Take 20: Trip to IKEA

I love IKEA. It’s like a fairground for adults. I love wandering around the spaces they create. Especially the tiny ones. It’s like walking through one of their magazines. I’m always amazed by how much they can get in there. They can turn 25m² into a family paradise. I could […]

Take 19: Languages and Personality

People are always asking me how I’m doing with my Czech. Well, I suppose it’s normal. I’ve lived in the Czech Republic now for 7 years! So I should be nearly fluent by now, right? Well, I’m not. I know what you’re thinking. Uf, the Brits never learn ANY other […]

Take 18: Art Gallery

I love my free time! I guess we all do. But if you asked me: what do you like to do in your free time?… I wouldn’t know what to say. It’s not that I don’t do anything when I’m not working, but that I do so many different things-I […]

Take 17: New Hair

I love Lenka’s new hairstyle! I wish I could be so brave. But I don’t have an adventurous hairdresser like Lenka does. In fact, I don’t have a hairdresser at all. (Can’t you tell?) I’ve never really been much of a hair person. I mean… I have hair. I have […]

Take 16: Lenka’s Dream

Have you ever had a crazy dream that you just had to tell someone? Have you ever had one so insane that you couldn’t tell anyone? I know I make fun of Lenka for her crazy dream, but to be honest… I have always had crazy dreams. Ever since I […]

Take 14: New Year’s Resolutions

It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new year! (I still don’t know why we couldn’t sing the song.) But in any case, we made it to 2018! Welcome! Have you made any New Year’s Resolutions yet? Making New Year’s resolutions is a tradition that dates back […]

Take 13: Looking Back at 2017

It’s a new year! A new start. A time to look forward and make plans and resolutions. A time to imagine what the year ahead might hold for us. A clean slate. But it’s also a time to look back at the last year. All the things we achieved or […]

Take 12: Mince pies

It’s Christmas. And nothing means Christmas to me more than mince pies. I love them! But I won’t eat them at any other time of year because when I eat my first mince pie, Christmas begins. A traditional British Christmas has so much delicious food. Some recipes have been around […]

Take 11: Weather Idioms

People often ask me if it’s true that British people always talk about the weather. Yes it is. We do. But it’s not because we’re obsessed… okay, it’s not only because we’re obsessed. It’s also because UK weather is a good topic. It’s totally unpredictable and always changing! I can’t […]
