Visiting Auschwitz

Visiting Auschwitz

This excursion is sponsored by EnjoyPolen.com It has taken me three months to write this blog post, but here it is: my visit to Auschwitz. I think it’s just so hard to know where to begin and what to share. Just as I wrote in this blog post, there are people today who deny the whole holocaust and it’s so important to keep the memory of what happened to more than a million human beings in this place alive. This is…

Wieliczka Salt Mine – Kraków, Poland

Wieliczka Salt Mine – Kraków, Poland

This excursion is sponsored by EnjoyPolen.com One of the biggest tourist attractions in Kraków is the Wieliczka Salt Mine. During my trip to Poland with my mother and my grandmother this summer, I had the opportunity to visit the salt mine with a Swedish speaking guide from EnjoyPolen. I’m not a typical organized mass tourist (read more about the different travel types here) but I have to admit that it was so convenient to be picked up outside our hotel and…

Travel Diary: Kraków Day 4

Travel Diary: Kraków Day 4

We have reached the travel diary from my last day in Kraków! We only had a couple of hours before the taxi was picking us up so we decided to only stay in Kazimierz, the old Jewish quarters were we had stayed during our visit Poland. This was probably my favorite part of Kraków since it felt genuine, no tourist shops or big brands like Starbucks or H&M anywhere. Just small stores with one of a kind items and so…

We got the opportunity to go there with a Swedish speaking guide from EnjoyPolen which were really great since nothing got lost in translation. We got off the bus and got informed where the bathroom was and where we could buy drinks, had a 15-minute break and then…

Sharing Photos From Auschwitz

Sharing Photos From Auschwitz

During my visit to Kraków this summer, I went to Auschwitz. The decision to visit Auschwitz wasn’t hard for me, I have always thought of it as a place that you probably have to visit to really understand what happened there. My biggest dilemma before I got there though (being a travel blogger and all) was if I really should photograph my visit there. During a 5-year-period, more than a million human beings lost their lives to such unnecessary evil…

I’m absolutely going to write more about the salt…

Travel Diary: Kraków Day 1

Travel Diary: Kraków Day 1

I’m home again from Kraków. I went there quite spontaneously with my mother and my grandmother on a four-day trip. This was my first time in Poland and as you surely know, I always get a little extra excited when I get to explore a “new” country and Kraków was a really good start! DAY 1 We arrived in Kraków early in the morning and didn’t do much more than leaving our bags at the hotel before we head out…
