A visit to Poland - September 2018

It is important to know, especially in view of the bilateral relations that once again rocks our countries, how Servas members in Poland welcome us and show us their beautiful country and tradition.

Together  with Mirek, my dear Servas host, I rode a bicycle and visited various sites in the Warsaw Ghetto compound, while Mirek explained about them well. In addition, we spent time together in his country house.

 I enjoyed the simplicity and the connection to nature. Mirek introduced me to places that are not worn by tourists, such as small chapels, pasture areas and a river where I had my end-summer swimming.

Thank you Mirek, Thank you Poland.
