EN/PL Problems of endangered species in the Amazon or in Papua New Guinea don’t end with fauna and flora. Languages and dialects die out every day, their extent shrinking rapidly and their users passing away. Every time it happens, a culture disappears. In my family, I am from the first generation that doesn’t understand chachlacki. It’s […]

Daniel Silva Yoshisato Trujillo Totora2

EN/PL When I was living in Lima, I contacted Daniel Silva, a Peruvian photographer who won the World Press Photo in the category of Sports Feature in 2004. I was curious about his work, and his approach to Peruvian issues in his projects. We had a long chat, and he told me about the responsibility and power of photography, […]

<<< polska wersja >>> There’s something about making coffee in the camp fire in the morning. Kookaburras go crazy up in the bush, the air is fresh and salty from the ocean nearby, and coffee is boiling in the pot. If there’s anything better, it would be making dinner in the campfire, but it’s another story. So […]

<<< polska wersja >>> We were running late. Earlier that morning, instead of packing under the first rays of sun, I had gone for a run, and took a tad too long. Tommy’s foot was shaking slightly when I was having my post-run chocolate milk, and then he started throwing snorkelling masks, bags of almonds, blankets, pillows, […]

<<< polska wersja >>> A year ago everyone in Warsaw got excited: the Polish edition of National Geographic mentioned its river beaches in the ranking for the best urban beaches in the world. Along Sydney, Paris and Cape Town, people kept saying. Puh-lease! As much as I like Warsaw, Sydney seems a bit out of the Polish […]


<<< polska wersja >>> Brenno, one of Tommy’s more peculiar friends, kept insisting we came up to Palm Beach to visit from Sydney. Apparently, he was staying at his family’s summer house, and there was plenty of space for all of us, and, as we were soon to learn, several disgusting spiders. So we packed up Tommy’s […]


<<< polska wersja >>> Who’d cook, if you’re in Sydney only for a few weeks? We’re no food experts, but we’re no cooks either, and eating out is one of my favourite pastimes. As a result of all those reasons, we tried a lot of restaurants, cafes and eateries all over Sydney. Here’s where we had our favourite […]


<<< polska wersja >>> Old European cities often boast with their centres being clearly designated, often pleasantly geometrical and organising the rest of the place neatly. Sydney, on the other hand, was nothing like that. Over several weeks I spent in there, I still felt like I hardly got to know the place. It feels enormous. Its […]

<<< polska wersja >>> In the morning, I took the longest stroll this year. I passed along Hornsgatan, a bustling avenue 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 […]
