EN This friday is the night of all night: Halloween! I already wrote you about its origins in last year`s post (here). I still don`t know what my costume will be- either geisha or will it be a creepy stiched doll? We shall see...To get you some ideas for your Halloween costume, I summed up some of my favourite costumes including videos showing their correct procedure, whereas the last videos by Lex are on a advanced level where you can show off your artistic skills- she`s extremly talented using her own face and body as her canvas.
EN Wroclaw celebrates again the European Glass Festival - no wonder it got its title of city of culture 2016. In this year's main exhibition, "Animal Planet", organized once again in Wroclaw`s Central Station (Dworzec Główny PKP) will show the work of 18 artists from 14 countries in Europe working in different artistic techniques that use glass in their work. The festival encounts 54 glass objects scattered around whole Wroclaw, where you can participate in tour guides and search for the items.
EN Healthy breakfast is the non plus ultra to start the day effectively. Usually when you eat a sandwich (or at least in my case) I get hungry really soon. After around 30 min, my stomach growls and I hear from my collegues "Hey, didn`t you have breakfast today?". But in case of eating such a muesli, you are sated at least for 2-3 hours. So what do you need for this healthy snack?
EN Cracow (Krakow) is the third largest city in poland- and truly one the most beautiful polish cities. It is quite a shame that I`ve visited it for the first time just last year. But, hey, what can I do when my family lives in Wroclaw and me, originally coming from Hamburg, loving to travel, rather prefer to visit warm countries in holiday season like Spain or Italy, than Poland. But after my experience with Wroclaw, with whom I truely fell in love with and spend my 6 years there- I can say: Poland always in my heart.
EN A new place has opened and it is definetely one of its kind: In this Cafe you may choose between fresh brewed coffe, fluffy home-made cupcakes, finger food, or apple pie, read a book, play games, and the only thing you pay for is the time you have spent in that venue- Brilliant! Definetely there is a rule: You have to be at least 15 min there, but killing time will be one of your least problems due to a variety of activities offered at Panato.
EN Hello, my dear readers! Yes, it was some weeks ago when I was actually in Gdansk and took a small trip to Hel, Poland. While looking outside the window now it is the complete opposite of what you will see on the following pictures right from the beach! I never have been to a polish beach before, usually traveling to spain or to an further island to enjoy the sea and white beaches- but that`s exactly what one can enjoy here at Hel, too. Besides suntanning, you also get a perfect opportunity to wakeboard or to sail.
EN The workplace can be stylish on many ways where you productively put your ideas to paper. Simple design, natural wood and a comfortable chair make up the work area. I'm a big fan of the iconic Eames chairs, where functionality, design and comfort is combined. The couple Ray and Charles Eames designed some of the most famous Bauhaus furniture of the 20th century, such as the Lounge Chair & Ottoman, office chairs, armchairs and tables. Their life's work influenced until today the modern design.
EN You should know, I am not keen on eating fish, but as my boyfriend spontaneously asked me out to eat sushi with him and I had my first bite: I was totally into it! I love the combination of sweet fruites like mango, honey melon or let it be fried cucumber, carrots, pineapple, white reddish, together with fried fish and sushi rice.
EN Do you remember Cafe Monsieur on Wiezienna Street? Sadly it is gone, but instead of the mustache, a brand new venue is waiting for you and achieved already No. 8 out of 20 on the list of Ale Lokale. - This truely sounds promising! It is only a stone`s throw away from where I live, so I decided to try their delicious tapas together with my boyfriend. Le Chef has a industrial interior mixing warm wood furniture together with the rather cold appearing white brick walls.
