A post for dear Belarussians: my Minsk impressions and tips about Georgia

A post for dear Belarussians: my Minsk impressions and tips about Georgia

A trip to Minsk to 34MediaDay appeared to be quite enlightening for me. Even though I am a frequent traveler and try not to let the stereotype squeeze into my mind, there was something to discover for me. And something to apologize for. I really felt like apologizing for not understanding how close the Belarussians are to me and all Ukrainians. It was so worth going there, and I want to come back. You know why?

A short escape to Karlovy Vary

A short escape to Karlovy Vary

If you are coming to Karlovy Vary, you must be either having problems with digestion or looking for the real peace (and boredom) inside. Or, as it happened to me, you can be visiting friends, who settled down there. Because of those lovely people I decided to spend a small part of my vacation in one the biggest towns of Czech Republic with 50.000 people living there.  The town itself is really toy-like. Surrounded by mountains, oozing with mineral waters, it used to host many celebrities from Giacomo Casanova and Otto von Bismark to Leo Di Caprio. The only time when Karlovy Vary loses its

5 + 1 Reasons to Love Vilnius

Here is the story about how passionate Chris Potter’s performance of “Viva Las Vilnius” piece (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSzm1OI-Di8) suddenly made me check out the Wizz Air website, find the tickets for around 70 euro here and back, buy them, and go to the Lithuanian capital. One friend of mine said, I should have traveled to any other place, because Vilnius could be similar to a lot of places I’ve been too, but I don’t regret about my decision at all. There are several reasons…

Storia Di Un Grande Amore: Torino, Part 1

Writing about my sunny days in Torino while it’s raining in Tbilisi is just perfect. If I were in Piedmont’s capital now, I’d go to Mulassano, order a portion of bicherin to drink it atthe bar counter, and watch people passing by at Piazza Castello…

Italy: Perks of Having Local Friends. Part 1, Rome

Hi everyone! I’m writing this in a very friendly and polite manner, but in my head I am yelling «CIAO PAZZI!» and wave a piece of pizza in my hand. After one week long business trip to Berlin, which feels like home since a long time, I finally managed to fulfill my childhood dream and traveled to Italy.

Istanbul: Never Boring, Always Special

People come to Istanbul for many reasons – some for shopping only, some for culture, some for “check! been! done!”, some for chasing opportunities in this rapidly growing metropolis. Not sure if I have my main reason. Twice I came here for big football (and it was very successful), once for sea and fishbread at Eminönü station only, and this time my main reason was EMITT, a big international tourism fair, where I was representing… Georgia, here you are right.

German Media in Pictures: 18+

As promised, I gonna tell you something about German media landscape. Probably not those interesting facts about media market development after 1945, but some peculiar things. Like – they like trolling each other. Here you see a facade of TAZ (Die Tageszeitung) in Berlin. Keeping in mind that f(oes)ellow-colleagues from ideologically different Axel-Springer publishing house are watching this facade daily, the TAZ-people put such a nice composition on the wall:
