Camp des Milles

Camp des Milles

Camp des Milles is now a memorial site. It was a 1900s tile factory which was transformed into a detention camp in September 1939. Thousands of Jews were sent to Auschwitz from this place. It is worth a visit, without any doubt. It is one of the best museums I’ve seen and surely the best […]

Marseille Cathedral

3 Churches in Marseille

I am sharing pictures from 3 Churches in Marseille, as these are the ones I visited and also the most important ones. Notre-Dame de la Garde is visible from central Marseille. It is a climb to get there, but the views are worth it. There is a Petit Train which stops there for about 20 […]

Château d’If

Château d’If is my first post on France. I am still on holiday, but I have my laptop with me, so I took a bit of time to process the pictures and write a short post on this wonderful place. Most likely my next post will be a picture-only post. Château d’If is in Marseille. […]

Kraków Barbican

Funny stuff and walk through Krakow

Funny stuff and walk through Krakow is my last post from Poland, from this visit, because I will go back to Poland. So, the funny stuff first, although not all can be seen as funny. Also, I will talk about Krakow and Przemysl (border town). First of all, I will start with transportation. It’s time […]

Rynek Underground Museum is a new museum, opened in 2010 on ancient history. It is very nice, underneath an old market square. The museum has a lot of interesting artefacts on display, quite a lot. I would suggest allowing for 2 hours to visit. If you plan to see all the clips, which have English […]

Kościół MB Częstochowskiej w Krakowie

Churches in Krakow

Only when I reviewed and photoshoped the pictures for this post, Churches in Krakow, I realised how many churches we saw. So, instead of having a lot of pictures from each, I made quite a few collages. Even so, there are 18 pictures in total. In 2 days of visiting, this is impressive. The main […]

Communism museum

Communism museum, Krakow

I am sharing today pictures from the Communism museum in Krakow. It showcases different aspects of everyday life and also two bunkers, which were supposed to protect people from a nuclear blast, but were made too thin and too close to the surface to be of any use. See more here.

pizza at The Oxford Blue

The Oxford Blue

The Oxford Blue is a new vegan pub in Oxford. They just opened, in late March, and we’ve been there a few times. We had a meeting with the Vegan Society and I also went there with my husband a few times. Because it was busy when I arrived for the first time I didn’t […]

May 2024

May was an exciting month. I finally had my graduation from the 2-year course I finished at Oxford in 2021. Amusingly, I had my graduation from KCL last year, studies I could only undertake because I finished my Oxford course with a good grade. I’ve decided to wear my Vyshyvanka from Ukraine because of my […]
