life is still quite conservative, and probably will continue to be so
Which is great, there are many of us expats / returnees where I live we have a great social life, many of us are retired or are people of some means so we have plenty of opportunity to entertain organise trips out on the lakes or further afield skiing exploring the mountains, city breaks markets etc ,and all the rest that Poland has to offer.
Not having a pub culture we tend to take over a restaurant for the night or organise parties/ barbecues at home, many have palaces guest houses, hotels, boats, camper homes so there is always somewhere to sleep should anyone over indulge.
The great thing is if anyone has a problem there is always someone who knows the solution or the right people in the right places.
For me the great thing about being here is its safe to live here I often forget to lock the house up, the roads are empty so travel is simple (as long as you don't go during public holidays).
Recently, long weekend in Wroclaw doing the Christmas market food and drink, many of us are going to Gorlitz for new years party then watch the fireworks from the bridge, had to book all the hotel rooms early they are all booked up now. should be fun as long as I remember to take euros with me this time.
