I never felt in danger for one second, not even when walking down an unlit, dirt-track road in a secluded part of Ostroda with my headphones in
Why were you so convinced you were safe? Of course it's good to feel secure (at least you don't lose self-confidence) but I would be careful even if someone told me the "unlit, dirt-track road..." in the foreign country is the safest place in the world!
poland isn't as bad as rumour has it in terms of being robbed
probably you're right but I still think you'd better play it safe by avoiding walking alone at night...
maybe I'm too careful or I heard too many stories about muggers, rapists etc.
