Prespa, Elbasan

After returning to Ohrid (btw, the road between Skopje and Ohrid provides quite some views!) I hop back on my bike and cycle in the direction of Greece. I make a little stop on the way at Prespa lake, so peaceful and calm this time of the year… And I pick up a few apples from local gardens…

I reach Elbasan through snow (only a short part of the route, luckily for me), which makes me dream of warm Greece even more. The town is a short walk and it’s the mountains around that make it a worthy place to visit. I do try to enjoy the architecture but it’s quite depressing how it is left to rot…

Po powrocie do Ohrid (a trasa między Skopje a Ohrid jest miejscami bardzo malownicza!), wsiadam z powrotem na rower i ruszam w kierunku Grecji. Po drodze warto zrobić sobie przystanek nad jeziorem…

A very pleasant 1 week stopover on my way back from the United States… If somewhat cold (and cold it was indeed – it seems it was the coolest and the rainiest summer in 100 years, at least that’s what I was told by Western Islanders, those from the East seemed surprised, the two parts of the island tend to have a totally different kind of weather; and when it’s raining everywhere – seek shelter South of the glacier, it stops all the clouds)…

Which means there are lots of tourists everywhere (except for night hours… but they are surprisingly bright in summer) so forget about experiencing the nature all by yourself (unless you venture into the interior but then you need appropriate gear which I…

And now, for something completely different: a video documenting the last ever Woodstock Poland festival (and I say “the last one” because the next edition was renamed to “Pol’and’rock” and the future of the whole project is unknown) – the biggest free of charge open air music gig in the world. And probably the most beautiful one, too:) August 2017, Kostrzyn nad Odrą

Tym razem coś z zupełnie innej beczki: klip dokumentujący ostatni Przystanek Woodstock (ostatni, bo kolejna edycja została przemianowana na “Pol’and’rock” a przyszłość festiwalu w ogóle jest niepewna) – największą darmową imprezę muzyczną świata. I być może najpiękniejszą:) Sierpień 2017, Kostrzyn nad Odrą
