After (hopefully) a good night of sleep, it was time to start our journey together. We took a 75 minute bus ride to Birkenau (also known as Auschwitz II). This is the death camp, where over 1.5 million Jews were murdered (Birkenau is the largest Jewish ...

Finally arrived in Krakow after a day of traveling on trains. Krakow has always been a destination of choice for me since my grandmother's (on my Mom's side) parents are from there. Unfortunately the first two hostels we went to were booked, but we were ...

Back to the Baltic

A travel blog entry by kalendradee

Our train tickets actually went all the way to Gdynia so we had to pay attention around 20:00 to not miss our stop. The funny thing was we'd stopped and couldn't see any signs for where we were, then the train starts pulling forward again a few minutes ...
