Poland 2013

Now we are traveling back in time. In October, my good friend Jakub, invited me with him to Poland to meet his grandparents and explore a unseen country (for me).

We went with Ryanair, which is always very pleasant. Not. Jakub tried his best to teach me some Polish, and I tried my best to memorize and immitate him as good as I could. It didn’t really work out that good, considering all the people around us were laughing of my horrible Polish language skills.

Jakub’s grandparents where so adorable and cute! They were extremely welcoming and met me with open arms. I got a cute room and was super exited about spending my first night in a Polish home.

We had a late dinner and chatted with Jakub’s grandparents. The food grandmother had made for us was so delicious! I have never tasted anything like it, and I enjoyed every little bit I ate of the food. I was pretty full at the end of the evening. We also got served some Polish alcohol that tasted pretty good. I hadn’t seen much of Poland yet, as the flight arrived when it was dark, so I was way too exited about waking up to daylight.

The first thing in the morning was some delicious apple cake. Jakub had warned me about all the food in Poland. I was starting to see what he meant.

Then we headed out to explore a little.

I was really fascinated by how different I found the autumn colors here compared to Norway. It was such a delight walking around in the forest. I really love nature. The temperature was perfect as well. Norway had just become too cold to not wear a jacket.

Of course we had to use nature for a little photoshoot. Oh how I wish I could have had a female model with a magnificent dress standing in this forest.

The forest magically provided us a place to put my camera so we could take a selfie.
