The Tough Guy Challenge

The Tough Guy Challenge began a few years back on the eve of the International Women’s Day. As the story goes, my buddy Robert and his then-roommate were asked to leave the flat so that the girls could celebrate their day by having a girls night in. Unfortunately for these guys, they came home too…

End of Carnival

Today’s Ash Wednesday, meaning the end of carnival has come upon us. The next 40 days are about fasting and deep soul searching within ourselves in preparation for Easter. But while getting some ash sprinkled on my head today I realized that I did not share any of my carnival photos on here. Ania and I…

Fado At The Beach

Technically dogs are not allowed at the beach. But we just couldn’t deny Fado all this fun in the sun with his frisbee.  (More photos once I get back to a laptop and a reliable internet connection)

Monster X Tour Wrocław

Monster X Tour stopped by my city of Wrocław in June. I think they meant for the event to be pretty big but with just a few days left before the show I snagged our tickets cheap via Groupon. This must have been due to lack of interest and initial high cost of the tickets.…

My Photography

I’ve noticed a trend in my own photo taking, one that continuously veers towards the use of a phone camera rather than my DSLR. Ever since I played around with the awesome camera on a Nokia Lumia 920 I really stopped using my DSLR altogether. But I did find a new use for my Nikon…

My EICMA 2013 Recap

This year marked my second time at the EICMA motorcycle exhibition, the biggest two wheel trade show in the world. And while the initial oomph of the show has worn off just a little from last year, only because I knew a little what to expect, this year did not disappoint. GOVECS is the reason I…

My Funmoto

And the winner of my motorcycle conundrum is… Honda FMX 650. Truth be told, I was thinking of giving up on the idea of motorcycle ownership altogether. Somewhere between not knowing what type of a motorcycle I wanted and seeing my savings account actually have some money in it I wondered if a two-wheeler of my own…

April Fools or Just a Prank?

There are two things that always happen when people admire pranks: first, they laugh, and second, they assume one has too much time on their hands. I’ve read once that laughter adds years to your lifespan. At this pace, I’m gonna live forever! 🙂 A prank can’t be pulled on just anyone. Some people expect…

The Carnival

This ain’t no Rio, but Poland likes to party just as much during the carnival time. This past weekend we danced the night away in a small town of Bierutów about 45kms outside of Wrocław. Karolina’s friends are from there and we met up with them along with two other couples to occupy a table…

My Work Christmas Tree Tradition

It was back in 2002 that while working for Los Angeles METRO I wondered into Chinatown after work and found myself this Christmas tree. A simple yet elegant way of saying that I too want to express my holiday spirit without looking too much like a panzy. And it worked…almost. The tree was a hit,…

Prague is Funny

We began our recent trip with a short stay in Prague. We stopped by this city to show it to Jeff. Since I’ve posted a few photos of Prague before, here’s a few shots of Prague’s funny bone. That city is full of humor at every turn. There was a local drunk fishing out Check…
