Chill out in Poznan: A Trip with Kids

Once I fell in love, in Poznan. But it was long long time ago and it’s not very much connected with our family travelling ;) It was time to come back to this Polish city, in four. And now I fell in love with Poznan itself.

Polish Christmas: Don’t panic.

Poland Likes

Kitsch and crowd? Oldschool charm? After many many years I simply had to come back to Zakopane, the heart of Polish highest Tatra mountains. To see how much of my childhood memories are still there, to show it to Tom and the girls. So… yes, some memories are alive.

The first thing was… spring! Sun started to shine during our slide-show on International Tourism Show and didn’t stop for all the weekend. The second surprise was the girls on the streets: very different that in Warsaw or Berlin. But the coolest surprise from all were… dwarfs.

Travel trade fairs, festivals, meetings with travellers – for us are an absolutely great opportunity to 1. move our asses outside of Berlin (every excuse is good!) and to 2. visit new places! Yes, shame of us that we have visited tiny villages of Guatemala and have never been before to Wrocław…

Because we decided not to make too long car driving every day – we still had one stop for night in Poland, in the middle of the way Cracow-Lviv. Visiting Zuza’s parents in Trzebownisko, near Rzeszow was like coming back home, under care of somebody calm and familiar. Drinking, like at home from Nescafe cups Read More
