VISITING BAHRAIN – ALL ROADS LEAD TO PETROLEUM MUSEUM

Sunset in Al Dar Islands in Bahrain, lost boat recovered

Visiting Bahrain was part of spontaneous ideas on the next travel destination. Whenever asked where I am going next, saying “Bahrain” seemed to be unexpected answer. Yet, I was so excited for discovering this new country, small – yet so different compared to Poland or India. But how come Bahrain? That was a nice story! Firstly, I started to play with the map. Thinking about new countries to visit, one where visas would not be a problem. And then I discovered online tools that can give you middle point locations between two cities on the Earth. You can test it...

SURPRISE PARTY – CREATING MOMENTS & UNFORGETTABLE SMILE

Surprise Party Gift

Sometimes unspoken to people around us, sometimes commonly known: many of us would love to receive a special birthday gift: surprise party. Although they are people who would not like to hear “Surpriseee!”, many of us would truly jump from the joy. Would you as well? Surprise parties have one key element in common: top secret factor. So one who dreams about it, would not ask for one, hoping deeply someone could read “her/his” mind. On the other hand, even if not on our bucket list – would it be just nice to be surrounded by people who care for...

NEW YEAR RESOLUTION OR CHRISTMAS PREPARATION – THE ART OF REMOVING WHAT IS UNNECESSARY

While removing things, less can also mean more.

Christmas is just behind the corner and soon after we will let 2019 go. I imagine many of us running around these days, last shopping lists, last items to prepare at home, a lot of cooking to be done for the family and friends. And in all of that – making sure that our home is shining, as it is a special time during the year. Surrounded by so many items, sometimes unnecessary, and gadgets makes it all more difficult for us. Especially now: in the era of consumptionism. Do we really need everything? And if maybe not, how to...

CHASING NORTHERN LIGHTS – ARCTIC CIRCLE IN TROMSØ, NORWAY

Bonfire under northern lights in Arctic Circle in Norway

Somehow it became part of our family’s traveling DNA: spontaneous travels, last moment changes or bookings. And maybe I would prefer a few more days for “knowing”, especially now when the family is bigger. However, I can’t complain here at all. As it always works out! No regrets nor disappointments. Just more adventures and fun. Packing last moment is part of our lifestyle too. Often…creative packing too! ? (that’s a story for another post…) For instance, just three weeks ago we were selecting our destination tickets on Friday night. Yes, for Saturday morning. Yes, including our little 4.5 months traveler....

CHASING LIFE MOMENTS – MY NEW JOURNEY

Chasing life moments in Mangalore, India

The most beautiful things in life are not things. They’re people and places and memories and pictures. They’re feelings and moments and smiles and laughter. Unknown This blog has been on my mind for a while now. And guess what… so focused on chasing life moments I struggled to make it happen, trying to expand what isn’t expandable: time, trying to go beyond daily 24 hours. Or maybe simply: I wasn’t ready yet? Maybe a few things had to happen before that, maybe a few thoughts had to evolve enough to let them fly further or maybe “time needs to...
