This trip leans towards being a culture-heavy, sightseeing trip. You will use the metro at times to get around, but part of the magic of Prague is meandering down the beautiful storybook-like cobblestone streets and spontaneously popping in to explore hidden cathedrals or cafes. Because of this, be prepared to walk a few miles each day. You also need to be able to participate in a long bike ride through the countryside which involves some small rolling hills so being comfortable on a bike is necessary.
Lastly, practice getting uncomfortable: try new foods, start conversations with people you don’t know, put away your phone for a few hours every day, etc. Traveling is exhilarating and life-changing, but it can also be full of moments that are new, hard, or uncomfortable. New people, new cultures, new languages, and new food can be a lot to take in at times. Everything you do to get ready now will make it that much easier. Just know that we’ll be there to walk you through all of it and help make your experience amazing!
