    Small luxuries we don’t appreciate

    Living among local people in Asia has taught us to appreciate even the smallest things. After a bit over 3 years, we already know that westerners (Europe and the USA mainly) are extremely privileged. They are surrounded by conveniences that they don't appreciate and that others can only dream about. Until quite recently, we belonged to these people.

    Relaxing time in Junoszyno

    Yes, we spent the last year at the seaside and in theory, we should have enough of it. However, one of the first places in Poland we decided to go to was the Polish sea. In fact, the sea didn't interest us as much as the forest you have to go through to get to the sea. I love the…

    Time to go back

    For some time now I was getting emails and text messages on my phone to register for covid vaccination. The problem with this is that I would need to be in my home country in the first place.

    Wild life and relax

    Spending summary for 2020

    It wasn't the best year for digital nomads nor tourists. However, we still managed to move around a little bit and as always I tried to keep an eye on our expenses. Due to the covid outbreak and lockdowns, we were forced to stay in one country for a very long time. At least much longer than we expected.

    Typhoon and storm season

    Vietnam due to its' location faces tropical storms and typhoons every year. For us, it's a completely new experience so we didn't know what to expect. For some time now temperatures were much lower and it rained a bit nearly every day. It was like a prelude to what was coming. The first time we saw tropical storm warning in…

    Staying put until further notice

    While the whole world was still struggling with Covid-19 here in Da Nang we felt relatively safe. There was no new case registered in Vietnam for 100 days and everything went back to normal. Streets were full of people and food stalls. Every weekend we've seen full busses of local tourists dropped to hotels around our building. Life went on…
