Just a Ferry Away

Last weekend was a holiday weekend and me and my boyfriend wanted to get out of the city but not go too far at the same time. We decided to take the train and ferry to Fire Island and walk over 10 miles while occasionally having a drink (or two...) at a bar. After all what are these celebration days for, right? It was a fun day and even though I wasn't wowed by the beaches because let's face it I've been to some pretty amazing ones I got just what I needed - the "out of the city" feeling. Let's be honest I love New York so much, however, sometimes you just feel like getting lost in the forest.  
Minuly vikend byl prodlouzeny o den volna diky oslave Dne nezavisloti a s pritelem jsme se rozhodli pondeli stravit mimo mesto. Nicmene nechtelo se nam nikam daleko a tak rozhodnuti padlo na Fire Island, ktery je vzdaleny jen hodinu vlakem a kratkou plavbu trajektem. Usli jsme pres patnact kilometru a obcas se zregenerovali drinkem (nebo dvema) v baru. No od ceho jsou tyhle svatky, ze :). Vylet byl super a ikdyz se neplanuji v nejblizsi dobe vratit, protoze tamni plaze me nijak neohromily, coz je celkem pochopitelne, protoze jsem uz videla hodne uzasnych plazi po celem svete, splnilo to svuj ucel a ja mela pocit, ze jsem "vypadla z mesta". Budme uprimni, ja New York opravdu miluju, ale nekdy se chcete proste ztratit v lese.

Just in time for the red, white and blue! (Just so you know my national flag - Czech actually has the same colors so lucky me :P.) I hope you are all having a fun long weekend and that you are as excited as I am about this summer. I already got my flight tickets sorted and I'm going to Europe for the whole August and I just can't wait. What do you all have planned?
Akorat vcas na svatek cervene, bile a modre aka Den nezavisloti. Je fajn, ze moje "vlastni" ceske vlajka ma ty stejne barvy :P. Doufam, ze si vsichni uzivate dlouhy vikend a ze jste stejne nadseni z tohoto leta jako ja (nebo jeste vic?). Taky jsem si uz koupila letenky a cely srpen budu v Evrope, uz se nemuzu dockat. Co mate v planu vy?

All That Jazz

Guess by Marciana slip dress, Zara hat, Antipearle ring
One of the many things I love about living in New York is that there's always so much going on. There's something for everybody. Seriously. Like jazz fans... This was my first time at the legendary Jazz Age Lawn Festival at Governor's Island but I think it's safe to say it wasn't my last. What an incredible event especially due to all the effort the attendees put into their costumes. It was so inspiring for me... I just stared at everybody and their absolutely perfect picnic set ups and thought to myself that I need to step up my game next time. Everybody from NY Magazine, the Gothamist, Town & Country, to even WWD covered this special event. Here's my favrite article.
Jedna z mnoha veci, kterou miluju na zivote v New Yorku je to, ze se tady porad neco deje. Kazdy si tady neco najde. Myslim to vazne. Treba i jazzovi fanousci... Tohle byla moje prvni navsteva legendarniho jazzoveho festivalu na Governor's ostrove a myslim, ze muzu s klidem rict, ze jsem to nebylo naposledy, co jsem se zucastnila. Byla to skvela akce, hlavne diky vsem navstevnikum, kteri venovali opravdu nemalou pozornost svym outfitum. Bylo to pro me hodne inspirujici, asi jsem dost nevybirave zirala na vsechny zucastnene a jejich absolutne perfektni piknikove sety a rikala jsem si, ze mam tedy hodne co dohanet do pristiho festivalu. Kazdy pocinaje NY magazine, pres The Gothamist, Town & Country az po WWD venovali tomuto specialnimu eventu clanek. Zde je jeden z mych oblibenych.

LA Diary

First morning and our breakfast at Rawberri.
One of the prettiest stores on Melrose Place - Isabel Marant.
I couldn't resist taking these pictures even though I'm clearly NOT made in LA :)
The walk of fame is like Times Sq - you go there once just to see and never return...
The reason why me and Tereza came to LA - Los Labios.
We squeezed this awesome (though light) hike into our schedule and it was worth it!
My friend Natalka took us to Abbot Kinney and introduced us to a crazy good ice cream shop so thank you again :).
I had an amazing time so thank you all!
Photos by me and Tereza Janakova.

Sandbank Picnic

I've recently came back from heaven... (yes again!). I took a vacation and spent it partially hiking in Kerala, India and sunbathing in the Maldives. The absolute highlight of the second part of my trip was this sandbank picnic excursion we took with my boyfriend. It was organized by the super nice staff at the resort we stayed at: Kurumba. We had a fun crew taking us to the sandbank (essentially a strip of white sand in the middle of nowhere so a bit scary for me at the beginning), off loading food and drinks for our light seafood salad style lunch and then taking us back to the resort safely. Altogether you spend about two hours on the yacht getting there and back and three to four hours on the sandbank. We took advantage of the beautiful atoll island and explored the coral reef surrounding it. I've never been to a place like this and as I've mentioned before the idea that I'm basically in the middle of the Indian ocean (almost) by myself exploring the underwater world was a challenge but it was well worth it. I got used to it very quickly and eventually I loved the fact that me and a few other people could enjoy such a solitude. How often can a person living in New York feel like this? You guesses it - not that often. Overall I'd give this experience five stars and I'm planning to go back. 
Nedavno jsem se vratila z raje... (ano, uz zase). Vzala jsem si dovolenou a stravila ji castecne vysohorskou turistikou v Kerale, v Indii, a opalovanim se na Maledivach. Zlatym hrebem druhe casti meho vyletu byla tato exkurze na piknik na miniaturnim ostruvku, kam jsem si zajela s pritelem. Exkurzi organizoval nas resort Kurumba, ktery bych celkove mohla vychvalit az do nebes. Zabavna posadka nas vzala na "sandbank" (v podstate takovy pisecny nanos uprostred niceho, coz me z pocatku trochu desilo), kde krome nas vylozila i jidlo a piti na piknik ve stylu salaty-a-morske plody a pozdeji nas bezpecne dopravila zpet do naseho resortu. Vsehovsudy stravite cca dve hodiny cestou na jachte tam a zpet a tri az ctyri hodiny na ostruvku. My jsme nelenili a vetsinou casu venovali podrobnemu pruzkumu koraloveho utesu, ktery tento atol obklopuje. Nikdy jsem na podobnem miste nebyla a jak jsem jiz zminila, mela jsem z myslenky, ze jsem (skoro) sama uprostred indickeho oceanu a zkoumam tamni podvodni svet, docela strach, ale byla to vyzva, ktera se vyplatila. Zvykla jsem si rychle a dokonce se mi ta samota moc zalibila. Kolikrat ma clovek zijici v New Yorku takovy pocit samoty? Uhodli jste, ne tak casto. Pro me byl tenhle zazitek naprosto perfektni a planuji si to zopakovat.
