Memories from Scotland

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…

Reflections on 2016 and a look forward

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. Work I…

One week in Senj, Croatia

One week in Senj, Croatia

Just about two weeks ago my wife 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.

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

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…
