Little things that make us satisfied



It was really hot (boiling hot, I should say). 
I belonged to those daring (reckless) people who went out on a steaming asphalt. 
My intentions were pure- I wanted to discover Toruń- one of the most charming towns in Poland. Unfortunately, I chose a wrong time- the end of  July, which ist probably the hottest month in this country. In spite of those circumstances I was able to learn something:
Toruń (also: Thorn, Thorunia, Torunium)  is one of the oldest towns in Poland. 
It has a really gripping history and traditions. The most worth visiting is the main square with its surroundings (Old City Town Hall, Gingerbread Museum,  
Centre of Contemporary Art "Znaki Czasu" , Nicolaus Copernicus House, Astronomy Observatory)
If You are intrigued to know more, Visit Toruń or just wait for the next post:)

The pictures above have been taken inside one of those lovely junk shops in the centre of the town 
(1., 3., 4., 6.) and Old City Town Hall (2., 5.). 
A bit of art (and air-conditioning) saved me from an impact of blistering heat.

Family life. Quite an art.












"The exhibition consists of photographs 
which found their way to the Museum collection 
directly from private homes (albums, drawers, computers). 
We will be guided by the recordings of interviews with the donors. 
Who and what do we wish to remember? Why do we keep photographs? 
When do we look at them? What do we see in them as we don't all see the same things?"


Photos are an important part of family life, a kind of documentation of  unforgettable moments. 
But they're useless if just saved on a disc. Their destiny is  to be shared.

Bayern with a lot of love





In  one of the previous posts I have told You about my personal bonds with that area. 
Now it's high time to tell You something about the region. Bayern is the biggest province (Bundesland) located in south-eastern Germany. It is a pefect place for tourists because of the Alps, gorgeous lakes and historical places. 
And now something about traditions. 
You might have heard about 'Oktoberfest'. 
Yes, You certainly have because the festival is connected with beer ;).
'Oktoberfest' has taken place every year since 1810 at the turn of September and October in  München- the capital city of Bayern. 
People from all over the world come here to celebrate and taste the wonderful german beer and sausages. The statistics show that nearly 6,5 million people take part in 'Oktoberfest' every year. 
Unfortunately... we didn't. So I don't have any photos;) 
If You want to check out how  the festival looks like, visit its official website: http://www.oktoberfest.info/ 
or simply take part in it this year. I certainly will;)

Naturally...


People, animals and plants breathe the same air, 
live on the same planet.
 Every attack on nature 
is an attack on a human being...

And the pig(eon)s might fly!



These pics were taken today near my house. Our neighbour is really fond of every creature that wants to be fed. That's the main reason why on our street we can find almost every kind of animal;) One day we even saw a fox (!). In a big city is really SOMETHING.

An exchange with benefits ;)

 This post is dedicated to Yeliz and her family- the nicest people in the world;)







Last year I took part in an exchange with students from Germany (Bayern). Till our arrival in Coburg we didn't know almost anything about the place and people we were going to visit, so we had a really nice surprise- our so-called 'Gastfamilien' turned out to be very friendly. The time spent in their houses (5 days) was definitely too short but also very fruitful.
I'm looking forward to seeing them again!

The pics above have been taken both in the museum&house of  Goethe (famous german poet) 
and outside- in Weimar (the town where he lived). I really recommend you to visit this place. The town
 offers a few interesting museums:
After being there I understand why these oustanding artists chose Weimar 
as a place to live and create their works.

My favourites



I have a great sentiment towards these pics.
The colours are wonderful, aren't they?
All of the photos were taken in France last year- 
the first two pictures in the cathedral of Orlean 
and the last one in an art gallery in Paris.

There is an effect of movement in the last two pictures, thanks to a long exposure.
You might not have seen it but the second pic shows candles and the third one- paintings.
Obviously in the first picture  is an altar;)

Colours of life...


My best friend told me today, that my blog should contain more colours.
To explain, I have to say that recently these are the colours of my life:
Violet represents melancholy...
Grey is sadness...
Red for me means falling in love...
And orange stands for being trigger-happy.
Does it mean being in the doldrums?
 ...

...
No, it's coming of age;)

From France with love p.2



Look, what (who) I found there! They're so cute 
(I mean the second dog, I think that the first is a bit sad...)
Don't be cruel to your dogs, take them for a walk!

From France with love p.1

Happy New Year!!!





/I wish that my life was so colourful as those fireworks/

Three shades of winter




Sometimes it's better without snow...
Because what's usually hidden under it...
Can be eventually appreciated.
