The serial gainer & loser! If there’s one thing I consider myself an ‘expert in’ it’s losing and gaining weight! Getting fitter then getting fatter and being a Yoyo dieter/exerciser. Seriously, I’m good at it! I’ve lost a lot of weight, I’ve gained a lot of weight. I’ve exercised hard, I’ve not exercised at all.

Poland – more than just Polish Vodka! Drinking Wine in Poland Mention Poland to anyone, and the first drink they mention is Vodka. But on visiting Poland you will find out there’s so much more on offer including locally brewed beer, cider, wine and so much more!
