Nov 13, 2018 12:00 AM Once again to Brazil!

Once again to Brazil! I am going to South America once again! The destination is Brazil, or more precisely - Estrada Real - a route of historic towns built in colonial period, where gold and precious stones were mined. The trail led to the port of Paraty on the Atlantic coast, from where the treasures flowed to Portugal in the holds of the ships. The towns also grew rich, beautiful churches and monasteries were built there. I want to see it all. Get to know new people and experience a new adventure.
I fly on low-costs to the southern Europe and then I sail to Brazil by cheap ship, stopping on the way on Sicily, Spain and Cabo Verde. And then, in America buses, trains and probably also hitchhiking will take me overland on the distance exceeding 1600 kilometers. If the weather will be good, I will also try to reach one of the highest waterfalls in Brazil. I plan my return by air from Sao Paulo for 19th December. Hot news from the route can be found, as always, in my my travel log - if only I'll have access to the Internet. Please keep your fingers crossed for the success of this new solo expedition! :)



Nov 11, 2018 12:00 AM Globetrotter's Meeting in Rzeszów

Globetrotter's Meeting in Rzeszów I attend 34-th Annual Meeting of Polish Globetrotters in Rzeszow - Southeast Poland. As usually we have slide shows from all over the world, lectures and - first of all a chance to meet old friends - the top Polish travellers. The weather is sunny, and I have a good time. My two presentations about the East Tibet and Porto Santo Island were appreciated....



Nov 04, 2018 12:00 AM Giving a lectures

Giving a lectures As usual between two travels I work hard to save money for the next voyage. But sometimes it is for me also the pleasure to go to the well known club or library to meet the people who since years are my fans and the old friends. Recently I went to give a lecture about the East Tibet in Lubin - in South Poland. Can you imagine? - they are inviting me to come every year since 9 years!
It was really great event - also for me - to speak there to more then 200 travel enthusiasts...

Oct 27, 2018 12:00 AM Barcelona to Warsaw flight delayed again

Barcelona to Warsaw flight delayed again It was 9 am when I disembarked the ship in Barcelona port. The walk in the rain to Plaza Espana (for the airport bus 46) took me 1 hour 10 minutes. Rain, rain...
After check- in they announced that the flight will be delayed due to the bad waather.. I will possibly miss the train connection Warsaw - Gdansk - this could be the first unpleasant accent of this great journey...



Oct 26, 2018 12:00 AM New friends frm the ship...

New friends frm the ship... Day at sea - we are turning back to Barcelona. But we still have a sunny weather - the rain stayed back in Italy...
Day at see gives me always tha chance to meet new people and to find new friends. I found at least one - Alberto - the passionate traveller from Asturias. He was talking in Spanish with the waiter explaining his journeys. I joined them and - I have a new friend who visited more than 100 countries. He visited all seven continents, so I invited him to our 7 Continents Club! - see our picture on the deck....
In the afternoon I met a young journalist from Chile - he was surprised, that I know his country so well. He asked many questions i was impressed - it is the rare case that you meet somebody who completed 12 round- the-world voyages, travelling alone...
Eduardo - the pianists was playing for me the last time this evening...
It is the time to pack my backpack...



Oct 25, 2018 12:00 AM I found my love in Portofino....

I found my love in Portofino.... Do you remember that old song? Here I am! . Portofino, where I landed today is very picturesque and cozy place with miniature port squeezed between rocky hills. It is already off season so I did not experience a crowd of tourists in the narrow streets and squares. Beautiful, beautiful... It could be paradise for the painters. For the best view it is worth to climb the street to San Giorgio church. Brown Castle is even higher and I went there, but sorry, they charge 5 euro for the entrance... So I decided to take a long coastal walk to Santa Margarita Ligure (much bigger coastal resort) and onward to Rapallo. Views are great with some sunshine but the weather is changing. You can also reach S.Margarita by boat paying 7 euro...



Oct 24, 2018 12:00 AM Piombino, Italian Etruscan Coast

Piombino, Italian Etruscan Coast Today we are docking in Piombino. Piombino - the big industrial city and port doesn't have the charm of Portovenere. After disembarking local authorities offered free transfer by bus from the dock to the city. Then you can visit the museum, two churches and the streets of the typical Italian town. The best view of the town is from a little peninsula closing the tiny, old port - they built there nice promenade with a lighthouse at the end. The islands of Elba (closer) and Corsica (on the horizon) are easili visible from this place. A lot of people from the ship paid for the excursions to go from Piombino to Siena, Florence an other well-known cities. But the prices are high - 50-60 euro per person... So I have here the day at leisure, using free internet offered by tourist office and walking in the sun along the coast. Tomorrow we will be in Portofino - another little jewel, but probably without the free internet... :)



Oct 23, 2018 12:00 AM Climbing in Portovenere

Climbing in Portovenere Do you know the picturesque coast of Italian Cinque Terre? I was walking through the western part of this region years ago. Today our ship is anchoring in the eastern end of Cinque Terre - just near La Spezia. They use tenders to bring us to the coast.
Little Portovenere has San Pietro church on the rocky cape, Doria castle and a row of colour houses along the coastal promenade. Forget about free wi-fi!
But the highlight of the place is the view from San Pietro to the 300-m high coastal cliff.... Well marked, but difficult trail goes up the cliff and onward to the next Cinque village. I started to climb at 11.30 am . There were few view points with partly limited visibility. But the best view is from the summit with the antennas. I reached this point at 12.00.
The view was just fantastic! But good hiking shoes are required, especially when you go down... Great, sunny day! New, cozy place!



Oct 22, 2018 12:00 AM Ajaccio in the sun!

Ajaccio in the sun! Bon jour! I have been before to Ajaccio, Corsica, but then the weather was not as good as today. We had absolutely perfect lighting on approach to the picturesque port today. The tricky thing id to find the tourist office here - it is located in the second parallel street to the coast - turn right after the city hall. Once there - you have free and quality internet available - just click the Orange network. ..
No, I do not pay for the expensive tour offered by the ship.... 45 euro is not acceptable! Do it on your own! I had in Ajaccio enough time to stroll the narrow streets of the old town, to see the house where Napoleon was born, and to take the promenade along the coast. I speak French again! But tomorrow we will be already in Italy - my Italian is very weak! :)



Oct 21, 2018 12:00 AM Menorca in one day...

Menorca in one day... It is my first day on Menorca Island. Sunny day. There are two great naturel ports on two ends of the island. We docked in Mao - Mahon where the nice old town is located on the impressive cliff. I saw the town and than took a public bus for 5,10 euro to Ciutadella - some 50 kms away. On the way there is a chance to see three little townships in the interior an the highest mountain with the monastery on the top. Just take the front seat!
Ciutadella also has an internal port, but it is like a picturesque miniature of Mahon -"well worth to see. The old town here with a cathedral is even jicer than this one in Mahon! Great excursion just for 10,20 euro - those guys from the ship charge 50 euro!
I returned to the ship in the late afternoon. I like laid-back, sleepy Menorca. The only problem is that free wi-fi is not available....
