English is not our native language – excuse all mistakes. We try hard not to make any, but still :)
Podróżniccy.com were born in 2011. In September we celebrated our first anniversary and in November year of blog’s existence on this platform. Idea itself was created couple years back, mostly due to passion for travelling. We were in many countries – USA, Singapore, Thailand, Chile, Ghana, Georgia, Macedonia, Malaysia, Oman, Portugal or Russia – those are some of them.
In February 2012 we started our trip called “Exploring Witkacy” to Sri Lanka, Australia and later to Saint Petersburg. We are fascinated by life od Stanisław Ignacy Witkiewicz, who almost a 100 years ago, together with his friend Bronisław Malinowski, took the same road. First they reached Ceylon, where for the first time he saw tropics and jungle, then they went to Australia, where he saw Aborigens and wanted to commit suicide. When he learned about the breakout of First World War he returned to Europe and spend couple years in Russian army where he also discovered life of pre-revolution Petersburg. After those experiences he became Witkacy.
