Storefronts of Basel

The Swiss know how to do it. How to life in style and how to surround themselves with beauty, art and good food. Switzerland never looked better, I thought when I visited Zürich on a perfectly blue skied summer day last year. Once in Zürich, it was soon obvious why this city is one of […]

Old meets new in Wrocław, Poland

One thing I learned on the other side of the world is, that it’s not only the far destinations, 7 world wonders or instagram hot spots worth aiming for. Traveling starts by exploring your hometown.
