Travel to Prague, or Floating On Praha

Today is my first morning in Prague, and I am watching the sun rise up from the big windows of the airport. A new day is rising, I am listening to music, I feel good.

My flight from Ireland arrived in Prague around 11 pm so, rather than wasting a night of travel expenses on a bed that I would just be sleeping in, I slept out the night on a bench at the “airport hotel.” But no sleep came to me, as I could not wait until the first rays of morning and get ever more excited about tramping in a new country. I am glad that I decided to keep going “north,” and rode out my first intention of coming to the east of Europe. I like traveling in new lands. I hit a momentary speed bump right before leaving the USA, as I got the intuitive urge to go to Japan. Now I love Japan, but I have not been to the Czech Republic before.

Erik the Pilot said, “Go to Prague and drink beer,” and this is what I did.

I think that I may make the airport my residence in this city, which is seeming like the most expensive place that I have ever been before.

But costs, fooey!

Expensive prices mean nothing if you don’t buy anything.

Who cares what the price tags say, if they are connected to something that you neither want nor need. In this way it is all just numbers written into the abyss, and it ain’t mean nothing to me. Traveling means that I can eat the wind and drink the seas. I have no worries.

The sun still rises.

And so do I.

Rising upon a new day of travel, and I feel alright.

Just traveling on to a new country, just floating on to Prague.

But I must wonder about all those gutter dying poets of old who wrote the words that gave me a notion of freewill and an idea of a life worth living?

The sun is still rising.

It is 4 AM and I am happy.

A sleepless night topped off with a smile.

Today is a day for tramping. This world is a world to love.

Floating on Praha. Traveling on to Eastern Europe.
