HOMELESS

Imagine. You are far away from home, miles and miles keep you apart. Sometimes you get very homesick. You miss your mum’s scent in the air, you miss the places that used to be your safe spots hidden from the rest of the world, you miss the people you were surrounded by, you miss the…

LOCH LOMOND|EXPLORING UK

I’m finally in Glasgow, Scotland. And given the close distance between The Trossachs National Park and my new home city, there’s possibly no better first trip than exploring the beautiful landscapes of this country. Last weekend, Veronika and I therefore visited the national park mentioned above and we saw the biggest lake of Scotland, Loch…

10 THINGS I LOVE ABOUT THE CZECH REPUBLIC (MY COUNTRY)

Since I’m moving to Britain in a week, I thought it’d be great to write down some things I love about my home country. The truth is, I’ve never felt as I’ve belonged here; and I’ve always dreamed about going away. I’ve never actually wanted to stay here, even as a child. But I believe…

MY TOP FRENCH SONGS|LEARN WITH ME

I remember that I’ve learnt a lot of French while listening to French songs and translating them so that I could know what they were about. And even nowadays I listen to them quite often, since I believe that it’s one of the most useful ways to learn a language – alongside with watching TV…

MY SOLO TRIP TO VIENNA

I admit it’s quite late to write about a trip I went on in November, but it would be a shame not to mention it. This was my second solo-trip (the first one was a small trip to Mariánské Lázně) and I must say it was great. I took a very early train in the…

MARIÁNSKÉ LÁZNĚ|EXPLORING CZECHIA

As some of you might now, I live in the Czech Republic. And to be honest, I’ve always tried to ignore this fact as I’ve hated this country with all my heart. I don’t particularly know why. Maybe it was the people, maybe our politics, maybe Czech literature or the fact that I would never…

VOLUNTEERING IN INDONESIA – BLUE LIFE

DOBROVOLNIČENÍ V INDONÉSII – BLUE LIFE This summer I participated in a Czech project Prales dětem (something like Rainforest for children) in Indonesia and it was made of two parts – Green Life (you can read an article about it HERE) and Blue Life. Blue Life focuses on oceans and so the main program is collecting garbage that…

ONLY WHEN WE’RE LOST

Written on 17th June 2017 “Only when we’re lost can we find ourselves again.” I bought a picture with this saying on it when I was lost. And now I’m sitting at the Dubai airport, heading to Indonesia, feeling like I’ve finally found myself. If I didn’t get lost, I would never try to find…
