When I was still in high school, I belonged to a youth association that allowed me to travel around Poland and other European places to participate in exchanges with young people from other countries. I made life long friendships and even now, 17 or so years later I still keep...
I am not sure if I even mentioned it, but I was quite impressed by Argentina, its culture, food, people and obviously landscapes. I was lucky to discover many places from the north to south, but somehow I never (during the whole two years of living and traveling in South...
When you hear stories about something more that fifty times from different people, you get to te point that you really want to find out what the fuss is about. For two years of my life in Chile and traveling around South America I have heard from many people, mostly...

It is not magic. It is not something special. And it is not difficult. It is the way of life. That’s what I always tell all the people attending my workshops on mindfulness. As some of you might already know, I am a counsellor specialized (amongst others) in mindfulness, but...

From my first days of living in South America I was listening to some stories from other people how beautiful Bariloche is. They admired the landscapes, food, people and most surprisingly chocolate. Since my curiosity would never be satisfied if I did not go there and see and taste it...
