The fall

Usually when I think about the fall, I imagine the cold and dark mornings, unpleasant rain and wind and sleepy weather that makes you want to stay in bed all day,curled up in blankets with a cup of hot tea and some biscuits. Luckily, being a student and having quite a lot of things to read (which can be comfortably donw in bed) I can afford it, but I am also thankful to have some duties which I cannot miss out and which prevent me from turning into a complete sofa potato (in this case a bed potato). And on the other side, when the sky clears up a bit and the wind stops, fall turns out to be a very nice and colourful season. This picture was taken week during a walk along the Vltava riverbank.

Summer 2010 flashbacks

In spite of promising myself that I will blog more, I have posted nothing about my summer holidays so far. However, now that the weather is dark and cold and everything is so lazy, sleepy and depressing, I think it’s the right time for a few flashbacks:)
To be honest, I think this has been one of the best summers of my life, probably because I have finished a university degree and could go and enjoy my summer with a clear head, for the first time after three years. After visiting my parents for almost three weeks, I went to an amazing boat trip around Sardinia and Corsica for a week. We had a great time on a sea, only partially disturbed by little vertigos and occassional sea-sickness, but the freediving and snorchelling was perfect and being on a boat was more enjoyable that I have originally thought.

After I came back to Prague, I quickly unpacked, washed the clothes and repacked them for another trip, this time to Croatian island Brač, where I have already been twice on a marine biology field trip with my university supervisors. This was mostly boring, because it was incredibly hot and I didn’t have anything enjoyable to do. By the end of the trip a big storm came and brought cooler weather, but also cooled down the water in the sea, so I spent most of the time out of it.

All these wonderful things seem to be so far away now, the weather is dull and cold, the overall atmosphere is sad compared to what I just wrote about and I keep dreaming about the ocean and visiting new places... Well, I think it is time I started saving up for summer 2011!
