I am Jonny Blair, a travelling Northern Irishman who first visited Poland in 2005. I grew up in Bangor, Northern Ireland in the 1980s and since my teens, I have backpacked to 151 countries (disputed or not) around the world, visiting all 7 continents in the process, working in numerous jobs along the way. In 2016, I was in Poland for the fifth time, and decided to stay due to circumstances that happened. Poland is one of my favourite countries from my long journey and it is a delight to live here.   more ...

Anthony Casey
I'm Anthony Casey. I was bored with the UK, struggling to find work in my own field as a freelance writer, journalist and editor, and wanted something new. So I came to Kraków, Poland.
