Chandigargh's charm

Rock Garden
Open Hand
the Capitol Complex
Hands down the most attractive sight in India I have seen. Me and my boyfriend took a weekend trip to Chandigargh and we were both blown away. You certainly don't expect to find such a beautiful, clean, comfortable and smart city in the middle of India. 
The entire city was planned by Le Corbusier in the 1950's and sadly it is his only project of such kind to be realized. He planned Chandigargh as an ideal environment for its citizens. The city was decided into 47 Sectors that are supposedly self-sufficient and should be able to cater to most needs of their inhabitants. Sectors are rectangular and measure 800m x 1200m and are similar to each other with the exception of Sectors that are primarily designed as non-residential (for colleges, industry, etc…). This exquisite sample of urban planning attracts about a million tourist per year. Well I will be back...

Boots Season

There's only a few things I like about fall. Boots are definitely on top of that list. And then the feeling when you put your cashmere or wool scarf around your neck for the first time after half a year… Yeah fall is not that bad :). Apart from fashion fall is surely the most exciting season culture-wise. I feel like the best movies come out and let's face it we are more likely to read something meaningful cozying up under the blanket as soon as it gets dark outside than we are under the umbrella by the pool. I personally also feel more drawn towards museums and galleries… So what do you say I give you some tips for what to see and what to enjoy these days?

Je jen par veci, ktere mam na podzimu rada. Kozacky jsou urcite na uplnem vrcholu tohoto seznamu. A taky ten pocit, kdyz se zabalite do kasmirove nebo vlnene saly po tom pul roce… Dobre, podzim neni tak spatny :). Pokud opomeneme modu, podzim je pro me take bezesporu nejzajimavejsim obdobim, co se kultury tyka. Mam pocit, ze se vydavaji ty nejlepsi filmy a co si budeme povidat, taky je vetsi pravdepodobnost, ze se zacteme do neceho smysluplneho, kdyz venku padne tma a my se zavrtame pod deku, nez pod slunecnikem u bazenu. Mne osobne to take vice tahne do muzei a galerii… Takze co kdybych vam priste napsala par tipu kam jit a co zazit?

Indian Summer Lover

I just want to go back to Paris and its Indian summer and go out care-free with bare legs and wet hair… Yes I'm guilty of not styling my hair :). Hats are great…but new heels are better. Much better.
Chci proste zpet do Parize a chci zpet babi leto, abych mohla vyjit ven bezstarostna, s nahyma nohama a mokryma vlasama… Ano, priznavam svou vinu, nestyluji si vlasy. Klobouky jsou super vec… ale nove boty jsou lepsi. O moc lepsi. 

Raised on Champagne

I love champagne. I really do… so when I saw this tee I thought it was perfect for me. I took it with me to Paris as well because Paris is the city of champagne to me (and boy did I drink it there…). Meanwhile I enjoy it every now and then here in New York.

Miluju sampanske. Opravdu… takze kdyz jsem videla tohle tricko, prislo mi, ze je proste uplne pro me. Vzala jsem si ho i do Parize, protoze to je pro me mesto sampanskeho (a ze jsem si ho tam neodpirala…).  V mezicase si obou obcas uzivam i tady v New Yorku.

Dear boots,
you are a love at first sight. I fell for you when I saw weeks ago in Bombay. Now I spotted you again in Paris but you were not the right color. Ultimate they had to deliver you to me all the way from Cannes. It was a long journey but I'm sure we will be happy together.
Moje milovane boots,
byly jste laskou na prvni pohled. Zamilovala jsem se uz pred nekolika tydny v Bombayi. Ted jsem vas znovu uvidela v Parizi, ale nebyly jste moje barva. Nakonec mi vas dorucili az z Cannes… Byla to dlouha cesta, ale jsem si jista, ze spolu budeme stastni.

Neemrana

I just got back from my trip to India and I decided to share a few tips with you. I'm going to start with this old fort just because it's still wedding season and this is a very popular honeymoon spot. The fort was built in the 15th century and served as a home to the Neemrana rulers. The ruler moved away when it started to fall apart and unable to sell it he decided to do some reconstruction. It reopened in 1991 as a palace style hotel and its twelve levels now offer two swimming pools, spa, amphitheatre, conference room, seven different types of suites and rooms and a couple spots to eat and drink.
It takes about 2hrs to drive there from Delhi and you can find all the information here.
Prave jsem se vratila z pobytu v Indii a rozhodla jsem se podelit o par tipu. Zacnu touhle starou pevnosti, protoze je svatebni sezona v plnem proudu a tohle je velmi popularni destinace na libanky. Pevnost byla postavena uz v 15. stoleti a slouzila jako domov vladcum Neemrany. Vladar se odstehoval pryc, kdyz se pevnost zacala rozpadat a po neuspesnych pokusech o prodej se pustil do rekonstrukce. V roce 1991 byla pevnost znovu otevrena jako hotel a jejich dvanact podlazi dnes nabizi dva bazeny, wellness, amfiteatr, konferencni mistnost, sedm typu suit a pokoju a nekolik mist k obcerstveni.
Z Delhi je to cca 2 hodiny autem a vsechny informace najdete tady.
