When it came my turn to select the cities for our Eurotrip, Warsaw was at the top of my list. My grandfather was from Poland, but he died before my third birthday — much too soon for me to ask all the questions about where he came from. So I’ve always known that once the opportunity presented itself, I would find myself in Poland.
In 2012, while on my Adventures of an Island Girl: Sydney Edition trip, I was finally able to meet my Polish cousins who, up until then, I knew very little about. During my quick trip to Melbourne, I got to learn about my Polish family tree, and learned that there were cousins still in Warsaw.
Maybe it’s because too many months have passed, but I’m having difficulty putting into words my experience in Warsaw and the contentment I felt chatting and laughing with my cousins and listening to stories about my grandfather. So, here are some photos instead!
There’s just one stop left: Athens, Greece!
