Life as a Solo Trip

In late November I left New York and went on my first solo trip ever. Mexico, Guatemala, Colombia. Honestly, I wasn’t too worried about traveling on my own. But I would have felt much more prepared had I known…

Dublin: A Pocket Guide for the Clueless and Unprepared

It’s been exactly one month now since me and Marie went on a three day trip to Dublin. We left Berlin and its moral hangover after the 1st of May festivities and flied to what felt like an entirely different climate zone.
Let me give you a heads-up: Dublin’s rainy. 
It just so happened that both and Marie had been running around like headless chicken the weeks following up to the trip. Therefore, we had exactly 0 idea about where we were going, what we wanted to see & what would be accurate to expect. I personally had a vague idea of a pretty city with cobblestone streets, flowers and and somehow, sheep (I do realize how that sounds, yes). I don’t know what Marie visualized but she seemed just as messy as me when we finally set foot in the capital of Ireland.

Follow Me Around Berlin: Winter Edition

It’s been nearly two weeks since I visited Berlin after – what felt like – ages. I drank a lot of coffee and had a lot of fun with people who have a special place in my heart. It was short and sweet and also very emotional, as so many changes happened since last summer when I moved out. I walked the streets with eyes wide open and my heartbeat going full-speed.
Happiness level: freshly adopted puppy.

How Paris Inspired Me

Snímek obrazovky 2019-07-18 v 20.30.25

I never really got the Paris hype. La vie en rose & moulin rouge & instaworthy Eiffel tower sunsets… nothing for me. Needless to say, I was pretty disappointed when I visited the city for the first time.  I was 16 back then, had a really bad cold and was way too sarcastic to appreciate the Parisian vibes.

Last weekend (aka 3 years later), I gave Paris another shot. It was a very anti-Berlin, short weekend getaway/art marathon/ croissant feast that inspired me on several different levels. Here are some brief, honest impressions!

Co vám nikdo neřekne když se stěhujete do zahraničí

Snímek obrazovky 2019-07-18 v 20.24.21

Už je to víc než dva a půl roku, co jsem se přestěhovala do Berlína.
Měla jsem tenkrát velký očekávání a velký obavy, a obojí se mi podařilo předčít. Když jsem se pak teďka v srpnu přesouvala do Švédska na Erasmus, neměla jsem pro změnu ani očekávání, ani nějak zvláštní zájem o to, co se bude dít. Bylo to už poněkolikátý, co jsem se měla stěhovat, a nějak extra jsem to neprožívala. Prostě jsem si naházela věci do dvou kufrů – a přestěhovala jsem se znova.

Složit hlavu v oblacích

Snímek obrazovky 2019-07-18 v 20.20.31

Poslední dva roky mě udržovaly konstantně na cestě. V každý z ložnic, kde jsem přespávala, číhal v rohu černý kufr a odpočítával hodiny do dalšího odjezdu. Dobíhání vlaků a autobusů, noční večeření suchý quinoi z krabičky, madlo kufru slepený izolepou.
Věčně na cestě a přitom jsem se nikdy nepohnula z místa.
