About P.

He is a friendly, but grumpy old man in a body of the 25 year old guy. If he is staying too long in one place, he starts to grumble that it is time to move, see other things. When he is finally on a move, he’s grumbling non-stop about that he has to move. The strangest thing in this behavior is that he does it with the smile on his face and constantly repeats that no one cheers him up more, than he himself. So, when you hear, or read that he enjoyed, or was astonished by a city, or beautiful nature’s spot – don’t consider if you should, or should not visit that place. You HAVE to go there.
