What's your connection with Poland? Penpals.

We have nice buildings in the Rynek and surrounding area.

Add to that list friendly people, cheap but excellent beer, a unique atmosphere and a formerly top-secret commie elite resort not too far away.

As far as I'm concerned, the only bad thing about Przemysl is how far it is from Warsaw (although the place could really badly use a good hotel).

well to quote the cartoon in the xmas issue of Angora:
"w zyciu trzeba w cos wierzyc halino!"

I've always had positive feelings about Poland, blame my Dad..., and my mums kindly Polish employers. somehow it was there when i was growing up.

but i've got more serious lately, because i need a distraction from incurable chronic pain so it was either Poland or Heroin!

also its recently become possible to buy Polish newspapers here, so i realised that i'd never have a better chance to really throw myself into your wonderful culture

(this week its Wesola Lwowska falo!)

I'll be at the Katyn Memorial in Cannock 13/4/13 paying tribute in my own small way, I'm allergic to flowers so i took flower holders last time!

Polish workers which come in Finland introduced me to the language which I started to learn. Well, I have a friend too in Warszawa so those are the connections(of course this forum too :) ).

My maternal grandfather's parents immigrated to the U.S.A. from Poland,and their journey is really bizarre.To start with they were both born in Massachueetts,and their parents had immigrated here from Poland .They both moved to Poland with their parents when their parents moved back to Poland.And when they became adults they moved back here,and fortunately it was before the Holocaust.She was Ashkenazi Jewish.I thought he was full blooded Polish as did everyone in the family.His last name was Brzoska.I took an ethnic online D.N.A. test by the company 23andme,and they let me know that I also have Romanian ancestry which I know definitely had to come from my maternal grandfather because the rest of my grandparents have only Irish,English,and Native American Indian ancestry.Another D.N.A. test that is a lot more in-depth told me that the Nazis would have definitely hated me.Anyways I learned why my maternal grandfather did not look like his Polish siblings,but instead took after something deeper in his ancestry.I am still very proud to be part Polish though.I read that Poland is the most mixed Slavic country,.so now it all makes sense.And too my greatgreat grandparents that were Polish said they were born in Russia because Poland was a part of Russia at the time.,My mother's babcia,and dziadzio considered themselves Polish,even though she knew that she was Ashkenazi Jewish

Merged: PL People in the Midwest

Hello, I wanted to see if there's other Poles that also live in the Midwest area - especially Chicago. If so please introduce yourself and tell us a little about yourself. Things like:

1) Name - first name is fine.
2) What city/state are you from
3) Are you born in the US or abroad?
4) Do you speak Polish or any other languages?
5) What do you do for work, for fun, any hobbies/interests?
6) Anything else you want to say...

I'm Adrian. Born in Wroclaw in '88 and moved to Chicago with my family around '94-'95. I lived in Chicago, Fort Lauderdale/Miami, and Cincinnati since arriving in the US. I live in the northern suburbs of Chicago now once again after living in Cinci for 4 years, then Florida for 2, and then Cinci again for 1 year.There was actually a pretty big PL community in South Florida. There was a few PL people I met in Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky but very few and even fewer speak Polish.I speak English, Polish, and am pretty proficient in Spanish and Russian as well. I work as a sales rep within the healthcare industry. I like to travel, go to bars, snowmobiling, 4 wheeling, working on cars, etc.

Merged: Any British people or groups around Legnica/Jawor?

I was just wondering if there were any British people or groups living or meeting in or around the Legnica / Jawor area of Poland?

My wife is Polish and we come to Poland 3 or 4 times a year for around 11 days at a time. Although I am trying to learn Polish, conversation with most Polish people is difficult to say the least. I would be interested in meeting up with any British people living in or around this area to just relax and talk about experiences or best places to go etc.

Cheers
Harry

Sorry but the topic here is "What's your connection with Poland? Penpals." I can ask if any of the Brits I know in that area are looking for penpals, but I doubt they would be. Will let you know next week.

I realise this topic is about penpals, but I started a new thread with the above statement and guess that an admin has merged it into this one.

Thanks for asking anyway, much appreciated.
