Europe Part 2 | Poland

Nov 13, 2015
Last we I shared Part 1 of my trip with you about my time in Germany and today I am here with Part 2 about Poland! We first flew from Munich to Lublin, Poland and stayed there one night so we could tour Majdanek Concentration Camp. Our tour guide was awesome and he even taught us how to pronounce and understand some of the Polish words. Polish is such a hard language!

Our tour guide is on the far right.

The next morning we got up early and had to load our stuff into two large vans so we could drive from Lublin to Krakow. It was a 4 hour drive but I got to catch up on sleep, so I wasn't complaining. Just like we did in Germany, we took a walking city tour as soon as we dropped our stuff of at the hotel. Krakow is absolutely beautiful and there is so much history all around us. We visited the first University in Poland, Wawel Castle and Cathedral where there are many kings entombed in, and places that Pope John Paul II had attended.

This was our hotel in Krakow, it was really beautiful but it definitely reminded us all of the The Shining. Cree-py.

The old Jewish quarter where Jewish people lived before the war. There is a very small percentage of Jewish people still living there.

Home of the lady who invented waterproof mascara! Thank you!!

Traditional  Polish fast food!

Where the movie "Schindler's List" was filmed.

The Main Market Square in Krakow, Poland.

This was taken at the Oskar Schindler Factory tour!

Our last dinner in Europe, it was dark in the restaurant.

This trip was absolutely amazing and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat if I could! I had so much fun with this group of people and I made some life long friendships.  During our time in Krakow we went to Auschwitz and Auschwitz II- Birkenau Concentration Camps and that was a really rough day for all of us. I didn't cry, which is what most people said I would do, I just felt sick. I was disgusted with the heinous acts of torture and I felt like I was going to be sick the entire time. It also didn't help that I was having stomach problems that morning too though. 

I know this was a very picture heavy post but hey- when you take 900 photos in 10 days, it is hard to choose what to post. I decided to leave out all the pictures of  the concentration camps that I had because I didn't feel that they needed to be shared. If you want to see any, I will gladly share some with you though. 

Thanks for sticking through this!
