Railroad Coffee – szklarka BISTRO
Just north of the Czech Republic border and 70 kilometres east of the German border there lies a little town in Poland called Szklarska Poręba. Sojourning so far showing Szklarska Poręba. World famous for its incredible cross-country ski slopes, this place immediately warmed our hearts as we disembarked the train at its own railroad station ca...
Passing through
Sadness and happiness. That’s what we sometimes feel at the same time as we leave a place or site. Unlike usual travel, Sojourning in 2015 has been about passing through – places and sites. Usually setting this almost daily goal in our minds, we do everything we can to get there. The sadness has been inevitable, but not something we think about as ...
GR20
It was the night before and we struggled to fall asleep. Trepidation had mounted as we could not help but think about what the next 12 days and nights would hold on what we knew is known as the toughest trail in Europe. The GR20 (Grande Randonnée), Corsica’s long distance trail, is 200km long and traverses diagonally, over and through the rugged mo...
Journeying – Part 2
We are all on a journey. Each of our journeys have reasons behind them. The Apostle Paul had a reason behind his well-known Missionary Journeys. Christianity, the only religion in the world which places so much significance on places, largely has Paul to thank in its spread. The Apostle Paul has been one of the reasons for us embarking on our Sojou...
Victoria Lines
Britain has the Hadrian’s Wall. China has its Great Wall. Malta has the Victoria Lines. Stretching across the width of its main island, the Victoria Lines in Malta was built by the British army in the late 19th century along the edge of a natural escarpment to defend the island from invasion. Utilised in the Second World War, the Victoria Lines con...
Crossing Borders – Relationships Matter
The title gives it away – it’s all about relationships. Sojourning 2015  has enabled us to cross many international borders. Crossing borders has highlighted to us that these are based on prerequisites of permission, but underlined by a relationship between our own nation and that of the one(s) we pass through. So, using permissions as a backd...
Triglav
There is a tradition that exits that every Slovenian is expected to summit Triglav (2860m) at least once in their lifetime. The ‘conquering’ of this summit is usually celebrated in rather the most bazaar of ways. This cultural norm is underpinned by an inspirational active lifestyle value that most if not all Slovenian’s adhere too. It is no wonder...
Coffee Treat – the Cookie Factory
Zagreb, Croatia’s capital and city of blue, is well known for the invention of the cravat and home to the very first telephone conversation. Today, Zagreb is known for its incredible coffee culture. With café’s dotted all over the city, each Saturday at midday, people enjoy their favourite cup of gold at their favourite spot while they people watch...
Eden?
“I wonder what Eden must have been like?” was one question that came across our minds as we ran through the popular Plitvice National Park, central Croatia. A UNESCO World Heritage site and most visited of all of Croatia’s National Parks, Plitvice boasts incredible scenery that embodies raw Creation in its clear blue lakes and unique travertine roc...

Coffee revelations – Coffee House Patmos
Situated in the Dodacanese complex of islands, Eastern Greece, the island called Patmos boasts something rather unique, small and what one may call idyllic in coffee terms. Finding Coffee House Patmos, started and owned by entrepreneur Manolhs Isihos, was revealed to us by doing nothing other than wondering the streets of the port town of Skal...
Mythical Mountain
There’s something about a mountain. We don’t quite know what, but there’s something mysterious about mountains that never cease to amaze. Maybe it’s the awe one feels when looking at them, or maybe it’s the sense of wonder standing on top of one looking down. Mount Olympus is such a mountain – mythical in more than one sense of the word. Mount Olym...
