Hi Juka! After a short break but a long absence, I’m finally back to the blogosphere and found some time to enjoy your excellent blog…
You surely had a great time in Poland!
Many thanks for your comments on Blogtrotter, while I was off. It’s now still in Kos on the way to Crete! Hope you enjoy and wish you a great weekend and a nice week ahead!

What beautiful architecture here... those arches are so evocative of another age. Here in England, we have the wonderful old university buildings in London, of course, but also Oxford and Cambridge. Great pics. :-)
