Oh la la, Paris!

I can´t believe it, I am going to the City of Light (and Love :D)! This time tomorrow I will be waiting at the airport with my friends. Beyond excited! We organised it all ourselves, so I really hope that everything will turn out great. Weather doesn´t seem to be in our favor but I am not the one to complain. After all, we will get to see probably the most beautiful city in the world... so grateful for that. We have been saving up for this so long and now one of our dreams came true. 

We´re gonna spend there 10 days (actually just 8 because we will arrive very late and leave very early) and you wouldn´t believe how long is our list of must-sees. I don´t know if I want to count it for you, but why not. Sooo... 40! *freaking out a little bit* 40 museums, galerries, parks, streets, chateau (how am I supposed to say it in plural? no idea) and what not. I know it sounds crazy, but we mastered our plan and it´s NOT gonna be one of those whistle-stop tours that you spend running and at the end of the day you realise that you didn´t have enough time for anything. I still get bad-tempered when I imagine guide´s voice calling "Come on, quickly please!" I have my experience with this kind ou tour and all I say is - never again. I need to take my time. If I want to stay in one particular museum 4 hours, then I will stay 4 hours. And our plan allows us that. I want to see as much as I can but at the end I don´t want to run BY all historical places (and that was London for me, unfortunately). 30 minutes for National Gallery is NOT enough. 

Anyways, now I can decide what I want to do, how long I want to stay here and there.... You get the idea. It´s first time I am going somwhere only with my friends so that´s the reason why I was super careful to make everything was all right and prepared. Expect lots of posts and photos of Paris :)

New suitcase

I just recently arrived back from Italy and realised that I am in a desperate need of  a new suitcase - one that would last me years and years and more importantly, that would be spacious enough that I could squeeze in it all my necessities. And that´s a hard task, believe me. It wouldn´t hurt if it would also look good, too. Sounds like mission impossible? Well, depends on where you are living. I was worried because place where I live is rather small - there´s 99,999999% and so on chance that you have never heard of it. So imagine my surprise when I found a perfect piece that I fell in love with - it´s big, it´s silver, it´s elegant and it´s mine!  *happy dance* (and as my family said it´s very resistible, probably should survive an explosion - and in my case never say never, I am epitome of bad luck) 

I know that a suitcase is an item worth of investing money, but still... I was asking myself - should I buy something cheaper but made in China (and that would mean worse quality) or should I get "higher-class" suitcase? Decisions, decisions... But sales were in my favor and I got a very well-made suitcase by an italian brand named Roncato that has been manufacturing bags for over 50 years. 
So, here´s the beauty (and yes, I was totally making photos on my balcony :D):

As you can already see on the photo, I did personalize this suitcase a little bit, adding a smiley sticker! Just to recognize it better at the airport :)

                                                                                                                           Bye, Aneta

Book Trailer - The Forsaken

So I have just come across this trailer made for book called The Forsaken written by Lisa M. Stasse, and let me tell you that I am blown away! This book looks very interesting to me since I am a huge dystopian fan. The cover is  futuristic (which, well, while talking about dystopian world is kinda... necessary :D) but still simple, nothing disturbs your attention in a bad way. I also like the way the title is written, it compliments the picture very well. It´s not the best book cover ever, but I certainly like it :). 

You can check the annotation and cover on Goodreads HERE, my favourite website book-wise (maybe except bookdepositary but we all know why this particular site is so amazing and if not I think I will write a post soon). The story promises adventure and fight for survival - grrr, why do I have to be so excited??? Maybe because since I have read The Hunger Games series I am on a constant hunt for another equally good books set in dystopian world. So far not so successful but these things require time. It probably has something to do with Suzanne Collin´s utter brilliance... hmm... 

Anyway, here´s the thing that I am talking about. What do you think? Does it look promising? 

The Forsaken is published by Simon and Schuster Books in July, 2012.
