I can’t get enough of running in the forest when I visit our Polish Family outside Krakow. The forest is maintained in a completely natural state, and every time I’m there I see something different.
This time I found the beaver dams (ok I fell into a beaver dam), a cave and an abandoned house. The beavers chew and scratch the trees until they fall down, then they use the trees to build their dams.
And I also ran through a farm – I’m not sure if I was supposed to but nobody seemed to mind.
A trip to the V&A waterfront is not complete without a trip on the Cape Wheel. The ferris wheel was installed in 2010 as a temporary attraction for the 2010 football world cup. 19 years on and it’s still in use.
A trip takes about 40 minutes, and you have a fantastic view of the harbour, the city and the mountain. An excellent way to relax in the often busy V&A. More details are on their website
We were on the beach for a wedding celebration with some friends, and I caught that shot of the two fishermen as the sun set into the sea.
The Sculpture of Zieta is one one of the many small islands in the middle of Wroclaw. Created by the artist Zieta, It
references the island’s shape while reflecting the lush natural landscape formed by the Oder River, while surreptitiously alluding to the city’s architectural history.
It is a lovely sculpture to look at, and you walk through a lovely peaceful park to visit the sculpture.
