i have a million miles but no place to go

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

This week I am on a sick leave (fucking virus throat infection – screw you, Belgian viruses!) so I have time to do things that I don’t have time for usually. So today I was cooking… :-) But also I am really fascinated by Google Earth. Really amazing to look at the places I’ve been to or I wanna go to. Amazing piece of software. Anyway, here you have a sample of that. Currently I claim to be homeless. But the fact is that I have 3 homes.

The first one is in Gdynia. This is my family house, the one I was living since high school till the end of the studies. With a view on a gulf and a port. The second one is in Brussels – apartment I share with Ignacio – crazy Spanish bastard. Nice house with a garden in a not-so-good district but quite close to the center. For me – perfect.The third one is in Warsaw where I rent a room at Karolina’s place (my friend from high school in Gdynia). I have to have a place here because of my studies. So in fact I don’t have my own place on this crazy small planet. And not planning to at the moment. 3 homes but none of them is for real. Fucking homeless. Not my time to throw an anchor. Yet.

BTW – if you like Google Earth I would really appreciate if you sent me your places.

something to remember

Really crazy road trip to the Belgian coast. Me and Ignacio. Evening. Can’t say anything more (in case my kids were reading). Living is bad for your health. Photo with an Indian (Ignacio claims he was a sailor, but I am sure he was an Indian).

like a dream within a dream

New Year’s Eve (or Sylvester) was for me one of the biggest cultural experiences for me. And it was all because of visitors – Ignacio’s friends coming to Brussels for a few days – 4 Spanish and 1 French.

Being with them was really great (even though they spoke Spanish a lot and I couldn’t understand a shit). After some time I understood that comparing to the Polish people, we should be on a prosac all the fucking time.

On the 31 we went first to Eindhoven. Just visiting which ended up with a nice photo session (picture above).

The thing that amazed me most was… cooking. These guys were working on that like well-oiled machines, which ended up with a table full of food.

In Spain you start ny eve with food and start drinking/partying at midnight. In Poland at midnight you are already fucking drunk and you are half way to a hangover.

Then there were fireworks and eating 12 grapes for 12 prosperous months (Aurelie joined us after family dinner).

Then there was a big rain in Brussels.

Then we went to a pub.

Then we did a lot of walking.

And then we went to a party on a barge.

And then we went home.

I really enjoyed it! Perfect ny eve. And no hangover!
