As we’ve written several times here at the site in the past, last year Rose teamed up with Emirates Airline for a promotional campaign titled “Roam the World with Rose“. She traveled to several European cities, including the beautiful Czech capital Prague. She has written a piece for the NZ Herald about her time in the popular city, which you can now read below! For more information about the campaign check out our page here, or our news archive here.

A guided tour and a ballet performance were perfect for an unplanned visit, writes Rose McIver.

I knew painfully little about Prague before my arrival in the city. So I decided to take that “when in Rome” adage and run with it in the Czech Republic’s capital. To get to know the city, its history and culture, I signed up for two events. The first was a guided walking tour through Prague Castle, hoping it wasn’t going to be too academic or dull. Fortunately, Martina, the guide was a personable local with a gift for storytelling and, because of this, I found the information much easier to absorb. I wished I’d been on more tours of this nature in my travels and highly recommend it, although it’s worth noting there are both good and bad versions, so reading reviews online beforehand will save you from a dreary tour.

One thing you can’t be saved from though, is the weather. We had a great deal of rain while we walked, so everyone in our small group bought souvenir store umbrellas, which flipped inside-out at the first gust of wind. Looking at the rubbish bins stuffed with dodgy umbrellas I was reminded immediately of Wellington, and Cuba St’s own Brolly Graveyard bins. Still, the inclement Prague weather helped set the scene for a moody, medieval history lesson and was actually very refreshing after a morning of hot sun.

Although I was expecting one enormous building; the castle is in fact a collection of buildings. Chapels, cathedrals, banquet halls and guard’s quarters were among the huge collection of structures that made up the castle. Martina told us a couple of tragic tales about the martyrs and saints recognised in Prague, but I will spare you the gruesome details. The architecture of the castle represents almost every era of the last millennium, having been built over a very long period of time. It includes Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque styles.

The second thing I did was go to a ballet, because I knew it would be a good opportunity to be entertained without having to deal with the language barrier. It was a wonderful reminder of the power of the body to communicate when words can’t. I danced as a child, and whenever I see dancers perform, I immediately light up and feel like a little girl again, wowed by the grace, discipline and sensitivity to music.

This production was a selection of dances from Swan Lake, and it was a nice, packed theatre. The principal dancers were extraordinary, both as athletes and artists. And while the language barrier didn’t dissipate, learning how to say “hello”, “please” and “thank you” in Czech did make the journey immeasurably more pleasant.

Locals appreciate it, even if you run into a dead-end as soon as someone takes the conversation further. Thank goodness for phone apps, such as Duolingo. I’ve been fortunate to try out my newly learned Czech phrases and have the opportunity to explore Europe and highly recommend finding the time in your busy lives to make the easy journey and investigate it for yourselves.

As New Zealanders, I feel like we have an eagerness to celebrate different cultures, art, history and the way the world influences us. Travel helps us to develop empathy and understanding of others, and it provides education and incredible memories to bring home and share. | NZherald

As you all know, Rose is an ambassador for Emirates (you can read all about her work for them at our page here). NZ Herald have done a cute little interview with her about her holiday experiences, which you can read below!

NZ Herald | Rose McIver is an ambassador for Emirates.

What was your greatest holiday?
Piha. Pretty much every summer growing up — often staying at the Peach family bach. So many wonderful memories.

And the worst? Well it was still a brilliant holiday, but my poor mum broke her shoulder visiting me in Canada last Christmas. That was a little rough.

If we bump into you on holiday, what are you most likely to be doing? Slip, slop, slapping. Eating a Nice Block. Having a swim in the surf, but only ever waist deep — watching out for those rips.

If we could teleport you to one place in New Zealand for a week-long holiday, where would it be? God, we are spoilt for choice back home but today I’ll say Hahei.

How about for a dream holiday internationally? I’m very keen to see Morocco. I love the food and the design I’ve seen from there, and would love to meet the people behind them.

What’s the dumbest thing you’ve ever done when travelling? I left my passport in the toilets in Dubai when I was 18. I was on the way to Europe. An incredible woman who was cleaning the bathroom saved the day and raced it to the gate just in time for me to board (not in time to prevent my first-time-solo-traveller panic attack).

Aisle seat or window seat? Window. More leaning options.

Complete this sentence: I can’t travel without … Mosquito repellent and sunscreen. I am a heavy doser and really dread the imminent studies coming out showing what all the chemicals do to us.

Hello Rose fans – missed us!? With Rose being busy filming season 4 of iZombie, and our offline lives taking a toll, we’ve been on a semi-hiatus in August. But never fear, we’re still around, and updates will resume! Rose hasn’t been up to much while we were away (seeing as she’s busy filming, there probably won’t be a whole lot of new events and media at the moment), but there are a couple of new things going on in her life. Read on for a catch-up on what we’ve missed!

As many of you will know from our tweets, Rose traveled to many different European countries this summer. It turns out that it was both business and pleasure, and not just a vacation! She has teamed up with Emirates Airline for a partnership they’ve titled “Roam The World with Rose”, where she’ll weekly share new places in Europe which she has visited with Emirates. She’ll post a photo at a certain destination, then her followers can guess where she is; the following week she’ll reveal where she was, before posting another place! So far she has posted Paris and Prague – and by the looks of her latest photo and hint, Rome. I’ve put together a page with all the information so far, and I’ll continue to update it every week! You can visit it here. Photos are up in our gallery!
