Sunday Brew & Tacos

On Sunday we stopped by the “City Brewery”. The defunct looking complex of redbrick buildings actually used to be a brewery on-again, off again, from 1894 to 1996.

May is known in Poland as the beginning of the grilling season, mostly because May is the first month warm and sunny enough to do anything outside. Temperatures in the 20°C+ (68°F) become fairly common and the sunshine wakes everything, and everyone, back to life. Saturday was so sunny and warm that we decided to…

Thanksgiving in Poland

Thanksgiving doesn’t really exist in Poland, which made our first Polish Thanksgiving all the more special. We did after all spend nearly two decades in the U.S., and are plenty thankful for the opportunities that time spent in America had provided us.

Charge Station Fail

I’ve written about Galactico charging stations having some issues in my Tesla post, but today I had a chance to find out first hand the pain of not having anywhere to plug in with a dead battery. I went out for a Sunday ride around the city and got my battery down to two bars,…

My Tesla

Tesla’s are not a common sight in Poland and I haven’t seen one personally anywhere in Wrocław. There are only 12 registered Teslas Model S in all of Poland at the time of this writing, a country of roughly 38million people. But chances of encountering the 13th Tesla have been greatly improved as its owner…
