    Day in Krakow

    October 14 in Poland

    Today we had a full day in Kraków. We went to the 9 am mass at St. Mary's Bascilica. Poland is a very strong Catholic Country with a deep reverence for Pope John Paul II. The mass was 100% in Polish but we could understand a couple of things from our Ukrainian Background and going to Ukrainian Liturgy, from the sign of the cross,to Alleluia, and to first few words of Our Father . The old priest gave a passionate sermon, however , we did not understand It but his actions were amazing. The church was beautiful and it was a joy to start our day that way .
    Immediately afterwards we had booked for a " Free Walking Tour of Old Town Kraków." The tour is operated by a company called Kraków Explorers and they have a suggested price you pay at the end whatever your budget can afford. Our tour guide Eugene was excellent . He is from Ukraine and left when the war broke out 4.5 years ago. We toured all around and learned so much about the old town. The Kraków 1/2 Marathon was on so walking around proved to be a challenge. I kept looking for Brett to see if he was in the lead pack.
    We were so impressed with the tour, after a perogie lunch which the restaurant was next to our hotel, I changed my shoes and we headed back for the afternoon tour of the Jewish Quarter with Eugene. He was great. We saw and learned so much about the Jewish people in Kraków and we saw a couple of film sites from Schindler's List.
    The evening we went to a Chopin Piano recital near the main square. The pianist was younger than Tyler and he played 9 pieces. The Chopin Ballade and the Mazurkas were my favourites.

    After over 26,000 steps today we were back at our hotel.

    Kein Plan

    September 6 in Poland

    Was passiert, wenn man keinen Plan hat, wie man von Warschau nach Krakau mit dem Rad kommt? Wir gehen in dieses Internetz und bleiben im Sand stecken. Und das kam so: Wir folgten den Etappenzielen einer im Internet angepriesenen Radtour entlang des Flusses Pilica. Das war teilweise auch sehr schön, führte durch hügelige Landschaft, Felder, Alleen und Apfelplantagen. Bei verschiedenen Versuchen einen Blick auf die Pilica zu erhaschen versanken wir jedoch jedes mal im Sand der Feldwege. Aufgrund eines plötzlich auftretenden Chillbedürfnisses der LeaH, gönnten wir uns zum ersten mal einen ganzen Tag Pause in einem Provinzdorf. Die Sehenswürdigkeiten waren schnell abgeklappert: eine kleine Kirche, eine kleine Burgruine und eine ehemalige Synagoge, die zu unserem Entsetzen heute als Supermarkt dient und mit einem gekreuzigten Jesus über dem Ausgang ausgestattet wurde. Es gab sogar einen kleinen Strand an der Pilica, so dass wir den Fluss nun doch mal ausgiebig beobachten konnten. Fazit: Ein Tag hartes chillen tut echt gut!Read more

    Poland #1

    February 4 in Poland

    It took some time to write this one. Lazyness obviously but also because it is difficult to find something unordinary that happened this weekend.
    The classic 7:10 flight to Warsaw. The recurrent car rental and drive to Lodz. The usual visit to the Bytom shop and the unsurprisingly larger than expected shopping bags. The compulsory gambling tour in the casino. The repetitive but always tasty food at home.

    The only thing setting this trip apart from the others is that Lukasz was in Cyprus that weekend and I had to have fun alone.

    Also, the Nissan Qashqai is a shitty car.
