Hamiczech – A Travel Blogger & Influencer From the Czech Republic





I am Hamiczech – a travel blogger and a travel influencer from the Czech Republic. My nickname is an abbreviation of my real name and my country.

I have loved traveling ever since I was a child, when my parents took me many times to former Yugoslavia, on the territory of today’s Croatia. We slept in camps, we didn’t have money for hotels. But we didn´t care, we were happy that we are finally at the sea.

That’s probably why Croatia is still one of my favorite countries, I visit it often. Whenever I smell the scent of pines and figs, I remember my childhood.

Before 1989 it was for us very difficult to travel. There were only 5 travel agencies in the former Czechoslovakia. Most Czechoslovaks stayed on vacation in their own country, going abroad was a very complicated process. If someone managed to travel, the goal was a holiday in the countries of the socialist bloc (East Germany, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria). An invitation letter was needed to the Soviet Union or Poland. And Yugoslavia (Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia was formed by today’s states Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Serbia and Slovenia) was forbidden to the majority of citizens of the Czechoslovakia at that time, it began to be too close to the west and thus became a dangerous destination.

After Velvet revolution in 1989 our borders to neighboring countries opened. We traveled a lot, but we mostly didnt have money for hotels and for restaurants, it was very expensive for us. Czechs were known as a nation of pate makers (canned food).

And now? We are nation of travellers. We stay in hotels, we enjoy fine dining. What a big jump! But it took a while.

Back to my own memories. I have been skiing since I was two years old. And I love it till today, I just changed ski for snowboard when I was a teenager. I didn’t see the Alps for the first time until 2001 and I thought I was in paradise. Long groomed ski slopes, chairlifts and cable cars, no queues, mostly beautiful weather… I could only dream of that here at the time. Then we went to the Alps every year and I stopped enjoying skiing in the Czech Republic, we don’t have such high mountains, nor such snow conditions as Austria or Italy, which totally spoiled me 🙂 Today, the slopes in the Czech Republic have been groomed, a lot is invested in ski areas, but the queues mostly remained.

Later, when I studied at the university, my friends and I had the opportunity to visit the USA, specifically Florida, for work and travel. It was just summer when Hurricane Katrina hit the US, so it must have been 2005. It’s not nice when the TV starts blaring and the title is running: watch out, a hurricane is coming! And you have no idea what to do. The palm trees were bending to the ground, it was raining terribly, and in those “paper” houses of theirs you pray that it will last. Mothers called us to see if we were alive, they were dying of fear. We were lucky that the place where we stayed was only marginally affected.
We worked as maids in a hotel at that time. You probably don’t realize how hard it is until you try, and what a mess people are capable of making in a luxury hotel room (for example, someone decided to make a beach in a marble bathroom and sprinkled sand all over the shower). Since then, I always leave a tip for the maids and try to keep the room as tidy as possible.

Because travelling is my great hobby, I decided to create travel account on Instagram and share my travel experiences and recommendations. And people started following me. In this way, I would like to thank all my fans that even though I’m not famous, that they follow me in such a large number, I’m happy when someone appreciates my work.

Since Instagram is mainly for sharing photos, I also started writing a blog in Czech and English so that if someone is interested in the topic, they can read more information. I mostly write detailed reviews about hotels I’ve visited and I am involved in the promotion of hotels, so if you work as a PR in this industry and you like my work, don’t hesitate to contact me. But I also write about the visited places in every detail. Since I have my own business, I can’t dedicate myself to blogging as much as I’d like, it’s very time-consuming, but I try to write 1-2 articles a month. Hopefully these articles will help someone in deciding whether to go or not.

Thank you very much for reading my dear travel fans and Happy Travels!

The Foundational Steps of Divine Wisdom and Purpose By: Ladaro (Monsta Yo) Pennix II and Colin Randolph




The Foundational Steps of Divine Wisdom and Purpose

This project originally started as an examination of our past, aiming to expose our mistakes and explore our transformation over time. Monsta Yo and I wanted to compare how we had evolved from a regretful period to where we are now. However, delving into our painful memories from decades of incarceration revealed disturbing and disheartening experiences. We realized how deeply we had been involved in destructive behaviors towards others and ourselves, driven by violence, hatred, and fury. Our lives had been shaped by a system that perpetuated hatred and violence, leaving us unable to understand why we behaved the way we did.

Reflecting on our past proved to be emotionally draining, prompting us to shift our focus towards exploring the factors that shaped us into the men we are today. Monsta Yo suggested concentrating on our foundational beliefs, leading to the creation of “The Foundational Steps of Divine Purpose and Wisdom.” We found that scripture had a profound impact on our lives and decided to center our project around its teachings.

I gathered scriptures that had influenced me significantly and discussed their practical applications, especially for those who are incarcerated. Monsta Yo, with his theological expertise, provided insights into the power and wisdom of these scriptures, enriching our reflections. Together, we brought passion, perspective, and purpose to each discussion, resulting in the title “The Foundational Steps of Divine Wisdom and Purpose.”

Through this project, we realized that examining our past was not just about acknowledging our mistakes but understanding the journey of our transformation. Our painful memories laid the foundation for our growth, highlighted through our reflections on scripture’s wisdom and purpose. This project evolved into a testament to our faith and the transformative power of scripture.

Monsta Yo’s theological insights complemented my reflections, offering a deeper understanding of the scriptures’ impact. By blending personal experiences with theological wisdom, we created a compelling exploration of the Divine wisdom and purpose found in scriptures.
