Brno, July 2015. Wandering around the streets of lovely Brno under the heat of the sun, we were looking for something to do indoors. It was either hiding from the sun, or complying to my friends’ request to rent a SEGWAY. Yakes, a segway. I hate those things. That’s how we’ll all end up […]
What’s your story? They were all dead
Burning wings: meeting Icarus in Crete
“You see, in the end he burnt his wings and died” he said. My eyes were mesmerized by the sun, setting on the mountain, colouring the landscape in gold, as I was standing behind Icarus. We seemed to be watching the same thing, him an I: the skyline over the mountains; the sunshine; the […]

Not that I’m the only one getting this feeling from life in Bratislava, but it’s been bothering me for some time now. […]
What’s your story?
