    Katsuo-ji: a place to make a wish

    In April when we went to Japan, we managed to go to the Katsuo-ji temple, a place we have never visited before. It’s quite hard to get to by public transportation, but we were lucky enough to get a ride up to the mountain. As we were approaching, we got excited because it looked like we would finally see some blooming Sakura trees. Until then we were quite unlucky, missing the full bloom by just a few days. The trees added to the already amazing view. Katsuo-ji Temple is unique mostly because of the tiny Daruma dolls that people leave behind for good fortune. The place is filled with these…

    San Diego Road Trip

    One weekend we decided to drive from Los Angeles, down to San Diego. Usually the drive about two hours long, making it the perfect day trip. The city is beautiful and it is a lot of fun to just walk around. The ride down took a little longer than expected. We hit a couple of car accidents along the way, so it took us more than three hours to drive down. Except for a foggy/smoggy part of the highway, the drive was really nice, right along the coastline. On a warm, pretty day, it must be even more gorgeous. By the time we got to San Diego, we were starving, so…

    Our ski-less winter holiday in Avoriaz

    This winter, Pav and I hit a few travel milestones and some travel firsts (somewhat unexpected). We had originally planned a family ski holiday in Avoriaz, France, which didn’t quite pan out as we imagined it. First, it was just the two of us without the rest of the family and, second, we had no snow to actually ski on. Which made for quite an interesting holiday. We arrived in Avoriaz on Dec 31st, 2017 definitely ready to greet 2017 with a big hug. We got there around 4 PM after quite a few delays due to freezing fog, which was present across all airports we visited (we flew Prague-Brussels-Geneva).…

    Los Angeles -> San Francisco Road Trip

    One weekend me and my friends decided to drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco, spend one night there and drive back the next day. It was absolutely amazing trip, even though not everything went quite as planned. We found out google lied to us, but we were ok with it. We did so much in these two days, to really take advantage of where we were. Here’s a couple of things we did and what we learned. First, we decided to take the PCH and the 101 up. So we drove right along the coast from Santa Monica, to Malibu and Oxnard. Unsurprisingly we were the only people driving…

    Los Angeles: Three month adventure!

    The next couple of months I will be exploring Los Angeles as I finish up my last semester of college. I’m excited to experience a new city that I have never been to before and I want to document and share what I find! I will continue to update this article, with new places to see, where to eat, photos and more information on LA! My first week in LA has actually been very rainy, which no one prepared me for. To be fair, no one here actually seems prepared either. So, a TIP for anyone coming to LA, it is very possible that January will be cold and rainy.…
