PA in Europe
I did something a bit crazy this weekend and now writing this blog I am absolutely exhausted and in complete recovery mode but at the same time I wouldn’t change my weekend for the world. So what did I do? Well as many of you know I turned 30 this year and as many of you also know I love travelling and seeing other countries so I decided to combine these two parts of my life by completing the challenge of having been to 30 countries in 30 years… This weekend I finished that task by visiting 3 countries in 3 days! Hungary, Czech Republic and Poland.
To visit these countries over a weekend meant a few long train journeys (including an overnight train) and lots of running around to try and see everything in the limited amount of time I was there. Considering I didn’t even change time zones I have developed a deep respect for the managers I’ve had over the years that have darted all over the world in a matter of days – no wonder they need an assistant!
Anyway, my trip was a lot to pack in but I thoroughly enjoyed myself and here are a few recommendations of things to do and see if you ever decide to visit Central Eastern Europe
1. Mátyás Church
2. Parlamentnek (Parliament building)
3. Zsinagóga (Great Synagogue)
4. Szabadság Hid (Liberty Bridge)
5. The beautiful Danube
Prague: Czech Republic
1. St Vitus’s Cathedral
2. Charles Bridge
3. Old Town Hall
4. Food and drink
While I was in Krakow I visited the Auschwitz and Birkenau Museum which represents the most horrific elements of the Holocaust. I recommend everyone visits the site once in their lives so that we never forget the horrors brought to so many innocent people.
