yearly student carnival, Łódź, Poland

Now is time of Juwenalia (yearly student carnival) in various academic institutions in Poland. My friend Elian invited me to Łódź to celebrate it there. I went there on 19th of May till 21st of May.

Łódź is 4h away from Siedlce by train with a change in Warsaw Wschodnia. Elian met me in Łódź Fabryczna station and we went t eat something. It was a very pleasant afternoon. Albi decided to come from Wroclaw as well and joined us in the evening. We filled up a backpack with beers and went out to drink and laugh with people. There was a lot of international students from Ukraine, Spain, Nigeria, Albania, Andora, Brasil, etc. I was nicely surprised. Completely like not a Polish city. Cool! We went to some club and we were dancing and drinking on a party in front of some dormitory till dawn.

Next day we sleept looong. lol

My life in Siedlce, my company & photography, Poland

I arrived to Poland after a long absence over 6 months ago. Since that time I run a company where I repair computers, laptops and mobile phones. I started it with my friend Samil from Azerbejdzan who wanted to do it with me, but he is more used to work from 9 to 5 with a fixed salary every month, so 2 weeks ago he stopped to run it with me and stayed at work at my brothers place where I organized him a place to work over a year ago. 2 weeks ago I started to train my new little helper who would be able to help me with work a bit.

Moreover two months ago while I was checking I found an offer on webinar in an Academy in Dublin. I could become student and learn about photography. I signed in for that and for this period of time I am attending two lessons per week of a live webinar, 1h each. Moreover at the beginning of the month I started another webinar, was on offer as well for 30 days, where I can learn how to use Lightroom. In total 4h of useful knowledge every week! I really enjoy learning about photography and I gained a lot of knowledge which I am starting to use in practice.

I want to share with you my reader that yesterday I watched a really cool movie called Passengers. Why did I like it? It’s about space and future which we may experience if the humanity will work hard enough to achieve it. It touches as well a sense of a human life. Sharing happiness is all we need 🙂

Easter in Lviv, Ukraine

As I don’t celebrate Easter I had not much to do in a few days during that period. For a few months we planned with friends a trip to see Lviv and it seemed like it would be a good period to go there. I have been in other big cities of Ukraine, but not in that one. It was a Polish city, so I thought would be cool to see it.

My friends who were travelling from Wroclaw & Lodz had a bit easier task than me to get to Przemysl as from there we were going to take a train. I found out that there is no connection to go from north (Siedlce) to south (Przemysl) of Poland. However it is very easy and comfortable to travel from West to East – for example a train is every 2h. I was lucky that some guy from Mazury was going to Przemysl for Easter and he announced it in Bla Bla Car, so I could travel with him which took me 4,5h, otherwise would have been more than 10h.

Train from Przemysl took us to Lviv. It was about 2h ride and we experienced a big passport control as we were leaving the EU. On the way back it was even more rigorous as our bags were checked and there was a dog sniffing around.

After arrival we checked in to a hostel where we had a big room for ourselves and we started exploration of the city. Lviv is not a very big city. It is possible to walk almost everywhere. There are as well very old buses and trams. In the city centre there is Lviv’s National Academic theatre of opera and ballet named after Solomiya Krushelnytska surrounded by some squares and small streets pleasant to walk around. Moreover it is worth to have a look at Greek Catholic 18th century St. George’s Cathedral, Church of St. Olha and Elizabeth which is nicely iluminated at night, Black Townhouse, Statue of Taras Shevchenko, Church of the Holy Communion and High Castle in the park. It is super nice to have a walk around the park as it is uphill and from the top there is possible to enjoy an amazing view. There was as well a Pharmacy Museum which may be worth having a look at, but we didn’t go there.

I had a good general impression on Lviv. The most amazing thing about this city for me is its age. There are buildings even from 16th century. There is possible to see history on every corner. However, it is not as rich and beautiful as for example Prague. It is beautiful, because it is old. I recommend visiting this city to people who would like do some sightseeing, relax and have some romantic time. I think it is super romantic place.
