About

I was born in Poland thirty eight years ago. I lived there until I was almost thirty. I moved a lot within my country and I have been travelling abroad a lot but at one point, I decided to take it a step further.

Two, three weeks in another country would tell you nothing about the people, the culture and the place, I thought.

So…I moved to England.

I lasted two years there and moved to Italy. I stayed in Italy for almost three years. Then I crossed the Atlantic and let New York City drain the energy out of my body and the money out of my bank account. I needed a job, so I moved back to Europe, and here I am, in Amsterdam.

This is my fifth country and I know already, it is not the last one. I will soon follow my husband-to-be to his motherland – the bonny land of Scotland!

Have I enjoyed so far?
Yes.
Do I want to keep going like this?
No.
I need rutine. I need home to come BACK to.

So far, I have lived “forward”, never looking back, never stopping. Go, go, run.

It is now time for a rest.

I love this quote of Marcel Proust: “The real voyage of discovery consists, not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”

I needed new eyes and now I have them.

  1. Someone told me that you have just become the latest member of The Spikey’s, that small clan of folk known to be followers of Uncle Spike 🙂

    Thank you… I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.

    My aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures since the 70′s, as well as day to day happenings on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations on life as I see it. Of course, if you have any suggestions for me, I’d love to hear from you, serious.

    In return, I promise not to be overbearing with perhaps 2-3 posts a day tops. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again for your vote of confidence, and hope you have a great day…
