A Vespa Wedding

It was supposed to be a different. The plan was to ride the 33 year old Vespa from the Cathedral, where the wedding ceremony took place, to the wedding hall some 6km away. Unfortunately the weather didn’t hold, and after a week of sunny 30°C days, it rained most of Saturday, and it kept raining…

Break The Silence – TEDx Wrocław 2016

Today Ania and I attended a TEDx Wrocław event called Break The Silence. It was my third TEDx Wroclaw event, and it was the best TEDx Wroclaw to date! I’ve been a little critical of the past events, but this year the TEDx Wroclaw crew raised the bar way high with all aspects of the…

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

A Taste of Europe

Wrocław hosted a “Taste of Europe” food festival last week. The proper translation would sound more to the tune of “Europe at the fork tip” or something along those lines. But my translation fits better as that’s exactly what it was: a bunch of vendors from different European countries showing off their local cuisine. We…

Charging at GOVECS

Galactico installed their charge station right in front of our GOVECS windows, and we couldn’t be happier to oblige and charge up our privately owned GOVECS scooters every day. It also makes for a pretty cool photo op as we get more and more visitors charging at this station. Last week we had client from…
