DAY 23: center for homeless in WROCLAW and on the road to PRAGUE…VIDEO


Digital StillCameraIt was time to say goodbye to Wroclaw after amazing time here… When I first planned the route, Wroclaw wasn’t on the list but I am so happy that I decided to visit this vibrant and active city. Digital StillCameraDigital StillCameraOn our last morning there we went to see a center for homeless people that is run by a big non profit association that has many centers around Poland. We spoke to Olek, who was very busy but he took some time to tell us about their work. He was running a computer lab where they have IT course for their residents. We didn’t have time to see much more of the center but we stayed in touch and I am hoping to see Olek again in near future. The association is

St Brother Albert Aid Society

and it has been helping people without home for more then 30 years. Here is the link to their website Digital StillCameraLater we picked our stuff in Adrian’s flat and we said goodbye to our bed 😀 We went to train as it was getting dark and I knew we won’t be able to get to Prague that day. But I was hoping to get as near as possible. We started with regional train, then we tried to hitchhike in a small place outside of Wroclaw, that didn’t work out so we took few other trains stopping in small places as I didn’t have enough money to pay for full tickets. Here are few photos from our stops on the way… Digital StillCamera Digital StillCamera IMGP1416 IMGP1418 IMGP1417 In one of them called Swardzow Wroclawski I recorded these two videos:

Asking for more money 😛

Review of the trip so far

At the end we manage to get as far as Bystrzyca Klodzka, a small town near the border with Czech republic. Digital StillCameraDigital StillCameraIMGP1344After wondering around looking for a spot to sleep as it was cold, we get back to train station as the waiting room was opened. It wasn’t heated but we still manage to sleep in a sleeping bag on a bench… IMGP1346 Tomorrow we have continued to Prague…

DAY 22: WROCLAW-visit to Ostoja and their center for kids with special needs


Our host Adrian used to volunteer in Ostoja therapy center as a music therapist.

Digital StillCamera Digital StillCameraWe went there in early afternoon and on the way we stopped in a park nearby where Evelyn chased the birds and ducks and again like in Berlin she had a short swim in a cold water of an almost fully frozen lake. She was quick to get out and continue running around happily…

Ostoja has different centers and I got a contact from a girl that works in a therapy center for kids with special needs.

Digital StillCameraMargarida was very kind to take some time to show us around. They have different types of therapy for kids and we had a chance to see the dog therapy room and talk to a lady that was working there with a 12yr old kid.

Digital StillCameraDigital StillCameraThe dogs are specially trained, they have soft fur which is great for touch sensitivity of kids. With each kid they have an individual approach depending on their needs.

Digital StillCamera Digital StillCameraShe took us to other rooms, one of them was a stimulation room with music and light features. Margarida was trained in Portugal and this is her second time in Ostoja where she first volunteered few years ago.

Digital StillCameraDigital StillCameraEvelyn was all this time playing with the dogs outside and she really enjoyed it… they were sad when she was leaving…

It was great to see this center and everything they do there. I didn’t have time to visit their center for adults, but maybe some other time.

Digital StillCameraDigital StillCameraLater that day we met with Adrian and few other guys. We had a beer in a cool studio apartment where our host made a nice bar 😀

DAY 21:WROCLAW- hangover and meeting with Majka from’ House of Peace’ :D


I spent all morning sleeping after a long night out.

Digital StillCameraDigital StillCameraDigital StillCameraWe went for a walk in the afternoon. I went to get some food in Bar Mewa where they serve food with reduced prices, so I had full meal for 8 zloti or 2 euro.

Digital StillCameraThen we went to same space where I watched documentary night before and there I met Majka and she works for House of Peace that has been active locally for last 5 years. Their main projects are focused on improving relations between different ethnic groups in Wroclaw Nadozde area.

They have been working a lot with young people in the community and she gave me as a present a music cd of a teenager hiphop band 😀

Digital StillCameraDigital StillCameraDigital StillCameraWroclaw is beautiful in the evening and I enjoyed walking around with Evelyn.

Day 20: WROCLAW..with Adrian around the city; WrocDoc at night


Digital StillCameraDigital StillCameraWe arrived very early to Wroclaw.

Digital StillCameraDigital StillCameraIt was 6am as we walked around town. Our host Adrian has worked the night shift so we met at 7.30am at his place. After few hours of sleep we went together to city center and I liked the architecture and colours…

Digital StillCameraDigital StillCameraThen he took us to a nice healthy food restaurant where we had great time together.

Digital StillCameraDigital StillCameraThey make excellent soups and vegetarian dishes and really good smoothies..

Digital StillCameraDigital StillCameraLater that night I went to see a documentary and there I met some of Adrian’s friends and we had interesting discussion after the film. It was a documentary about religion and science by Richard Dawkins and it served as a good base for debate. I wasn’t to impressed with the film itself as it seemed a bit too subjectively presented, but it still made some interesting points that were discussed afterwards.

After we went out for a drink as the organizer of WROC DOC Paul had a leaving party. Of course, few of us stayed for more then one and this resulted with my first hangover of the trip 😛

It was  7am when I came back to Adrian’s place…

DAY 19: POZNAN; walks and pancakes; late night train to WROCLAW…


Digital StillCameraWe spend our last day in Poznan in walks, relaxing time with our hosts and sharing some pancakes.

Digital StillCameraIMGP1340Late at night we took a train to Wroclaw and on the waz we got a message from our host Adrian in Wroclaw.

Even though I haven’t seen many people regarding my project, we had great time in Poznan and made new friends.
