About Me

ABOUT ME

Married with a girl from Poland, I have traveled many times (conventional way) to Poland, twice the last two winters on road trips by car (great experience !) Want to visit as many places as I can especially in Europe. Like Literature, Architecture and History of the places that I visit. Music, I like mainly Rock bands and singers/songwritters from all decades , I mention few of them here .. Velvet Underground, Lou Reed, Kinks, Pavement, Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers , Steve Wynn, Divine Comedy,Lucksmith, and many others
