Puddle Jumpers

Enjoying life, off the hamster wheel

Greetings from Poland! (Day 7)

Greetings from Poland! Yes, Poland!

This entry finds us on a train from Berlin to Poland. We’re going to Ingrid’s dad’s birthtown, Kwidzyn, formerly Marienwerder when it was still in German territory. Ingrid’s pidgin-German has increased it’s vocab from about 3 words to 5. Neil now knows 3 German words. We’ll wow and amaze you when we get home.

For brevity’s sake, we’ll completely simplify our trip so you can see what we’ve been up to these last few weeks. Needless to say, every stop has been amazing, and everyone who has opened their homes to us have made us feel so welcome and comfortable. So, for your reading pleasure, here’s a snapshot of the puddles we’ve explored, taking you from day 7 to the present:


Prepped to leave for Göteborg by doing laundry (fun). Had dinner with Ingrid’s mom’s cousin Jan and his wife Ingrid and their family. Gunilla (Jan’s sister) was there too, and it was super to see her again, as well.

Later, we were treated to the sounds of brass orchestra. Jan plays in the police brass orchestra in Stockholm. Here he is in his hat:

The night over, we went home. What a great evening!
