Soup of the holy spirit

(Listen to the music while reading blog post.) I’d bet in a big amount that you don’t taste very often the soup of the holy spirit. Well, neither do I. But in the big-fat-easter-fuss I had a chance to try it. I am not religious (I have my own eccentric ideas of our world) and […]

Climbing Pico mountain, Azores

(Listen to the music while reading blog post.) ‘Because it’s there.’ said Edmund Hillary when he was asked why he had climbed Mount Everest. I could provide you with a similar answer for the question why I climbed Mount Pico. Although it’s significance in the history of mankind is obviously indifferent, it’s outstanding for me […]

Miracles of the Azores

(Listen to the music while reading blog post.) The Azores. This name still sounds exotic enough to my ears (and the Portuguese name even more, the Açores), although I have had enough time to get used to this. A couple of times, day by day, I pronounce it just for myself, when I simply love […]

About volunteering – what crazy wind blew me to the middle of the Atlantic?

(Listen to the music while reading blog post.) My attitude regarding travelling has changed a lot for the last years because of different experiences. I used to be an employee with just a couple of days for going to holiday, so my original style of travel was the usual let’s-go-somewhere-and-see-as-many-sights-as-we-can-just-to-return-home-more-tired-than-before-holiday.
