Czaplickitravel – we are a family who loves to explore: travel addicts Michał & Gosia, our curious kids Laura & Bernard, and Michal’s sister Monika, who provides webmastering. 

If you are interested in historic destinations – travelling to places where the powerful and famous lived and died, film destinations – getting to know more about the places seen in the movies, short and thrilling city trips, discovering amazing nature or delicious culinary destinations – this blog is a place for you :-D. 

We love to discover cultural and natural heritage, travel on and off the beaten track. Whenever we have time, we share here all the treasures we can find. Michal visited 90 countries around the globe, travelled over 1 200 000 kilometers. He is still looking for new places to visit and now show it to our kids. Czaplickitravel has organised trips for our friends and family, always trying to go beyond wikipedia, bringing to light some of the magnificent places you probably never heard of. If you want to know more about us, you can find our story here. Have fun!
