About Me


being a happy family ;)


*** Update February 2013 ***

New Year, New plans - this year we're heading back to Spain for Semana Santa. Can't wait ;)

*** Update September 2012 ***

Roza started her kindergarten so it means that quite often she's bringing some sickness home. This means that we cannot guarantee a 100% hosting, but if you're lucky - feel invited.

*** Update May 2012 ***

Euro 2012 is on the go and the couch is full for that time, so sorry - we'll probably meet on the city ;) Polska gola!

*** Update November 2011 ***

Yup, summer is gone, winter is coming so we're preparing for it with big smiles. Holidays were great and looking forward to next one.

*******Heineken Open'Er Festival***************
I'm really sorry to inform that we cannot host more people at the time of festival.... Good luck and have fun at the gig!

***Update Feb 2011

So there's now 4 of us -- Berenika joined our family at the end of 2010. Living with 3 girls under one roof... for sure it will be funny ;)

***Update May 2010

Prepared for new trip -- our plan is to travel together with Rozia who is now 18mths old to Baikal Lake and sppend 4 days in transsiberian train -- sound like a good fun ;)

***Update 3.11.2009

Back from Camino de Santiago with our little Rose. It was great time for us as we walked together for 250km for over 2 weeks. Family's getting stronger! ;)

***Update 29.08.2009

We are on the road again. This time with our little Rozia we hit the road to Portugal and Spain to walk together Camino de Santiago.

***Update 14.04.2009

It's after Easter. Rozia is 4 months old now and we can start some hosting again.

***Update*** 14.12.2008

She's here! Last week our little Róża came to us an for two days she's here with us at home ;)) I,ve added somephotos of her to the gallery.

Because of new life we won't be able to host anyone for some time....

I'm happy

***Update*** 05.11.2008

Jola is in hospital now so I'm somewhere between work, hospital and home trying to organize our world for arrival of our daughter. It can be quite difficult to host now.

***Update*** 5.09.2008

We just came back from our round-the-world honey-moon trip. We're settling down in Gdynia again and starting a family ;) At end of year, there will be three of us ;))

So if you're writing us, have in mind that we are pregnant, and we can host only depending on circumstances and moods of my wife ;))) And you know that pregnant women change moods very very fast ;)

We are two Polish travelers who got married on 3.11.2007 and decided to see the world ;) You can see our wedding clip and some photos on or on

People say, that Earth is meant to be round so it is a high time to check it.
How? Sometimes hitch-hiking, sometimes local bus and sometimes on the back of a camel ;)
During our one year honey moon trip we would like to meet new people from all countries, cultures and nations, see their architectural and social achievements and discover the beauty of Mother Earth.
We have only one year but we believe that with the help of many people it is possible, so... hope to see you ;)
