Love WM editorial team consists of enthusiasts who decided to put their love of the region on paper and share it with other people that are interested in the places visited. Love W_M is developed to encourage us all to be closer to the nature that is really rich in this region – to try dishes based on regional products, to learn history of the region and explore some places more or just admire beautiful views.

It is with deep sorrow and a sense of profound loss that we bid farewell to our fellow editorial colleague, Stanisław Harajda, who passed away in March of this year before the latest issue of the magazine was published. He still managed to write two texts, contributing to the latest issue (98/21), thus, leaving us with mere vestiges of his extensive knowledge and great passion for Varmia and Masuria.
