With winter fast approaching [...] I've never lived a Polish winter.
Lucky you! I wish i was there!! I want a real winter, cold and snowy!
I think i've lived 2 Polish winters. Last one was in Zakopane, almost 3 years ago, at Christmas time. It was sooo nice, all that snow and Christmas lights, decorations everywhere.
How long can one stay outside for during those long winter days? Can you still stay active outside? Do people still go for walks????
Nah, Polish people are like bears, they sleep til spring is back ;)
Kidding. You know, it depends. Winters are not as cold as they used to be. It also depends on the region. But having a walk is doable. You will see plenty of people risking their life outside ;)
