Can't wait! My cousin is coming here (USA) for a month and then him and I are off to Poland! I hope to see as much as I can in the time I have ( about 3 weeks). I need to take care of some personal stuff :) as I may be moving to Poland fairly soon if things work out. I can't wait to see ciocia again, and a wojiech or two I have yet to meet. Unfortunately, 3 of my uncles died within 3 weeks of each other last year so I will pay my respects to them also. I hope that the people I meet are as great as the people I know already, and that they are like some that are on this forum. Who knows we may walk by each other and never know :) Going to be near Warsawa and Gdansk plus a few other places! At least I speak and read Polish, I hope that helps. Any tips appreciated!

Wish me luck :) Oh and after reading many posts ... since I'm first generation and speak Polish... I hope people don't hate the American in Poland :)

BEST TO YOU ALL!

I don't think they do too bad.. Just kind of be laid back and not too loud.

I plan on being laid back... I am in NO WAY the loud obnoxious type that I imagine some see...I live and let live... Life is too short! Respect others and hopefully they respect you. Money is just part of life...happiness is what you make of life. I am not rich nor will I try to act rich. I am what I am. I hope that I can contribute to Poland in the future and possibly help the country,in some way. I have been proud of being Polish (some may say point out I am first generation, USA) and always will be. My father fought for Poland and many in my family have given all they have, to a country they love. My uncle (recently passed on) beat a Russian in the Olympics in the 60's and brought a medal to Poland. I hope I can contribute in my own way.

I know what Poland has gone through and what it currently is... I plan on appreciating everyone I meet and everything I see!

Czesc!

If you're prepared to be surprised, and you accept those things that are (for whatever reason) different, you'll have a great time. Americans are generally liked in Poland, and since you speak the language they'll see you as a Pole who's come home.

Good luck!
