So another WIZA is on it’s way, as I wait for the decision from the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in New Delhi. My visit will be in August this year, for 6 weeks. Not staying as long, but I hope to punch in as much into this blog as possible during that time, with the aim of one small post a day, aiming for a total of 42 blog posts. Sounds like a difficult target, but better to set the goal now, to at least try and follow it when I am there.
The last year that I was in Poland, for reasons not inexplicable, Food became the dominant topic of content. This year I’m gunning for a couple of other relevant and more practical or useful information.
One is public transportation and how to get around by yourself in the most cost-effective way.
The second part would focus more on current cultural trends in Poland, relating specifically to it’s Art, Architecture, Music and History, with perhaps one or two cities in relevance. This is a little more of a challenging topic to conquer, but we will see where it goes.
All this having been said, I’d like to share two useful traveler/visitor/migrant links for Poland.
1) Pitu-Pitu (http://www.pitupitu.info/en/)
Mobile Application for Planning your Cultural-Social-Party-Gastronomical experience in Poland.
Started by friends in Gdansk a couple of years back, this project is fast gaining momentum and is a super useful socio-cultural tool for both the short-term traveler and the long-term visitor to Poland. Select the city from the drop down menu on the top right corner, and voila, you will be presented with a rich menu of things to do during your stay.
2) Foreigners In Poland.co (http://www.foreignersinpoland.com/polish-language.html)
While my blog aims to be more of a narrative of experiences, the link I have shared up here is a beautiful practical website for travelers to Poland, more suited to the needs of the long-term or returning visitor. From getting around, to cultural integration to Polish Language courses, you will find a lot out here.
That’s all from me now. See you in Poland in August ! Love from India.
