A few days in Poland – 1st Stop in Łódź

A few days in Poland – 1st Stop in Łódź

Did meet Michal at my last trip to India. He is from Siradz in Poland. Told him I visit and so I did!

The ride – had a seat upstairs with nice view and despite an almost full bus 2 seats for me the whole trip! Great!

Morning in Turawa close to Opole. Did even manage to sleep for a few hours. In Opole all the eurolines stop and the passengers get into other busses towards their final destination. Since we went to Sieradz our bus was the smallest. Michal did pick me up in a nice 5er Beamer with his friend Michal and we drove to Lodz. I was able to sleep a few hours and in the afternoon we went downtown.

They took me to a place called Manufaktura. Now it is an arts centre, shopping mall, and leisure complex. The biggest building is an old spinning mill that was built in 1877. Designed by the famous architect Hilary Majewski in 1872. Got some food and a beer here.

Liberty Square or Plac Wolnisci as they call it here with the Parafia Zeslania Ducha Swietego in the back.

Same corner on the opposite site. There was a time when people actually where thinking about the buildings and how each one affects the other ones and how a street looks. And how the city will look etc. etc.

Clever invention that I did see many times but never took a picture. There you go – the dishes will dry alone – saves you work so you have more time to play!

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.
