Wroclaw – Vrotslove – Vrots of Love

Promo-video for Wrocław, in the race for European Capital of Culture in 2016. In the video, it’s trying to make it easier for us foreigners to pronounce the name Wrocław by splitting it into two easy-to-remember bits: Vrots and Love.

Dolina Mnikowska

Nice to visit if in the neighbourhood of Krakow: The Mnikowska Valley

Ryanair & A Possible Double Booking #wtf

As regular Ryanair-customer, you get used to the way the low-cost carrier is treating its customers. Will not complain about that, what you pay is what you get and they always bring me from point A to point B, which is exactly what I expect from them. Until I double booked a flight.

Background, in my enthusiasm I booked one flight to Krakow twice. Stupid, I know, but ok, it happened. Will not nag about the fact that cancelling is  impossible , nor that changing the dates of the duplicate showed more expensive than booking a new one. So basically I took my loss and accepted that one of the two bookings was a waste of money.
But sending me a notification that I possibly booked twice for the same flight exactly three (3) minutes after that flight took off?
Really Ryanair, WTF?

Witamy w Rzeszów-Jasionka


After being unable to land the plane on Krakow airport, due to heavy fog, found myself in “Port lotniczy Rzeszów-Jasionka“, a cute little airport 160 km east with a very specific charm. Above the Parking spots & Arrival ‘hall’.

Polish hooligans, well taken care of


They take their soccer hooligans serious in Poland.
