King’s Palace

It’s rainy. And it looks like it’ll rain all day. So a visit inside the King’s Palace is in order. The whole area of Old Town has been rebuilt.

Arriving in Warsaw

Warsaw. So here’s the deal: I have a 12-year-old girl and a Mom with me who has a bum leg at the moment.

Goodbye Koczala

Last evening in Koczala. I won’t be back for a while.

I Am Canadian

Back in Koczala for a little bit more. Took another walk to the cafe – 45 there, 45 back – by way of the lake.


Chojnice. It’s the nearest ‘big’ town. It’s not really that big, not when you’re used to living in Toronto, but it is the biggest town around.

Walking Your Past

Lovely quiet walks. We had a fun little walk with my Mom around Przechlewo where she told my Girl about some family history.

Showed the various buildings and who worked and lived where. I didn’t know some of it either, so it was nice to hear these things that people don’t really talk about: their past.


A visit to Canpol, a ride in an amusement park, a walk down memory lane in another village (where my aunt lives), and a swim in another lake.

The School

This school, where my Grandmother worked for most of her life, and where my Mom and Uncle studied.

Cafes and Ant farms

At the lake resort, called Bobo, is the only cafe around. It’s about a 45-minute walk from my Babcia’s.

Szymbark, Upside Down House, and Kaszubian Museum

Bit of a big day here!
