there during the past year.

I’m looking forward to write more about Prague and life here, but let’s see what 2021 brings along, hopefully better news that what we’re getting lately.

Growing up in a small city, I never thought I would get the chance to travel the world, yet dreams can always come true. You just need to be dedicated, passionate, and always eager to try new things and never step away from being yourself.
