Day 25 Me: Come on. I thought we’d been through this. God: Oohh, let me sabotage your trip a little more. Me: What? No. No. Enough. God: But I’m having a blast! Come on, man, one last fail. One. Me (sighing): One, and then you stop. God: One, and then we’ll see. Me (chiding): God…. Continue Reading →
Day 24. Fun fact: In the tower of Kraków, a trumpeter opens a window every hour to play a tune to the city. Okay, it’s probably more than one trumpeter, but I like to think it’s just this one guy, utterly dedicated to his passion. Some of us have a cuckoo clock; Kraków has a trumpeter… Continue Reading →

There are many places on my bucket list (the whole world) and I try to focus on new places to visit as much as I can, but today I want to take a pause and think about a few of my favorite places in the world. Places I would go back to without a second… Continue Reading →
Hello fellow readers! Ready to talk about the book of the month of June? Here we go! One of the strange things about living in this world is that it is only now and then that one is quite sure one is going to live forever and ever and ever. -Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden
As I mentioned before, one thing I love to do when I travel is to find a nice spot where to spark my imagination and write. So here are my favourite European ones so far.
