    Poland’s Mixed Emotions

    It’s difficult to put into words a summary of our weekend in Krakow.  One reason is because I was criticised in a previous post on Belfast for focusing too much on the negatives of a place and not enough on the positives.  Another reason would be because of the sheer horror and evil that seeps into your pores in a place like Auschwitz.

    Amsterdam – City of Surprises

    What an eye-opener to say the very least!  Our weekend trip to Amsterdam was full of surprises! It started off in a bit of a rush.  Trying to get to King’s Cross station was a challenge in itself!  When we did get there, another couple was rushing madly to the finish line as well – low and behold, it was Toby and Charlotte who were off to Bruges for the weekend.  Had a quick chat to them then headed to our different carriages on the train.
