Great great grandparents along with great grandparents emigrated to U.S. in 1870's to a region of U.S. with a high percentage of former Polish residents.

Have always been interested in learning more about their homeland. Began studying the language and have traced their roots to the area around Zlotow and Krostkowo.

Want to visit that region in the near future.
Have since become quite interested in Polish history, esp the early history.

To answer to the OP:

Place of origin. Genetics. Love. Beloved ones. Great part of who I am. One of the most important things in my life. One of the things i'd sacrifice my life for. A true home.

hi i am james

You forgot to mention that you fancy a "tandori chicken with pilau rice" now and then.

Merged: Any South African / Canadian expats working and living in Warsaw?

Hey everyone!

I was wondering if by any chance there are any South Africans or Canadian expats living in Warsaw? I have recently come over from Toronto, but I grew up in sunny Johannesburg, RSA (although I was born in Czech). Anyhow no need to get into details, but in case there are any Saffas out there - pls let me know? I have reached out to the SA Consulate via email, but no response yet and I think they would not be able to help out anyways, seeing that this is not within their scope to give out such information.

Anyways incase there are any Saffas / Canadians out in Warsaw, pls get in touch?

Many thanks!

@roz this is how you identify trolls looking to provoke a hateful reaction towards a specific group.

It is not, if you are an English teacher. If you are not, then it might be the right place...

Hi VincentR You are in probably the best forum for English speakers who are interested in Poland, as you can see from the above posts their can be a bit of banter that goes on , mostly people here are very helpful and friendly. welcome aboard.

Oh I am a Brit (Polish family in the UK speaks Polish) that spent most of his life living In the uk, I am now semi retired and have a smallholding in lower Silesia which we are doing up (as and when we feel like it), but mostly we use it as a base to travel and explore Europe.

VincentR One thing that I discovered is that you can click on any username and see their previous posts, you can then decide if their views are similar to your own, or at least you will know which topics tend to offend them and keep away from that sort of chat if you wish, good mixed bag of all sorts here, but some very useful information.

Welcome VincentR.
You will do just great here.
If I had a tip to give you it would be: "Do not post any of your personal information as it always comes back to bite people."

Polish people are great people.

Thank God you are not. Personally, I learned my English from Poland through the BBC English by Radio and Television programmes, so the only native teachers of English (or former native teachers of English) that I know are those whose posts I happen to read on this site.

If you want to know the true nature of this forum, you should regularly read the "Off-topic bin". Contrary to its name, the "off-topic" is the most on-topic section of this forum and those who do not read it are not the true members of the PF.

My name is Daniel Casimir Wojciech Milosc Crouch.

My father is David and his Mother called Nancy died in before i had even this body.

My grandfather is Casimir his mother is Anna she made good pierogi and Casimir worked for NASA.

Casimir could look into the sky at an airplane and know what kind of airplane it was, how long it took to build, how much it costed and yadda yadda.

i call Casimir grumps because Casimir is a sacred name and a child doesn't understand this fact. oh well.

i would say "Hey Grumps what kind of plane is that big gray one?"

and that question could be a conversation that lasts hours or the entire day if we wanted it to.

Pokoj i Meeelosssh. mellow.

i am tired of living in US and i and having fond thoughts of walking in the same neighborhoods and land that my grandmother Wislawa knew and told me about when she made red potatoes.

all of my friends so called at the tender age of 15 or so would start drinking.

i donno why. it happens yadda they were into whiskey and tequila and i sat in the living room watching Batman and reading a book called Man Against Modern Society.

i have intrinsically known that vodka keeps you warm because my Grannie would drink chilled vodkey with nutmeg cinnamon, green tea and ginger.

from what i remember she would drink this around lunch time and not stop for many many bed times.

anyhow it may have been every day it may not have but i always knew she did this more in the winters in Michigan.

i am Polish i do not have any blood that is not Polska because yadda yadda my blood cells are white and red.

i am embarassed that i was not tought my own language but it happens do not worry about it please.

my connection to Poland is that my plan is to have a plane ticket from US to Krakow and see my aunties and cousins this year and teach engyleeshz and Psychology at Jagiellonian University.

i have never looked into the eyes of my siostras i these crazy american women always tell me i have beautiful eyes. whatever.

i realy wish to talk to my bracias i siostras and learn more Polska.

Merged: Ostrow Wlk - Any expats out there?????

Just wondering if there are any expats out there in the Ostrow Wlk area who would like to get together for a night out.

I have been told by many there are loads of UK expats in the area, but have never actually seen or spoke to any.

So if you would like to have a get together (could be regular) and have a night out - let's get it sorted!
