It’s been ages since I last wrote a post. I got inspired to get back here by some spammer trying to convince me my blog is worth to go viral and she (???) has some useful tips to help me become more visible… ūüėČ To my amazement, I last posted 8 months ago for Easter […]

I love travelling by train in Poland. Such journeys almost always abound in a variety of unexpected situations. For example, today’s trip was full of educational opportunities. When I was waiting 2 hours for the train (that apparently wasn’t meant to show up), I had a great chance to learn all the trains’ timetables and […]

Have you ever wondered what is the real sign of spring? Birds singing, or maybe green leaves on trees, flowers in bloom? Apparently, in Warsaw it seems a little bit different.

Evey day when I ¬†leave my flat or get back home I can’t help smiling to myself. It’s all because of this very little piece of paper taped to the wall downstairs of my building. It’s like a regular message to all the people having or renting the flats in the building. Nothing special at […]

For about 3 days I’ve been noticing on different websites and Facebook fanpages a teaser of a timelapse dedicated to Warsaw. So far whenever I’ve seen any, I must admit that I was quite disappointed. Randomly chosen places, not very good shots, strange music… All the things made me rather unwilling to see more such […]
