Where have I been?

Have I been a bit quiet? That’s because I’ve been here:

Playing in the river In Wisla

And enjoying sights like these:

View from Skrzyczne

And also spending time with our nephew:

Beniamin's eyes

More photos on Flickr, as usual.

Last week I did about 1000km of driving in Poland – the first time I’d driven on the “wrong” side of the road, too. Bit of an unfortunate start to the break, since I managed to leave Ola’s passport at home. Still, it all came together in the end.

Whilst away I also (finally!) read most of The Long Tail, and all of a really great, fun and highly readable book called the The 13 1/2 Lives of Captain Bluebear, which I thoroughly recommend.

I also explored a bunch of interesting new music on the iPod via the Song by Toad podcast, which is worth a listen. Episode 8 is stuffed with new music which I love (Emmy the Great, Monkey Swallows the Universe), Episode 5 has some other cool stuff (Alex Cornish, Thunderegg), and Episode 6 is just hilarious.

Back to it. Service to be resumed shortly.

  2. Hooray! Great to have you back.
    Glad you had a wonderful time and managed to avoid too much technology.
    Looking forward to more of your ramblings 🙂 and now I have *another* book to add to my “want to read” list on FB.

    Nice pics… you’ve got me thinking that I should try and learn how to take better pics of Grace

  4. Thanks for the comments. Chris, interesting to hear we have the Poland thing in common 😉

    I managed to avoid technology for the most part, except for an adventure installing Polish Windows XP on a UK-bought (and licensed) laptop… necessitating re-activation… on the phone… all rather “interesting”!

    Dale, I have a load more photos to upload. We did a little “photoshoot” with Beniamin on the last day so I had some helpers to keep him smiling… but ultimately I wasn’t happy with a lot of the shots – luckily I only have to pick out the good ones 🙂

  5. Thanks for the link Andy. I wondered about posting Episode 6 at all, it had all gone so downhill by the end. I’m sort of glad I did by now, but I had my doubts!
