I’ve traveled to Poland quite a lot now over the last 10 years, which has given me the opportunity to experience a few different aspects of the country. So I thought a dedicated series would be the best way to share my experiences.
Although I must preface this with I’ve never lived in Poland, I’ve only ever been here as a visitor, although staying with family here has helped with a bit of an insight into daily life here. So this will undoubtedly put some bias on my observations, but it will hopefully be of use to any others who are fortunate enough to visit Poland and maybe entertaining for others.
Something that always peaks my interest when in Poland is that there is always the paradox of old and new side by side. This is something that will probably present as a theme in this series. The Polish are a very proud and sentimental people, very fond of their roots while simultaneously keeping up with the rest of the world, and I hope I do justice throughout the series.
