I apologize for my absence in blogging but life got busy after we came back from our trip. I had to organize myself again and transition to my life.
There was so many events in my life since my last post that I don’t even know where to start. Please let the pictures tell the stories…
My cousin’s wedding: we had a blast till a daylight. You can always count on the hospitality and lots of dancing at the Polish wedding.
We finished 2 days of celebration with fire pit; I didn’t do it for years, it was a very relaxing and a perfect way to end our stay there.
We left the next day to Gdansk (Tom’s hometown). I love this city: it has the history and charm.
The Dominican market was taking place -it’s the best time to visit the city during summer time.
The next day we were flying back to Canada. I always feel a little sad when I am leaving my homeland…but I think it’s natural to feel this way. On the other hand i could come back to my routines, my home, my dog (that I missed so much).
I missed my food that’s for sure; my beautiful running trails and training sessions with the dog
Also last weekend we had Marcus’ first Bday party-what a boy!!!
and I think we are good now..
That’s basically all in short. Hopefully you had a very good month as well. More to come in September. By then, take care
On one of these hot days we went to Wroclaw; to the nearest city where I spent all my University time here. Each time I go back it is a sentimental trip filled with memories.
Wroclaw is situated on the River Oder, is the largest city in the western Poland. It’s also known as a “meeting place and students city”.
We wandered around downtown all day. Thanks to lot of monuments and churches here, we could easily find places in the shade to cool off.
Ostrow Tumski (Cathedral Island) is my favorite and the oldest part of the city. It’s between branches of the Oder River. This is where I used to relax after lectures and lie down to study.
Bridge of love
After visiting Wroclaw Market Hall we went for dinner to the new vegan restaurant “Food for life”. I got some gluten free vegetable curry.
It was a great day, I invite you to see this place if you ever are around.
How is it going?
We arrived in Poland a week ago and for now we are just relaxing here, in my hometown. Honestly I like to come here and just be lazy for the first few days; Wandering around my old places, meeting with our friends, visiting my grandmother etc, nothing crazy.
The trip was …Ok. But I find that each time it just getting harder for me to travel: long hours of flight then waiting on the airport to transfer to another plane and changing the time zone.
My body really wanted to stretch at this point;)
We have an extreme heat., around 40 C since we arrived. It’s nice to experience the summer but considering that there is no AC in most of the apartments, can be very uncomfortable (especially to sleep). We went to the lake one day to cool off
One of my fav. spot when I used to come when I was younger.
very quite, almost private place for swimming.
In this weather ice cream is a MUST
I got a few interesting flavors of green and red tea-and I am enjoying them in the evenings. Delicious.
I will be back soon with some picture from our day trip.
