  • Cold a Surprise, But History a Thrill in Poland The view from atop Mt. Kasprowy, Poland After months of pestering him like a court jester, I finally coaxed a coworker out of his LOT Polish Airlines passes, and made plans to Posted by world_wide_mike in Worldwidemike | Aug 6, 2019
  • Big castles and big shipsWednesday early afternoon we arrived at castle Malbork and decided to go see it then. It is an impressive and imposing complex built out of red bricks. By area the largest castle in the world this was once the head Posted by maxari in Adventures in Bruce | Jul 25, 2019

  • Constant bartenderThe train to Krakow arrives at 2:40pm as agreed in the internet purchase agreement. Me and my wife had our seats in a closed compartment of six people so we couldn't, or didn't dare, have any conversation. As a result Posted by Keelaster in Eurohop'19, from couches to backpackers' | Jul 8, 2019
  • Go taxifyWe started off walking to the Jewish history museum and the plan was to eat something along the way. It was 2pm and I was still suffering from hangover and was feeling tired.

  • Searching for the perfect Kielbasa and cheapest pint, part 1We arrive at Warsaw railway station at 1pm. The AirBnB apartment is less than 20min walk away, but once again it starts raining heavily enough that we have to go to a hipster coffee shop for shelter.

  • Day 22: WarsawTo start our last day in Warsaw and the last day of our trip, we went again to Castle Square to tour the castle. Like everything else, this was destroyed in WWII and wasn't reconstructed until the 70s. Posted by AnneO in Central/Eastern Europe 2019 | Jul 3, 2019
  • Day 21: WarsawAfter breakfast today we went to the Castle Square to meet up with a free walking tour of the Old Town. We had about 40 minutes before the tour started and we were all running out of cash so Posted by AnneO in Central/Eastern Europe 2019 | Jul 2, 2019
  • Day 20: WarsawAfter breakfast this morning in the hotel we went to the Warsaw Uprising Museum.

  • Day 19: Krakow to WarsawWeather Update: I think this is the worst of the heat wave in this area. It was in the mid-90s today but should be back in the low 80s tomorrow. Of course, cooler seasonal weather is coming Posted by AnneO in Central/Eastern Europe 2019 | Jun 30, 2019
  • Days 17 and 18: KrakowWe have had two days of really nice weather, but the heat wave comes back tomorrow! I actually had to wear a jacket yesterday for the first part of the day. I am glad because otherwise I had Posted by AnneO in Central/Eastern Europe 2019 | Jun 29, 2019
  • Gydinia port and Gdańsk PolandToday we visited Gdańsk Poland, where the first shots of WWII were fired. As you look at the photos, the buildings without color were rebuilt and the empty area you see was bombed out and not rebuilt. We heard today Posted by mludewig in Adventures | Jun 28, 2019
  • Day 16: KrakowWe had prebooked our tour to Auschwitz and a van picked us up at our hotel at just before 8am. There would be a total of eight people in our van, and we had to stop at each of Posted by AnneO in Central/Eastern Europe 2019 | Jun 27, 2019
  • Day 15: KrakowThe heat wave has arrived! It is currently 94 degrees and feels every bit of it. The weather forced us to alter our plans a bit for today to limit our walking. We had planned to take Posted by AnneO in Central/Eastern Europe 2019 | Jun 26, 2019
  • Day 14: Olomouc to KrakowIt was another travel day so not much to report. We took a taxi to the train station at 10am, which was our checkout time at the apartments. Our train wasn’t until 12:46 so we had to wait Posted by AnneO in Central/Eastern Europe 2019 | Jun 25, 2019
  • Last Day in WroclawI am going to keep today's post brief. Our main task was figuring out how to get to the bus station for tomorrow. It was actually very confusing, but we think we have a decent plan, but it Posted by Amber Garrison in The One Less Traveled By | Jun 16, 2019
  • WroclawToday we slept in. Grant is still injured, and I was just wiped out and took the morning run off. (Neal has been doing his own run, and then coming back to get me.) We did walk to Hydropolis Posted by Amber Garrison in The One Less Traveled By | Jun 15, 2019
  • WroclawToday wasn't super eventful. I think our jet leg is kicking in. We typically have a "plan" to fight the jet lag, but it is pretty hard when your flights are delayed for about 11 hours. So, we keep Posted by Amber Garrison in The One Less Traveled By | Jun 14, 2019
  • WroclawWe kept hearing from people (including people from Poland) that we needed to visit the zoo in Wroclaw--that it is known around the world, people love it, etc. I tend to not be a zoo person, although we have Posted by Amber Garrison in The One Less Traveled By | Jun 13, 2019
  • WroclawOur first full day in Worclaw went pretty well. It is very hot here for Wroclaw...normally it isn't 90 degrees. I was hoping today to get two walking tours in, but since Grant has an injured leg, it Posted by Amber Garrison in The One Less Traveled By | Jun 12, 2019
