Adventures & Memorable Moments
Follow along with me on my journey in life. With this blog I will attempt to share some of the wonderful events taking place in my life and share some of my thoughts.
It was a successful flight! After leaving Boston, I was taken upon the steel bird to Munich where I would then change planes. I was suprised that the flight only took abut 6 1/2 hours from Boston to Munich. I had a 1 1/2 hour layover in Munich and then took a plane from Munich to Krakow. The flight from Munich to Krakow only took about 1 hour 10 minutes. I took more photos form the plane than I normally would have because I wanted to play with the Geotagging function of my new digital camera. I recently bought a Sony DSC-HX7V digital camera. When viewing my photos in my photo gallery, when you see the small globe icon, click on it and it will show you a google map with the location that the photo was taken.
I landed in Krakow safe and sound. The weather was great... clear skies and warm. This is a lot better weather than Poland has been having. It has beed raining here a lot recently. I was asked to bring along some good weather, and it looks like it worked. I hope it stays this way for the duration of the trip. I was met by Lukasz Firkowski (My 6th cousin) and his mother. We loaded up the car and headed to Dabrowa Gornicza. I took some time to get a Cell phone working for my stay and exchange a few dollars into złoty.
Next stop... Sosnowiec - This is where Lukasz lives when he is not working at the Hospital. I dropped off all my Luggage and took a few moments to relax a bit.
Lukasz has recently renovated this apartment, and his choice of style and decorating choices is perfect.
After taken a rest we went back to Dabrowa Gornicza to visit with Lukasz's parents, Jan and Maria Firkowski where Dinner and a few more of my favorite beers were waiting. I have found my favortie Polish Beer (Debowa Mocne)
Maria had done a great job preparing a wonderful meal for us. Following dinner we chatted a bit and then we took a relaxing walk around Dabrowa Gornicza. There had been a lot of new places built since i was here last.
It was a great way to wind down from the flight. Now I wonder how long it will take to get over the Jet Lag.We headed back to Lukasz's home and had a bite to eat before it was time to go to sleep.
Stay tuned for further adventures. Links to todays photos are here
