<<< polska wersja >>> In the morning, I took the longest stroll this year. I passed along Hornsgatan, a busy street along the island of Södermalm, and wandered around the little park of Mariatorget, with another cup of coffee and a cardamom bun from Fabrique Stenunsbageri. Hornsgatan is a busy street, lined with shops and eateries that range […]

stockholm

<<< polska wersja >>> I did hear about the beauty of Stockholm every now and then, but never had a chance to see it with my own eyes. Warmer destinations seemed always more appropriate, and I generally prefer to cross the oceans instead of flying above the dark waters of the Baltic sea. Last weekend though, I had little […]

<<< polska wersja >>> The name ‘Stockholm’ translates basically to ‘log+island’. It derives from the legend of the Vikings setting off a log, hoping it would stop at the best place to build a new city (it reached the island of today’s Gamla Stan, and didn’t move an inch further).

Those gorgeous gentlemen write about mens […]

My ego nicely massaged, I paid him 20 dollars […]

<<< polska wersja >>> Peru blew my mind, as simple as that. The more I saw and learned, the more I was inspired to keep exploring. It’s easy to skim through the main historical sites and continue on to Bolivia or Ecuador, but digging in the rich Peruvian past, culture and nature (and food, obvio) proved very rewarding. Here are […]

s'more

<<< polska wersja >>> Some days are just not as good as others. Even my general naivete and enthusiasm dry out every now and then, and I start looking for some simple mood fixers. And what did I learn yesterday? August 10th is a national s’more day in USA. Grrreat! S’mores are a scout camping treat, […]
