I headed to Boleslawiec, Poland for a weekend of Pottery Shopping with a few friends. Poland makes country #11, slowly crossing places off!
After a few hours of driving we stopped at Gorlitz, Germany which is close to the Germany/Poland border. While exploring the city we came across a bridge which gave you the chance to walk into Poland. So now I can say I have walked to Poland, ha ha! We came across the hotel which was used in the movie " The Grand Budapest Hotel".
From there we arrive early evening and checked into our hotel, which was called the Garden Hotel. The gardens were in winter mode, but I could image how pretty it would be in the summer. The hotel had a Victorian feel to it. We spent all day Saturday exploring different shops getting all sort of pottery. Poland uses Zloty as their currency. When we were there it was $ 1 US to 4 Zloty. We took a break for lunch and ate at the Log Cabin restaurant, where we split a platter of Poland food. I had different pierogies filled with potato/cheese, mushroom/sauerkraut and minced meat. Then tried dessert pierogies with blueberry instead. Sorry I didn't take any pictures.
Sunday morning we headed home and arrived later afternoon.
