My first program written in C - strategic game similar to Panzer General 2. Idea was to create alternative story of Nazi invasion on Poland.

3. Travelling

I like traveling a lot. Especially mountain hiking and riding by bicycle to some distant places. I do it mainly during holidays, because I'm too lazy during rest of the year.

Here are some photos and diaries from some of the more extreme expeditions.

3.1. Peru - August 2010

Another year, another continent to explore. This time I've chosen something, which mixes some exotic cultural aspects of South America and beautiful mountains Andes.

Read the story of my trip (Polish) or watch two galleries: one composed of photos by Ilona and Aśka and another done with my phone (I lost my bigger camera on the way).

3.2. Nepal - October 2008

One of my dreams for a long time was to visit the highest mountains on Earth. At some point of my life I was finally able to afford it, so I just did it. The trip was together with travel agency Horyzonty.

This time there is a gallery of photos with our struggling through Himalaya.

3.3. Europe and Morocco - September 2006

After you get a full-time job you must hurry travelling to see many places. So I decided to try out the Interrail ticket to visit some southern countries of Europe and part of Africa.

You can go directly to the image gallery or to a day by day report from the trip (in Polish).

3.4. Romania - July 2005

This time I wanted to take a closer look at east-southern part of Carpathian Mountains and I decided to have a little trip to Romania.

3.5. Tatra Mountains - August 2004

Some time ago I was very inspired by some people's trip to Norway and I wanted to see it for myself. Now my own journey is finished and I my admit that it was great.
