Kalinowszczyzna - od Motoru do kirkutu
The winding streets of the Kalinowszczyzna district have probably never seemed inviting. Pavilions on Kleeberga Street, adorned with large format banners saying "Pawn Shop", "Krav Maga", hair salon "Pamela", marked w
Leopolis / Miasto Lwów - pt. 2
We had our second breakfast in Khinkalnya. Maybe khachapuri with maconi is not a very extensive breakfast option, but it provided us with energy to commence the day. We had clear goals - to buy tram tickets and gifts for our family and friends. After paying the bill
Mekka artystów - Kazimierz Dolny - Mecca of Artists
On Saturday I travelled with J. to Kazimierz Dolny. The road from Lublin takes about an hour, a little longer if you drive by bus. This small town with just over 3 thousand inhabitants boasts an impressive history and equally rich Renaissance ar
Tak samo jak kraj można podzielić na Polskę A i Polskę B, również Lublin ma swój "Lublin B" - wschodnie, post-industrialne dzielnice. Jak głosi legenda, zamieszkane przez troglodytów w sportowych ubraniach. Ludzie, którzy tam nie mieszkają, rzadko zapuszczają się w te okolice. Tam po prostu nie ma
Babcia mojej dziewczyny mieszka w Lubartowie. Robi fantastyczne pierogi w ilościach hurtowych i podróżuje kiedy tylko pozwala jej na to zdrowie - od Warszawy po Zurich, korzystając z przysługujących jej w tym wieku zniżek. Dość często ją odwiedzamy. Busy do Lubartowa odjeżdżają z dworca w Lublinie

Camping "De Oude Wilg"
The orchard where the campsite is located, looked exceptional in the sunset light. Campsite run by a Romanian-Dutch marriage has everything one could dream of: electricity, toilets, showers and a well-equipped kitchen. In the common areas there were instructions in E
Thursday, July 5th, was the last day of our trip to Romania. In the morning we left the campsite in Cârţa (about which I'll write next time) and went south. Our goal was one of the most picturesque and highest roads in Europe - the Transfăgărășan.

Fortress Monasteries/Kościoły warowne
Many peoples passed through medieval Transylvania, or Ardeal (from Latin "ultra silvam" or Hungarian "Erdő-elve" - on the other side of the woods): Pannonian Avars, Slavs, Bulgarians, Székelys. It was quite a wild land, attacked in the
We slept very well that night, although the temperature fell to 3 °C in the morning. The cacophony of Romanian folk music coming from a container transformed to a workshop effectively chased out the scraps of sleepiness. We ate breakfast, consisting of bread, canned meat, tomatoes and handmade chee
Romania For Beginners #3 - higher Apuseni / Rumunia dla początkujących #3 - wyżej w górach Apuseni
That day I got up after 7 a.m. The Czechs from Gumbalkan finally fell asleep. The bonfires have burnt out and empty bottles of beer and Jägermeister have been lying on the tables and in the grass.

The road climbed upwards with sharp serpentine turns, and the change in pressure was clogging our ears. When we reached the top we made a turn into a rocky path. We went to Glavoi - the aforementioned "wi
