  • How to build a simple photo gallery with Astro

    I recently added a photo gallery to my site, and Astro is a perfect tool for this task. In this article, I'll show you how to build a photo gallery in a few simple steps.

  • Dark skies of Tenerife

    In my last trip to Tenerife, I've spent a few nights capturing the night sky. I promised in my previos story that I'll share more photos from that night, so here they are.

  • Highlights from a visit to Tenerife

    Last year in December, I had a chance to travel to Tenerife for about a week. It's my 3rd visit to this place, and I still find this place fascinating. I had no particular plans for this trip, so I just went with the flow and explored the island.


  • This blog is moving to Astro!

    For the last 4 years, Gatsby has been the engine behind this blog. But from today onwards, you're browsing a page built with Astro, a web framework that powers fast content sites. Here's why I decided to move away from Gatsby and what I like about Astro.

  • A summer trip to Windermere, Lake District

    Earlier in August, I had the pleasure of spending a week-long vacation in Windermere. With group of friends we've enjoyed time off, exploring this area of Lake District. It was a relaxing break and an opportunity to visit some new places.

  • Peak District Highlights

    While organising my photos library, I found some photos from a trip to Peak District I did some time ago last year. I realised I never published them, and since I immensely enjoyed the views there, I hope you may too.

  • 7 things to see on The Seven Sisters Walk

    The Seven Sisters Walk in Sussex is one of the most picturesque ones you can find near London. It stretches from Seaford to Eastbourne, traversing a spectacular coastal path that offers magnificent views of the chalk sea cliffs on the English Channel coast.

  • A Trip to Cheddar Gorge

    A week ago, with a group of hiking friends, we went for a short getaway to Cheddar Gorge. This photo story is a record from a delightful weekend we spent there, visiting the gorge and some areas around.

  • Dorset and Devon

    Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to spend a few days travelling around the southwest of England. I'd been awaiting this trip for quite some time, as it was the first getaway for this season.

  • Wendover Woods Hike

    Last weekend, Sunday, I strolled on yet another casual hike hosted by the Outdooraholics group. Wandering through the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty offered an experience of surrounding woodlands and some great, panoramic views from the hills.


  • Highlights from India

    I recently had the opportunity to visit India for two weeks in October. It was my first time travelling to Asia. I didn't know what to expect, but I was excited to explore a new country, experience new things and visit new places.

  • Richmond Park Photowalk

    Richmond Park is one of my favourite places in London. And it's funny when you think about it because when you're there, you feel like you're actually far away from the big city.

  • Hampta Pass Trek

    Last month, in October, I visited India for the first time. One of the main highlights of this journey was a 4-day long trek in Himalayas Mountains on the trail called Hampta Pass.

  • Hiking Eridge and Harrisons's Rocks

    Summer is not officially over yet, and I've managed to salvage last sunny weekend to again join Outdooraholics for another hike. Navigating paths at the border of East Sussex and Kent counties, I enjoyed the green and calm atmosphere of woods and stunning crags of Harrison's Rocks.

  • The Seven Sisters Hike

    Seeing rain predictions for upcoming days, I feared of possibility that the last warm weekend of summer was just passing by! So, almost at the last minute joined the Seven Sister hike on the sunny, southern coast of Britain.

  • Hiking the Rolling Hills of Hertfordshire

    Just a week later, after my last hike, I joined another one with the Outdooraholics group. This time the hike called for exploration of Hertfordshire: a walk through the western area of Hitchin and the North Easterly ridge of Chiltern Hill.

  • Hiking Sussex Weald, Ardingly Reservoir and the Ouse Valley viaduct

    This weekend, on Saturday, I had a chance to enjoy another hike with the Outdooraholics group. This time explored West Sussex, walking through some woods, a few gentle hills and passing under Ouse Valley Viaduct. It was a pleasant and relaxing experience on this beautiful summer day.

  • Iceland Highlights - Part Five

    With this tempo of updates, I will probably not finish my Iceland series soon. But I keep trying. In this part, I cover the next part of the trip around Iceland's Ring Road, driving further east, visiting beautiful beaches, a Viking village, a glacier lagoon and more stunning views.

  • Sunset and sunrise at the Beacons Horseshoe

    Only a few weeks later, after my long hike in Brecon Beacons Mountains, I returned to the same mountains visiting the most spectacular parts, known as the Beacons Horseshoe.

  • Hiking in Brecon Beacons Mountains

    At the beginning of June (the long weekend of Queen's Platinum Jubilee), I left London for a 4-day hiking excursion at Brecon Beacons Mountains in Wales. I planned to hike parts of The Beacons Way - a long-distance walking path running the length of the Brecon Beacons National Park. I didn't have enough time to cover the entire distance, but it was still an exciting journey.

  • Spring training update

    I can finally feel that I'm breaking free from the misery mixture of being unmotivated, lazy and just feeling low. It is still early, only roughly two months of training, but I can already feel some changes.

  • Iceland Highlights - Part Four

    Continuing my Iceland series, I'm ready to share the next part of the journey from my travel. We continue east along Ring Road, visiting some cliffs where Puffins are nesting and then some more mountains and glaciers views.

  • Iceland Highlights - Part Three

    Welcome to the third part of my Iceland highlights. This blogpost series is a recap of my trip from the summer of 2021. We continue along the south coast road visiting more beautiful waterfalls, some glaciers, and a crashed plane in this particular part.

  • Iceland Highlights - Part Two

    I started last month with a review of my photos from the previous year's Iceland trip, and I've shared some bits from the first days of the travel highlighting the famous Golden Circle route. But Iceland is so much more. Our journey was planned often on the go, driven by the exciting spots along the Ring Road and the booked accommodation.

  • My Iceland Highlights - Part One

    I wrote and published earlier two photo stories from my trip to Iceland in 2021. Still, they were only about Fagradalsfjall volcano, and I have so much more to share from that travel.

  • The Long Man of Wilmington hike

    Going for a countryside walk on weekend is a great way to spend time. This Saturday I went for another group hike, this time from Berwick to Eastbourne, with the highlight of visiting The Long Man of Wilmington a human figure carved on the slopes of Windover Hill near Wilmington, East Sussex, England.

  • Leith Hill hike

    On Easter Sunday, I spent some quality time enjoying a bit challenging yet very rewarding hike in the area of Leith Hill in Surrey. The weather was fantastic, and I had some opportunities to take some photos along the way.

  • How to access Remix route data in other routes

    Nested routes are a neat concept of Remix framework. The idea is that segments of the URL path of the applications define the layouts and the data dependency of those layouts. In many use cases, your view could be a composition of multiple route levels, and you may end up with the need to access the data that was fetched in one of your parent (or child) routes.

  • Work from home

    The erosion of the current working model was already happening slowly over the last decade. Still, the previous years of COVID-related lockdowns strongly accelerated the process. I'd argue this was a positive change!

  • Updates, updates

    It has been almost six months since the last update. That's quite a long time. Especially for someone who claims to tell stories! I won't seek excuses to explain that. I was definitely lacking some engagement, creativity and inspiration. Some ongoing personal changes also contributed to this.


  • Clarity

    I went for a run today, dragging my ass from sofa, out through the door on the evening streets of Hamburg. My motivation was low, my energy was low and I struggled to complete simple and familiar 5km loop route I often used to do here.

  • Return to the Fagradalsfjall volcano

    If you've read my previous story about the Fagradalsfjall volcano you know that I didn't have much luck witnessing actual eruption. But the hike was a great experience anyway, so two weeks later, I've returned to the same place, took a slightly different path and went on planning to see the eruption.

  • Fagradalsfjall volcano and the lava fields of Geldingadalir

    The Fagradalsfjall volcano was one of the key points of my trip to Iceland. I've visited the site twice, in the beginning, and towards the end of my journey. While I almost didn't see the eruption, I enjoyed the surreal landscape quite a lot. This photo story is a record of the hike.

  • Wake up!

    It has been a long (winter) hibernation season. Way too long for me. My blog was stagnant for eight months, and I was stuck too. Not much happened, not much changed.


  • Moin, moin Hamburg!

    It was a bit spontaneous decision, it happened quickly, it took almost 3 months of efforts, but here we are. We've finally completed our move to Hamburg, Germany!

  • One week in Portugal

    In the middle of March 2019, we’ve paid a short visit to Portugal, visiting Lisbon, Porto, and some places along the way. This photo story is a short memory of this travel.

  • Memories from Scotland

    In October 2018, we went for a short trip to Scotland. It was our first visit there, and we were eager to find out what it's gonna be like...

  • COVID-19 f****d everything

    It's not an understatement to say, that the life of every human on earth was affected by the Coronavirus pandemic... COVID-19 fucked our comfortable life bubble.

  • Growing plants underground in London

    Who would have thought about the idea of growing plans deep underground? Well, maybe in some post-apocalyptic movie, but in real life, that doesn't seem straightforward, right?

  • Hammersmith Bridge sunrise and photowalk

    I was dying to see some good weather, but in February this year was quite miserable. There was a lot of rain and cloudy mornings, so I never had a good chance to go out for some photography challenges.

  • A weekend in Cambridge

    As I moved to the UK only a few years ago, everything around is fresh and new. Lucky to have friends in Cambridge, we've visited them for a weekend and took the opportunity to see this lovely British city.

  • Beating January blues

    We all know how it starts. Beginning of the year, we start the month with a head full of ideas and a heard full of hope. And then live gets us.

  • It's null until you ship it

    This is exactly the status of my blog. It's not existing for anyone, even though it has been under work for the last couple of weeks.


  • Running towards the changes

    This year was truly a setback to me. In the beginning, I grappled with the injury that I carried even from the previous season. Running was always an afterthought, and I've found enough excuses to skip way too many training runs. But this is going to change.

  • Hello World Blog

    Who starts a blog in 2019? Is it still a thing worth doing? Who will even read this? What platform should I use? What about should I write?


  • Wrapping up 2018

    Again, the time has come to sit down and look back into the past year. It's almost end of a busy, little dull year of 2018. If you're following my blog, please sit down and revisit with me the last 12 months of my life.

  • Magical sunrise at Richmond Park, London

    Early Sunday last week I went for a long run as one of the final training runs before the upcoming marathon. I ran through the Richmond Park and the sunrise I've witnessed left me stunned. It was one of the most beautiful scenes I've ever seen.

  • Post summer summary

    I didn't post any updates lately. Two months passed without a post. Sorry about that. It feels like I've been out of focus for some time. Summer's ended, and I'm trying to fix that now.

  • Hiking on Tenerife: Cruz del Carmen in Anaga Mountains

    Anaga Mountains found on the northeastern side of Tenerife offer an entirely different environment than the rest of the island. Green, humid forest, the variety of plants and trees makes them an excellent area for hiking and exploration. One of my last days on Tenerife I went for a long hike starting from a small village Cruz del Carmen.

  • Hiking on Tenerife: Arona to Roque del Conde to Roque de los Brezos and back

    In the area of Arona, there are many distinct mountains. They each reach up to 1000 meters high, but their height makes a big impression because you can observe them almost from the sea level. So one afternoon I've decided to go for a hike to a nearby mountain with quite interesting, flat top.

  • Running on Tenerife: Adeje to Montaña Carrasco and back

    If you, like me, came to Tenerife to seek challenging trails, hard rocks, curvy paths and beautiful views you won't be disappointed. Today I present first from many run/hikes runs I'm covering during my short summer break on Tenerife.

  • May training report and updates

    May is gone, and with lots of sunny, warm days we're officially entering summer period. It looks like it will be a hot one. As usual, I'm publishing my monthly summary for the past month. Enjoy.

  • Monthly update, April 2018

    It was an interesting month. It passed by quickly though, like other months too. I get the feeling that the time is accelerating. Or maybe its because we live busy lives, not always focus on what's essential for us.

  • Next challenge: Munich Marathon 2018

    Feeling a little buzzed and inspired from watching the runners on the London's streets, I've decided to challenge myself. I've signed for Munich Marathon!

  • Photographing the 2018 London Marathon

    The time went by so fast, and I didn't realize it was almost a year since the last event. This year the Virgin Money London Marathon was set on 22 April 2018. I wasn't watching the date, so almost by accident, I found out that it will happen on the last Sunday. Of course, I couldn't miss it.

  • Spring bottom bounce, March 2018

    Closing this month with small amounts of updates.

  • Winter training, February 2018

    February is the shortest month in a year, will this be a brief update then? Lets find out.

  • Training into the unknown - beginning 2018

    The first month of January went pretty fast. Here's some short report from it.

  • 2017 - a year in review

    It has become my tradition to spend couple hours by the end of a year and write a yearly review post. I'm doing that since last couple years. Today I'm writing this on retrospection of 2017. I invite you to read my share of struggles and moments of joy, successes & failures, ups, and downs.


  • Last monthly update this year, December 2017

    Last days of December and year 2017 are through. Follow me on this monthly update before starting a countdown to the beginning of 2018!

  • Monthly update, November 2017

    In the beginning of the last month of 2017, I'm writing a short summary of November to check and update about what's going on in my life.

  • Short monthly update, October 2017

    Autumn is already there and just two months left in this year. As usual, although not very regularly I sit down to reflect on past month. Follow me.

  • Visiting England's South Coast

    At the turn of September and October, I took few days of vacation and together with N. we've spent three days on the southern coast of UK. In this post, you can find a collection of memories from places we've visited.

  • Running Magurski Ultramaraton

    It's been already three weeks since the event and I don't want my memories to fade away. On 19th of August, 2017 I've attempted to run and finished 58km route of Magurski Ultramaraton in Kępna, Poland. I'm proud of this accomplishment and I want to share this experience with you.

  • Slow and low July 2017

    Summer in London is different than in Poland - I guess, it's more bearable. Not so much extreme weather changes, not freaking hot, which is good for living in the city. This month passed quickly, again. Let's look into July in my quick, monthly retrospective.

  • Can't believe it is already summer, June 2017

    Just 2 days ago I went for a run on a warm and sunny afternoon and this thought struck me. It's already July and that means we're already in the 2nd half of the year. Amazing, how the time flies. If you care enough about what I do and think, stay with me for my monthly update.

  • Stepping up the game, May 2017

    It is the first week of June 2017 and that means it's time to write my monthly review again. May was again busy month (tell me which wasn't) but I'm actually quite happy with everything that's happened and the progress I've made.

  • Box Hill hike in Surrey

    Last weekend on sunny Sunday, together with some friends, we went for our first hike in London's neighbourhood. The weather was pleasant and this moderate length hike was very enjoyable.

  • Photographing the 2017 London Marathon

    The 2017 London Marathon was one of my first attempt to street & event photography in London. I didn't set many expectations about the outcome as I haven't done much of this kind of shoots in the past. So instead, I've turned my mindset towards exploration and fun.

  • Recovery month, March 2017

    I've got some delay with publishing this. Somehow feel disconnected with blogging recently and just this weekend got finally time on sunny, Saturday morning to sit quietly, think back and write about past month.

  • A month in review, February 2017

    A second month already almost behind me. Time flew fast, there wasn't much happening, though. Again, a little too much work and stress and not enough of perseverance...

  • Blog updates: server and HTTPS

    Short update about my blog. As you may have already noticed the base URL has changed. I wanted to do this for a few months already, but it required some preparation I've postponed this multiple time. But last weekend I've finally turned around and did it.

  • A month in review, January 2017

    As time pass by, already the first month of 2017 is done. Here is my short look back into what was happening and how did I do this time. Also, a bright glimpse of the future.

  • Notes from Magento 2 Migration meetup

    Yesterday I’ve joined my first meetup this year, organized by [London Magento Meetup Group][link-meetup] at DotMailer office. The location and venue were fantastic. There was pizza, polish beer and many people to talk. Below you’ll find a short summary of my notes and thoughts from the meeting.

  • A peek into first week of 2017

    The first week of 2017 passed quite quickly. Given some undistracted time, I can take a look at the time literally from the 10000ft perspective, as I'm now flying to Hamburg. So while it looks like that the new year is starting quite busy, let's step back and reflect on that.


  • Reflections on 2016 and a look forward

    Can't believe it's been another year. This one was busy and quick. Even though a lot happened somehow I feel like I've missed it. This is almost the last day of 2016 and I sit here now, in London and look back to reflect on what happened, what did I achieve and what I can do better in 2017.

  • Without a word, next month passes by

    It feels like it was just a blink of an eye, yet another month just passed. I've promised more frequent updates but I still don't have enough time to do that.

  • The black protest

    This is quite unusual for my blog, to actually write about current topics. But I was thinking about it and I guess... every opinion matters. So do mine, so do yours.

  • About that silence...

    You've probably noticed that I've been silent for about last month... If you waited for another _reading list_ episode - sorry, I'll return to posting from October. There were many things going on and even more will come.

  • Reading list #11

    Hello. It's Friday evening and I've got another reading list compiled for your pleasure. Enjoy dozens of interesting and inspiring articles and resources.

  • Reading list #10 - Summer coding edition

    Lets get rolling ahead of weekend. This time lots of React & Redux and Rails articles to read. Enjoy summer & enjoy my 10th reading list.

  • Catching the light

    It was 8 PM, the day before when I’ve got the crazy idea of going for a trip to photograph the sunrise from the top of Babia Góra. I would later see, that clouds almost entirely covered the peak and no sun for me, but it was one of best hikes I've ever had.

  • One week in Senj, Croatia

    Just about two weeks ago N. and I made a quick choice to pack our stuff and go for one week to Croatia. We picked some location, booked apartment via Airbnb, got into a car and departed. Our plan was not a full blown vacation, but rather some "digital nomad" style of work and relax. We were not disappointed.

  • Reading list #9 - Staying up to date with technology

    It was a busy time for me. Lot of work, some training, traveling and usual stuff. But I didn't forget you. So let's jump quickly to my next reading list.

  • Reading list #8 - Summer break

    After a little longer break, here is my next reading list. Last week I've spent in Croatia, working remotely, relaxing on the seaside and enjoying some offline time therefore no reading list was published. But this time I've got bigger package for you.

  • Reading list #7 - Rainy Sunday edition

    It's Sunday and it's raining. Perfect day just to grab cup of coffee, wear warm socks, sit in comfortable chair and enjoy reading. This week I've collected quite large set of interesting topics, so feel free to take a look and start reading!

  • Happy to be there

    First 10 days of July passed and I feel I need to report some of the details about the progress for last couple weeks. Summer is fully here. Days are quite long, weather's not bad, things are rolling.

  • Reading list #6

    This time a little bit late and also somewhat short. To be honest, I didn't have time to fully read all articles from last week. So here is a short one.

  • Reading list #5 - Rails 5 released!

    Lots of articles to read in this week. The biggest announcement was for me the 5.0 release of Ruby on Rails! But, of course there is more for your pleasure.

  • Keeping the fire burning

    Sometimes it's easy to loose the focus. I get it all the time. One week is great, then next one feels like a two steps back. Sometimes good, sometimes hard. What is important, is to keep pushing forward.

  • Reading list #4

    Next weekend, next reading list. This time again, lots of links related to Javascript. Enjoy!

  • Run in a park, score 5k

    Friday afternoon my buddy wrote on Facebook that he's gonna participate in the 5K Parkrun. Since I've never taken a part in it, I've thought I'll give it a shot. I've also never participated in a 5K race, so it was a good challenge as well.

  • Reading list #3 - Carry a Notebook

    My 3rd edition of the reading list links. Each weak I post some notable links to blog posts & articles, mostly related to development, but not only...

  • Back on track in June

    Damn, it's been more than a month since I've wrote about running. To be honest, it wasn't very intense. Only couple of short runs and one longer run trip. But this month I'm finally starting to feel it.

  • Reading list #2 - jQuery 3.0 Released!

    Another set of notable articles from this week. Biggest news, I guess is the announcement of jQuery 3. If you don't need to support older IE then I recommend looking into it.

  • Introducing reading lists

    There are lots of new things appearing every day. New articles, libraries, frameworks, videos, products and more. I'm usually checking lots of them during my week. I'll try to collect them and publish it here for you. Enjoy!

  • Run to magic places

    Sometimes I'm just amazed how the same route looks and feels when you run it at a different time. Today, I went on the run in the evening, just about 1 hour before sunset. The photographers say that it's and golden hour.

  • First day of the spring

    I’m not exactly sure whether it was last day of winter or the first day of spring. But as usual, we’ve set for a run. Initially, we’ve actually planned to go somewhere else, but because of some unforeseen event day before, we’ve settled for a shorter route in Lasek Wolski.

  • Dirty dozen at Lasek Wolski

    Running this Sunday was all about mud, wet and slippery slopes. We started around 9:00 and traversed some nice trail paths in Lasek Wolski, small forest area in western part of Kraków. It was nice, technical run, mixed with a lot of sliding through mud and rain puddles.

  • Fighting my demons

    This entry will be different. It has been a long time struggle for me and all the time I thought that I’ve got this. That I have it under control and I’m making progress. But it’s not entirely true and here is why.

  • Turbacz w marcu

    Sobotniego poranka zrobiliśmy z Krzysztofem solidną trasę. Podejście z Koninek, przez Obidowiec zielonym i czerwonym szlakiem na na Turbacz. Zbieg przez Czoło Turbacza, także Zielonym.

  • Slow but steady, February winter edition

    Sometimes the journey is slow. Sometimes it’s just feels like you’re in the same place. If you’ve ever felt this way, then welcome. This month was just slow. I mean, it wasn’t nothing. There was lot of work, some training here and there but no big progress. Let’s take a look and see why

  • A journey to minimalism starts in January

    So, the first month of 2016 was dedicated to some cleanup, clutter reduction and simplifying. I’ve set a goal, to get rid of one thing for every day and today 31 days passed. Here are the results.

  • 2015 out, 2016 in

    Another year passed, another year starting. These 365 days are flowing very fast. Lots of things happened during the last year. I would like to share some stats about them, plus maybe give some look into the future.


  • Magic run

    There is always something special when reaching the summit. Doesn’t matter if it’s a rocky peak in a high mountain range or a small mound in the city. The reward is there, always. You just need to reach for it.

  • Running up this winter

    I don’t know why, but this season I was too lazy. I’ve only run occasionally, couple times per month (if any). Should improve that maybe during this winter. But from time to time, anyway I always enjoy a break from the city.

  • Thought from Smashing Conference Barcelona 2015

    Another year, another conf! This time, I’ve got the chance to visit Barcelona! It wasn’t that cold yet so besides of enjoying 2 days of conference talks, we’ve also done a little bit of sightseeing.

  • My month in review: August 2015

    Phew, this was busy month. It’s not even an end yet – still have one day to go – but I have to write this summary anyway. I doubt it will change that much tomorrow. So, lets get through.

  • Change

    Things are changing. I already see some progress. I wake up earlier and have more energy. My tasks are getting organized better and I am able to finish it faster.

  • 2x Śnieżka, edycja 2015

    Drugi raz pojawiłem się na starcie biegu “3x Śnieżka = 1x Mount Blanc”. Kilka miesięcy temu w głowie krążyły mi jeszcze przelotne myśli aby wystartować na dystansie ultra, ale oczywiście za mała ilość treningów skłoniła mnie do podjęcia krótszego wyzwania.

  • HafenCity photowalk

    To experience something new, I’ve posted a story on Medium. Feel free to check it out.

  • Marzec 2015 - raport i przemyślenia

    Z lekkim poślizgiem postaram się przeanalizować poprzedni miesiąc. Z końcówką lutego zacząłem w miarę regularne treningi i marzec był pierwszym miesiącem, w którym udało mi się to całkiem dobrze. A więc do dzieła.

  • Your time is limited...

    Dear friends, this are one of the most powerful words I’ve ever heard. This is, of course, quote from famous Steve Jobs’ “Stay hungry, stay foolish” speech at Stanford university.

  • Biegowe plany na 2015

    Na przestrzeni lutego zacząłem powoli wracać do biegania. Na razie było to dosyć nieregularnie i chyba całkiem bez celu. Nastał marzec, zima na razie odeszła a ja biegam trochę częściej.

  • Today is better than tomorrow

    We all have this. Put things aside, thinking tomorrow or someday. Just not now, not today. I say: Tomorrow I’ll go to gym. Next week I’ll finally start running again. I’ll update my blog when it will be ready…

  • Resolving resolutions

    One year ago I wrote about some of my resolutions for the upcoming 2014. Even though it seems like everyone is bashing new years resolutions, we may call them differently but we all have them. So last year I posted here four points. Let’s see how I’ve got them.


  • Streets of Hamburg

    So my last post was about running in Hamburg. But I also did some walking. Here are some interesting places and moments I’ve captured on a short walk near Alster and city center. Enjoy.

  • Hamburger run

    Po prawie miesięcznej przerwie udało mi się znów trochę pobiegać. Nie był to jakoś specjalnie długi bieg, ledwie niecałe 7km. Ale dla mnie miało to duże znaczenie. Z kilku powodów…

  • 2014 Beskidy Ultra Trail report

    Niestety nie wystartowałem w tegorocznej edycji Beskidy Ultra Trail. I choć złożyło się na to kilka powodów, ostatecznie jestem z tego mimo wszystko zadowolony. Udało mi się za to pojawić z aparatem na trasie wyścigu i zrobić kilka zdjęć uczestnikom. Okazało się to samo w sobie organizacyjnym wyzwaniem.

  • Latem na Maderę, czyli 2 tygodnie odpoczynku na wyspie wiecznej wiosny

    Wakacje 2014 spędziliśmy na Maderze. 14 dni odpoczynku, relaksu i spokoju. Przepiękne widoki, niebo, góry i chmury stwarzają tam wspaniałą atmosferę. Nie jest to idealne miejsce na urlop, jeśli ktoś preferuje leżenie na plaży i imprezy, ale może właśnie dlatego Madera bardzo przypadła nam do gustu.

  • Na Babią, po zachód słońca!

    W ostatni weekend, sobotę, 7. czerwca postanowiłem się wybrać na Babią Górę fotografować zachód słońca. Dawno temu miałem okazję być tam ze znajomymi na wschodzie, ale nie udało mi się jeszcze zobaczyć schyłku dnia.

  • Off we go, czyli Śnieżka 2014

    W połowie maja miałem okazję spędzić kilka dni we Wrocławiu. N. coachowała na Rails Girls Wrocław, a ja wykorzystałem wolną sobotę, żeby wybrać się w Karkonosze. Jeszcze nigdy wcześniej nie byłem w tamtych okolicach, może poza zimowym pobytem w Pecu pod Śnieżką, prawie 6 lat temu.

  • Tydzień #3 - z Dusiołkiem w tle

    Upłynął już trzeci tydzień. I znów wszystko poszło dobrze. Może nie całkiem zgodnie z planem, bo pozwoliłem sobie na spore odstępstwa, ale za to było ciekawie i intensywnie.

  • Tydzień #2 za nami!

    Siedem dni szybko zleciało. Udało mi się wykonać zgodnie z planem wszystkie 5 treningów i jestem z tego całkiem zadowolony. Zapraszam do krótkiego podsumowania.

  • BUT - Tydzień #1, podsumowanie

    I wanted to write this since long time.

  • Przygotowania do BUT-a czas zacząć

    Za 23 tygodnie BUT90 – Beskidy Ultra Trail. To jeszcze nie setka. Ale kolejne wyzwanie. Po ostatnich doświadczeniach z Chudego Wawrzyńca, zamierzam się lepiej przygotować...

  • A humble visit to the Lake Bled

    Last week I was lucky to spent a couple of days in Slovenia. This short trip was very pleasant, calm and subtle experience. I really recommend to visit lake Bled and enjoy some quality time there.

  • Caballo Blanco

  • Thoughts on Smashing Conference, Oxford 2014

    Last week I’ve got wonderful opportunity to participate in Smashing Conference in Oxford. It was nice experience, fun trip with friends from creativestyle and I want to share some thoughts and observations from it.

  • Spring run #1

    Co prawda nie ma jeszcze kalendarzowej wiosny, ale pogoda kwalifikuje ten bieg do kategorii wiosennej. Korzystając z wolnego weekendu postanowiłem wybrać się wreszcie na trochę dłuższe wybieganie...

  • Hackathon Hack4good 0.5 w Krakowie

    Kilka dni temu, 7-9 lutego miałem okazję organizować hackathon #hack4good 0.5 w Krakowie. I tyle wam powiem ten event był fantastyczny! Chyba wszystko przerosło w nim moje oczekiwania. Odespałem już noce i odkopałem się z robotą, dlatego mam chwilę czasu, żeby podzielić się swoimi przemyśleniami na ten temat.

  • Running recap of 2013

    Since 2010 running has become an important part of my life and I couldn’t imagine myself without it. So, year 2013 has come to an end and I’d like to take a look back on the important events that happened to me during that time.

It was also a part of WebSummit conference in Dublin. The idea? Hack for charities, NGO organizations and help solve real world problems to make the world better.

  • Hello World Again?

    So I say hello again. With almost year break from blogging I finally decided to go back. I need this. I need my website as a basic platform of expression.


  • Where do you go to disappear?

    Everyone needs this. When things go bad, when things go great. We need this place. To contemplate, to catch, to be. We need this place and we will find it. It’s there. Almost. But we will get there. I will.

  • Relaunch

    After couple of months of idling, I finally decided to relaunch my blog again. Switching back from Tumblr to WordPress I won’t keep my old blog posts and resources since I don’t find them important. It was just random noise that doesn’t matter any more.
