Moto Sale

I sold my Transalp last week. Pictured here is my last photo of it, along with its new owner Jacek. I wasn’t gonna post anything about it, but my wife’s response to that photo was priceless. I messaged her the photo with a “SOLD” caption, and her reply was: “That guy doesn’t look like he knows…

Just Married

It was a warm, sunny and gold October Saturday in Wrocław when we said our “I do’s”. Actually it wasn’t “I do” at all. In the Roman Catholic Church, which most of Poland subscribes to, we have to repeat full on phrases in the manner of “I, Sławomir, take you Anna, to be my lawfully…
