My Travelogue-Prague

I bought Flixbus ticket for Frankfurt to Prague for about 40 Euros. I have to tell you, the view was absolutely breathtaking. From frozen lakes to high-end cars, it was simply mesmerizing.  img_9080

I reached the Praha-florenc bus station at 13:30. Since I was travelling on a budget, I walked a mile to the hotel, dragging my luggage (trolley bag) all along. The festive season was on, and the old town square was really crowded. The theatre was playing a ballet- Swan Lake.

The hotel I stayed at was- Church Pension Praha, a budget hotel, with good wi-fi connection and other basic necessities. The manager was really cool. He cracked jokes and made us feel at home.

The church and the old-town setting looked like a scene- straight from a Disney movie-too beautiful to be real.

There were Christmas markets which had barbecued meat, antique jewellery, candies, cakes, and majorly, hot wines.

Czech Republic is a part of the European Union, however, it’s currency is not Euro. Their currency is Czech Koruna. The exchange rate is: 1 Euro= 27 CZK. A few shops accept cards, but only if you make a purchase more than 300 CZK. My advice is to get some cash exchanged beforehand from the Praha-Florenc bus station. Also, beware of the exchange shops that say “Best Exchange Rate”, they lure tourists easily. Don’t fall into the trap.

My travelogue-How it started!

img_9110My brother Aman is an avid traveler. He has traveled to so many cities worldwide and is always on the move. So, he was the inspiration. With the support of my parents, my younger cousin (sister) and I went on this almost solo trip and had the time of our life.

Somehow, most of the things panned out the way we expected. Some cities surprised us, some taught us and some made us fall in love with them

Our flight was KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. We got an amazing deal on the flight ticket. We got Delhi-Frankfurt-Delhi(round trip) for $500. For flight bookings, I used ‘skyscanner.com’. I recommend you start looking for tickets 2-3 months prior to your trip.

We departed from Indra Gandhi International Airport, Delhi at 3 a.m. on 21st December. Woo-hoo! And we arrived in Amsterdam from where we had a connecting flight to Frankfurt. We had to take the bus to change the terminal, and boy was it cold! And it was raining! We arrived in Frankfurt at 11:30 a.m.(local time), 21st December. We were in a new country, all by ourselves but we were so excited. It was cold, so I started dancing to build up some heat in my body! 😀img_9028

How are you?

happiness-heart-sunsetHey fellas!! How have you been?

Hope your life is filled with happiness.

Isn’t it awesome, when you go to the supermarket, and someone asks you,”how have you been?”
It feels pretty amazing to know someone cares. 🙂

Life is awesome!! 🙂

Coding for dummies

 

Starting-A-2
Do you want to make something of your own? Everything you love was made with code.

Do you love the idea of coding, but don’t know where to start?  Fret not. Let’s begin our journey into the world of coding.

Disclaimer: This article will not teach you any coding concepts. However, if you are interested in learning how to write your first code, I am sure this will be helpful.

  1. Okay, this is the most obvious one. You should have a genuine interest to start coding.
  1. Pick a language. Most graduate schools introduce the students to the world of programming through C. However, if you keep your options open, Python is an even better language to start with.
  1. When you think you are ready, write down (on paper) what you want to code about and what do you expect your code to do?
  1. When you are done writing what you expect out of the code, the next step would be to write an algorithm, which is a set of ‘step by step’ operations that need to be performed. Remember: An algorithm can be written in any language (including English, Hindi, French, and yeah, German). This is the most significant step, so don’t skip it.
  1. When you are done writing an algorithm, write the code in your preferred language.
  1. The most important quality to possess as a coder is: perseverance. You should be persistent through whatever failures you may face. Just keep at it and you’ll be awesome.

YOU!

Spend some time with “you”. The time you spend with yourself is probably the happiest.

Sometimes, it’s important to catch up with yourself, so that you don’t lose yourself in the rat race.

Find out if something’s bothering you. Fix it.

Connect with yourself. Talk to yourself.

Pamper yourself. Cook food, for yourself.

Just do anything and everything that makes you happy.

Sometimes, it’s important that you subtract the people from your life, who do not add anything positive to it. Life is yours.

Make the most of it.

It’s precious. And remember, it will always get better.

Love Yourself!! Laugh Out Loud!!

XOXO

Saumya
