As with every year before it and, most likely, every year to come, 2017 was a year of ups and downs. Continue reading “Petite Adventures YEAR in Review: 2017”
Located on Poland’s northern coast, Gdansk is a city known for its rich history and quaint seaside vibe. It might not be the first or even second Polish city you think of but for me, it ranks as #1.
Last January, Dave and I took advantage of some cheap deals and went for a weekend city break. We weren’t exactly sure what to expect from the city, but we were not disappointed. From the food to the sights, Gdansk blew us away.
Here are the top five reasons I think you should plan a visit to Gdansk.
For many, January is a month to hunker down and practice the Danish art of hygge, letting the cold, dark winter weather swirl around outside the windows.
But not for this Petite Adventurer, at least not this year!
While in past years, I’ve been known to spend more time inside than out during the winter, I’ve decided that 2017 will be different! This will be the year I get up and out, no matter the weather. And I’m happy to say that the first month of 2017 was filled with a few adventures, both big and small, despite some colder temperatures!
Wanderlust Wednesday is a series where I revisit a past travel adventure and memory. This week, I’m looking back at my day in Warsaw, Poland.
We had just one day to explore Warsaw, Poland; and it didn’t help that I was coming down with the worst cold I’ve ever had. But, I made the most of it.
After a quick tour of the city – both by bus and on foot – we ended up in a town square in the middle of old town. I don’t know what it was but there was something so perfectly quaint and serene about this spot. Although, by the time I’d arrived in Warsaw I’d already been in Europe for two weeks, I don’t know if I’d been in a spot that felt more European.
Only having one day was not nearly enough to explore this capital city, especially when you’re coming down with a plague-like-cold. From the bus, I saw so many different sights that I wanted to explore. Clearly, I’ll have to make time over the next year to visit this Eastern European gem.
