All our friends know that we love surfing. During summer months we are spending time doing only that, unless there is now waves. Here are some videos from those days
Two weeks ago we went to Governors Island which went thru major transformation since our last visit. New slide for kids, hills and picnic area are new addition on the island. East River ferry got rebrand to nyc ferry and more streamlined, now it’s easy to get from Brooklyn Queens to the island during the weekends.

Days passes by so quickly, we just had spring and summer and we are already in 2017. Last year was quiet, we did some longer and shorter trips and now looking at the pictures I must say it was pretty good year!

Yesterday we went to see Krakow’s royal castle unfortunately place is close on Mondays after November and we just had a chance to see it from outside. I haven’t been there for a long time hover place still looks humongous and nicer than ever. Here are some pictures from yesterday hope you will like it the way we did.
At this time of year usually we are going back to our roots to spend time with our family. I will be posting images daily from our trip. To show you how holiday season looks in Eastern Europe. These images were taken last night how you can see place is pretty magical.
Cold months are our “museums/galleries season” .. and it’s been long time since we visited Guggenheim museum which itself is such a amazing building (as well as other museums from the Guggenheim Foundation in Venice, Bilbao, and Abu Dhab, see here). Through his daycare, Lukas knows who Pablo Picasso is and we were happy to see some of his paintings (once Lukas painted something funny at home and he said that Picasso made him do it:)) This time Agnes Martin, an American abstract painter had her exhibition.
