What is it like to be a translator and the best Christmas present ever!

Ever wondered what it’s like to be a translator?

Christmas spirit

Well I had the chance to test myself as one this Christmas and you know what? My brain is still buzzing in serious overdrive…

It really does not help being Polish and deciding to spend the rest of your life with an English man (only kidding!).

Taking the in-laws to Poland to meet my mum and dad was an amazing experience and everyone loved it. With the obvious help of a few shots of ice cold vodka everyone was happy chatting away with me so confused in between that I ended up speaking to my mum and dad in English and in Polish to C’s folks… Well funny!

Another great thing was that taking Chris and Geoff out for a walk with my mum and dad made me see Bydgoszcz, the city I lived in for 22 years before leaving for London in a completely different light. I loved it!

And I just couldn’t help but jump straight on it… read SCRATCHING! What scratching? Well, this scratching… C and I got the best travel present ever from my mum and dad. Following on from our Gap Year adventures they bought us a World Scratch Map that lets you scratch off a little gold foil off every country you’ve been to.

Here it is! I absolutely love it and think it’s an awesome idea. Next thing is to get a massive frame and make it a centre piece of our living room!

Want one of those for yourself? Go to and grab it quick!

Happy New Year and happy scratching everyone.
