Mar 10, 2016 - Częstochowa here we come!!

The blue 'kropka' is again leading the way on my iPad. We departed Krakow early in the morning (after our big hearty breakfast!) to hopefully make it to Częstochowa before noon. I had not been to this city yet, so was really excited to come here. (When Monika and I were here 4 years ago, we went to Oświęcim & Katowice, so I skipped these this time and we decided to come to Częstochowa instead).

I said that more hope awaited in Czestochowa for a reason. Jasna Gora Sanctuary is the home of the Icon of the Black Modonna. Within the walls of this sanctuary thousands of miracles have happened, so was a very powerful place to visit. Saturday night we did not do much because it was late, but I did get to try some really interesting Polish food and I still don't know what...
