Warsaw

Warsaw – From Ruins to Skyscrapers

October 1944, an order has been issued to erase a city from the surface of Earth. Issuing the order was Hitler, and the city to be destroyed was Warsaw. While a large part of it was demolished, it has luckily not been erased. Today, we can say the city rose from the ashes and became one of the fastest growing cities in Europe.

Krakow

Main Square, the Beating Heart of Krakow

Recently, we expanded our team, which led to a need for a bigger office. We moved part of our team to a new wing of the same building, but this time with a very special view.

That’s why today, we’ve decided to introduce you to this gorgeous place.

Taiwan

Taiwan – Not Quite China

In 1697 Taiwan’s pioneering explorer from the mainland China, Yu Yonghe, described it as an inaccessible, unvisited and barbaric land.

Madeira

Madeira – The Pearl of the Atlantic

Located in the Atlantic Ocean, nearly 1000 km south of Europe is a unique piece of land. The Madeira Archipelago, the subject of today’s post, is often called the “Hawaii of Europe”, and not without reason. This autonomous region of Portugal is actually closer to Africa than to the Old Continent. Its location and volcanic origin made it into a rocky land with some of the largest cliffs in Europe. Yet, its climate is very mild, with gentle Summers and fairly warm Winters. Madeira sounds like a land of contrasts, but it’s surprisingly harmonious. Let us take you on a journey around this special place, so you can see it for yourself.

It is typically associated with old buildings and stories of the past. However, Krakow is way more than just a dream destination for the history geeks. Something many people do not expect is its vibrant street art scene.
