Another pretty city

As I said before, Wrocław station is beautiful. But the city itself is stunning as well! Here are just some photos from the day~

The dolls’ theatre. Beautiful building, from every side, with a magical park/garden. I think dolls wander around there in the night, having fun and playing games after performing the whole day.

There’s also an entrance to the ministry of magic. The guardian seems to be so done though (“Man it’s raining, just leave me alone”)

School mixed with church, mixed with some kind of a museum. Pretty weird, pretty cool.

Probably the most surprising thing, inside the old factory building there was a whole huge market going on. Honestly what the freaking potato

One of my favourite parts, the river. It was so calm and peaceful, I loved it so much. There’s just something about water that makes the place feel enchanted.

View from one of the many bridges. It’s a city of bridges after all. Pretty romantic.

One of the best building in the city, especially in the golden hour. It reminded me of jurrasic park for some reason. Magnificent.

The area around is incredible as well. I’m so pleased with the architecture of this city.

And now for the bonus photo!

Greetings from Christmas market!!! It was huge. Definitely worth seeing too ^^

See you soon! ❤

I might have overpacked

Being so fascinated with Newt Scamander’s suitcase I decided to make my own bigger too!

Engorgio spell wasn’t the best choice I suppose (magic gone wrong ^^’)

Yesterday I had a pleasure of visiting Wrocław, a Polish city of beautiful architecture! Can you even see how beautiful the station is?

The suitcase was cool too, it actually has little holes, and when you look through them there are photos of the city inside! Isn’t it awesome?

It was a great start to our trip which I’m going to show a bit more in the next post ;3

Bye bye 😚

An adventure! Part 3: the castle

Last stop during our trip to the mountains was the Chojnik castle.

Unfortunately we didn’t have much time to explore, since we needed to catch a train home. But still, it was super awesome! Even though the climb took more time than expected, I enjoyed it the most. All the happy people on the way made the journey much cooler!

There were some caves on the way and little children had so much fun exploring them. Parents not as much, haha.

Castle itself is a popular tourist destination. It’s hard to take a photo and not get a crowd in it!

Even though it’s old and it’s basically ruins, the castle felt somehow cosy, I think it’s because of all the plants slowly swallowing it.

One of the most exciting part was the tallest tower. You could actually climb it! View from the top was astonishing.

One way you could see civilization. The other – beauty of nature.

Isn’t it beautiful?

The trip was dreamy. I got a chance to go to the mountains, I got proposed to, I have so many good memories. What else can I say?

Let’s go again! ;3

Can’t sleep

Dark clouds don’t want to leave me alone and I can’t sleep. It’s so frustrating. Especially because I have work tomorrow. So let’s write something.

Here in the forest, where trees are green,

Foxes are asking – where have you been?

And you just answer out of the blue

I’ve been traveling, I swear it’s true!

They want souvenirs, stories and food

Oh they are really not in the mood.

So you just give them your pretty smile

Which made the foxes totally fine

Now they are listening to every word

About the mountains, monsters and gold

Instant fun with instax

I’ve always wanted to have a Polaroid camera. Since I was little, the idea of catching a moment in a picture in just a few seconds fascinated me. And so, I waited and waited. Because you know, film is expensive and you can’t take multiple photos, etc. etc.

BUT taking a picture with this kind of camera is like magic. You don’t edit the photo, if you make a mistake, then the mistake stays. That’s what makes these photos unique. They show your photography skills, or just simply capture the scene with your friends or objects you like 😉

And, for me, they are quite romantic!

Camera I have is instax mini 8! I absolutely love it. Even though I don’t have photography skills at all, haha

Toruń! Part 2: city

Last time you could see a bit of gingerbread museum, this time I want to show you the city!

The old town looks absolutely stunning.

Walking around is a pleasure. Next to the old town is a river so it’s got a feeling of the seaside port.

One of the highlights was definitely a church. Church tower to be specific. You can climb it (which is quite challenging) and see an amazing view of the city!

Inside of the tower was interesting too of course.

Lat picture is of someone I’m sure you all know. Say hello!

Toruń! Part 1: Piernikis

Hello, Juliet here! I feel very adventurous lately :3 So on Saturday I went for a trip with my Bear. Trip to Toruń, Polish capital of gingerbread!

The first part will be about the gingerbread museum. Which is not really a museum but a bakery. The museum tour was a show and an interactive one!

First the witch told us about all the ingredients of the gingerbread and what are their functions. She has shown all of them to us. Then came the baker and showed us how to make a dough with a little help of visiting children. Then came a little quiz, which was fun ’cause we got to remember better the stuff about “pierniki”.

Then came the exciting part! We could make our own gingerbread! We got the dough (prepared weeks earlier, because the dough has to wait for a long time before being put into the right shape and baked) and we could make the gingerbread into the shape we wanted using special wooden forms. Then we had to wait for it to be baked, so we could take it as a souvenir.

Second part of the show, was the bakery from the beginning of XX century. There we could see how the machinery started to slowly take over. People started to produce more in a shorter time. Also, to save money, cheaper ingredients started to be used, sugar instead of honey for example.

Later we had a chance to decorate gingerbread but I’m not really talented at it. We took our art piece home as a souvenir.

The whole place smelled so good!!! I absolutely loved it. And the experience was cool. Especially because the workers talked in the traditional manner which was funny and very cool! I enjoyed their explanations the most :3

See you soon in the next part about the city! ^^

Village from the past!

Hello! Yesterday I went to an awesome event, the Archeology Festival. The weather was definitely English… But I had a lot of fun anyway!

The event was held in a reconstructed prehistoric village filled with not only merchants and barbarians, but very handsome Scottish gentlemen as well. Cool, right?

The main attraction was the battle. Well, a lot of battles to be precise. Men dressed as warriors were fighting all the time. But some of them came on a stage and gave a short explanation about their costumes and weapons.

When it comes to houses in the village, all were crowded and people were selling things inside. The empty ones were very dark and usually full of smoke from the fire. They were so cosy! I managed to take a photo of some herbs drying near the ceiling.

There were tents as well. This area is supposed to be the Roman camp. Unfortunately everyone went to participate in one of the battles so the camp was empty.

Here you can see a clay oven, used mostly to bake bread. I think I saw three of them yesterday.

Don’t forget about animals! Only cows remained outside, because of the weather. Brave ones!

Sometimes you have to travel. That’s why you need boats. This one was very pretty!

BONUS photo. You better not make me angry! Haha

You could try on some armour and pose with weapons. They were quite big and very heavy! It was so much fun!

The final event was an Irish dance performance. The dancers taught us some moves after the show! I think it was the best point of the festival!

That’s it for today. You should definitely give a festival like this a try, it’s just awesome. 

Have a nice week everyone! See you soon!
