St. Alexander’s Church

Getting out of the house for a walk is the only remedy for not just sitting and eating and eating and eating.  We got out for another afternoon walk to work up an appetite and to explore more of Warsaw.    On the Three Crosses Square surrounded by  Hugo Boss, Burberry, Church’s, Ermenegildo Zegna, Max Mara, Coccinelle, W. Kruk, JM Weston, […]

Churches in Warsaw

Stary Dom

Storming of Warsaw

There is much that can be said about navigating the Polish bureaucratic maze and perhaps even more that shouldn’t be said about the same. I have to say that while no one is particularly helpful about what we need to do, everyone is exceptionally nice and polite about it.   I feel like we are […]

To Poland and Back

Today we are going to Warsaw!  For me it is a first trip back to Poland in 29.5 years.  For us, as a family, it is the first trip to Poland.  We are going to be staying in Loziska just outside Warsaw with Anna’s cousin Robert.  The drive itself is about 960km but we managed […]
