Poland was the first country we visited. And on a lovely sunny day .

Gdynia is a small town at the Baltic sea .We took the shuttlebus and the driver drove us to the harbor where there was not much for us to do. There were a few old warships which were visited by lots of schoolkids, whole classes I imagined.We walked a bit , looked around and then we went back to the ship. I am sure there was lots more to do but this just  was not our day .


The first thing we saw when we got out of the bus : Starbucks., also in Poland.

Mmmm nice coffee.


And keep the place clean folks. Can’t read any of it but I am sure I got it right: )))



Lots of fountains but they were not working at this time.


In these countries we saw many murals.

Fences in front of the windows too.



The old man was struggling with his bike so he walked . There were lots of benches around so he rested a  lot.



And you know what , there even was a KFC.


One of the small warships.

It looks very nice, certainly the fountain with the mushroom like statues.

Glad you had a nice day for your visit to Poland. Starbucks seems to be everywhere. The murals are colorful and pretty. Thanks for sharing your visit. Have a happy weekend! said...

Lieve Rietje,

Wat jammer dat al die mooie fonteinen niet in werking waren.
Dat lijkt me echt fantastisch om
te zien.
In ieder geval hebben jullie meteen
een lekkere koffieshop gevonden.
En was de koffie in Polen Lekker?

Het lijkt me wel erg druk staan al
die muurschilderingen, wel heel
grappig om te zien dat ieder land
weer zijn eigen gewoontes heeft.

Veel liefs,

De S.tarbucks, dat was wel een hele mooie binnenkomer ;-). Ik ben benieuwd naar het vervolg van je reis!

Alvast een fijn weekend, Riet. Liefs, Ingrid

Illustrations help a lot. Love the warship!

A quiet town it looks like, I love the picture of the man and bike. I never can get good people pictures. So funny that Starbucks was the first thing you saw there. (It is good coffee) but I imagine you would rather see something unique to each country.

Dat is jammer dat er niet zo veel te zien was, een Starbucks en KFC is niet echt het bezoeken waard. Het oorlogschip ziet er indrukwekkend uit, ligt het klaar voor Rusland?

Poland is one of the countries I wish to visit. I have roots there and I especially enjoyed your selection of photos.

Dat was een stille, bijna wat kille start. Hopelijk viel er bij de volgende stops wat meer te zien en te beleven.

Some might say you were there at the wrong time because eveerything was so quiet, but I think I would have liked it that way ... everthing except, I think I would have wanted to see the fountains flowing. A lovely, peaceful walk where I have never been ... Thank you, Riet ... it was a pleasure.
