    January 18 in Poland ⋅ ⛅ 0 °C

    Fun fact: This delicious street food is the entire reason I decided to loop around through Poland. Another fun fact: The cost was about 1/2 as much as my Americano at Costa Coffee (zł 7 vs. zł 13; 3.77 PLN = 1 USD).

    Krakau & Auschwitz

    April 8, 2017 in Poland ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Krakau, wat ben je mooi en wat willen wij hier graag nog eens terugkomen als het ietsje warmer is! Iedereen die ons een beetje kent weet dat we eigenlijk op reis zijn gegaan vanwege al het lekkere eten overal en hier op het oude marktplein konden we ons hart ophalen op de Paasmarkt. Heerlijke deegpakketjes (Pierogi) gevuld met van alles, zuurkoolstoofpot, een soort grote braadworst (kielbasa) en later in het vega eettentje Momo nog overheerlijke springrolls.. Genoten!

    Vanochtend gingen we naar Auswitsch en Birkenau en we waren erg onder de indruk van al het vreselijke wat we daar zagen en lazen. Ik dacht meerdere malen: Het lijkt net een horrorfilm.. En dat was het natuurlijk ook. Birkenau is echt enorm groot en het was erg bijzonder om te lopen tussen de barakken, langs de lange treinbaan en de brokstukken van wat ooit de gaskamers waren. Gisteren waren we in Krakau zelf naar het Shindler museum geweest. Dit is net een attractie zo mooi hebben ze het aangekleed. Je waant je echt in het Polen tijdens de tweede wereldoorlog. Je kon door het ghetto heenlopen wat het enorm benauwde gevoel gaf van hoe het moet zijn geweest; ommuurd door een muur van hoge grafstenen. Sombere, maar mooie monumenten voor de gruwelen die hier hebben plaatsgevonden.

    Krakau Kazimierz

    October 28, 2018 in Poland ⋅ 🌬 5 °C

    Nach einer weiteren regenreichen Nacht die wir aber in einer warmen, trockenen und günstigen! Unterkunft (mit heisser Dusche😀) verbracht haben, war am nächsten Morgen das Frania Cafe (http://franiacafe.pl) unsere erste Anlaufstelle. Hier gab es neben einem leckeren Frühstück, auch Waschmaschinen und Trockner. Damit war das Problem "Schmutzwäsche" auch ruckzuck gelöst😁.
    Nachdem es am Mittag dann zwar draußen immer noch ungemütlich aber halbwegs trocken war, durchstreiften wir das jüdische Viertel mit einigen Synagogen und seinen vielen gemütlichen Kneipen.

    Krakow Jewish Quarter

    March 7 in Poland ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    An interesting tour around Krakow's Jewish Quarter this morning, visiting a working synagogue amongst various interesting buildings and areas. Learnt a lot about old and modern Jewish culture. With Poland having the second biggest Jewish community in the world (after the USA) before 1939 to just 450ish today it really made me appreciate the scale of the Nazi regime's effect on the city.Read more

    March 13 in Poland ⋅ ☁️ 5 °C

    Po kratkom lete z Viedne a ubytovani sme vyrazili na rychly prieskum na Rynek Glówny. Zastavka v stylovej cajovni Herbarciarna Czarka (https://eherbata.pl/herbaciarnia.html) - super priestory a vyborny Oolong caj (ja Ali Shan Jin Xuan a Majka Milk Oolong). Potom presun do zidovskej stvrti Kazimierz, kde sme sa tesili na veceru v restike Zazie bistro (http://www.zaziebistro.pl/ - taliansky zamerane, vyborne recenzie a tesili sme sa na musle), ale bolo plno. First fitovo (caj uz riadne tlacil) sme nakoniec skoncili v Kolanko No 6 (http://www.kolanko.net/). Ukazalo sa to ako vyborna volba. Lokalne krakovske craft pivecka (podotykam, ze si dala aj pani M.) nasledovalo predjedlo (ja Indonezyjski satay a Majka Kofty wegetarianskie) a ako hlavne jedlo Musaka (grecke jedlo, Majka) a Murgh Makhani (indicko-britske jedlo, ja) - proste typicka polska restika ;) ... ale preto ma motto “ Naokolo swiata”. Ja som to este zaklepol zakuskom Ciasto czekoladowe podawane na cieplo z sosem z malin , jagod i porzeczek a Long Island Ice Tea. Nasledne som sa uz len odgulal cez nocny Rynek Glówny do postele - popravde pred spankom este ochutnavka cestou zakupenej flasky lokalneho cerveneho Srebrna Góra Kraków Cabernet Cortis 2017 (vyborne!!!). Kazdopadne som v Kazimierzi s jeho mnozstvom utulnych restik, barov a culym nocnym zivotom odhalil velky potencial aj do dalsich krakovskych vecerov.Read more

    September 24, 2018 in Poland ⋅ 🌬 8 °C

    Lovely city. Old capital of Poland. Unusual for Poland wasn’t destroyed during the war so has quite a different feel. Four hour walking tour and then a couple of hours wandering, church, market, cemetery. The usual.
    Biggest market square east of the Pennines and a few of the biggest buskers.
    Why aren’t we losing weight?
    The answer, Polish cuisine.

    May 19, 2017 in Poland ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Thanks to all for wishing me a happy birthday! I left Katowice this morning and stalls were being set up for a musical and outdoor festival. Music was playing and people were in great spirit and another sunny day. Holy cannoli is it hot and Kraków is buzzing! So much action. Music and film festival, huge market and artisans in Rynek Square. Loved it the first time here with Olli in 2013 and I love it even more again. Had a plate of mushroom and cabbage perogies and a couple of beers for lunch. There are a ton of British tourists and the Polish people speak excellent English. Booked my hostel away from the old town as it is super noisy and I'm only a 10 minute walk away ($11 per night, yippee). Lots of parks and green space and super clean. Krakow is the Catholic capital in Poland and home of John Paul II. Walked along the river Wisla and enjoyed the warm summer night. Kraków has become a gastronomic Mecca and there are so many great restaurants to choose from. I walked through the indoor and outdoor market and through St. Benedicts church. There was a peaceful Communist support rally in the main square. I didn't go into Wawel church as the queue was huge and I had too much to see. Lots of super fall down drunk British guys tonight. Don't think the Queen would be too impressed.Read more

    Loving Poland

    July 24, 2016 in Poland ⋅ ⛅ 81 °F

    So as the title says, I'm loving Poland! I don't know specifically what it is that makes me love Poland but I know the excitement and energy here is infectious. Today we were on an all day boat and castle tour. The bus took us almost 2hrs outside towards Slovakia. We stopped and had a tour of a dam and a castle. Both were pretty interesting spots. Very pretty views all around. After that the bus took us to the river border between Poland and Slovakia. That's where we had our boat tour. It was very nice and relaxing and of course very beautiful. We rode the river between mountains and the weather was perfect. We were also in Slovakia for awhile so I get to add that to the list of countries. Our boatmen were pretty fantastic and hilarious. Our tour guide translated everything they said and explained many things to us. We finally had lunch at 4:15pm. And at 6 started our journey back. Once back we were able to find a church that has a very late Mass (9:30pm) that was starting shortly, thanks to our tour guide. It was packed! It was a beautiful church and I was so excited because that was my first Polish Mass. I really enjoyed that experience. As we were leaving we went through the town square and there was a WYD concert happening. We were checking it out and one of their last songs was the WYD theme. I got really excited because I know that song pretty well after listening to it for almost a month and a half now. So I belted it out. It was amazing! The excitedness of everyone there was so great and I absolutely loved it! Tomorrow should be good day but definitely a more serious day. We are visiting Auschwitz.Read more

    Plac Nowy, Cracovia.

    October 4, 2014 in Poland ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    La bulliciosa plaza Nowy en el bario judio es el corazón de la vida nocturna. El antiguo mercado, donde antaño se sacrificaban los animales según el rito hebreo, aloja hoy una decena de puestos de zapiekanki (un híbrido entre pizza y bocadillo) en los que cada noche se forman colas de jóvenes en busca de una cena rápida y barata antes de ir por algún bar de la zona.
    En nuestro caso, ademas, dimos con una abeja local con apetito.
