Why you should think twice before traveling to Poland


Why you should think twice before traveling to Poland

In the interest of full disclosure, I need to share that I was born in Poland and traveled throughout the country extensively. Over the years, my travel wanderlust took me all over the world and I came to call USA my second home, although lately, I’ve been seriously infatuated by Australia where I currently indulge in my affair with Sydney. Yep, I have to admit, I am not the one to preach geographic monogamy but as a pathological dreamer and romantic, I do have to say there is just nothing sweeter in life than discovering new lands and falling head over heels for exotic destinations, knowing that a piece of my heart will be stolen forever and I’ll never be whole again. After exploring 5 continents and over 50 countries around the world, I know for sure that Poland is that special lover and more I travel, more my heart calls for a reunion. So before it is too late for you, here is 29 Reasons Why Should Think Twice Before You Visit Poland!  

1. There are no Polar bears in Poland…just cute little squirrels…

2. It is dark and grey in Poland…

4. Nothing new is building either…

5. Polish towns just lack charm altogether…

7. Museums are boring…

8. Wide open spaces are hard to come by…

9. Spectacular scenery impossible to find…

10. And good luck spotting beautiful mountain views


11. Or stunning coastline….

19. Just a cold and sad winter….


20. The life in Poland must be pretty dull…


21. Lacking adventure…


22. If only the food had more variety…


23. And if Polish people knew how to have fun…


24. This could have been a pretty cool country, where beer is flowing and Kielbasa is grilling…


25. And even though not all Poles are pole dancers, sometime they do pretty cool stuff…

28. And weddings are a 2-day party indulgence


29. And maybe, just maybe then Vince Vaughn would wear a Polish t-shirt, use Polish last name or have Polish flags everywhere in a movie or two…


But if all that was true, you would completely and utterly fall in love with Poland and would never want to leave, so it’s better to think twice before you pay a visit.
