Prague and Budapest Trip

I have always been wanting to visit Prague.

Ho sempre voluto visitare Praga.

So, a few weeks ago me and other two friends of mine decided to take a four-day trip to Prague AND Budapest. A very risky decision, maybe too risky for our bodies (and spirits) to get out of it in one piece. The plan was pretty unwise, though accurately organised.

Così qualche settimana fa io e altre mie due amiche, l’abbiamo fatta grossa, forse troppo grossa perché i nostri corpi (e i nostri spiriti) potessero sopravviverne illesi (ahah!): abbiamo deciso di organizzare una vacanza di soli quattro giorni a Praga E Budapest. Il piano era piuttosto avventato, ma ben organizzato.

I am still very impressed with how many things we were able to visit in so little time, despite any expectation. We came back exausted, but very satisfied.

Sono rimasta molto colpita di quante cose siamo state in grado di visitare in così poco tempo, a dispetto di ogni aspettativa. Siamo tornate a casa distrutte, ma molto soddisfatte.
