lato w mieście

Stoję na wysoko przebiegającej nad Odrą cienkiej kładce zwierzynieckiej. Patrzę na leniwy nurt rzeki. Czas płynie wolniej w upały.  Jakaś początkująca kapela przygotowuje się do wieczornego koncertu. Powoli sączę piwo, które zdążyło się już nagrzać. Upalne popołudnie chyli się ku wieczorowi ściągając w te okolice wygłodniałych atrakcji ludzi. Pufy beach baru powoli wypełniają się kolejnymi przybyszami….

when in Amsterdam | when in Summer

It was Summer. And it was Amsterdam. And I couldn’t get enough of this city Było lato. Lato w mieście. Czasem próbowałam od niego uciec, jadać dalej na południowy wschód, ale w efekcie zawsze wracałam z przekonaniem, że. “I couldn’t get enough of this city”. Amsterdam miał być tylko przystankiem, a zrobił się miejscem, którego…

Z dna szuflady

Mój paszport leży zakopany w szufladzie pod stosem innych dokumentów. Nie wyciągany już od dłuższego czasu i to wcale nie dlatego, że obecne sytuacja sprawia, że możliwości podróży są ograniczone. Przecież na ogół nawet go nie potrzeba. Wystarczy dowód osobisty, który i tak z rzadka jest sprawdzany. Bo przecież większość granic przekracza się płynnie. Wręcz niezauważalnie. Świat się skurczył, a granice zatarły.

where to go out in Porto ?

In the evening Porto doesn’t lose its charm. One can say it even looks better. Ribeira, if it’s possible, gets even more crowded and the Ponte Luis bridge looks stunning in the evening lights.

you keep calling me back, o Porto

When you fly to Porto your luggage gets the “OPO” sticker because you arrive to “o Porto”. The city seems to be a bit forgotten by the rest of continent and the life flows slower here. The vibe of the ocean gives it a specific atmosphere.

Utrecht, czyli Holandia w (polukrowanej) pigułce

Utrecht is like The Netherlands in a nutshell. You will find here small brick houses, channels, load of galleries and thousands of bikes. The walk might be short but full of breathtaking moments.

How to paint a perfect city: a postcard from Ghent

Everybody knows that Belgium is the capital of chocolate. Thus, it’s no wonder that one of the biggest Belgic cities looks like a box of chocolates. Inside, after opening the box, you will find a beautiful city that looks like beautifully decorated chic chocolates. The capital of Flanders is filled with small houses that can enchant and give the feeling that we are in some medieval fairy tale.

A quick run through​ Brussels

I have only few hours to explore the city but that that’s perfect. The sun is shining and the city looks dazzling in the sunset light. All cafe places are overloaded with people. Brussel is bustling.

A day in Palma de Mallorca

The massive cathedral and the numerous windmills tower over the beautiful city which is located right by the sea. Palma has nothing to do with the resort city which I have imagined. The Old Town is charming and has a touch of many cultures which the city has experienced. It offers an endless array of galleries, historic monuments and good food. 

5 things you should do when you visit Mallorca​

I would never say that I would like Mallorca. I wouldn’t believe if somebody told me that I would go there. But yet I went I’m absolutely in love with it! Mallorca so much surprised me! Come with me for a short trip through this amazing Spanish island!

One day trip in the Netherlands​

Just as real espresso tastes best when drinking slowly on a small square in Italy, the harsh northern countries visited in the winter reveal more of their character and authenticity. The temperature might not be the most pleasant but it gives you a good excuse to drop in somewhere for a coffee whenever you feel like.

how Julia bought her first thing in the Netherlands and what was it

And there it was – my very ugly black bike standing at the Boergoensestraat – and me – staring at it proudly not knowing by this time that soon I will have to invest double its worth in the reparations. It might had been love at first sight but we were not supposed to live happily ever after.
