24 Hours in Prague: What To Do

24 Hours in Prague on Chasing-Emma.com

I realise that cities, by nature, are large and it can take you days to explore them, but there was just something about Prague that made its way into my heart and stayed there. I only had just over 24 hours to explore this city which is one of the down sides to being on a group tour, but I definitely made sure to make the most of it.

Budapest Bucket List in 48 Hours

Budapest in 48 Hours on Chasing Emma

Budapest: a city of gorgeous architecture, endless monuments and those thermal baths. It’s not an exaggeration to say that I left a piece of my heart in the city, and I am so incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to spend 48 glorious hours in the city exploring. While I think you could easily spend a full week in Budapest since there are so many hidden gems, we only had a limited amount of time so we had to make the most of it, and while there were a few things that we didn’t get to, I’m pretty happy with what I was able to achieve in such a short amount of time.

Earlier this year I was blessed with the opportunity to travel to Egypt for 2 weeks. While there I went hot air ballooning, and what started as a magical experience quickly turned deadly.
