Somewhere in Europe

I had grand plans of writing extensive blog posts about my trip to Europe but considering i’m now half way through, i’ll summarise here and expand later..


Spent a few days in Lodz, Poland with my fathers side of the family. The picture below is of me and my cousin. I can honestly say that I know more Polish than before and can ask for a beer, train, bus etc and can call out dog, cat & cow 🙂   It was really great to meet up with them again and i really fewel a special connection with Poland as a result.

Apart from spending time with family Ruth & I managed to visit Częstochowa, Krakow & Auschwitz.

    Hope you enjoyed Poland – I’ve been twice and I love it. Krakow is a beautiful city (I hope to visit again soon), and I still have a hole in my heart from when I visited Auschwitz. My wife is Polish, so that’s my connection.

    Hey Mark,

    We’ve met a few times at these Flex shindigs over the last couple years. Next time I will throw a few words in Polish your way. 🙂

    I lived/worked in Poland a couple years and speak Polish with my wife everyday.
