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…

ACROSS SLOVAKIA IN 5 DAYS FOR 60€ (part 3)

This is the continue of PART TWO. PART THREE THE THIRD DAY – THE SLOVAK PARADISE We woke up in our tent after a long and not very comfortable night (I was cold, then hot, cold, hot… really, couldn’t you just make up your mind, body?!) and got ready for our big trip to the…

ONE DAY IN DUBAI (UAE)

JEDEN DEN V DUBAJI (UAE) My friend and I participated in a Czech project in Indonesia and on our way there, we had the chance to explore Dubai in one day because of the long gap between our flights. When I first walked through the door in order to get out of our plane, an…

MY FIRST TIME IN PARIS

This article contains no photos because of technical problems. POPRVÉ V PAŘÍŽI The loud horning of cars at eleven P.M., people rushing across the streets, the elegance of tall Parisian ladies and the craziness of eccentric French people all at once. That is what Paris looked like to my 15-year old me (is it 4…

STEP OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE

VYSTUP ZE SVÉ KOMFORTNÍ ZÓNY This is the sentence I have been hearing a lot recently. “Step out of your comfort zone.” It’s because I’m quite obsessed with Ted Talks and travelling and almost every single traveller knows that this is a very important factor if we want to explore the world. People tend to…

GENEVA (SWITZERLAND)

Geneva is the capital of the French speaking part of Switzerland and I spent one afternoon in there on our way back from France. Because people speak French in there, I could  still understand what they were saying (although their accent is quite different and so even our teacher of French had some troubles understanding…

NANTES (FRANCE)

The last visit during our Erasmus project in France that I would like to write about is a city called Nantes. Nantes is the capital city of Pays de la Loire. I don’t have many photos (damn you, Denisa) so this is going to be quite short. First of all, we visited a memorial of…

LES SABLES D’OLONNE (FRANCE)

While working on our school Erasmus + project in La Roche sur Yon, I visited another two towns, Les Sables d’Olonne and Nantes. This post is going to be about the first one. Les Sables d’Olonne is a small seaside town just about twenty minutes from La Roche sur Yon. We can find it in…

NOIRMOUTIER (FRANCE)

Our school has been a participant in an Erasmus + project for the last two years. The project is made of three countries – the Czechs (us), the French and the Germans. Last year we went to Wildeshausen in Germany and then Germans and French came to our home town. A week ago, we had…

EDINBURGH (UK, SCOTLAND)

While I was in Glasgow visiting my friend Veronika, we decided to go on a trip to Edinburgh with another friend of ours. I had been to Edinburgh when I was 14 with my school but I hadn’t had a chance to really look around the city and see whatever I had liked, so this…
