For those of you who don’t know, my husband and I are both Polish. Ever since our wedding we have been planning a trip to Poland, but something always came up and we kept putting it off. Early this summer we were invited to two weddings that happened to be in the same month and a week apart from one another. We took this opportunity and finally made our way to Poland. During our visit we attended two weddings, visited family and friends, and toured the country from the Baltic Sea to the Tatry Mountains. We have seen more of the country in those two weeks than we ever did living there as children. Although we came back extremely exhausted, this has been one of the greatest experiences and vacations ever.

We decided to hike around Morskie Oko, and then found this awesome trail that leads to Czarny Staw (another beautiful pond much higher in the mountains). This hike was very intense; it was basically hiking straight up a mountain. When we reached the top the views were some of the most amazing views I have ever seen. So worth the effort!

We couldn’t be happier to have had the opportunity to travel to Poland and spend time with our family and friends. Poland is a beautiful country and we cannot wait to go back!!
