My Travel Friends: Moi przyjaciele w podróży

As well as running this travel blog, I have been a full time tourist and travel writer for the last 14 years and along the way, I made a lot of friends. I only like real people with real honest blogs. As such, these are my travel friends from this journey, inside or outside Poland. If you are  a friend of mine, or simply want to meet up and not tell lies, then get in touch and we can connect.

Taiwanese Sex bomb and friend Mika, and I touring Gdansk…

Ikimasho – Justin Egli is a pure hearted melter from Bangor in Northern Ireland. But his skateboard and whackpack belong on the streets of Tokyo where Justin writes about Halloween death bands, sex kitchens and anything that goes against the flow of what buck eejits class as a “normal lifestyle”. The lad often shouts “Ikimasho!” at passers by.

Joao Leitao – These days I estimate I have been travelling full time for 10 years of my 37, having spent 14 years away from my native land (Northern Ireland) so it’s hard and arrogant of me to get impressed by other blogs. But out of all the travel blogs I have encountered, Joao’s is the most robust and the best. Please visit his site!

Josh Gajewski – Website of traveller, writer, novelist and journalist Josh Gajewski. Josh is also based in Poland and we often meet for drinks.

Karolina Kokosz – Sadly my Pomeranian based friend Karolina asked me to delete her blog and Instagrams from my site, but she is worth following. She helped me plan my tours to Holy Pelplin and the Zaspa Murals.

Kielbasa Stories – Chris shares 9 years worth of sausage stories.

Kyle in Kraków

Laura McCoy – Northern Irish lady with a passion for travel, volunteering and who has spent time living in Chisinau, Moldova.

Life in a Rucksack – Top notch Northern Irish girl Abbi Morrison writes with passion and soul on her long running website, Life in a Rucksack.

Mateusz Kulewicz – My friend Mateusz, who is also a vice king of Scholandia Province in the country of Krolestwo Dreamlandu has this excellent blog.

Mika On The Road – My Taiwanese friend Mika toured Gdansk with me in 2016. We cycled and roomed together and she now writes, cycles and bathes passionately from a soul so delicious, you’d lick her hair for breakfast in the blink of an eye.

Natalie Denton – My friend Natalie who I worked with at Bournemouth University, iCreate and Apple has a great writing service with some cool clients.

Notes from Poland

Ola Mueller’s Travels – My travel friend Ola Mueller backpacks 150 countries, with a twist – her aim is to lie to as many dorm buddies as she can.

Poland Travel Guide – An excellent Polish travel guide by David, which goes into great detail of all parts of Poland.

Tczew Foto Blog – An excellent photo blog by on the historic town of Tczew, Poland.

Travelling Claus – Superb real life travel blog by my friend Claus, a man who works hard, relaxes with a beer, gets passionate about cycling, has travelled extensively all over the world and always has time for a beer and a football match. Top lad!

Twisted LadyBug – Romanian expat blogger living in Krakow, Poland, since 2011. Sharing life experiences about life in Poland and travels.

We are Charmed by the Simple – Excellent Polish artistic sharing page from my friend Marta based in Poland.

Polish Football Blogs
As a keen football fan and groundhopper, I run a series called Śmieszne Historie o Piłce Nożnej w Polsce where I talk about my football experiences in Poland and about Poland. My first ever Northern Ireland victory was against Poland (in February 1991) and my first ever Northern Ireland away match was to Poland (in March 2005). Here are some excellent football blogs about Poland:
