Ah – Blog Friends

How things change. About a year ago I was blog-less (and to be honest, rather considered blogs to be the preserve of people without fully functioning social abilities). How wrong I was. The blog has actually been a brilliant way to meet people in Prague, and to keep in touch with friends elsewhere.  Who knew? … Continue reading

Winter Running

This time of year it is easy to feel good about yourself in Prague.  Merely poking your head outside, as the days shorten and the temperatures tumble quickly, is enough to make you feel like a heroic arctic explorer.  For those of you who don’t live in Prague (or, quite sensibly, have not ventured outside recently) … Continue reading

Remember Movember. Or “All good blog posts start with some inane chat about the weather”

Ah, November is here.  For some autumnal joy have a look at my Flickr page, including snaps from my recent stroll through the forest near Karlštejn.  I felt the winter creeping on this morning though.  I’d meant to go for a run early this morning but the chilly cloud of frozen fog that had wrapped its sneaky … Continue reading

Five steps to an awesome autumn

Those of you in Prague and perhaps elsewhere in Europe, may have noticed the arrival of autumn.  From the rapidly dropping evening temperature and red leaves on every tree to magazines featuring “Winter coats 2011” – winter is on its way. This got me thinking about the winter treats in which you are able to indulge in a city where … Continue reading

Simply messing about in boats

I had a my pal ‘Pal’  out to stay with me in Prague this weekend (I don’t know when we started calling each other Pal, but we do, so just go with it).  It’s great having people over from the UK. They bring out all the important stuff like Grazia and the Evening Standard.  I now know all about Jen’s new … Continue reading

Burning witches and swan-shaped pedaloes

It snowed in Prague yesterday.  It is May. I feel lied to.  The Prague weather has been mis-sold. Everyone told me to look forward to the spring.  And spring seemed (at least temporarily) to be here… Prague changed dramatically throughout March and April,  as the weather became more temperate.  The snow stopped, apparently only for … Continue reading

A few of my favourite things (take 2)

I told you this would happen. I am indecisive and unable to make up my mind.  The time has come to update my personal list of Prague’s top attractions.  Previously I favoured: the metro system, the opera, carp at Christmas, weird name abbreviations, Czech inventions and the Woman on Zelezna.  Just the other day I realised it … Continue reading

New boots, old squirrel

My wardrobe has changed considerably over the last few months. I was warned by a number of people about the severity of the Prague winter but I don’t think I took adequate notice.  In the same way that people do not have the physical capacity to fully remember or properly imagine painful sensations, I do not think … Continue reading

Summer coming early?!

 I just thought I should send out a buoyant message to you all, as it’s just so wonderfully sunny in Prague!  I had my windows open and central heating off yesterday for goodness sake! Although perhaps that was a little premature as by the late evening the flat was freezing, our baby-kittens looked at me like … Continue reading
