Stuff your eyes with wonder

…he said, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories. — Ray Bradbury

So I’m back from Warsaw. It was unique. This time I saw also the other part of the river Vistula Praga Północ. Praga Północ is definitely an unbelievable destination to check out. I definitely recommend it! Praga Północ is located in the central part of the city, is one of the oldest districts.
The area is full of old buildings, streets, graffiti. My main reason to visit was to take photos of street art and was not disappointed and was surprised with the architecture of the old buildings. A lot of history standing right in front of you definitely worth a visit even better if you love photography.
Almost since its beginnings, Praga Północ has been thought of as a not entirely safe district, full of alcoholics and an ideal place for illegal trade. But a district is safe that there is no need for police patrols 😉

I want to stay as close to the edge

… as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can’t see from the center. — Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

I’m already looking forward to Warsaw… only 10 more days. This time I won’t be staying in a hotel, but I booked an apartment on Airbnb.

This time I have only one goal … try Zupa ogórkowa. We don’t know Zupa ogórkowa in Slovenia, at least I wouldn’t know. The acquaintance told me that I would probably find it in Bar Mleczny. And I’m always open to new suggestions 😉

See you at the end of April 😀

Traveling

it gives you home in thousand strange places, then leaves you a stranger in your own land. – Ibn Battuta

Now it’s official. I’m returning to Warsaw on April 10th. This time I booked an apartment near Charlotte Menora. So I’ll have the best breakfast near. This time I need to see the other side of the Vistula River – Stara Praga and Praga-Północ. I’m so happy to see Warsaw again 😀

Sometimes I dream

… about being a good father and a good husband. And sometimes it feels really close. But then other times it seems silly like it would ruin my whole life. And it’s not just a fear of commitment or that I’m incapable of caring or loving because… I can. It’s just that, if I’m totally honest with myself I think I’d rather die knowing that I was really good at something. That I had excelled in some way than that I’d just been in a nice, caring relationship. Before Sunrise – Quotes

p.s. btw this is me 😉

Dilemma

I sit in front of my computer and watch photos … what should I post this time? Ljubljana? Vienna? Paris? Warsaw?
I have a lot of problems with these posts. I post photos on Instagram, where I have two accounts; Facebook also has two accounts, WordPress … and sometimes I’m lost. I do not know where I posted something … stupid me.
Do you also have such problems?

And now also a brand new WordPress editor… I’m lost.

Polish cuisine

…was a slight disappointment for me.

Joke!!!

Of course, I like very much French cuisine and all their dishes. But Polish cuisine … is like the Slovene cuisine. Almost nothing new … maybe because of this I felt in Warsaw like at home.

Restaurant Stolica – a beautiful terrace, friendly staff and very very good food. I think it was one of the best duck I ate… except Manchons de canard pomme sautees.

again nothing new. It’s exactly like that Vienna steak or Dunajski šnicelj in Slovenia. But so much better and tastier. This is the best steak of kind that I ate. Normally I don’t eat Vienna steak in the restaurants. But in a month I go to Vienna, so… Restaurant Portretowa.

like Krof… although we are eaten donuts only for carnival in Slovenia in February.

This time I didn’t have the opportunity to try Zupa ogórkowa … we don’t know this in Slovenia. Something for the next year.
