Gdansk, Poland

I visited Gdansk twice.  Once on a 20 hour lay-over, and the second time for 2 days.  I loved this city.  The prices on food are very cheap.  Especially compared to Iceland, which is where I was headed on the first layover.  The downtown area is historic.  There a lot of churches, statues, and fountains.  I had a great time walking about taking photos, having a beer, and just enjoying the city.  I stayed in a great room I found on Airbnb.  It was modern, minimalist, new and affordable.  The host Artur, picked me up from the airport.  That was a great added benifit.  He also had a beer waiting on me in the room.  Poland has some great beer, if you are into that sort of thing… The vodka is great as well.  It is a good way to not freeze to death while walking outside.. So I hear..  I came to Europe during the off-season to find winter weather.  Well.. I found it in droves!  -10 C so around 16 F.  I figured I would update the blog while I wait on my next flight to Belfast.  Stay on the look out for updates of my travels!
