Sep 6, 2017 - Poznan, Poland

I arrived in Poznan after a five hour very long bus ride on the Polskibus. This was the first bus ride that I did not enjoy as the seats were uncomfortable and too close together. Luckily I had no seat mate. In addition, it rained most of the way and the ride was dark and gloomy and the fog lifted off the warm and humid ground making it appear even more dreary. Enough of that literacy, I arrived in Poznan in the dark and wondered if the city had paid its electric bill. It was about 7 PM but none of the city street lights were illuminated. I...

Apr 10, 2016 - Is there a chicken in your backpack?

I was watching 'The Ultimate Braai Master' on the travel channel. The Poles are obsessed with it (how is it that I had never heard of a 'braai' until Garry introduced us to them in South Africa... yet the Poles are right up to speed on them?! Go figure!) Anyways the episode I was watching was 'backpack chicken' and yes: exactly what that means - how to cook a chicken in your backpack while hiking. For anyone interested, it's on YouTube & Facebook. Google it. But it was hilarious because all I could think about for the next 24hrs was whether...

May 5, 2011 - De Poznan à Berlin

Bonjour, À travers la Pologne je me déplace en train, donc je peux voir le territoire, la campagne. J’ai parfois l’impression de passer à travers des campagnes québécoises (sans Gilles Duceppe). La végétation, les champs de culture, bref comme un air de déjà vu. Ma découverte de la Pologne se continue. Je me suis rendu à Gdansk, au Nord, port de mer sur la Baltique. Avec ces deux petites voisines Sopot (station balnéaire) et Gyndia, cette région est stratégique pour la Pologne. À mon arrivé j’ai eu l’impression de débarquer à Hambourg ou...

Encore l'Europe

May 4, 2005 - Poznan

Poznan is a university town that sees many German businessmen because of all there conventions. Consequently there are very few budget accomodations. We finally found the only hostel in the city. The man who worked there was pleasant. He did not speak English. He liked to speak German. After we both discovered that we spoke Russian he continued to speak to me in German. I told him Russian would be better. He was suprised and excited that I understood Russian. He said that most of the young people only speak German or French anymore. In his...

Here We Go Again

Apr 12, 2005 - Poland -- Poznan (day 2)

The lady at the ticket window did not speak English. Good thing I had printed out the train schedule before leaving Belgium so it was easy just to hand the paper to her. We had no problem catching the train and the 3 ½ hours went by quickly. We checked into the Hotel Rzymski which got 3 stars in the travel guides. Since there were no hostels in the area, we decided to stay at this nice hotel which was well located in the city. We were really hungry so we found a nice Chinese restaurant near the hotel and had a nice dinner for only about...
