Giant Wrocław

I was walking through Wrocław the other evening when I came across this giant lawn chair. I’ve seen it before, it just never occurred to me how big it was until I saw an illegally parked car directly underneath it. The chair is 9 meters tall and is made of smooth concrete.

Sobótka Bungee

Located just a half hour ride from Wrocław is an old granite mine near the town of Sobótka. I remember going there when I was a kid as my cousin Piotrek, a very skilled swimmer, cliff dived into the now water filled mine. Last Sunday our buddy Cichy asked us to come by and hang…

Glider Flying

Today I was finally able to cash in my February birthday gift and got 30 minutes of flight time in a glider. Parachute training took about two minutes and was a little weird. I mean, the last thing I wanted to hear from a guy I’ve just met and am about to set off to…

But little did I know, there’s a difference in the Gummie jelly, and that difference seems…
