This time I won’t tell you about big adventure, but about big trip for me and myself. And well I need to finally say something nice about my own country!
Maybe not really say, I don’t have a lot to say, maybe more I will show you but… Anyway I made it, I finally went home after 8 months, I spent hundreds of dollars on ticket, but I had to see my family and my dog! And I was also tired of tens of messages from my friends when I finally gonna come….
So I bought plenty of gifts, because well I’m traveling from USA, how could I not to bring anything for everyone end on 23rd of August I got on Lufthansa’a Boeing 747-700 (2 floors motherfu***r) ready for 10 hours flight, but excited that I have only one landover. I found REALLY good flight. So here’s my first tip- whenever you fly over the ocean fly with Lufthansa, they are fast, easy, their food is good, they are really good ariline. Excluding that wherever you are they speak to you in German, without bothering themselfes and trying to speak English….
But after 3 movies, two meals and hundreds of metres of walking on the airplane I got home, I saw my family and I hugged my dog (who actually seemed to not realize I was gone). I swimmed in the sea, met my friends, legally got drunk, ate in my favorite restaurant (here’s a second tip- if you’ll ever be, by accident or purpose, in Sopot, Poland and like asian food go to Tandoori on Grunwaldzka Street, A-MA-ZING). It was GREAT, GREAT week. Unfortunatelly only week. But I’m positive, I WILL be back and then for longer.
For my mum’s birthday we went to Wladyslawowo, it’s a city on peninsula for camping and this is where my photos come from.
Few other travel trips from a sea girl.
When you’re by polish sea WHAT TO EAT?
-Well you’re in Poland- dumplings [pierogi]! Great dumplings you can find in Mandu restaurant in Gdansk (place where undersigned heard that she has beautiful smile from Jared Leto), if you’d like to spend less money go to Bursztynowy restaurant on Grunwaldzka Street in Sopot.
-Fish, of course. My favorite is our own Baltic flounder [flądra], but others are also good like for example herring [śledź ;p] (great fish you can eat in Przystań restaurant on a Sopot beach)
-Polish donuts [Pączki], I’ve never thought they’re something special till my friend told me to bring some. They’re different, they’re good.
-Bees soup [barszcz] or “soup made of fermented rye flour” found in a dictionary [żurek], the second one you can find served in ball made of bread, delicious!
WHAT TO DO?
-Go see Gdansk Old Town. With a river going through the centre, with old dutch-type houses and plenty of amber sellers is amazing, magical place.
-Typical place where every tourist needs to go and place that you’ll find on 80% of postcards is Sopot Pier, but if you don’t like following the crowd, go a little bit left and you’ll find little pier, where you can sit and watch the sea AND pretty big pier.
-Port in Gdynia. Well we have few beautiful ships I have to say, beautiful sailing ships, big WWII destroyer and few submarines you can visit.
-Take a water tram (from all three ports in three-city) to Hel, city that lies on peninsula, on one part you can swim in the bay, on other in the open sea. Very popular place in there is seal centre.
-Well, we have great beaches. Suuuper crowded… But big. And sea is warm, so I thinnk everyone needs to go for a beach at least once.
-If you want to go a little further you can go to Malbork (by car or by train) and see XIII century Teutonic castle, it is impressive.
-Go for a walk. Łysa Góra (Bald Mountain) in Sopot, Jelitkowo Park, wide beaches are amazing places to just go and walk and watch.
-See Westerplatte, place where whole famous WWII started heh, a little more history place, but worth seeing.
-Go party! Sopot is a polish capitol of night life! On the main street (Monte Cassino) you have a club every 50 metres, but my personal favorite is “Trzy Siostry”, in Sheraton building.
Probably there’s plenty other places that I cannot think about now, but if you’d like to know more let me know!
