WHAT IS BEAUTY?

During my short life I’ve heard many people making comments about appearances of others. ‘How could he want her, she’s not even pretty’, or ‘Have you noticed she’s lost weight? She’s so much prettier now!’ or ‘This guy is really ugly, I doubt he’ll ever find someone’. Such things. And I would be very happy…

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…

THE STRUGGLE OF BEING VEGAN

What is the most difficult thing about living on a fully plant based diet? Sometimes there’s not much you can buy in a supermarket. Sometimes it’s awkward to ask the waitress in a restaurant if they have something that’s not from an animal (in Czechia the answer is very often NO). Sometimes you have to…

AUGUST|CZECH DIARIES

OKJA – THE FILM THAT MIGHT CHANGE YOU

OKJA – FILM, KTERÝ VÁS MŮŽE ZMĚNIT To be completely honest, I didn’t plan to name this post like that in the first place. While watching the film, I really wanted to name it: OKJA – THE FILM THAT MADE ME SICK. But then it ended. And I changed my mind. I disliked so many…

THE BEAUTY OF PRIDE|BRIGHTON 2016 & PRAGUE 2017

PRIDE A JEHO KRÁSA|BRIGHTON 2016 & PRAHA 2017 I love Pride. Many people in the Czech Republic are so furious and hateful when it comes to this celebration and it makes me a bit sad that they feel this way. They see Pride as the weird party with gays in leather costumes and they just…
