View over fields towards Hoher Bogen


Hi, my name is Florian. I’ve started this blog-project in 2019 out of sheer curiosity, for the purpose of language learning (Slovak and English in particular, my native language is German) and for enhancing my writing skills.

But I also had the intention to create a platform for small stories with the focus on personal development and social activities.

I visited Eastern and Western Europe a great deal the recent years, and some of my experiences there deliver a scaffold for the core areas of this website.

However, this blog should not be taken for an actual “travel blog”. It has a narrow spectrum in this regard and I’ll try to bring the focus on Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Poland, i.e. countries where a West Slavic language is spoken.

In addition, I include certain topics about Engineering (I am a mechanical engineer by trade) that have a noteworthy background-story or offer just practical value. Especially this brings the most fun to write about, but I may outsource that completely to other websites at some point in the future.

For the reason I mentioned in the first paragraph please note that this is a mixed language blog. Entries will for the most part be available in English, technical articles will be available in German only. Future articles will be published occasionally in Slovak or Polish (hopefully).

This website has no commercial purpose, and I make no profit from it.
