WOW, it’s been quite a while since we posed anything on here. Having said that we are back on the road again travelling a bit. Short break, nine days in total – destination Tuscany. We did what all responsible parents would naturally do, leave the kids in school and in charge of the house and […]
There is this charming and almost enchanted looking fence on the way to Volker’s office. It is just another row of old stone buildings with a small garden up front, on an ordinary street just on the outskirts of the old town and yet there is something different and almost magical about this place – […]
Today is the first day of Spring. Today is also the first day we were comfortable enough to go out in shorts and a t-shirt, although after an hour we though we were a bit overdressed. We have been planning to take a tour around the entire castle defence walls or the old town since […]
No, it is not snow, I think we are done with that horror. At first we thought that the tree by our house was a pussy willow but it turns out that all the pussy willows turned into these white flowers. The cherry trees are in bloom too, so it’s white, yellow and pink everywhere […]

After Changing of the Guard ceremony, or rather, before it actually concluded we set off across St. James’s Park to Piccadilly and a wonder around Regent Street, essentially circling around Soho for a bit of exploration. I think we all are a bit tired so today we are taking it easy. We went back to […]
We are heading out for another busy day today. This one is almost entirely dedicated to what kids want to do. Here are some streets around our hotel on our way to the tube.
I think it is safe to say that Spring is here. Birds are out, flowers are out and the leaves are coming. It’s glorious, and warm and beautiful. [he]
Apparently it snowed last night, not much but enough to leave residue of some white sprinkling on the roofs. I think today was the coldest day that we can remember pushing +2C maybe +3C. It was actually chilly. We did not find a lot of snow but we did find more signs of spring which […]
I am not implying that winter is over, I am simply saying that spring is coming. Glorious!
I remember these from Poland when I was Evelina’s age.
