Wang Church – A Curiosity

Wang Church – A Curiosity
Wang Church is the main touristic attraction of a little mountain village Karpacz. It is situated in southern Poland just at the foot of an old mountain range Karkonosze.

Meeting Spring In Karkonosze

Meeting Spring In Karkonosze
Few weeks ago I took 5 days off and went to the Polish mountain rage called Karkonosze. If you’re not Polish you probably have never heard about.

Some people visit it on annual basis and I think there is a certain charm about it. I spent there few holidays with my parents when I was little and I ... Read more

Königssee: A Marvelous One Day Hike

Königssee: A Marvelous One Day Hike
This was an awesome conclusion of my trekking spring: a one day hike in the German Alps with my friend. Needless to say the weather was marvelous, however, not everything went as smoothly as we planed. The start was pretty comfortable with excellent German facilities namely: parking lot WITH coins exchange (!) and ATM (!) on site! This is only possible in Germany, as far as I’m concerned. Mythical German organization appeared ... Read more

Music and Culture in Limerick: Tour Ireland
There is no better way to visit the city as with a local. I have never been to Limerick so I’ve decided to ask for some guidelines a local company.
