The article describes the function of ‘autobiographical places’ in the memoir book My Way to the Moon and the essay Post scriptum from the volume Post scriptum e outros textos by Tomasz Łychowski, a Polish-Brazilian poet. Existing geographical locations – Vitória, Fazenda do Secretário, Vassouras and Rio de Janeiro – mark the stages of adaptation of a teenage refugee from Europe to the reality of the country of settlement – Brazil. The author shows the path of his life by recreating the process of moving from one place to another and building relationships with people he meets in each of the topographical locations.
