Ups and Downs of Being a Foreigner
Being a foreigner living in a different country can be both exciting and very scary, as living in a foreign country for an extended period of time is completely different than throwing on your back pack, stopping at the hot tourist spots, packing up and leaving a few days later.

The week before Christmas I went to the Foreign Police to collect my visa that was supposed to be ready by December 25. I didn't have much hope that it would be ready, but I thought I'd try because I had some free time.

Lost in Prague
We have all heard the common expat male theory: if you are lost in Prague, find a Czech girl between the ages of 19 and 25 and ask them for help. Chances are they speak English due to having worked abroad and may even go out for a coffee with you.

Arts and Acceptance
Soon I will have been living in Prague for 4 years, but the city hasn’t stopped surprising me yet, comparing how similar but different the people are from what I’m used to.

Job Hunting In Prague
Job hunting can be one of the most stressful, emotional and satisfying rollercoaster rides many people will experience at some point or another in their lives. I have come to live in Prague the capital of the Czech Republic and after three weeks of enjoying new cultural experiences, my wonderful new environment and long lunches I realize my job search must begin soon.

Life is great here. Great friends, great fun, great hobbies. Hobbies and sports are something that has entertained societies for centuries. But today I want to mention a hobby that is not so typical in most other parts of the world.

My answer is simple. Almost six years ago, I found a job opportunity through a friend and decided to move to Prague in order to experience life in Europe.

My dear friend
Here I am in Prague for 7 months already... You remember my hesitation last year about choosing the right place to go, and also my discouragement because of the erasmus paperwork. But this is far from now, and I do not regret my choice for one second. I'm starting to feel like home, (it is about time), and I often amuse myself thinking about the clichés we had about this country.

The Spring of Prague
I met my girlfriend in Lima, Peru, when I was attending to a presentation about exchange opportunities abroad in my college. I still remember it as it was yesterday.
