Eeek... 3 Weeks!!!

Can you believe June has come and gone and it's already mid-July?!?! Seems like summer is just whooshing by. Adam and I are doing great but realizing that the hockey season is just around the corner...
Every year, around this time, I tell myself that we still have a few months before training camp starts. But this year, Adam is suppose to report to Czech Republic in AUGUST! Holy smokes, that means we need to leave in about 3 weeks! I'm looking forward to it but I'm also very nervous. I've never been to Europe and our travel there isn't a visit... it's for a whole hockey season! *Breath*

I'm grateful for this blog which will allow me to tell you what we will be doing, how the hockey season is going and how we enjoy living 45 minutes from Prague. Luckily, Adam lived there last season so he will know the ins and outs of the city.

This week, I need to proactively think about what we need to bring and the loose ends we need to take care of here in Florida. Shadow will join us in this new adventure! Yay! My top thing to-do this week for her is get an apt for a 15 digit microchip. Her 9 digit one doesn't cut it for Europe. Dang!

Oh! Something else that I want to do is read more about a "slingbox". It's some sort of device that remotely provides you a feed from our home cable. Adam said there is only one english station in Czech which is MTV. I can only watch so much of "The Jersey Shore". HA!

Hmm... If you were me, what else would you want to do, take care of or bring??

Wow - you're going to Prague?! That's so cool! My husband visited there and got the most beautiful crystal goblets for me - you'll have to look for some :-)

Probably for me, moving to another country, the biggest things that I appreciated having was my Kindle. Great for the plane and great for overseas book downloads (although I don't know if Prague is in their network!)

you can get a cable TV. we used to have it at home, it has plenty of english tv channels :)

i hope you will enjoy your stay in our beautiful town. there is so many things to do here. Prague is an hour aways so its always fun to go there and just walk around a little bit. im so glad Adam is coming back for this season, the fans love him here!

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog, I do love my shoes! :)

As for what to bring, I have never been to prague but definitely a camera! :) Any creature comforts that you can't live without?

How exciting! I think you'll have a great time so just enjoy! I don't have many tips for you because I haven't been in your situation, but I have a hard time packing for a 3 day trip so I'm sure it's stressful going that for that long!

Buy a Kindle and upload LOTS of books!
That's so exciting that you'll be in Europe in less than a month. I'd go and sightsee as much as possible!

Yup! I'm heading to Czech with the hubs for the hockey season.

Tracey, Shadow doesn't need a pet passport for Czech. She needs a 15 digit microchip, a EU certificate, a USDA health certificate and an approved travel crate.

April, I will for sure have Abby comin' with me :)

"Love Jenny" We will bring the camera and take lots and lots of pictures!!

"The Conway's" I have plenty of books.. Would love a kindle in the near future!
