Planning free time!

Over this past week, our group has been researching more about Prague. We were assigned to see what the price differences are of certain products in the Czech Republic compared to the United States.

The following items are more expensive in the Czech Republic:

  • Gym memberships
  • Electronics
  • Brand name clothes

The following items are cheaper in the Czech Republic:
  • A loaf of bread
  • Beer
  • Cigarettes
  • Restaurant food
  • Movie tickets
  • Gas

Knowing price information really helps us to be able to prepare for our free time and know what kinds of products are worth our investment over there! Went on to look up activities for when we have some time to ourselves and restaurants to eat at. Sight seeing at Petrin Hill, the Unicular Railway, Wenceslas Square, Divoka Sarka Park, and the Astronomical clock are all low cost options that people have shown interest in. A "Taste of Prague" tour is a more expensive option that we could buy for a package of wine tasting, meal sampling, souvenir shopping, and other travel tips for the city of Prague in order to get the full cultural experience. The TRAP or Mind Maze games seemed to get our attention too. They are real life escape games where you are put into teams of five people and you have to solve puzzles and clues to escape. It sounds like we might make reservations at one of the locations in Prague for our whole group since it would be a fun thing for everyone to do together! The biggest water park in Central Europe is in Prague as well as a bobsleigh track that would be cool to experience. It would be really neat if we could try things that we aren't able to do here in the United States. Finding out about all these opportunities is really making me excited to leave exactly two weeks from today! I'm hoping we can fit everything we want to do into the short amount of free time we have. We'll be sure to keep you all updated on the places we do choose to go!
