Sometimes, pictures tell more than written stories. Enjoy some of photos from various moments of my life, arranged in different galleries. Enjoy viewing them!


Spending time with Mum

IMG_3498


Sadly in November 2017, my Dad passed away. Clearly, this was a very sad and traumatic experience for the family. In order to honour Papa, and spend time together with Mom, we decided to go for a retreat to Karpacz in western Poland. We also made some side trips to towns in the Czech Republic and Germany. Here are some pictures from the trip

Dhaka, my love!

Many would not consider Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh to be a nice city. It may be huge, overwhelming and can definitely be messy. This being written, I find this megacity to be full of character and positive vibe. Here are some pictures of Dhaka from my recent walk around the city. Enjoy

Rohingya refugee camps in southern Bangladesh

IMG_3081


In November 2017, I had a chance to visit Bangladesh again. Given my line of work, and the ongoing humanitarian crisis happening in Myanmar and Bangladesh, the main focus of the visit was visiting the Rohingya refugee camps in southern part of Bangladesh (Cox’s Bazar area). 

The refugee crisis in Bangladesh is one of the most significant one that the humanity faces in 2017. The challenges are complex and overwhelming. All of us need to do much, much more to deliver, or not to disappoint those who need our attention.

Here are the links to the pictures from the camps, and here from the helicopter ride from Cox’s Bazar to Dhaka.

November in Sri Lanka

So I had a chance to go to Sri Lanka for the second time. This time, I went there to participate in a training, but also, had a chance to have a weekend off - a great opportunity to celebrate my birthday. Sri Lanka truly is a paradise, and I am very happy to have had a chance to visit again. Here are some pictures that you can see

A short visit to Europe to visit family in Nowy Sacz, but also my new house in Obidos. Also, making a short stopover in Helsinki and Poprad. Then a fast visit to Brussels. Finland, Poland, Slovakia, Portugal and Belgium in one go… See the pictures from the trip in this link (gallery will be updated constantly until the end of October). 

Autumn in Mongolia

September in Mongolia is special. It is not very cold yet, and it is still green and colourful - as autumn keeps on painting the leaves of trees in various colours. This gallery shows some pictures from Ulaanbaatar and places in the eastern part of the country - during my professional trip there. I indeed had a wonderful time!

Weekends trips with Tahir around Thailand

IMG_1996


As Tahir, my fostered younger brother is not allowed to move out of Thailand (his refugee status is not allowing him travelling out of the country at the moment), we are trying to ‘beat time’, by exploring various parts of Thailand during the weekends. Travelling the country (often off the beaten track) proves to be a wonderful way of learning the beauties of Thailand. This gallery keeps on expanding, as I add pictures there once a week. Do visit regularly, if you enjoy it!

Marawi displaced in the Philippines

The ongoing war (started in May 2017) in Marawi in southern parts of the Philippines has forced a staggering 400,000 flee to northern parts of Mindanao Island. The gallery shows some images of the lives of the those who have fled the conflict.

A really nice and relaxing weekend with Tahir in eastern side of Bangkok. Celebrating the arrival of 2017’s summer in the canals of this amazing city. Lots of wonderful colours, buildings and nature!
