Getaway Guide: Venice and Murano, Italy

Ahhh… Venice, Italy. What a dream it was to be able to visit! Here’s my getaway guide to visiting Venice and Murano in 2 days! Yes, you CAN see Venice in only a few days!

Venice (like Greece) was another city on my list of “must visit destinations while living in Poland.” Since our time living in Europe is quickly coming to an end (NOOO!!!!) we had to fit this trip in ASAP! So, like many of our other trips, we purchased a ticket via RyanAir for under $100 and off we went. However, unlike our other trips, we now had baby H in tow! Let me tell you though, traveling with a baby was SO much easier than I thought it would be. Anyways, back to Venice.

I wasn’t sure what to expect of Venice as I have heard some people hate it and some love it. I, personally, really really really liked Venice and it does top my list of my favorite cities I have visited. Here’s why. Continue reading “Getaway Guide: Venice and Murano, Italy”

Ring Bearer Bowl

One of my favorite things – and something that makes the cut while I am going through my house and purging everything that comes in my path – is from my wedding. This was my ring bearer bowl with the description, “Lately I have realized the best is yet to come.”
Oh how true that is!? I love it now more than I did 5 years ago!

Another Door Knocker

I know, I know. I post a lot of photos of lion door knockers. I just can’t help it 🙂 BUT, this one is my favorite and I need to find one like it. It’s my favorite mostly because of its size (it’s maybe about 5 inches tall)? Isn’t it the cutest?!

Here is a photo for scale.

This door knocker can be found at Hotel Tumski in Wroclaw, Poland. I just love it!!

Wroclaw Soccer…er, Football

When we moved to Wroclaw, one of the things we really wanted to do was see a Wroclaw Slask football err. soccer game. (Ahh the dreaded ‘soccer vz. football’ wording; we Americans have made these terms so confusing!) Anyways, back in September we had the chance to attend a game and it really was awesome! Here’s a bit about visiting the stadium. What a great way to capitalize on the ‘experiences over material items’ craze!
Now, it may not look like many people were here but this cheering section was Loud with a capital L.  When I say it was loud, I am not kidding we could hear Continue reading “Wroclaw Soccer…er, Football”

Intricate Doors in Wroclaw

One of my favorite things to photograph are doors. I LOVE doors, especially doors in Europe. These are, quite possibly, some of the best doors I have ever seen. And they happen to be right here in Wroclaw. Take a look:
Sigh. Aren’t they beautiful?
Now, when I tell you these are doors to a church, doesn’t that seem fitting? I haven’t been inside the church yet, but these doors make me want to find out more about Kościół Opatrzności Bożej.
