During my last day in Prague, I had very mixed emotions. I was very excited to go back home and see my family and friends, but I was also incredibly sad to leave the city I grew to love and the friends I met along the way. When I finally finished packing up my room, my roommates and I went to go check out the Prague Christmas markets. The markets were set up in Old Town Square and they were incredible. Every direction you looked you could see food and merchandise vendors and in the middle of all of these tents was a gigantic Christmas tree. There was also a stage to the side of the square that had children perform live Christmas music and traditional Czech dances. After leaving the Christmas markets, we met up with a bunch of friends for a final goodbye dinner. We had home-cooked chicken and pasta and played games all night. It was a tough goodbye, but we all knew that we would see each other again someday. As I hopped on my 10 am flight the next morning it all hit me. I truly realized that I was actually leaving this beautiful city and would not be returning for the foreseeable future. I was incredibly thankful that I had the amazing experience that I had, but I was very sad to see it come to an end.
