EASTER

We really like Easter! We undersand Easter is the most important time of the Christian year when Christians remember the Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. For us Easter means the end of winter and beginning of spring. We adhere to some traditional customs and enjoy the time with family.  Easter means colorful, positive and happy time... no matter it is raining like today.

ST. MATTHEW´S FAIR

When you say St. Matthew's Fair, some love it, some hate it. When I was a kid, Grandma and Grandpa took me there every year. And I loved it! I could not nap every time, as I was looking forward to get on the bus, which took us from grandparents apartment to the final stop Holešovice Station. I did not want to get on the tram because it had to wait in traffic and walking was much faster! We joind the crowds streaming from subway station and I was full of awaiting what attractions there are, which I am going to choose, if grandparents allow me to buy a balloon and a rainbow marshmallow. A brightly colored balloon! I saw the same excitement in the eyes of the other children, we underestood each other. But I did not understand why my grandparents did not share the excitement with me and  they seemed  to walk very slow every year.

WINGS FOR LIFE WORLD RUN

Only three months left! I am going to be part of the charity Wings for Life World Run in May 7, 2017, organized by Red Bull and going to run for those who can´t! Well, it´s time to focus more on training to accomplish my goal from last year. Do you know that you could be part of this movement, even if you won´t be able to go to Bratislava, or anywhere else?

WINTER IN PRAGUE

I can´t remember when the snow stayed in Prague for more than a week. Me and Ella had no plans for today. I wanted to go on a trip somewhere, but finally we agreed to stay home. We took a sledge and went into the woods. We climbed to our favorite rock and went down on Michal´s bike trails thru the woods to Rokytka river and the pond. There were some kids sledging the hill there, but we disappeared into the woods and enjoyed the privacy there. More days like this!

CHRISTMAS

Advent is over, tomorrow is Christmas Eve! We enjoyed the Advent time a lot. Surprisingly, Ella was not sick this year, so instead of only baking and decorating, we enjoyed the Christmas atmosphere outside. We visited exhibitions of nativity scenes, the museum in Prerov nad Labem, we donated some food to dog and cat shelters during the event at the castle in Brandys nad Labem and for the first time, Ella joined us to walk around the Prague Downtown in the evening and she was excited. Regarding the Christmas traditions and preparations for Christmas, we were just doing what makes us happy. Yes, we baked some Christmas sweets, but just to smell it around. Yes, we decorated a gingerbread, but just to please ourselves and friends. Yes, we even made small Christmas decorations, but just because it makes us happy to light them when it is getting dark. Yes, we sent a few postcards, because it is nice. Our Christmas gallery follows.

AUTUMN

The fall! I felt always so depressed when this season had begun. My calendar showed the first fall day and I saw only a cold weather, rain, mud, short days and ignored, how pretty can the fall be. I´ve slowly started to like it and have changed my mind. Instead of just surviving the fall season, I'm trying to enjoy it.

LASOUL

Is it December already? No way. It was summer yesterday and fall was in my dreams only! No, I was not dreaming, lasoul.cz is online! I am able to browse through our travel diary and remember the places we have visited. And because shared joy doubles the fun, we have decided to share our trips public.
