There is so much I could say about Poland but I think I’ll stick to the golden rule:
In lieu, here are some pics!
Our airbnb was bomb! Hostels were dirt cheap but for $35/night you could get an entire apartment!
A Polish love story. and a fierce bag.
We went to Auschwitz and I took loads of photos but feel weirdly uncomfortable sharing them. Maybe because you can’t really capture the feeling of the place on an iphone? It was the strangest day, we had been having the coldest, windiest, rainiest weather during our time in Poland and then out of no where a perfect day. And by some weird twist of fate we visited on 9/11.
to end things on a better note, on our last night in poland we found the best restaurant near us and had plum crumble for dessert!
Summary: skip Warsaw if you can and spend two days in Krakow. I think the weather had a large part to why I didn’t have a great time but honestly if I had been traveling by myself at that point in my journey I would have gone somewhere else.
Guys it’s been for-ev-er and I am back from holiday. Blogging was kinda impossible with all the sketch wifi but now i’m back in the land of the free wifi and the blog is back in business! Here is the lowdown!
Camden Market has the best offerings foodwise. Get your grub on and try everything! I would be happy if mac and cheese were what the U.S. were actually known for as opposed to our actual reputation.
I didn’t end up eating anything in Camden (I know, cray) but I did head over to Neal’s Yard to try out a Buzzfeed suggestion. Intersting fact: a Monty Python filmaker lived here! Maybe explains the color scheme?
Kew Gardens is amazing. Using the actual definition of the word. I spent many hours there and there was no way of me seeing everything in one day, and I even used the little railroad cart that took you around. Scientists and other workers in Kew do research for medicine and even create face and body products sold in the UK. I had bought one the day before so it was pretty cool being there! I think Kew Gardens is also a big art in Elizabeth Gilbert’s book “The Signature of All Things”- on my to read list!
Bricklane is known for its street art and the best place for curry. you can barter with the people trying to get you to eat at their restaurants over the price. If you take an art tour, it’s going to be in this neighborhood. People like to say Camden is the hipster part but I think it’s because they haven’t been to Bricklane. See for yourself!
And thus ends part II. London you will always have my heart!
