I am sitting on a balcony at 11 PM, Sunday evening, enjoying a cool summer night breeze, listening to some acoustic music and couldn’t think of a better time to make this blog post.
I can’t believe its been a few weeks already! Going into this experience I had promised myself to write at least weekly, but now here we are, three weeks later and my blog is just sitting here collecting dust! However at the beginning of the week I promised myself to have something up, and of course in typical Juliet fashion , I am doing it at the very last minute , racing to do it before the clock strikes 12 so I can go to bed having checked that box 🙂 However, what matters is that I am here now, honoring my promise to myself 🙂
This is the longest I have spent in Europe, and so I am enjoying every minute of it! Time is just moving so fast and I’m seating here panicking, half of the things on my bucket list have not been done, and despite the long days time just flies by! But you know the good old saying, time flies when you’re in good company 🙂 I am blessed with a great team and I get to share most of my days with really awesome people I am lucky enough to call my friends.
Warsaw is a beautiful city, with wide streets and plenty of space. Everything feels very airy with plenty of outdoor restaurants with the sun shining bright, its hard to be in a bad mood around here! The people are very friendly, very polite always willing to help, which as a foreigner you always appreciate.
Almost in the middle of Warsaw is the charming Old Town that feels like you have traveled to a different city within minutes. With very cute alleys, cosy restaurants, Old Town has very charming and warm feel that around this time is flocked with tourists, which for me is perfect. Its the kind of place no matter how many times you visit, you never have enough of! I have a few things checked off on my list so far, such as tasting the famous traditional Polish dish Pierogi, relaxing at the River Vistula for the most breathtaking sunset. I have to experience it at least one more time before I bid Poland goodbye and of course visiting the Central point of Warsaw, the Palace of Culture and Science. This is however a bit of a cheat because I have my working space in this magnificent building. I am yet to visit Old Town by night, I can only imagine its beauty by night and many more adventures yet to come.
I am very happy to finally have this post up 🙂 The first step is usually the hardest but now I can’t wait to share with you all my experiences, Polish or other places I’ll visit during this period!
Lots of Love,
