24 Hours In Warszawa, Poland
Warsaw is the capitol of Poland, so if you are planning on going to Poland anytime soon you will probably land in Warsaw, and you should sight see for at least a day! In my opinion you will probably get the most out of your visit if you go to the Old Town. Warsaw's Old Town is filled with beautiful architecture, amazing ice cream shops, and amazing picture spots. Most of the Old Town in Warsaw was rebuilt after World War II because of the damage, however it is still a UNESCO site because it was rebuilt as a replica of what had previously existed.
15 Reasons to Love Helsinki
One of my secrets to seeing as many places as possible is to try and get a longer layover when you book your flight. This way you can knock out more than one place at the cost of one flight. When we were looking for our flight to Poland this summer (ps - you have to check out our blog posts about WYD, Zakopane and Warsawa for all the deets!) I found a flight that had a 24hr layover in Helsinki, Finland both ways. So I thought - why not?! I've never been to any of the Nordic countries so I didn't know what to expect. And I definitely didn't think I would fall in love with this adorable city. There's so much to love about this city and country so I figured I could share my top 15 reasons.
Travel Guide // Zakopane, Poland
We always love going back to Poland because all of our family is there! The reason why I got the chance to go to Poland was because this year Poland hosted World Youth Day. Just like the title says it is a couple days where youth from all over the world come together to worship God and meet the Pope. However, I will have more on that in the next post. We got a group of your from our parish to go and we stayed in Poland for about two weeks. Our Mom is from the mountain region in Poland so that is why we spent our first week in Zakopane. Zakopane is a city located in the Tatra Mountains. It's great for skiing in the winter but in the summer it's a perfect place to do some hiking.
Croatia - Dubrovnik
What is called "The Pearl of the Adriatic" is truly a remarkable sight to see. Dubrovnik is one of the most breathtaking cities in the world. Known for its amazing seafood and beautiful, ancient architecture Dubrovnik is a sight to see. For us seeing this immense, yet welcoming city was amazing.
