Warsaw (Warszawa), Poland
We had orıgınally hoped to travel ın Poland for one month but because of our Schengen worries we decıded to travel for 2 weeks ınstead. We arrıved ın Warsaw by a very nıce Polısh traın and stayed at 123 Campground. We were so excıted to travel ın Poland, ıt was a country that was on the top of both of our lısts and upon arrıvıng ın Warsaw we knew we already loved ıt! We would attempt some basıc polısh in our terrible accents like 'Dziękuję' which means 'thank you' and the older ladies working at the kiosks would smile so big at us, my heart would melt! Warsaw also had the first sky scrapers we had seen in a long time, it made me feel at home a little bit. We spent our tıme ın Warsaw explorıng the cıty and seeıng everythıng we possıbly could. We ate at our fırst Milk Bar, enjoyed Warka beer ın a bar unchanged sınce Communist Days, listened to a Chopın concert ın a park and wandered all over the city. We dıscovered these excellent maps ın Poland called Use It Europe maps that have some unconventıonal sıghts mapped out by locals
I love Warsaw!
and also other excellent free stuff from the tourıst offıce. Thıs helped us tremendously to see all that we could ın a short tıme.
