Hi all, during a recent trip to Warsaw, a couple of friends and I produced a travel video with the perspective of the mid-twenty somethings in mind. It may be a little unconventional of me to post a link to our travel adventures instead of a written report, but there are sights to be seen that no word could describe.

Enjoy Day One:
At] Living. . .Warsaw // Day One [High-Definition - requires fast connection]

Or at] Living. . .Warsaw // Day One

Cheers and do let us know what you think!

Vimeo link was not available to me but the travelistic was. Nice job guys. I would have liked to see more than just the old square but was still nice and well put together and liked the music you chose also. Want to read more about Warsaw check out Ian's blog (Scatt) at 20 east (wordpress). What do you guys do in Canada and what city....(I'm guessing Toronto)

Hey Rdywenur, thanks for the feedback!

This video was of our day one adventures. We have a couple more episodes to put together that will showcase the other parts of Warsaw. Do you live in Warsaw?

We live in Vancouver and Calgary, both in Western Canada...Finance and Engineering.

Have you been to Canada?

Thanks Daisy!

If its not running so smooth, you can click to turn 'HD off' on the video. That way, it will run in a lower resolution.

Just out of curiosity. Are you all living in Poland? Must be weird/interesting to see Poland from a foreigner's eyes!

No, but I liked your film, it will be interesting to see what others think

Im not living in Poland but I'm looking at moving there early next year to join my girlfriend in Warsaw. She herself is Polish and is currently studying photography there. I, on the other hand, have to find a job for when I get there...

I have no qualifications or degrees but I have 4, almost 5 years retail management experience behind me. I'm also currently teaching myself Polish through as many courses and do-it-yourself's as I can. So hopefully when the times comes, I'll be able to have mastered the language a little bit at least. :)

Sorry to spam like this but if anyone out there has any idea of what kind of job I should search for or who I can contact as a South African citizen, then please let me know.

Thanks. :)

Oh, GREAT vid by the way. :)

Have you been to Canada?

I'm a New Yorker and so go to Niagara Falls and Toronto quite often. But I see your on the West Coast...nice there too. Will look for the rest of your trip. You guys look like you had fun. I had a friend who's job sent them to Calgary and they loved it there.

Online? Or did you buy books?

Good luck in your job search!

West Coast...nice there too

The West Coast is definitely much much different compared to the East. Its a slower paced environment over here...with more of an emphasis on quality of life..and beautiful scenery.

Just thought I'd post up a youtube version incase the other links don't work.

Cheers, 2nd episode on the way!

Hey, very nice video! Warsaw has always been my favorite large city in Poland and you guys captured it nicely. There are so many more hidden gems in Warsaw besides the Old Town. Hope you capture them on video as well. I look forward to viewing your next one. What type of video camera are you using?
18 Nov 2008 /  #13
thanks for posting it. I really enjoyed it.

I use a Sony HDR-SR12.

Thanks for all the kind feedback everyone! :D


Day Two of our adventures is now posted! In this episode, we visit the financial district, the warsaw rising museum, and the palace of culture and science.

For High-Def you can visit :]Living. . .Warsaw // Day Two @ Vimeo.

Or on Travelistic at]Travelis tic.

Or if you prefer, here is the youtube link, though I highly recommend the other options as Youtube has a rather poor video quality output.

Thanks for watching :)

I have one final day's worth of footage where we visit the Praga district in Warsaw.

And thats all for Warsaw!

We also visited Gdansk during our trip to Poland and I may look at putting that one together sometime in the future after I recover from having my eyes glued to the computer screen squinting and editing all of last week! I have a rather slow computer..

We are a patient lot, most of the time any ways.

I've never been in Poland, the nearest must be Stockholm og Kiel in Germany. Although, I have traveled a lot other places, like Britain, USA and Thailand. Poland seems like a nice, but cold country.

For some reason, the previous Warsaw Day One video had been blocked from view in Poland due to copyright issues surrounding particular music in the video. I have re-edited and uploaded a new version. :)

P.S. We recently travelled to Wroclaw and Krakow...and will be uploading those videos in the near future ;) ...Loved Poland in the spring..:)

I am going to Poland in August, and I'm happy to find your impressive video! It gives me a good impression of Poland. :)
