"KRAKOW-HOLIC!!!" luigi_pl's Profile

GETTING INTO THE SWING OF KRAKOW

someone has said in the past that "there's no life out of Krakow!" well... when it comes to population it's false, because there wouldn't be any other cities in the world. but when it comes to real life (not...just existance) it is the holiest truth!!!

living here is like one big festival. beauty, party, concerts, music, cinema, theatre, dance, singing... loving... everything!

it's not so huge like tokyo,
it's not so famous like paris,
it's not so old like damascus,
and there's no so much monument like in rome...but...definiately...
Krakow is the (!!!) beautiful. this adjective is reserved for Krakow :-) it's so authentic. there... you won't record touristic theatre like in many others cities.

countries and regions of my interest

well. i love to travel to arabian countries. this fascitation was inaugurated by my trip to egipt in 2003. actually egipt was my childish dream. its legend of pyramides and mummies and magic of palm groves and desert attracted me as long as i remember. i'd like to know whether fatamorgana is real or not and what is like to ride a camel at sands of sahara. my love of egypt overflows to other countries of the middle east.

generally, since childhood, i have been gone on fairytales of one thousand and one nights. it's full of magic and our hidden dreams, colors, sands and adventures.

i like very much central and eastern europe as well. in my opinion western part of the old continent is like OVERUSED CONDOM . it's still the most popular tourist destination but it doesn't give me as much satisfaction as central&eastern part. it's so beautiful and not over-explored. i don't want to go where everybody else does. you can hear paris, london, rome... paris, london, rome... paris, london, rome... all the time. doesn't it boring? all yahoos go there so you have to as well. no! you don't have to! that's not ambitious. by the way, it's too expensive and it lost its magic and charm. krakow still has all of its glory and undamaged beauty. i love it!

my top 10 dream destinations

MARROCCO
the oldest arabian kingdam, red marrakesh- pearl of desert.

YEMEN
that's the country where all arabians came from. the cradle of arabic culture

CUBA
colorful and exploding of life latin-american country ruled by regime of fidel castro. i would be lovely to get there before the change

CHINA
the worlds oldest civilasation, giant with fast growing economy, getting modern but still undeveloped, army in xian and beautiful oriental villages

ROMANIA
transsylvania- the land of dracula, lovely villages and beautiful towns

UKRAINE
lviv- krakow of the east. used to be polish but now it's ukrainian. cultural capital of ukraine.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA
so exotic, wild, wild, wild,

RUSSIA
moscow of contrasts- wealth and poverty, st petersburg- winter palace, by transsybierian rail through the sybieria to the bajkal lake

TANZANIA
the real africa, africa you've always dreamt about. wild nature, kilinajaro, spicy zanzibar and ''hakuna matata!'' (=don't worry!)
