Alternative Travel Project – a post by Ala Gibki

Have you ever wondered if there are any other ways to get to school or work other than by car? There’s so much being said about air pollution caused by traffic. In 2017 there were one billion cars in the world. It’s believed that by 2024 this number will have doubled. There are 320 millions cars just in the USA. Can you imagine? As a comparison, there are ‘only’ 19 millions cars in Poland!

Totally different Christmas? Why not! – a blog post by Ala Gibki

Eating ‘pierogi’, a Christmas tree and some hay under a table cover is something that every Polish person thinks of when it comes to Christmas traditions. Everyone seems more friendly and even all these cold days don’t really buffet us then. But have you ever wondered about other countries’ customs, the things they do during this special time of the year? No? Then let me tell you about some of them! Continue reading

Happy EASTER :)

“They were here before us and if we’re not careful, they’ll be here after us…” a post by Ala

Winter break gave me a lot of free time and I could finally get my well-deserved rest and enjoy watching some movies. I’ve always been interested in dinosaurs. I’ve also been a huge, even a little obsessive “Jurassic Park” fan for many years now and I perfectly remember seeing every single part of the movie for the first time. I’m sure most of you know the whole series as well. Anyways, today I’d like to tell you about the newest movie called “Jurassic World” because I think it’s the best of all of them and I immediately got absolutely addicted to it. It was directed by Colin Trevorrow and the cast includes Bryce Dallas Howard, Chris Pratt, Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins. Continue reading

Why go skiing if you can go shovel-riding? – a post by Ala

Winter time is usually hard for most people, as lots of us prefer summer – you know when it’s warm outside and we have a long summer break. It turns out to be even worse, when it comes to people who like different types of outdoor sports. Seriously, can you imagine doing something like street workout when you can’t even get your hands out of your pockets or take off your gloves because it’s so freezing outside? Yeah, me neither.

Fall in love with WrocLOVE – my Love!

I wasn’t born here, in Wrocław. My hometown is a little town in south-eastern Poland. But Wrocław was my love at first sight. I came here many years ago and immediately felt at home here. I don’t know if it was more because of people who live here, or due to the beauty of the town itself. I just knew I wanted to make my own home here. And so I did 🙂 Continue reading

Brace yourselves, Christmas is coming! – a post by Ala Gibki

‘Christmas is too sparkly’… Said no one ever!  I see Christmas stuff everywhere I look, yet I still can’t get enough of it. I simply love all those lights. They not only look beautiful at night, they also mean a lot to me. I tell you, I have tons of childhood memories connected with them! Continue reading
