About

This blog originally started along the premise that if ever there was a disaster-prone traveler and cancelled-flight-inducing conference and event organizer, it was me. Every time I flew from France to Buffalo for Christmas I would spend nights sleeping on the ground at JFK airport. My suitcases would get kidnapped en route to conferences and returned to me at the border at midnight (not kidding). VIPs whose tickets I had booked to the international conference I was organizing would  be stuck in the airplane at their departure point, waiting for ash clouds to clear or air personnel to go off strike.

But while that made my life entertaining (and my writing hopefully as well) for a long spell,  the travel curse no longer seems to be afflicting me. [knock on wood]. I know this is for sure because not only do I get to places on time, but the last time I traveled for work across the Atlantic, the airline employee at the gate stopped me, told me the flight was overbooked and that they would have to… upgrade me to business class.

So now I’m back to doing what I do second best, and that is sharing with you glimpses of tastes, textures, thoughts, images, echoes, from my travels and from my home (currently the East Coast).

I hope you enjoy it, and I hope to share in your local and foreign adventures as well.

  1. dobry wieczór. chciałam tylko wspomnieć, że ta kropka na mapie na wschodzie europy to ja 🙂 i jeszcze, że zdjęcia Ciebie koczującej robią wrażenie… 🙂 pozdrowienia serdeczne.

    • Dziekuje za wizyte i zapraszam czesciej 🙂 Co do zdjecia, to moja kolezanka ktora ze mna byla na owym nieszczesnym dworcu stwierdzila wtedy, ze jestem ‘wzorem zula dworcowego’. Jeden z bardziej interesujacych komplementow w moim zyciu 😉

  2. Your blog looks great! And I’m very curious to read about your stay in Belgium. It seems your stays always turn out to be big adventures. 🙂

  3. Sounds like you might have had a lot of similar experiences to mine in PL. Where did you live? I was living in Warsaw. I’ve actually been toying with the idea of writing a ten things I DON”T miss but haven’t decided if I should be so negative yet.

    It always amazed me in PL when I met other Poles that grew up abroad, about how similar our experiences and thoughts about PL would be. Would be great chatting with you sometime to see how you feel about yours.

    Thanks for the follow.

    • Thanks for stopping by! It does sound we’ve had a lot of similar experiences… although I lived there a lot longer (almost half of my life! So not even sure if I’m more Polish or American at this point ;)). I was living in Warsaw and love that city. You have a great blog – will be sure to be following your adventures closely! It’s amazing how people can connect in the blogosphere.

  4. Hey! Just wanted to let you know I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Award 🙂 http://ellekaysay.wordpress.com/2013/03/23/homeward-bound-liebster/
