It has almost been five years now since I set foot in the Czech Republic. Originally from the Philippines, I first came to the United States in search for “greener pastures.” Living there for several years, I thought it was going to be home for me. But little did I know that the stars had a different plan for me. I met and fell in love with a Czech Man.
Like all great love stories, ours involved marriage and children. After several years of living in the States and weighing the advantages and disadvantages of raising a family there, we decided to settle in the Czech Republic, my husband’s home country.
Since I have never lived in Europe before, I am blogging about our experiences here. This will basically be a journal of my adventures as I try to fit into my new home – from learning the language, discovering cultural eccentricities and raising a family in a multi-cultural household. In this blog, I hope to give you a glimpse about life in the Czech Republic through a transplant’s eyes. I also intend to share with you personal experiences about the many beautiful places in Czech that are not normally found in tourist books.
So come with me as we journey through the Czech Republic together!
