Sushi Night

Speaking of fish… Every now and again we get together within our circle friends for a movie night. The usual scenario is that we collectively pick a genre of the movie we would like to watch and discuss, every couple submits a movie title in that genre, we then vote on the movie, watch it,…

Wrocław, by the Sea

Catching up with regularly scheduled blog posting… Wrocław is some 460km (267miles) from the Baltic sea. That’s about a seven hour drive on crappy Polish expressways, making Wrocław as un-coastal as possible.

I’ve never seen beaver damage up close before, but their handy…err, tooth…

PMI Study

I’m currently studying for my PMI exam that will take place at the beginning of March. I’m not quite sure what to make of it yet, but it’s been a while since I’ve spent every free hour at home studying. PMI stands for Project Management Institude and the exam I’ll be taking is a PMP…
