I am getting pretty excited about my upcoming trip back to Poland for Christmas and it is even more exciting given that my parents don't have a clue that I am coming! My sister and my nephew have been plotting together with me to plan this and we all can't wait to see my parents' faces when I turn up at their place on 4 December. I will let you know how this goes, some people have asked me if my parents have strong hearts and I think they do so hopefully there won't be any heart attacks (lol).
Well, my sister tells me that it has been snowing already and here is a picture taken by my nephew a couple days ago from the windows of their place. It will be a bit of a shock to my body to go from around +30C in the sunny Queensland to around -5C or less within a couple of days. I hope I can cope with that.
Below are some photos of my home city in summer. I come from Olsztyn, which is located in the north east of Poland, not far from the Russian border. The region is well known for its beautiful lakes and forests which surround the city.
