Poland – Krakow & Auschwitz

Jack and Jane - Travel - Poland, Krakow & Auschwitz_0001

Poland. What an amazing country.

Awesome People – complete strangers would help you in the middle of the night during a rain storm to find your flat, and carry your bags. On a different day we took the train to Krakow, our coach consisted of an Englishman, that lives in Poland , he has a very slight grasp of polish, 2 Polish Students that have a slight grasp of English and a Polish Teacher with his dog that has no idea of English. In that mix, we shared stories, shared local beer, shared jelly tots, we had an absolute blast.

Awesome Night life – When they say “don’t mix polish vodka with beer” they mean it. You can however have Zapiekanki from the streets that absolutely blow your mind, but be weary for the hot sauce, they don’t call it “Dracula” to be ironic.

Awesome Markets – Hala Targowa Market sells everything from war memorabilia to A rollerskate. Yes. A ROLLERSKATE. I bought war memorabilia , Laura bought old Russian cameras. Unbelievably cool. We bought a large photograph of a girl holding her dog from 1940. We were approached by 5 different people on the street that wanted to see the picture and wanted to comment on it’s immense poignancy.

Auschwitz – More specifically Birkenau, the Death Camp. This was one intense place to be, it was hard to breath, it felt like you where being watched the whole time, you might be alone in a room, but you never feel alone, you are surrounded by millions. Intense. Beyond bizarre. You walk in awe and excitement, but you leave with a serious sense of dread.
