A Journey to the European Capital

There are two kinds of places I enjoy visiting. The first one is any place with an interesting ancient history. The second kind is any place that has a significant role in our world nowadays, and Brussels surely is one of those places. It is a beautiful centre of the European Union. In the eyes of Europeans, Brussels is a symbol of wealth and prosperity, however, I realized very quickly that the city had two different faces. I chose Brussels as my destination, because I wanted to see where I am going to work one day. Yes, I want to[…]

Waffle House: An Improvisational Inquisition

The first improv show of the year was Thursday evening! For those of you who don’t attend MNU yet or missed the show on Thursday let me take you on a journey… this is improv: (Side bar: Waffle House is gross and was the pinnacle of many jokes at the show). Sometimes in improv rehearsals we use Blake’s head as a mop.   Thank you Renee for this face. That is all.   Prayer before the show!   Chloroform, surgery, and a morgue.   Actor Switch       Boiling Point.     Scenes from a Hat   Post show[…]

The Grand Adventure of Offenburg, Germany

My third stop on my way to school was Offenburg, Germany. Funny story. Actually we were planning on going to Munich, but we didn’t buy our train tickets until the day of (and therefore didn’t know the times of the trains going to Munich) and ended up missing our train. We could then either stay another night in Paris, or just get on the next train that was going somewhere (anywhere) in Germany. Obviously from the title of this blog, we chose the latter.

Paris was my favorite city, but we did want to see Germany. Offenburg was a cute little town that was kind of on the border of Germany and France. The other exciting thing about all of this was that we had no idea where we were staying once we got to Germany. Our train got in at like 11 at night. We got out of the train station and walked across the street to the only thing that was open, which was the pub, and hoped they spoke English. They pointed us down the street to a hotel and luckily it was a pretty nice hotel, but not too overly priced. Basically we ended up staying in Germany for less than 24 hours, but it was definitely a grand adventure.

WaterFire at the Plaza

This weekend was the WaterFire event in Kansas City which is an installation of fires along the banks of Brush Creek next to the Country Club Plaza. Everyone who has seen how glamorous the Plaza itself is can now imagine what such an event would look like. That MNU is close to KC truly is an advantage, especially for people like me who are used to live in the suburban areas of big towns. I live close to the city, Hamburg, in Germany. This city is so big that it is considered an own state. With a big city nearby,[…]

My European Summer

Let me tell you about my summer in Europe that was definitely something else! After spending ten months in the United States, I had this strange feeling that I would be a tourist in my own country. I was looking forward to spending some time back home in the Czech Republic. I missed my family, my girlfriend and the “right” meal portions that don’t make you fat after one week. I also missed the simplicity of expressing my thoughts in my mother tongue. All of this was my source of thrill. However, after my plane landed in Prague and my[…]
