This is not really an event per se, but we support this initiative and thought you should too! Until the end of March, all six peaks of Warsaw, incl. Górka Szczęśliwicka and Kopiec Moczydłowski, will be conquered by the five brave young men who aren’t afraid to dream big. They have already started their preparations for this daunting task, but their goal isn’t so much the achievement itself, but raising awareness and money for the Rak’n'Roll charity. The organisation helps cancer patients get informed, raises money for advanced treatments and offers support for families of the patients. If you pay 5$, you can join the climbers to the basecamp and help them with the equipment. For 20 bucks, you can join them and become one of the ascensionists!
The Website (in Polish) has all the details, but we’ll keep you posted!
Have I been in the best sushi place in town? Maybe! Warsaw offers quite a lot when it comes to sushi options, but not everything is worth it. Until you visit Izumi sushi. There are four locations, but my visit was in Mokotow and the place is quite fancy, modern and bright, playing very well with the spacious interior – this can only mean that there is quality in this sushi! With two huge floors, the restaurant offers a rich menu, making your choice difficult. From singles pieces to sushi sets, salads and grilled dishes, expect to taste the finest fresh fish, carefully decorated on your plate.
