    Bergen Marathons: Why I Haven’t Been Here for a While ;)

    Chasing after training sessions, good food, relaxation, and work didn’t leave me much time for writing. But I do have some personal successes to share! At the end of April 2024, I participated in the fantastic Bergen City Half Marathon, and at the beginning of June, I completed the Bergen Mountain Half Marathon. Just a year ago, I ran my first 5 km, and I never would have thought that I’d be able to complete the Bergen half marathon – known to be quite challenging due to its mountainous terrain. The most important thing I want to highlight is that anything is possible if it’s well planned. Preparing for a…

    My Journey to Healthier Hair #2 Diet

    Diet. Doesn’t this word sound like something we’d want to avoid at all costs? It brings to mind restrictions, sacrifices, and an unpleasant feeling that we have to give something up. But don’t be misled – it’s actually about something much more positive and constructive. Instead of talking about dieting, I prefer to focus on “rational eating.” Sounds better, doesn’t it? Our nutritional needs change with every stage of life. Proper nutrition isn’t about mindlessly stuffing ourselves but about consciously choosing what lands on our plates. Different periods in life require different nutrients. And what happens inside us directly affects how we look outside. That’s why it’s important to focus…

    My Journey to Healthier Hair #1 cosmetics

    The beginning of my journey with a thorough analysis of the cosmetics I use coincided with the period when I started struggling with hair loss. I quickly discovered that not only does dyeing have a negative impact on my hair, drying it out and contributing to hair loss, but daily products such as shampoos also have an adverse effect. I was surprised when I realized that most care products contain strong detergents, far from being neutral to our health. I’m talking not only about shampoos but also about body wash gels, and even those intended for intimate hygiene! Hidden Enemies in the Composition: SLS, SLES, and Others Especially SLS (Sodium…

    Why do I avoid eating bread nowadays?

    It’s a question I often hear, and sometimes it’s not easy to answer. I’ll be honest, I used to love bread 🙂 But not the bread you find on the commercial market today. I want to share my thoughts on this. Bread, as I remember it from over 40 years ago, was something special. It was the taste of real baking tradition, handmade, with a beautiful golden crust, full of aroma and a delicate crunch. Unfortunately, today’s bread is quite different from those days. So why don’t I eat modern bread? There are several reasons. Firstly, the bread produced today is the result of processes that make it less and…

    Safari in Tanzania – practical information

    We didn’t organize the safari ourselves; we purchased a package tour from a local agency that has been organizing safaris for years. The package included pick-up from our hotel in Zanzibar, a flight to Arusha, a driver with a jeep, 2 nights in a lodge (including breakfast and dinner), lunch during the safari, a visit to Tarangire National Park (approximately 6 hours), a visit to Ngorongoro Crater (approximately 7 hours), and a visit to a Maasai village located near our accommodation – the lodge. The organization of the entire safari was very efficient. Directly from the airport, we headed to Tarangire National Park, and by late afternoon, we were checked…

    Ngorongoro Crater – the only one of its kind in the world!

    Why? Because it’s the largest unbroken, uninhabited, and unaltered caldera on Earth. The crater was formed when a massive volcano erupted and collapsed 2-3 million years ago. It has a depth of 610 meters, and the crater floor spans 260 square kilometers. The floor of the crater lies at an elevation of 1,800 meters above sea level, and the Ngorongoro Crater is recognized as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa. It was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1978. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority, on behalf of the Tanzanian government, manages this protected area. Through the Ngorongoro Wildlife Conservation Act of 2009, the government imposed restrictions…

    Tarangire National Park – Tanzania

    During our entire trip to Tanzania, what impressed me the most was our 2-day safari on the Tanzanian mainland. Tarangire National Park is beautifully situated in the eastern part of Tanzania. It may not be as famous as Serengeti or Ngorongoro, but it has a lot to offer. It is primarily known for its numerous gigantic African baobab trees and herds of elephants. The name Tarangire comes from the river that flows through the park, the Tarangire River. The park covers a vast area, approximately 2,600 square kilometers. During our visit, we were fortunate to see a lioness hunting, a leopard – or rather a leopardess, African elephants, African buffalo,…

    Zanzibar Tales – Delicious Food, Beautiful Beaches, and Hakuna Matata :)

    We flew to Zanzibar in early September, a time when the tourist season is a bit quieter – read: not too crowded. The weather was fantastic, with daily temperatures hovering around 28 degrees Celsius. We rented an apartment in a two-story bungalow with a stunning terrace right by the ocean. The resort was located near Paje on the east coast, which was perfect for me, a sunrise enthusiast. During our two-week stay, we explored: Now, onto the food – it was delicious everywhere we went. We dined at our hotel’s restaurant, which boasted masterful cuisine. While there, we even had the chance to cook Zanzibar’s famous Urojo soup with the…
