About Me

We are now in Oz after two amazing years of traveling Europe in our home built plane. We met many fantastic people who we are proud to call friends and have gained a much better understanding of the similarities and differences between the cultures of the different European states as well as the history and geography that have lead to these differences. We enjoy meeting people with similar interests to ourselves and learning more about other cultures. Please let us know if you're going to be in Queensland and would like to catch up for a meal and a chat.

Mazury Residence Airpark in Gizycko, Poland

We love airparks.  We go to look at them all, as we love the idea of living on an airfield.  This airpark is particularly Polish / Eastern in design: the airstrip isn't in the centre of the airpark, it's actually on the side.  This is because the customers of airparks in the east tend to be people who like to watch planes taking off, rather than people who fly themselves, which seems very strange to us. We were a bit concerned when we landed that we wouldn't be able to take off again because of the large amount of water on the runway and the long grass, but it was all fine, I think the wet runway is a planning issue, as you can see from the maquette of the park it's down a hill, I'm sure some ditch digging will fix this.


The maquette, you can see the grass landing strip really well
The houses are really interesting construction: concrete with a special polystyrene block with plaster coverage.
