Polish people have a weird attitude torwards tourists

Nearly twenty years back or so

While I've actually been in Poland for that twenty years (or more)....

Random Polish people aren't going to fall over someone because they're a foreigner. Foreigners (including ones who speak Polish) just aren't that rare anymore. I was in a work meeting earlier today (conducted in Polish but most of the participants weren't Polish).

And most people don't care or think about tourists at all. Those in tourist dependent sectors will be a mixed bag.

I avoid them. They speak lousy English with bad accents. The worst of it is that they don't catch sarcasm or jokes. Totally useless as a company. For everything else I have google.

Exactly the sort you should NOT avoid, Rich!! If you want your vacation to be just like home....STAY HOME-:))
The smart travellers's the guy or gal who goes exactly to the places the guidebooks either omit or advise against.
Heck, if you don't believe me, ask Rick Steves.

To me, the only foreign trips worth the effort and the aggravation are the nostalgia trip. Then it's not the people but the places that I want to see. People I used to know are either dead or don't care to see me just as much as I don't care to see them. Any such reunion would inevitably lead to "America" is this or that - bottom line, not good. I don't need that crap.

Sorry mate, I just don't get that.
Do you really believe that America is all there is?
That you could not learn anything by travelling to a country other than your nostalgia trip to Poland?
Geez......I find that hard to believe coming from someone who I know is an intelligent man with a heart.
Or are you just being beligerant?

No, I really am not. I have been to Tokyo, Paris, Monte Carlo, Dresden, Frankfurt, Brussels, Amsterdam, Maastricht, The Hague, Cancun, and Tijuana. There is nothing there I would want to see again and spend 9 hours on a bloody plane to get there. Poland, for obvious reasons, was an exception and needs no explanation.

I love cruising the US. This is my home. They speak my language and are just the way I like it. My favorite objects: state Capitols and old courthouses. As soon as that "pandemic" bs is really over, I will hit the road and cover the remaining states. If there is one place I would like to visit it would be Russia and go on that train from Moscow to St. Petersburg. With the a-holes in DC, I am not sure if it would be wise, though.

Do you want me to repost 67? Now you are impersonating Lyzko. Amazement without counterarguments is just that - an amazement and nothing else.

No, the Trans Siberian Railway journey is from Moscow to Vladivostok .

Are you advising or lecturing? What the hell is that "no" for?
pawian 179 | 16,364

In our exchanges I always lecture you even when I advise coz I feel you need it desperately.

This thread is drifting of topic, and needs to get back on track

Yes, it is drifting, indeed, I am sorry, I will try to put it back on track.

Yes, I agree, Polish people are too tolerant towards weird tourists. They close an eye to various crazy acts by foreign tourists. No, it isn`t money-oriented lenience. Poles are just extremely hospitable and want everybody feel welcome and at home here.

Polish hospitallity is known in the world.

Not really, in my experience Polish hospitality has come off as needy. To my great dissatisfaction, I love being gregarious and hospitable. When people don't appreciate it, or start behaving like an cat. I get rather agitated and sour
