Such a peculiar thing this life is. One year ago, in fact even last week, I was sitting and remembering my Icelandic days. I truly missed the place, its vibes and the stress-free life I'd lead there. I even started to think how it'd be like to be back, to start all over again there.... Continue Reading →
Somewhere in Warsaw, Poland.January 2018.
Good to be back?
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... 😉 To my amazement, I last posted 8 months ago for Easter... Continue Reading →
A mystery train
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... Continue Reading →
Spring, welcome back
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. The spring is officially announced when you can go outside wearing shorts and relax all day in the sun. On the beach. In fact,... Continue Reading →

Morskie Oko Park Tour

Ideal conditions to go for a tour and learn something new about the capital city. It happened that today the tour was about the old part of Mokotow district, the "residential" area where in the...

Have a good week!
Usually, on Monday mornings I get up with a "don't-come-close-to-me" attitude. Firstly, because I hate mornings. Secondly, I hate Mondays. Today, it wasn't any better. Especially when I had in mind a vision of all the morning spent in public offices... However, the more I walked through the city, the better I felt. It's such... Continue Reading →
Good to have polite neighbours
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... Continue Reading →
Finally a good timelapse of Warsaw?
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... Continue Reading →
