Writing this article in May with the fact in mind that the festival took place in March (better late than never..at least they say haha)

Since I live in Ireland I’ve been of course interested in attending to world known St.Patrick’s FestivalParade. Unfortunately last year I had to stay in bed with fever, but there was no doubt that parade in 2017 can’t be missed!

As a passionate photographer I wanted to get as close as possible so I did my research and stumble across website of the festival with option for press, news and freelancers as well to apply…


Today we went for a Photofest in Dublin which was happening in nice spaces of Crown Plaza Hotel.

The time of the event was from 10:00 to 17:00. Few people were quite sleepy in the morning but nothing what couldn’t fix a cup of coffee.
Around were couple of stands of local Irish brands, but not only (Canon, Fujifilm, ManFrotto, Nikon, …) and there were 2 main seminars from UK Olympus photographer Damian McGillicuddy about fashion portraiture photography.

Second presentation with topic ‘Drones in Ireland’ given by Ian Mac Mahon an aerial photographer for over thirty years and Ian Kiely.


Today it’s exactly 20 days from the arrival to Dublin, and I finally found some time to write about my first impressions. Most of the time was spent on getting to know the city, its system, basics and searching for accommodation, which brought to me memories from Paris — it’s really similar, almost impossible thing.
Dublin has kind of accommodation crisis. Most of the buildings wasn’t build for many people to fit in, very often you can see amazing looking, cute little buildings with only one or two floors.

After more than half a year in amazing Krakow in Poland it came time to move on. With my girlfriend Edyta we decided to move to Dublin in Ireland. Preparations for leaving were managed quite easily, flight was booked at the beginning of November.

It was 3.11.2015 — We had all day for final check and cleaning. It’s so cool that your life can fit in 2 bags or lets say in 30kg! …

Hi, its been a couple of months since I started with my first trip around Europe in style — see as much as possible and…


Of course it’s really hard to travel completely without money. But there are ways how to travel very cheap, it can give you freedom of moving where ever you decide.

I’ve chosen Couchsurfing as a way how to meet people, get to know their culture, experiences, travel stories and I found many good friends there.


The idea of change was born in the fall 2013. During the time when I lived in Plzeň, the beer capital city of Czech Republic. Plzeň became my home for nearly 5 years after I moved from my hometown Karlovy Vary — beautiful spa city on the west of CZ, but difficult to find a job and almost no cultural activities.
