    schema:description ""This is the story of Rachael's year in Prague. Armed only with a romantic soul and a pressing need to get away from her overbearing family, Rachael heads off in search of adventure and love, on a quest to explore her Bohemian roots. With vague plans to spend her year getting intimate with some fabulous Czech men, writing the next great Australian novel and possibly meeting the love of her life in a smoky Czech jazz bar (despite not actually liking modern jazz and never having written a novel before in her life), Rachael is not really prepared for the realities that confront her in her new home, involving as they do perplexing plumbing, difficulties with the near-incomprehensible Czech language, extraordinarily rude check-out chicks, and inadequately stocked supermarkets. It's no picnic, this expatriate life, and certainly not what she envisaged, but, rather to her surprise, Rachael finds herself gradually creating in Prague a kind of second home, complete with a charmingly eccentric tribe of extended family and friends. A warm, funny and surprising story of how our family ends up always with us, no matter how far away we may go, Me, Myself & Prague is a sweet and surprising memoir of hope, courage, friendship - and the importance of getting a smile from a check-out chick just when you really need it."
