RTW review – a year on the road

Wow, a year of continuous travel! And not a single mile flown. That’s quite an achievement. For my month 12 review I am going to do something different, especially since I just recently posted a lengthy review of South East Asia and also updated the post on the travel worries I had before I left. So that’s 12…

RTW review – month 1

This is the last of my scheduled posts, while I am somewhere on the Atlantic onboard a cargo ship from Europe to USA. This is also the first in a planned series of reviews of each month on my Grand Adventure, the good and the bad. The best of the best I can honestly say…

RTW two more days in Krakow

With less than a week until I board my first cargo ship, from Bremenhaven to US, I wanted to spend some time in nature, with preferably a view over the city. There are in fact four memorial mounds around Krakow city center, and I decided on Kościuszko mound as it is situated in a wooded area. The…

RTW first impressions of Poznan

I love it! There’s a gorgeous, historical, quirky pedestrian old city center, a chocolate shop, lots of cafes and restaurants dotting the edges of the old town square and beyond, a fully vegetarian Indian restaurant, fab old cathedrals, loads of history and a river through it. And I’ve only been here for less than five hours.…
