Another catch up complete. And the book page is done.

I've used tickets I had collected from my trip there.

I've been to Krakow twice. I loved every moment.

It might seem strange but I did almost identical things on both visits.

I went to the most amazing Italian restaurant on both visit. If you know me on real life you will know I'm not a fan of Italian restaurants. I love the food put proper home made fair like my friends papa used to make.

I also went to the salt mines and Auschwitz both trips. Both are amazing places for their own reasons.

I've found it very hard when describing Auschwitz to people who haven't been and I stick to my disruption as amazing. That word possibly seems distasteful but the place is so hard to describe

As you go in through those most famous gates you see what could be a low rise modernish industrial park. Offices. Dentists doctors etc. it's only when you listen and it's very quite and when you go inside the buildings to the exhibitions.

I cried when you have been to Auschwitz they give you a few mins before takin you on a bus to birkenu sorry I can never spell that.

The first time I went I phone my gran in the gap. I love my gran but she drives me batty but I needed to feel connected. She was born in 1931 and her dad served in WWII. To think this told place not all that long ago and to think how the world could be so different if the war ended a different way

Ok sorry. I digress. I you get a chance go.

I did many other things in Poland but as I'm on my iPod I really am struggling to say more

I much appreciate your description of the places and how you reacted to them, when you were in Poland. Lovely to be able to use the genuine articles in your postcard and travel book.
