My corner of the world Upper Silesia

31 st March 2015

Spring has definitely arrived at my place but it is normal here tomorrow is 1st April - Fool Day. The first green leaves has appeared. I took all photos from the tenth floor where my friends live.Fortunately I live on the 3rd floor it is more comfortable for me. I love flying plane but living so high it is not a pleasure. Believe me..

Traditional polish easter egg

31st March 2015

I love decorated eggs but personally I don't do it. Many years ago my grandma did it. But now I am so busy to do it.  It is a shame but time has changed so I buy all products in the supermarket.



I love beer...

30th March 2015

Polish beer is a good quality so a lot of people love it.It is very popular here. It was taken in Gdańsk by the Baltic Sea. This big barrel contains some delicious beer and the restaurant opposite served it.. Beer is a great drink in the summer heat..


I love drinking beer. And what about you dear blogger friends?

Easter in my summer house..as usual ..


28th March 2015

Time flies so quickly but I am not prepared it  and Easter is at the corner.. I am very busy with my new flat and work. Fortunately the shopping centre are well equipped so I can buy all products there. I don't spend Easter at my permanent place but I am going to my summer place. But unfortunately the weather is going to be bad. I think I will make some nice Easter decorations and bake cake and probably I will make a delicious salad.

The Goat's Farm in Spain

27th March 2015

In 2013 I was in Spain and we visited a farm. It was a big farm.  There were a lot of goats which were so nice and friendly.We don't have those goats in Poland. And what is important in Spain farms are not located near houses where their owners live. At my place if you have a farm your house is located next to it. In Spain you must travel about 10 km from your house to farm so the owners usually leave their farms early in the morning and come back in the evening.  In my opinion it is not easy lifestyle..



 The farm was located near Granada..

Fences, fences only wooden....

26th March 2015


It was a sentimental trip to the land of my ancestors. Last summer we visited the Museum of Folk Architecture in Sanok which is about 400 km from my permanent place. It is very interesting space where you can see different building mainly houses from 19th century, I love the wooden fences which now are not so common here,

Lovely house from 19th century...

I visited the Museum of Folk Architecture in Sanok last summer.It is one of the biggest open-air museums in Poland. It was established in 1958 by Aleksander Rybicki and contains 200 buildings which have been relocated from different areas of Sanok. The Sanok museum shows 19th and early 20th century life in this area of Poland.

My ancestors lived here before they left Poland..

23rd March 2015

Most of my ancestors who were born in South - East of my country left Poland. They left Poland in the beginning of the 20th century ( between 1905 -1912) and sailed about 6 weeks to the US. Nobody of them never visited their homeland.
Why? The answer is simple they were too poor to come back. Were they happy there? As I have found out definitely no...


 They couldn't speak English so adjusting to live overseas was difficult.
They lived in that house.. And this house still exists and my distant relatives there. As you can see at the house they are  not well -off but very friendly. I met them once in 2013. My life is completely different and I am sure much more comfortable... I live in the completely different world but what is important in the same country..

Vineyard in my summer place...

22nd March 2015


Vineyards are becoming more and more popular in Poland. In some regions of my country climate is suitable for growing grapes. In my summer place according to me the climate is not so hot but there is a small vineyard here. The vineyard here is successful and the wine is good quality. It is located about 400 metres from my house..




Can you believe the photos were taken on 9th November 2015.
