I was blessed with an opportunity to travel to Central Europe (Czech Republic, Poland, & Hungary) last fall with my husband and mother-in-law, and we had a wonderful time...I chose to keep a travel journal along the way to capture our adventures, and this is the result. I found much of my inspiration for this style of travel journal from Mary Ann Moss' blog, I highly recommend it. To see what my handmade journal looked like BEFORE my trip, click here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgt0oR... Thanks again for watching!
A flip-through of my first couple of travel journals ❤ leave a comment below with suggestions or comments my dudes
Polish and German leaders have commemorated the 75th anniversary of the German invasion that began World War II. They drew clear parallels to the present conflict in Ukraine, warning that European peace was under threat. Read more: www.dw.de/english
Markus Reichert meets with Polish Jews in Krakow and discovers a new sense of Jewish identity. Just an hour's drive from Auschwitz, more and more young Polish Jews are keen to discover their roots. Find out more: www.dw.de/dw/article/0,,16193010,00.html
Some 2000 soldiers have taken part in a NATO drill in north-western Poland. They’re part of a new force designed to boost security in eastern Europe. Relations between Moscow and the West are at their lowest point since the Cold War.
More and more Chechens are fleeing to Poland, but the country is ill-equipped to handle all the asylum-seekers. Poland can accommodate about 2,000 people in its refugee centers, but estimates say there are more than 10,000 Chechens in the country. About that same number have continued onwards to other EU countries. Some of these refugees say Poland never processed them as asylum seekers -- even though, under EU regulations, the first EU country of entry is required to do so.

A promotional calendar published by the city of Warsaw has opened old wounds and revived painful memories of Poland's Jewish history.The calendar features a collection of graphic art posters - including one that many say is anti-Semitic. The image, originally created in 1925 for a national newspaper in Poland, features a uniformed man throwing flames at fleeing rats - many of which are wearing yarmulkes. After protests by Jewish organizations in Warsaw, the city administration agreed to cancel a second printing. But Warsaw's mayor has called the calendar a beautiful showcase of Poland's graphic art. The first edition is already in circulation.
This year's long hard winter in Poland has cost well over 200 lives. Most of the victims were either homeless or drunk and froze to death on the streets.Warsaw alone is said to have over 3000 homeless people. The police search them out, handing out clothing and food and telling them where they can find emergency shelter. But some are reluctant to go to the shelters because they have a strict ban on alcohol. Winter came to Poland early this year, with the first snow falling at the end of November. At times, nighttime temperatures dropped as low as minus 30 degrees Celsius.
In Poland drivers with raised blood alcohol levels can expect drastic punishments. That also applies to bicyclists who've had too much to drink. Car drivers and bicyclists who are caught twice with blood alcohol levels of more than 0.2 grams/liter can go to jail. Thousands of drunk drivers are already behind bars. The reason for the strict measures is the country's high rate of alcohol-related traffic accidents. Poland has one of EU countries with the highest number of deaths on the road.

So I finally made up my mind and I'm leaving Colorado in two months and heading for Poland. This wasn't an impulse decision, I've been thinking about this for the past few years. But coming here made me realise that I could survive on my own. I have the skills now required to fend for myself, get a job, and create a life in another country. The only shitty part about leaving America, is that I won't be able to return for several years because I am on the DACA program (you can read about it). But I will be banned to re-enter the us for a total of 10 years if I leave. And my family will be staying here, or most of my family. I don't know if this is the "right thing to do", but I have to take chances and live out my life to my core value. And one of my values in not to lose my Polish heri...
An old debate is stirred again as Silesians question their national heritage. Rightwing conservatives in Poland feel national unity is threatened, minorities feel discriminated against.The dispute was unleashed by the former prime minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski. The nationalist politician said those who chose to describe themselves as 'Silesian' in the recent census were selecting a 'disguised option for Germany'. While most Silesians would never consider breaking away from Poland, they say they don't want to be treated as second-class citizens.
Another update on my international smash book - travel journal.

Poland wants to build its first nuclear power plant near the German border. Protest is coming not only from politicians in Germany, but also from people living near the sites under consideration for constructing the plant. The citizens of Mielno on the coast of the Baltic Sea fear such a plant could spell the end of tourism there, and so they have voted against their government's plans in a referendum.
This week I share a few of the diffirences I've come across after living in Poland for awhile. Enjoy it, Share it.

Poland has a medical emergency. Doctors are leaving for better paid jobs in other EU countries. Many Poles have been left to rely on the emergency services. Dominika was just two-and-a-half years old. She suddenly came down with a fever and her parents called the emergency services in the small town of Skierniewice. But no doctor had time. By the time a doctor saw Dominika, it was too late. She didn't survive. Her fate has sent shockwaves through Poland, because it illustrates a dramatic situation. The country does not have enough doctors, nurses or other caregivers. For more go to http://www.dw.de/program/european-journal/s-3065-9798
Poland's parliament has banned the production of kosher and halal meat - and the country's Jewish community says the decision is outrageous. Polish meat producers are also disappointed. Poland is the EU's largest exporter of kosher and halal meat - but the country's constitutional court and parliament decided that the method of slaughter is illegal. Jews and Muslims in Poland consider the ban an affront to their religion, and they're trying to find a legal loophole that will allow meat production to continue. Poland's chief rabbi has threatened to resign unless the ban is lifted. The move by parliament caught many abattoir owners by surprise. They believed that the law would never make it through the legislature. For more go to http://www.dw.de/program/european-journal/s-3065-9798
The Polish village of Osinow Dolny is close to the German border. It attracts horders of shoppers from across the border,keen to snap up bargains: Everything here is cheaper than in Germany.But what really makes it unusual is the extraordinary number of hairdressers: Most of the villages 200 residents work in its 30 hairdressing salons. The customers are elderly ladies from Germany,who are delighted that at 4 euros a go,a visit to the hairdresser's costs about as much as it did when they were young.
