Picking or 'hunting' forest mushrooms I haven't written a blog post in quite a few weeks. Life seems to have taken over somewhat, which means having time to sit down and write has been difficult. We had a few things going on at home and I started a new job which meant working lots of hours. However, my blog was featured on the Feedspot 'Top 20 Polish blogs' which is really cool. There are loads of great Polish blogs featured on there so go and check it out via the link here https://blog.feedspot.com/poland_blogs/. In addition to this, I seem to have had an influx of subscribers to the blog ove ..read more

Why did we move to Poland?

We lived in Poland for two years, but why did we move there? In 2016, me and my family decided we were going to move to Poland. We had a flat there and flights were regular and cheap to and from the UK. So, in 2017 we made the move and I became a 'Super commuter' - living in Poland but working in the UK. when we decided to move, we didn't know if it would work out so we just decided on going for one year to see how we liked it. We rented out our home in England and moved into our flat in Wroclaw, Poland. We decided the kids would go to a public school as initially we were thinking of putting t ..read more

My first YouTube video in Polish

Embarrassing! As I have mentioned before, I learned little bits of Polish here and there. I learned the basics from Kinga so that I could be polite and make basic conversation with her family. I attended an evening class in the UK for a few weeks but this was just very basic stuff. I never really started learning until we moved to Poland in 2017 and I made this video when we first moved to Wroclaw - I had some notes written down and Sophie helped me get my words together. The video was picked up by 'wykop.pl' so it became quite popular, people seemed interested in the English guy with awful P ..read more

Thank you Poland!

If you have read some of my previous posts, you will know I have deep feelings for Poland and this country holds a special place in my heart. In this article, I list ten things that Poland has brought into my life that I am truly thankful for. 1) People This is broad so I didn't want to list individuals or just family. Poland has introduced so many wonderful people into my life, some I met in the UK and others I met right here in Poland but they have all become an important part of my life. I have also met some great people, both British and Polish via my 'The super commuting dad' Facebook pa ..read more

What are Polish Women like?

10 reasons you know you are married to (or dating) a Polish Woman This week's post is a little different in that it is a link to a YouTube video I made about Polish Women. Click the link below to watch the film. I started dating Kinga in 2004 and we have been married since 2009. I think I know a thing or two about Polish women. Not just my wife but all members of the family and of course, friends too. I'm kind of generalising here but I think most of what is say is very true and of course this is my opinion - you will all have your own. Polish women are beautiful and elegant - see what else I ..read more

Poland is cold & boring

And Poland is a small town in Russia isn't it? Oh man, some of the wonderful things I have heard about Poland over the years have literally made me laugh out loud. I have to admit, as I have written in previous posts, that before I came to Poland, I knew little about it. A bit about the football team, a brief understanding of communism and I knew it was somewhere in the middle of Europe. To be honest, I probably also knew a handful of the countries that it borders - but definitely not all of them! Below is a list of common misconceptions about Poland, I have heard these either directly or indi ..read more

Travelling to Poland during a global pandemic

Our first day of a four week trip - Wroclaw, Poland. Finally!!! We arrived in Wrocław a few days ago. A long anticipated trip to our second home and we are here for four weeks. I am so excited to be here for many reasons but mainly because I have not stepped foot in this beautiful country since October 2019. Kinga and the children came in February, during the school holidays but I was working and unable to travel with them. We were supposed to be here in April for Easter, but due to COVID-19, our trip was cancelled. We have had every single trip and holiday cancelled since March and we were su ..read more

Ever been to a Polish wedding?

If not, and you are ever invited, make sure you go! Kinga and I were married in England in 2009. My Grandfather, who I was very close to, helped to pay for the wedding and this was the main reason we decided to get married in England, he was 91 years old at the time and would never have travelled to another country. So, I'm glad we were married in England and I'm pleased Gramp spent the day and evening with us. I have to say that as good as our wedding was, it was a bit embarrassing when the party ended at midnight. We had guests who had flown in from Poland - they must have been wondering wha ..read more

Our dog only speaks Polish

Speak English to Edek and you will get no response at all As most of you will know by now, we lived in Wrocław for two years. During that time Kinga, Sophie and Oliver really wanted to get a dog. I was 100% against it - I did not want a dog. I thought it was too much responsibility, we would have to make sure we were home during specific hours and generally I thought it would be like having another kid. I'm not the only member of this family though, so in the end I had to give in - when I say 'give in' what I actually mean is that I returned home from my weekly commute one Thursday night, to f ..read more

To B1, or not to B1, that is the question

Should I take a Polish language exam? I have only been learning Polish properly (with a teacher) since we moved to Poland in 2017. I was having a one hour lesson each Saturday and I had homework to do also. Although, Kinga and I have been together for a lot longer than that, I never really actively learned Polish before 2017. I had a few books, some CD's and I would learn the most basic phrases and words. I had been to an evening class for a few months but that was a very basic level and I didn't learn too much. My weekly one hour lessons in Poland really helped me to improve, especially as my ..read more
