and then spent some time in Evia, a big island I presume.

oh nice, my first English teaching job was in Evia (poor Greek kids), have a great time.
How will you recognise Southern?
Will he be surrounded by a herd of giggling Polki?

I will, that is all you have to know;)

PS>I am a moody poster, so if I did not reply to some, please wait until I am in a mood.

as for the undersexed Berlin tour guide- he is gonna get it.

PSS. it is Ukrainian x-mas today, so I am off. Next week there is the Ukrainian New Years Eve and the big dance, so I will be attending and reporting the outcome - hold your breath.

I spent most of my time in the capital, Halkida. It was a good time, with a great seafront for sitting around drinking frappe.
I was there in the winter with only a drunken Scot for company so I got really good at backgammon and finding cheap bars.
The island is very big........with plenty of beaches and places to go....
There's a port where you can take a ferry to some smaller islands....called Kimi I think.

Kimi is a city of Evoia.It is not the best island.I would advise Rhodos,Samos,Corfu,Kreta,Mykonos or smaller islands like Santorini,Zakynthos.Or just follow the common slavic destinations Paralia Katerini,Leptokarya,Skiathos island places full of nice Poles,Czechs and Serbs.

Child... hmm you're right... it's actually a brilliant way of describing someone who's aged with fvck-all grace :D

What an in depth conclusion.

You know Flagless I am still young , but I think if you claim something opposite it may indicate that you may suffer from SPS :D.

Depression, hopelessness, cognitive rigidity, suicidality,.These men are angry. They are angry withthemselves (expressed as self hatred and depression), and with women.

Going back to the topic :
it needs to be insane to claim that dealing with -45 ᴼ C is easier than living in Poland with average temperatures circulating around -6 in the winter time. Additionally there is no wind chill factor here as it is in Canada with its vast plains stretching on the northern part of the entire country.

ec.gc.ca/meteo-weather/default.asp?lang=n&n=5FBF816A-1

Canadians are well aware of how much misery the wind chill can add to an already frigid day in winter. Knowing the wind chill is in fact an essential part of Canada's weather forecasts, as it provides everyone with the knowledge they need in order to stay safe in our worst weather.

For example, if the wind chill is -20 while the outside temperature is only -10°C, it means that your face will feel as cold as if it was a calm day (no wind) with a temperature of -20° C.

A recent survey indicated that 82 per cent of Canadians use wind chill information to decide how to dress before going outside in the winter. Many groups and organizations also use the wind chill index to regulate their outdoor activities.

In Toronto it is so cold in the wintertime that it is almost unbearable to take a walk in the park the wind chills the temperature more than 10 degrees down.

So if you compare our climate it is far better to live here than in Canada.

What happens if you prefer one of the Canadian climates?

What a stupid thing to come out with...

When was the last time you lived in Canada?

That's normal in any country.

In Toronto it is so cold in the wintertime that it is almost unbearable to take a walk in the park the wind chills the temperature more than 10 degrees down.

Last winter I was in Poland it was -18c, and with strong winds. So what's your point?

I visited Canada many times and also I have lived there for some time , So I can say about Ontario , NF, BC .

Everybody has got his preferences , I have got mine too.

Nobody including me claims that Poland has got hot climate , we live in a moderate climate with mild summers and not so harsh winters . I don`t like hot climates .

May I make some short digression ? I would never choose a country to live by the type of a climate , for me there are other factors which are more important .

Hahaha. I'm sorry for your misery but that reminds me of the train rides back in my day. I would get out of the train feeling the same way!! Some rides were simply brutal.

I was simply commenting on the Polish weather. Not on the factors for moving back.
true, the Canadian winters are harsh most of the time, yet the Canadian people in general are way much nicer then Poles, or at least are polite and not invasive. You are just so provocative most of the time,annoying and full of denial. You seem to be right and everyone else is wrong. Strange and doesn't create room for healthy discussion.

Back to the Polish weather: it sucks most of the time even though it is mild in comparison to Canadian one.

That's your choice, others choose a place to live just for that reason.

well, lets see- today in Warsaw it is probably above zero, dreary, rainy and grey. what can I do outdoors today? **** all. If I were in my home town I would be able to go skating on an outdoor rink and treat my kids to a hot chocolate, we could go cross country skiing at a national park, there is a ski hill about 40 minutes drive from my old house or just even go play in the snow.

what does a family of four do outside when the weather is rainy, dreary and muddy in Warsaw?
In Canada we have learned to deal with the cold- dress for it and you can still have fun. In Poland people hide from it. My idea of fun for my family involves an outdoor activity- can't do much of that in this weather.

there must be a skating indoor rink in wawa pip, I even found one in Szczecin yesterday. They even sharpened my skates. If it wasn't for the overbearing parents dragging their children on the ice- instead of letting them have some fun, I would be much happier. There were hot dogs, hot chocolate and coffee.

there are a few but they are so crowded that the ice is hacked to bits within the first half hour. my kids were playing hockey last year but this year they wanted a break, it wasn't very organized.

i do like living in Poland- i am not whining, but every once in a while....I am homesick- like right now.

As a Polish American I am glad you post here.

In my opinion, you give an articulate and balanced view on Poland.

Thank you . I highly appreciate your comments you post on PF .

why do you dress like an aging tart?

Where is it shown ? The dress I wear is in green , made of silk . Are silk green dresses a synonymus of tarts in UK ? Do you think I should wear my suits in subdued colours for parties . Are English women always so jealous and bitter when they see attractive woman . Polish women are not ashamed of their look . All business women I know wear such dresses for parties . Your comments about my look is unsubstantial .

sorry to tell you moania.....your dress is fine..its the naked shoulders, the bottle blonde and the pleading doggy look. It's really not attractive and I can assure you I am not jealous...;)

Aha , a bit of my shoulders , medium blonde hair and my face made you think I am a tart . Sorry , but I think you are a very bitter person .

i will second that.
the funny thing is that this person never misses a chance to tell everybody how beautiful and smart she is- funny, I just see an aging prostitute with too much botox.

This is getting too personal, and you may get suspended if you carry on with these personal attacks. You might get this thread moved to the off topic as well and closed.

This thread has gone beyond trying to clean it. It has gone off topic and is a prime candidate to be thrown into the off topic where it will get swept away with the other rubbish when the next clean up begins. I would urge the OP to steer it back to the topic as it is not going to be left here to encourage members to insult each other.

Poland will never be home to its foreign contingent, I am constantly reminded I am not Polish, there is so much complexity about the Poles and Poland even they continue to be perplexed by it, the communist/socialist past stills runs deep in the veins of most Poles over the age of 35, it is restraining Poland's future potential, a classic example of this is Poland's road reconstruction over the last four years.

The need to get away from Poland and recharge the batteries, is the main thing that has helped me survive here,Poland is a wonderful country and has some beautiful places to visit,putting aside the everyday problems created by its nationals, it has the possibility to be one of the jewels in the crown of Europe.

Sure you do.

A question for you - how would you compare people from Toronto to Polish people?
OP aphrodisiac 11 | 2,437

no, I don't. I am not a mod. Polmed and southern were spamming, as they always do. They disregard anything and everything as long as they get to say what they want to say. They are not able to carry on a healthy conversation.

how would you compare people from Toronto to Polish people?

nice, trying to steer it back on topic;). No comparison. Toronto's population is over 50% multicultural. That should give you an idea. Whoever is familiar with multicultural society and the cities would understand.

this is true. we didn't go to Canada last year, normally we go for summer holiday- and I have a feeling it is starting to take its toll. even two weeks to recharge the batteries, so to speak, is enough and by the end of it I am ready to return to Warsaw.

Short visits to Scotland and Ireland, you will find parts of Canada there, a change is as good as a rest.

If you are not aware of it, this place is worthwhile visiting for fresh ideas idealhomeshow.co.uk If you are a business owner the entrance is free.
