Nothing wrong with Java, it was my second language. I'd prefer to have a solid grasp of Python though. I'm required to use either C/C++ or Java most of the time (School) so I don't get to play with Python. My free time is spend on non-learning ;)
Any reason you want to change from Java to Python? As above, I can think of many!
Have you heard of https://projecteuler.net/ ? It's a great place to get ideas for practice. Keep in mind, a LOT of the questions are maths based. That being said, it will help you get used to things. You might impose your own requirements to make it harder, such as making it in a GUI, instead of all command line.

Really, it depends what you want to do for fun.
Do you enjoy programming? Yes, Python is a pretty simple language, but it is definitely powerful.

I'd recommend finding a decent book on Python programming, or, an online tutorial that you can follow.
What are you past programming experiences?
