So this is what happened last week: I published a post slightly different from the usual style of “The Cat”. I had this idea of writing some funny stories about me moving to Prague. My wife has been telling me for ages: “You should definitely write something about your life in the Czech Republic!” and I had the […]Read more "4 (maybe 5) things that I learned last week"

It’s the recount of how, together with my family, we made an epic-level […]Read more "Spaghetti alla Carbonara"
What happens when you try to combine two topics apparently very different from each other? Who knows? We didn’t. And that’s why we decided to realise SAY – Spinning a Yarn: a training course on how to apply effectively storytelling methods to global education issues. If you needed to search what “Spinning a Yarn” means, don’t worry: you […]Read more "SAY – Spinning a Yarn"
