In the Royal Baths

Łazienki park is the "The Royal Baths" if translated, that said, there is no bath there for the public to enjoy, but it is however still a lovely place for a stroll and on weekends in summer it can be heaving with people. They also like to have events each year to celebrate the space that is there. This year they have been doing the Royal Łazienki Music Festival which has had numerous contributors. Last weekend I got to see Genso (Japanese drumming) and Marcin Masecki (remixed Mazurkas, a tradiational song in Poland). Luckily I saw it before the storm went crazy :D

More River Time.

This time of the year it can be lovely to get out and enjoy the long twilight and deep sunsets. I have probably been along the Vistula (Wisła) river a hundred times, whether jogging, biking or strolling as I was doing on this occasion. It is such a nice thing to have a wild river in the middle of town. I just wish people Poles and the international contingent would keep their bits clean, that means the cigarette butts, bottles and bottle tops. It really is a simple request.... no? So, instead of seeing the rubbish, hopefully you will enjoy the pretty part.

Sentimental Setenil de las Bodegas

Setenil de las Bodegas, is a funny little town. It is built, in part, into the rock face with some of the houses and businesses being based in the rocks. It can of course mean that some places look really dank and wet, while others look super impressive. It was a fun town to drive in as many of the streets were just the size of our hire car! Scary but fun at the same time.










One of the constantly wet looking houses.

A bar is always a welcome addition.


The surrounding hillsides, reminds me a lot of Australia and somehow Switzerland!
