Toruńska Ustawa Krajobrazowa (TUK)

Every time I pass this building – which is often because it’s a minute walk from my house, plus I used to pass it twice a day on my way to and from middle school – it hurts. It hurts to look at it, to see it, to catch a glimpse of it with theContinue reading “Toruńska Ustawa Krajobrazowa (TUK)”

Riviera Toruń

There’s a place in Toruń that always stuns me whenever I go by it. It’s a block of flats in Bartkiewiczowny Street, in the Koniuchy district (sort of). It has an official address – one consisting of the street name and some numbers – but I call it differently. I call it Riviera. In myContinue reading “Riviera Toruń”

The coolest place in Warsaw

What you’re about to see is way beyond coolness. It’s a PRL design aficionado’s paradise and just the perfect spot if you want to grab an iced coffee and chill in the shade for a bit. In front of you there’s parked cars and a road, but beyond that there’s the very big Park SkaryszewskiContinue reading “The coolest place in Warsaw”

Greetings from Warsaw; (not) the greatest tragedy

Pardon me for not providing any pictures, but I have a very good excuse. My phone got soaked on Sunday afternoon (maybe it was tired of the sun, everyone wants a cold water dip on a hot summer day) and since 10pm on that day it’s been non-functioning. I took about 4 photos during myContinue reading “Greetings from Warsaw; (not) the greatest tragedy”

Some photos from Stocznia Gdanska [Gdansk Shipyard]

A week ago, March 6th, I went to Gdansk for the first time in a long time. And I visited the Gdansk Shipyard for the first time in my life. You can now tour the area where Lech Walesa and Anna Walentynowicz worked in the 1970s and set up Solidarnosc following the new Kaiser ShipyardContinue reading “Some photos from Stocznia Gdanska [Gdansk Shipyard]”

Remembering my last week pre-pandemic

It’s been almost a year since all normal activities stopped in Edinburgh because of covid… and I sort of remember the first days when I started cutting out my outings, although I still went out relatively frequently – I went to Tesco once a day to get some fresh vegetables (I remember I was intoContinue reading “Remembering my last week pre-pandemic”

Climbing Mount Komorebi – 3 screenshots

My views have SO DROPPED lately, there’s barely anyone here! So, to start off the month right, I’ll post three screenshots from Mount Komorebi. Precisely three. However, I find them screenshots of high quality, as they gorgeously present the gorgeousness of Mount Komorebi and its snowy environs. I took them while sending the Ito familyContinue reading “Climbing Mount Komorebi – 3 screenshots”

Komercjalizacja harcerstwa

Serce mnie boli, że Dzień Myśli Braterskiej (World Thinking Day, 22 lutego) się skomercjalizował. Widać to dobitnie w newsletterze (który będę nazywać “biuletynem”), który dziś rano wylądował w mojej skrzynce mailowej. Nadawcą jest Składnica Harcerska ZHP 4 Żywioły. W mailu “druhowie” ze Składnicy napisali: Już na horyzoncie Dzień Myśli Braterskiej,to wyjątkowe święto przyjaźni.W taki dzień wartoContinue reading “Komercjalizacja harcerstwa”
