My name is Ania. I grew up in Poland and now live in Washington, DC – and travel when I get a chance. This is not a travel blog. I don’t intend to review restaurants, recommend hotels, or outline sample itineraries. Lonely Planet does it better. Instead, the idea for this blog is to be a lapidarium of sorts – a place to store fragments of travel-inspired thoughts, experiences, and images, plus an occasional rant.
My life spans a bi-continental existence between Poland and the U.S. – well, mostly the latter recently. But I retained some fairly un-American traits that prompt me to write this blog:
1) I know geography beyond 100 mile radius of where I live;
2) I speak more than one language;
3) I don’t consider something that happened more than 10 years ago ancient history.
I like to think about travel as a 4D experience, a space-time thing. It’s not just about what’s around me but how what I’m looking at, listening to, and tasting has been shaped. It’s not about how far I go – sometimes the most intriguing finds are right next door. And I hope at least occasionally I manage to capture something about all those places worth sharing here (and on Flickr). Unless otherwise indicated, all photos on this blog are my own.
