Red brick road

Posted on Updated on

My boyfriend is snoring, so instead of trying to sleep I embrace the opportunity to write. My mind was occupied anyway with memories and random thoughts, so why not write it down instead?

Last weekend me and my boyfriend went to Poland. It was a great trip, where we had four whole days to do whatever we wanted. We managed to do some sightseeing, try an escape room for the first time, and take a day-trip to Berlin. The city we travelled to in Poland is called Szczecin, just a 2,5 hour bus drive to Germany`s capital city. Since it was cold, we did not see everything that was there, but we took the “red walk”, seeing some of the main attractions.

The so called “red walk” connects nearly all the attractions within the centre. This is by far the best way to discover the centre on foot, as all attractions are marked by a number (there are about 40) on the pavement, so you won’t miss one. At each of them there is a sign explaining some details about the sights.

Like Dorothy in the wizard of oz, we were safely taken to our targets by following the red lines. My shoes were sadly not red and pretty (and not very warm), but it was still a nice walk.

Szczecin is a pretty city, regardless of its unpronounceable name.

The creativity (and humor) of the hard-working Polish people also manifested itself on the bus to Berlin. There was a little menu describing what we could buy if we got hungry or thirsty, and on it there was a small addition: You could get a friendly neighbor for free!

Need a friendly neighbor? 

Every city has something special, but the people you travel with makes the exploration of it even more memorable and exciting . I am glad I came to this part of Poland that I knew nothing about, happy to have seen the world through Polish eyes. Although I`ve read that the country has its problems, like a high unemployment rate, Poland still manages to show itself from its best side. Maybe a hard life makes people focus on what is good in life? We all know that people who look at the bright side and build on their strength when life gets difficult, can achieve great things. Painting the road with red lines might not seem like something groundbreaking, but it is clever.

I could have written a lot more about the trip, but will leave it for now. I can`t wait to go and explore more of the world. For now, I will just remember the weekend and soak up creativity whenever I encounter it.

    It is always a pleasureable thing to go and learn about new places and people. I pray you are blessed with many more opportunities to explore the world around you. There is a man whose quote comes to mind….”Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness” If we could all see the world through the eyes of others maybe we can end all the hate.

      That’s a very good quote! Do you travel a lot ?

        That quote was from Mark Twain. I used to travel quite a bit in my younger years. Now I let my imagination take to far away places in my writings.

        That is a very good alternative to traveling. We should always take time to reflect and share what our mind holds!

        That polldaddy thing shows up as a whole bunch of garbled text. Maybe my browser has something turned off?

        Yes, it is beneficial to reflect on things. It helps us grow.
