This was one gem that magically appeared on my roster (by some miracle) that I was definitely not swapping! Warsaw, Poland. Even thought people sent me some awesome offers (Geneva, Lisbon, Vienna…), I know that I won’t always be able to operate this flight as the aircraft type will change back, and then I would’ve missed out! (we can’t have that now, can we?!) I love European flights as it is, but I was especially pleased on this one as I’ve never been before, and I was going straight on my leave afterwards! It oesn’t get much better than that!
An almost full load with lots of vodkas being ordered and not very much English being spoken made for a very busy flight! The time passed quickly and before I knew it we were whisked out of the airport and onto the bus, for a short ride to the hotel, which was breathtaking. After a quick shower/ change/ Skype, most of the economy crew and a few of the business class met up and Matt, our Polish native, took us around the city. Our first stop, of course, was food. We down the main street, and it was lovely! Matt took us to a traditional restaurant, where we indulged in fried perogies (dumplings) filled with spinach and goat’s cheese, sheep’s cheese and also traditional cabbage and pork. They sound a bit gross, but trust me they were delicious!
I was bullied into having a beer which I barely touched, but luckily the others were thirsty! 😉 Afterwards we wandered around, ate ice cream, took pictures and enjoyed the sunny European afternoon. The next stop was the mall, which we had to catch a metro to. This was great fun as I managed to spot a Westie and spent the whole train ride patting him! Such gorgeous dogs 🙂 After a quick food shop, we retired back to the hotel to rest after a busy day that began at 2am! All in all, a lovely place to visit with a great crew, an amazing way to start my holidays, yay!
