Well...in 1999 i went over to Poland to watch speedway / Żużel - and from the minute i got out of the taxi by warszawa centralna , i was in love.

We had a fantastic night out in warsaw...then a train up to bydgoszcz, then fell in love with Poland even more..

The friendliness, the innocence, the humility, the humour, the way in which in they welcomed us.... it was all part of it. I've experienced many many things there, and i look forward to every visit.

Over the years, i've tried to teach myself Polish, and whilst i'm not fluent by any means whatsoever, i know enough to make some friends, to survive, and to love the country.

I cherish every time i'm lucky enough to get off the plane and see the white and red in front of me...

Polska biało czerwone ;-)

Well, thats it..

Tom.

My Mother's maternal Grandparents, Andrew & Anastasia Bielanski, came from Poland in the early 1900's. Grandma spoke of them often. I grew up in a Polish community in Michigan. and grew up with the flavors of the food and music from Poland.

I was born in Rzeszów and lived there for 10 years then came to the states with dad and older sister while leaving Mom and younger sister behind. The family was separated for 14 years.

Polska has given me my roots and I shall love her so until I die.

Hi,
I'm Polish. I was born in Olsztyn, came to Canada when I was 4 but I go back to Poland quite often. I like to stay connected to my family there and try to keep up with the language.

Maybe I'll move there someday! who knows..

Born in Kalisz, lived here and there in Poland, from the very north to very south, and as Krakow is my favourite city I spent half of my life there.

Currently in Dublin.

I am from Dublin and i live near Krakow :)

How is Dublin treating you?

Great.
I've been here for slightly over 2 ys now and haven't thought about moving out yet, which is a good sign because I generally move a lot.

I suppose I'm just a lucky person. Always with the right people, in the right places etc.

I am very happy to hear that.
Dublin is a great city :)
I also move around a lot but I just keep coming back to around Krakow.
I am here year and a half so far this time.
I would count myself lucky too.

Your there and I'm here, maybe it is a balance, ha ha ha

I know there is something just inexplicable about Krakow, that keeps you coming back! very hard to describe. I just love the place.

it is like a plug hole in the bottom of a bath, try as you might, you'll always end up there ha ha ha.

And the mountains to the south, Rock!

I feel quite envious of you, what is the degrees right now, I know that there is no snow, otherwise my friend would have told me, or am I wrong?

it is warmed up to minus 10 and about 40 cm of snow, it was a beautiful day.
And you should be envious, you have a very beautiful country.
Where are you now?.

Yes I know England is also beautiful. Do you really have snow in Krakow, or is it in the mountains? I have a friend who does walking guides into the Tatras.

What about Sopot, isn't it just a great place for a holiday.

Sopot is good, but it has a bit "old" feeling - like Krakow. Plus it's quite expensive.
I rather prefer Gdynia - I was born there, I lived there and I hope to die there (in a distant future hopefully)

That is probably why I like Sopot. I have never thought of that before. I go every year for holiday there ,and I love the peace and tranquility, and no Mcdonalds, and crazy stupid people. Sopot should be kept a secret.

Born in Mexico, raised in deep south Texas (where it gets below 0 degrees one or two days out of the year), moved to Houston (same weather) for three years. Wife's Polish and now going to med school in Poznan, therefore I moved to Poznan (last month). Now I'm just waiting for summer to come so I can see what it's actually like outdoors.
