I know I’ve been awful at updating this, but I suppose the actual podcast has been doing that for me. So what I’ll do here now is talk about the great trip I took this weekend to the Moravia region in the south of the country.
Well here it is, the first real post from over here. I think I’ll do a more detailed post this weekend but for right now I think I’ll just do a picture post. So here a few of them are with a bit of my commentary.
I honestly had no intention of updating this soon, but I’ve run out of things to do. It’s currently 2:34 p.m. in London and I’ve been here since roughly 10:30 a.m. My flight to Prague was supposed to board at 2:30, but has been pushed back to 3:25. Now whether that means I board at that time or take off at that time I’m not sure, as I haven’t completely figured out Heathrow’s Departures screen yet.
What I do know is I’m really tired, but I did just get a pretty good latte, so that should be alleviated soon. Anyway I haven’t really taken any pictures yet or anything because if you’ve seen one airport you’ve seen them all, although this one is huge. That being said, I’ll probably delete this later tonight when i actually have some updates, but who knows. I just want to get out of this airport.

So this whole thing starts out at the Pittsburgh International airport, where I get on my flight at 4:55 p.m. EST and head east to O’Hare International in Chicago.
I then have a roughly two and a half hour layover in Chicago, before getting back on a plane at 8:10 p.m. CST at O’Hare and cross the Atlantic towards Heathrow International in London.
After crossing six times zones, it will be 9:45 a.m. BST (which is 4:45 a.m. EST), which could be completely awful with full potential to throw me off, but I then have a little over five hours of layover time in London, so I can try to sleep there. Then, after those five hours, at 3:00 p.m. BST, I’ll get on my final plane to Prague Ruzyně Airport in Prague.
Approx. 645 miles, 2:00 flight time
And that’s it. I’ll land in Prague at 6:00 p.m. CEST and meet up with the group and find my apartment. Ruzyně is apparently only six miles away from downtown Prague so it shouldn’t be very long. But for those keeping score at home, it will be noon on August 28 on the East Coast when I land in Prague, making my total travel time 19 hours, but with enough breaks to keep it very manageable.
I doubt anyone made it this far, but in case you did, thanks, and I’ll have pictures up as soon as I take some.
