Danske Bank Vilnius marathon start

Those who know me better, know that I do not like running races. Yes, I like to run. Over the last few years I have done it quite regularly, and occasionally I’m running for twenty or even more kilometers. But mostly I do it alone. When I want. Where I want. The way I want. And yet, last month, we both … Read More

At the Northern part of Langkawi

11 weeks or nearly 3 months. Such a long period of time we have currently spent on Langkawi island doing volunteer work.

Where they … Read More

Hong Kong waterfront

As I wrote earlier, Hong Kong for us with Una was completely spontaneous destination (it was in summer of 2014). When buying tickets, we did not know, not what we gonna do there, nor where we gonna live. Nothing.
