/ What's really cool about Poland - A new boy's point of view
I've been here a couple of weeks now and also read all the latest threads on this forum and thought it would be good to tell folks what I think of Poland so far. So from a Brit's point of view:
Firstly, I am NOT new to other countries. Having served in the British Army for 13 years, I've been around a bit. Dad was a squaddie too so I'm used to following him around the world! Born in Malaya, 17 years in Germany, a few too many tours in NI, a few dodgy trips to ..... (can't tell you) etc.
I am amazed at just how welcome I have been made by the Polish people since I arrived. Perhaps it's because my GF is Polish - but I don't think so.
Business has been easy, seems that a Brit in a suit with a good product and a smile goes down well.
Prices here are (in comparison with the UK) simply unbelievable. Everytime I go shopping, I feel like I've robbed the place!
Warsaw is so modern, just like any European city.
The language is difficult to learn but really cool - all that ZZZZ makes me want to sleep!
The food (when cooked by my GF) is fantastic - fresh, tasty - and cheap!
The beer is great!
The Vodka is even better!
They practically give ciggies away!
Public transport is fuc*ing amazing - always clean, always on time & cheap!
Polish women are gorgeous (with the exception of the occasional fugly)
Buildings are amazing!
History is inspirational!
Driving here is mental!
Kebabs here are wicked! and cheap!
Builders here do things the difficult way e.g. they build concrete blocks on site.
Zebra crossings here are really fuc*ed up!
Roundabouts are amusing!
The tramps are gentlemen!
The weather is how it should be!
I LOVE IT!
