Prague Playdates Meetup and more

You have a little one who joined your family or joining soon and you don’t know how to find other parents like you, then online communities can come to your rescue. If you are an expat (or an English-speaking) parent in Prague, you can join the following groups I will mention in this post.

Prague Playdates Meetup

I became a mother in June 2019. When I was pregnant I found myself thinking if I can find other parents (or parents-to-be) who I can socialize with as an expat and our babies can play with each other. There were some groups for older babies…

I have been working remotely for almost 3 years now (2 years of it mostly in Tallinn) and I learned by experience how important is to find places suitable for work.

Keeping this in mind, whenever I find a good place that fits my simple work-friendly criteria, I make sure that I wrote a tip (mostly on Foursquare) for other digital nomads and share what I liked or disliked about the place.

Surely, everyone has different expectations regarding the places they found suitable for…

My first trip to Prague was in 2015, and I have been living in Prague almost for a year now. Considering the touristic season is already here (it was more than 20 degrees whole week!), I thought I should better create a post answering questions that I get from friends about visiting Prague and share the places I visited for the last 3 years with you all.
