Why pilgrimage is important?

Why pilgrimage is important?
Have you ever went on a pilgrimage? A single thought about it can make you laugh as most of our contemporary conceptions of religion and faith are far from what made people to pilgrimage few hundreds years ago. However, the statistics do not lie: since 10 years a number of pilgrims walking the Way of St. James in Spain (Camino de Santiago or simply camino) steadily increases. And you probably wonder why. Do you find overwhelmed ... Read more

Guest Post: Expedia

Guest Post: Expedia
Few months ago I got in touch with Alessandro from Blog di Viaggio run by Expedia and asked for an interview. And last week it went live. This interview is focused on the basic reasons of traveling and running a blog. It is in Italian so all people who speaks this language can read the full story here. The rest of you can visit their website and have a look at the pictures from around the world. I think that the main message of ... Read more

Ferrara seen and experienced through eyes of a participant of ... Read more

Dance Like There Is No Tomorrow

Dance Like There Is No Tomorrow
This year edition of Dancing Poznań is over. The last workshop took place last Saturday and I’m still thinking about it. How was it? – everybody asks. And I don’t know what to tell them. Seriously. There are so many words that describe how it was, starting with challenging, interesting, funny, hard, awesome … but none of these words describes it ALL. So, it looks like you need to read the whole story to know ... Read more

Travel with a blogger: Epicure & Culture

Travel with a blogger: Epicure & Culture
Holiday with a blogger is my recent idea. It is pretty simple: through a website of the project  ‘I love Ferrara’ you can book a week stay in Ferrara with me. I traveled a lot in last 10 years and I think this is the perfect time to share my experience with others. Twice a year – in September and in May – you can enjoy Italy at its best. Interested in details? Click here for the full story. The idea of such ... Read more

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
