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! Matt, the traveling anthropologist.
