My flight was at 1:55pm. And I don’t know
why but I felt so proud getting myself to the airport. It just seems like such
an adult thing to do. But of course me
being an idiot I missed out on duty free because I spent to long sitting in a
café having possibly the last soy chai for the next couple of weeks in Poland.
But it is ok I can just do duty free on the way back to London. And yes I did
end up running for a plane; guess I can tick that off my bucket list.
I was sitting in between a Polish man who
somewhat represented an English bulldog and a very tall black man. I wondered
what he was going to be doing in Poland. He had some papers which he was
reading through whilst I tried to read over his shoulder. What can I say, I got
bored of reading 50 shades, It is just sex and whinging. But I need to finish
it because I can’t not finish a book it freaks me out for some reason.
I started trying to teach myself Polish out
an English to Polish phrase book I bought. I have no idea why I was so tired
but I was doing that awkward falling asleep thing where your head keeps
becoming very heavy and starts gravitating towards the shoulders of the
individuals you are seated next to. Not only was this making me lose my
concentration for learning the odd language that loves using consonants where
they do not belong, but it was making me look a right fool in front of these
When I finally saw my mum I broke out into
tears because as mentioned before I am a wimp. Felt like home being in her arms
Caught a cab to my uncle’s place where we
met with him and my Great Great Aunt Veera. We all went around the corner to
have my first pierogi in Poland. Then we headed out to Warsaw old town.
Poland is such a beautiful country, so full
of history. It’s so weird to think some of these buildings have been here
hundreds of years before Australia even became a country!
At the moment the whole of Warsaw is well
mental over the Euro Cup. This may be because Warsaw and Ukraine are hosting
this year which as much as I don’t follow sport, it is pretty amazing to be in
the middle of everything.
Annoyingly I kept tripping over the
cobblestones with my awkward ankles and me being an idiot decided that night
would be perfect to wear my new shoes in….nope. Amazingly I survived this walk
completely injury free.
Back at home mum and I stayed up til the
early hours of the morning in our shared fold out lounge bed talking about
everything. It was exactly what I needed.
