Travel / Traveling from Poland to London and back?! Transportation advice please. [9]

Merged: LONDON - POLAND transportation

I'll be going to London in about 2-3 weeks and will also visit Germany and Poland. Does anyone know anything about transportation, other than plane from London to Bremen in Germany? Any regular buses or train? etc.

Any help will be appreciated.
thanks

Love / Soldier born in Poland / living in England. Fiance going away for ages. Complicated... [205]

so far i have noticed that you have not contributed anything to this forum, and your replies are always miserable and unhelpful. you must have a real crap life out there...

Don't worry about my life. You are the one that came here with the problem so rather worry about yourself. You started all the name calling. I just commented to the thread.

Life / Customer Service in Poland, what are your experiences? [106]

she decided to do it with your mouth full is rude

you're right about that

and again nothing unusual.

not in Poland

What waiting staff dont seem to have realised in many Polish restaurants is that tip size is directly related to service quality

very true

May be it's because Poles largely dont tip, so whats the point of giving good service.

Probably so but it's still a weak excuse for a bad service.

Sort of fits with the apparent Polish mindset of showing courtesy or manners is a sign of weakness

no comment :-)

History / Poland and Lithuania [161]

it used to be Poland

a part of it was for a while. I've met many Lithuanians and they have totally different opinion about Polish-Lithuanian relationship. To be honest, it didn't sound like they felt Polish.

LOL This is why people think Americans are idiots

Just look at Scott's USA profile, he's Polish. No need to judge or insult Americans but then again I personally don't give a damn what you guys think about us. Words don't count but the facts do and the fact is that our nation achieved more in 231 years than most of the others countries in thousands of years and I'm proud of it just like you're probably proud of being whoever you are.

[quote JustysiaS' yeah there is always a twat or two who have to add their miserable few words to the conversation. i have been expecting it sooner or later

After being for more than 4 years in Poland your reaction doesn't surpise me at all. One thing I've learned about you guys is that you love to criticize others but hate to be criticized. The word twat coming out of your mouth is rather a compliment.LOL

so if all you have got to say is 'you dont love your fiance', then i suggest you go and f*ck yourself. cheers.

If you get so upset about it then why the hell you posted the story? Besides my hubby was military and I know what it takes to be seperated for a long period of time. We raised 4 kids and one of them is a marine currently stationed in Iraq. I never even thought for a minute to leave my husband just because he had to serve our country. I don't post any of my family matters but if I did I would have to expect some criticism by other people and would have to be able to take it.

What customer service in Poland?...is there such a thing?

LOL
I know someone here that owns 3 small grocery stores (in Mikolajki the biggest one) and customer service is #1 for her.Unfortunately she's the only one that feels that way here.

Travel / What has changed (travel-wise) after Poland's joining the Schengen zone? [15]

throwing rubbish by Germans into the forests along the border is a serious problem

I haven't been into the woods along the border but I was quite a few times around where I live in Mikolajki and before around Lublin and Siedlce area and I must say that I haven't seen so much trash in any forest before in my entire life. I wonder who's responsible for that. In Lubelskie probably Ukrainians and around here it must Russians.

USA, Canada / COST OF PHONE CALLS from Warsaw to USA? [12]

how is the phone quality from this box since you said they hook it up to the internet?

You just hook a regular phone to the box. It's not Voip, it's internet phone connection. The quality is fine.

USA, Canada / COST OF PHONE CALLS from Warsaw to USA? [12]

I have Live Box but never use because is too expensive

If 12 gr. min. to the USA is expensive then I don't know whats cheap. The Tele -Grosik card from the post office seem to be more expensive to me. I think it's 60 or 65 gr. a min. I called my parents on the live box for almost 2 hrs. and paid a little over 12 zl. I consider that cheap. Live box is only expensive when you don't use it. It cost 10 zl. but if you sign a long term contract it will cost 1 zl. for the first six months and then 10 zl. a month.

USA, Canada / COST OF PHONE CALLS from Warsaw to USA? [12]

Angel, can you tell me what this live box is? and how does one get it?? Thank you.

If you got your landline with TP then just call 9393 and order it.I hope you speak Polish. Someone will come to the house with it and hook it up to you computer and you will have a second phone line with a diff. # from your landline,then DHL delivers the contract to you and you sign it and wait until the line starts working. This process will take a time. I'm guessing max 2 weeks or you can go to one of the TP points and it will go quicker.

It cost alot. I have the live box through TP and it cost 12 grosz a min. When I called from a land phone without it cost me 115zl. for 58 min. but it depends on time I guess too. It differs.

Life / Customer Service in Poland, what are your experiences? [106]

If the customer service in Kenya sucks then I feel for you but it still doesn't change the fact that it sucks in Poland too. I think I can allow myself this statement after being in Poland 4 and a half yrs.

I never considered Poland to be a part of the third world, but if you put it like you did then I have to agree that there are many more countries with bad customer service.For example Africa, Asia and parts of South America.
