    In all the countries in the world, depending on the culture, people believe in certain things or events that will bring you good luck but also bad luck. Those things are called superstitions.

    In Mexico, for example, it is believed that on the New Year’s Eve, exactly after midnight, if you start running with a suitcase around your street… the next year you will travel a lot!! Many Mexicans do it and it is hilarious for me!

    Sometimes I’m fed up of everything. And a city especially. I get up in the morning  and I can see only traffic jams, smog and never ending complications. Then I leave for places I can feel a blues played in a rhythm of nature. These are my five favourite destinations.

    After becoming an EU member and having a huge transformation process, anyone can tell that something good is happening in Warsaw. Many old communist buildings gave way to modern sky scrapers, entertainment and services transformed to match that of other western capitals.

    During my last holiday stay in Poland I went to see an aristocratic residency of Potoccy in Lancut. Although it was not my first visit, it has definitely made the deepest impression in me.

However cliché this may sound, I felt there like our history is something more than only piles of dusty books in a library.

  • By Mariella @bridgekeepingtraveller.com I guess we all have countries which make us feel at home more than others. My parents, for example, love Greece, and they feel imbalanced when they don’t go every year. Most people get that. Greece has beaches, and islands, and ouzo, and lots of pretty old ruins.

    "A great itinerary and hopefully later , a diary of a trip to three Polish cities at the Baltic Coast. Gdansk, Sopot and Gdynia are called TriCity - and are  popular with tourists.
