Dancing with stars? No, thanks.

Dancing with stars? No, thanks.
I have a confession to make: I have never been a good dancer. In fact, dancing is not my favorite activity and I rarely do it. Normally people like dancing as a sort of pleasant activity that helps you to deal with stress. But not me! When I think about going out and dance….well, that’s actually the last thing I would consider a relaxing activity. It was always difficult to go on and dance in front of the others. And ...

Half marathon done! Full marathon to go!

Half marathon done! Full marathon to go!
I have never thought I will write this: I completed a half marathon! And I feel great abut it. It’s not that it was always my dream or something. At some point my regular running has naturally turned into a challenge. I spent 3 months on training with large gaps in between, I must admit. But today here I am: I have officially joined a club of runners. What is the story here? Well, it all starts and ends with travels here! And ... Read more

Porta Posnania

Porta Posnania
This is a very particular museum. It has been recently opened to public and it has already gained a ‘must see’ label. I have heard enough enthusiastic comments on it to plan a visit as soon as possible. Just last week I hosted few Italian friends and it seemed a perfect excuse to finally go there. Due to heavy rain and cold weather it was an awesome idea to spend our afternoon. What this is all about? Porta ... Read more

Jeżyce: Art Nouveau

Jeżyce: Art Nouveau
Architecture in Poznan is far from trivial. Despite the devastating World War II there is number of interesting buildings spread throughout the city. My favorite style of the city houses is art nouveau found in one of the city districts: Jeżyce. Not as magnificent as buildings in Barcelona, Paris or Brussels it is still fascinating to walk around this area and know the history behind it. It all started with a flood in 1888 which, ...

Book Review: The Trouble I’ve Seen

Book Review: The Trouble I’ve Seen
It’s the middle of the summer and a book like this is far from any holiday literature. It’s not light. It’s not optimistic. But it’s worthy to read. By all means! Here is my review with few details to encourage you to read it. Reading it is a real travel: back in time and space.  The Trouble I’ve Seen Few weeks ago I finished reading another book sent by Eland Publishing House. This time it was a book ... Read more

Food Market

Food Market
There are few food markets in the city: Rynek Wielkopolski, Jeżycki, Wildecki, Plac Bernardyński and few others. A common characteristics is their names impossible to pronounce. The idea behind is pretty straightforward: local producers come to the market and in a dedicated space they can sell their products. People of Poznan use this opportunity every day. The quality of products is excellent, everything is fresh and looks ... Read more

Quick Look At Poznan

Quick Look At Poznan
Writing about home city is challenging. It’s very difficult to find the right perspective. On the one hand, there are too many stories to tell, too many memories to share and just too many places to write about. On the other hand, local stories and excessive detailed description will not interest travelers nor tourists. So here is the thing: I will show you my city just as I do with my foreign friends who visit me here. ... Read more

Urbino: Palazzo Ducale

Urbino: Palazzo Ducale
This is the last post from Marche. But before we’ll say ‘good buy’ to her let me show you the real pearl of renaissance architecture: Palazzo Ducale. I can tell you that Giorgia from Marche Holiday was right: Urbino is all about renaissance and Palazzo Ducale is the best example to show you this. Light Palazzo Ducale dominates the city skyline: it is visible from Fortezza and from few squares throughout the ... Read more
