I've changed my address at least once per year since 2011. I moved once again, and now I call home Poland.
It started as a failure — I was rejected from a university due to my "lack of talent". Now I know it was one of the best things that could happen to me, as it pointed me to a world of possibilities I couldn't even imagine. After experiencing people and places across the US, EU, and recently China, I opted to keep the wheel spinning, and after a few layovers across countries, I was sitting in a bus heading to Poland.
Suddenly, we got lost somewhere in Germany, and I thought, "We are reaching an age where even a toilet paper holder has a GPS receiver, but a big bus company can't manage to drive through a city?! How hard could it be?" But no bother: headphones projecting decibels of Joy Division didn't allow any distressing state of mind.
"A change of speed, a change of style, a change of scene, with no regrets..."
"Oh yeah, it is not my fight that we just entered a one-way street in the wrong direction," I concluded. "I am excited. Properly excited. I scored a place in Poland through the Erasmus+ programme for student mobility, which paid me to come and learn new stuff in the city of Wroclaw. "How cool is that! There is yet another chapter of life ahead of me, and I feel keen to experience it." A sense of freedom soaked my mind, balanced the universe; all was good in my world. Wroclaw, here I come!
So aye. I've been here a bit, and without a surprise, I took some pics. Here's the first batch..
...the fourth-largest city in Poland, with a population of ~700 000.
...with a neat city center
...A place with many landmarks
...also as grey as it gets, every now and then. That's not a complaint tho.
..cool to walk through
..a city with many interesting corners to explore
..a fine place to be.
