IMPORTANT: Polish passport protips

Tl;dr: Dual citizens, use your Polish passport when traveling to Poland. Anything else may mean unpleasant border surprises. Just got the below from the embassy. I’ll just summarize the (very!) important bits in English here: Poland is threatening inconvenience and possibly penalties like extra fees for Polish dual citizens who use their other passport to […]

Masha and the Bear

I just received an invitation to watch a neat CBC video from Filip Terlecki, one of the most prominent voices early on in PISK’s developmental years. I was initially wary of the lightsaber battle because that’s just been waaay overdone, but when I realized the metaphor behind it, it suddenly didn’t seem as bad. Watch […]

Here in Canada we had a tough winter this year and it seems that the cold weather won’t go away… or maybe I’m just too heated from spending a week in Costa Rica (blog post coming soon!). Thankfully in China in 2737 B.C, a leaf accidentally fell into a cup of boiled water and ended up inventing tea, a.k.a.

PISK Kaszuby Camping Trip

Many different things mark the end of summer in Canada. For some, it’s the annual ritual of shopping for textbooks, starting classes again. It’s getting a sweater out for those nights that are coming just a little  faster and becoming just a bit colder. It’s seeing that single red leaf on the ground and thinking; oh […]

When in Rome, do as the Canadians do.


When I was nine years old my family and I went on a trip to Florida. In the days leading up to the trip I remember begging my parents to go to Disney World which was, in my mind, the only purpose behind the entire state. I’d seen commercials, read about it, heard about it, Disney […]
