2015 travel destinations

I am a planning freak, I am a highly organized person and details matters to me. When it comes to travelling, I love to spend time researching and planning things to do there ahead. I love to plan places where I want to visit, I love to experience and explore.
This year is coming closer to the end, exams finished (even though got deadlines ahead after Christmas break, freaking out now though) but I have 2 trips ahead still and hopefully I'll end this year fantastically. Looking forward to share with you. Don't forgot to follow me on instagram and facebook as these are first updated before the post is up online ;) 

With next year, there is a lot of things happening for all of us. So make a wise decision and make the most of it of your time. 
Here is my short list of places I am planning to visit for following year. There are many reasons why I have chosen these places, however, it is subject to change throughout the time. Places may be delayed, changed, add on or anything can happen. But some recommendations for you as well where you can make a holiday or a getaway in :) Places that I recommend to visit as well;)
But it's always nice to have a view in order to plan everything around it and budget it, right? Hands up who loves to travel as I do?

1. Scotland - Edinburgh, Glasgow
Taking up a chance while in UK, last Christmas I have travelled to Wales, this year I have been in Ireland (not in Norther Ireland though), so craving to visit Scotland as well.


2. Netherland - Amsterdam
I was craving to here for a long time, as it was near and it looks so beautiful and I love canals and everything around the water. So definitelly want to make and extended weekend trip over here, probably during spring time where the weather will be much nice, tulips are around and I can scroll the city on the bike.


3. Spain - Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia, Sevilla
Been in Spain couple years ago with family, visited Barcelona and Costa Brava. However I am planning to do more exploratory trip in Spain, like this summer in Morocco. I have chosen 4 cities for a period of up to 2 weeks. So going to be very intense and tired, but worth it (hopefully). I like to travel to more cities in a country to see differences, properly get in their culture and just to compare. Every region has its own tradition, way of thinking, monuments and own beauty, right? So why judge the whole country based on the capital or one city we have visited?


4. Iceland - Reykjavik, day trips to nature
Before this, I need to do some proper winter shopping, otherwise I'll freeze there. For next year I have to definitelly plan a trip during early winter to Iceland. My main reason is to see the Northern lights! Yes, not leaving until I will see them:D But well, many winters now I haven't experienced the proper cold and snow, so it would be nice to have some snow for a while  and to see the natural winter scenery.  (hopefully, the weather changes, and this Christmas there will be a snow)



5. Poland - Warsaw, Wroclaw, Gdansk
The only neigbourhood I haven't been to. And I don't know actually why? Probably, we don't have any family friends or member there or none of my friends want to go there? But I am hoping to change this by visit some of their cities, as in London I have met a lot of Polish people and they have been suggesting me some places where it is nice, so would be nice to go to see it by myself.



6. England - Manchester, Brighton, Devon
I would like to take up more chance to travel in UK while I am still here. As this last term I had an amazing timetable, giving me a proper extended weekend, I took this chance to travel around a lot. I would like to continue with this, even though the timetable is not flexible anymore as well as with this last year at university coming up, I need to properly schedule my time. They are still few places I would like to explore in the England, places I'd like to visit as long as my friends are at that city at the moment (yay, no fees for accommodations!:D) Here are my top 3 places where I'd like to visit in a near future. Places I haven't been, however I have been once in Brighton already, ages ago when I was youngers and travelling to UK for summer courses.



7. Portugal - Porto
Last summer I had a chance to visit for a first time Portugal. We spent a week in Lisbon and I totally fall in love with this city. There is something beautiful about it. Those alleys, the weather, the endless small roads, trams and city overlooking to the sea. It is as well a first time where I have tried surfing, and totally up for it next time again. (my body was so exhausted after the half day surf lesson). So much new and first time happening over there. I would like to explore the Portugal culture more and visit this beautiful city. A hill overlooking city and famous for producing its wine.

Birmingham photo diary

So couple weeks ago I went for a day trip to Birmingham. Loved the area around the canal and especially now all Christmas markets are in the city, and literally they have markets everywhere in the city, which is good and festive. However, it gets very crowded and surprisingly it was so many German stalls. But it was very beautiful!

Před pár týdny jsem si udělala jednodenní výlet do Birminghamu. Zalíbila jsem si to místo kolem kanálu a hlavně teď před Vánocemi, tak celé centrum bylo ozdobeno a doslova na každém kroku byly stánky. Měla jsem z toho krásné před Vánoční pocit. Přesto, že město je menší, a hlavně ještě před Vánocemi a byla sobota, tak se to během odpoledně pořádně přeplnělo, překvapuje mě, že všechny stánky byly Bavorské, samé pivo a párky tam:D Ale krásné město:)

Turtle neck knitwear

Photos taken a bit while ago, just had too many related post to post first for the upcoming festive mood. Now I would not dare to walk with my bare legs out in this weather. This was taken couple weeks ago, when in London was still nice and chilled. Wearing a crop turtle neck warm sweater together with a grey wrapped skirt, all from H&M. Paired it with my cobalt blue lace heels.

Fotky pořízené už pár týdnů před, kdy počasí v Londýně bylo ještě relativně fajn. Nebyl vůbec čas tyto fotky sem hodit, jelikož jsem dala přednost článkům, které souvisí s nadcházejí slavnostmi. Teď bych si už neodvážela jít ven s holýma nohama. Na sobě mam teplý crop svetr s vyším krkem a šedý asymetrickou sukni, vše z H&M společně s kobaltově modrýma podpatkami.

Nextmas wishlist



1. Coat / 2. Boots  / 3. Running shoes black and/or white / 4. Slouchy clutch bag / 5. Flower decoration / 6. Flower picture / 7. Running trousers long and/or shorter

Christmas is just around the corner, can't still believe how this whole year run so fast again. It seems as when I get older, the time flies faster and faster. Days get shorter and in my mind is just a little snapshots of what I have done actually in those times. Therefore we need to appreciate our time and make the most of it, as you can;t buy time and always be at the right time and the right place.

For this Christmas, I have pulled out items that I am more in need rather than a dreamy wishlist. But well, it is not gurantee that I will have a chance to get all from this list.

I am in need of a new coat, just to refresh my wardrobe and my outter outfits. Was looking for camel, grey warm coats. Or maybe another nice black one wouldn't be bad as well. But when I saw this camel coat and when they especially do have a petite size, that's what I am in need of! It is actually ahrd to find a perfect coat which would fit me.
After this Christmas, I am going to hit the gym as previously. Therefore need to some new active sportswear to feel ready and feel that I have to use them.
Couple days ago I just totally broke my nice boots which I have them for a year. So in need of a replacement as those ones are actually the only boots I got. I fall in love with knee height or over the knee boots, what do you think? Even though, I am petite size, it keeps me warm:D
As you might read in my previous posts, I have been looking for this bag slouchy clutch for a long time, I came across this one on Next and it's pretty perfect and comes in two colours.. hmm which one shall I take now? ://
Lastly, as a new year is approaching, my room needs a clean up as well, therefore new decorations and shifting stuff from one place to another will be in need before New Year. I love soft colours, flowers and decent home accessories.
