We are an adventurous family of four living in Kolobrzeg, Poland. Our family is composed of my wonderful wife Ewa, our two cute and curious kids Janek (born 2004), and Marianna (born 2006), and me, Maciek. Ewa and I are both language teachers at our local high school. We live a fabulous but simple life which is focused around bringing our kids up responsibly, living well, and enjoying life. The money we earn as teachers funds our travelling which is our familys obsession. When travelling, we like meeting new people and discovering new cultures. When we visit a country we try to learn something about its history and do a bit of social studies by examining cultural differences . We enjoy delving into these new cultures and are fond of socialising and getting to know the people of the places we visit.
As a couple, and as a family, we are really into bike touring. Bicycling is our family’s preferred means of transportation on a daily basis (yes, even in the snowy months). We have organised a touring club and take our local students on long distance bike tours as well as ordinary sightseeing trips. We often travel long distances and love every minute of it. Our children have had some amazing adventures cycling all together as a travelling family.
We delight in being outdoors, having fun in front of a roaring campfire and sleeping in a tent under the starry skies. We are curious to see how others around the world live and we always encourage the people we meet to visit our happy home, Poland, to see how we live. Last but not least, we like the idea of house swapping with other families and are we going to try it soon. We will keep you posted!
