Life on Mars(a)

I don’t know how di it happen, but we are in Egypt again. Third time in my life, all inclusive. Second time in a year. Actually, I know what happened – in a pandemic world it was an easy destination, all inclusive package includes a fairy-tale reef, probably one of the best in this part […]

Returning home

And so we returned. There was a welcome committee at the airport, greeting us, tired after almost 24 hours of travel, stopover, timezone difference and temperature shift into coldness of autumn. It is cold and raining again! We got the keys to our apartment back and started to slowly unpack our stuff from cardboard boxes […]

New York City

I was afraid of New York City for many reasons. I was expecting a big, overwhelming city. I knew it will be superexpensive and we are budget travellers. I feared the sadness of the last stop on our journey before heading back home. Finally I have my personal reasons which I do not want to […]


I realized it is really September and it is the final countdown. Almost a year has passed since we left Poland. At the same time on the scale of experiences, feelings, knowledge this year was like five years. When I look at the map of our route I realize how much we did. At the […]

Tough love

Mexico is either fascinating or tiring to the point of thinking about leaving immediately. And then again I come across something so awesome that I want to stay. This has been happening over and over again. For the first time in this whole journey we have some health problems – fever, stuffy nose, pain in […]

Buenos dias!

– Can you hear the dentists? – Wojtek asked. Dentists are the insects which we could hear in Taman Negara and Bako National Parks in Malaysia. They make a special sound, very similar to the noise a dentist drill makes. We heard the “dentists” once again in Palenque, while visiting the ancient Mayan ruins. It […]

What a mess!

The heat and humidity hit us hard right after leaving the plane. Looks like our bodies adjusted back to dry climate and forgot how it was in South-East Asia. The boys complain but me and Wojtek were missing tropical weather. Cancun looks like a mass-tourism trap so we leave it as soon as possible on […]

Train to Chicago

We returned our second car in the beautiful town of Whitefish and loaded like camels (with all the camping gear we bought in the US on top of our backpacks) left for the train station. We decided that crossing the US on board of “Empire Builder” – an Amtrak train running along the Canadian border […]

Star Trek

Long ago, during one of long flights on a business trip, do not remeber if it was Mauritius, India or Australia, I watched a documentary on Star Trek and its creator – Gene Roddenberry. What struck me was his vision, clearly showing that humanity somehow overcame the struggles between nations and came out united to […]
