By golly I had plans for Warsaw. Exploring the city, checking out the museums, trying the local food – perhaps attend a session at pierogi school.
Unfortunately no matter how well you plan, there are things outside of your control that can go wrong and for my Warsaw trip, I was ill, so very ill.
Thankfully (proving the universe isn’t a complete bugger) I had been put into the one of the nicest hotel rooms I have ever stayed in (which was a lovely surprise) at the InterContinental.
I was on the 39th floor and as you may have spotted from my Silent Sunday post, the views were incredible, even with a bit of snow.
My main outing was to the Warsaw Uprising Museum, which was one of the best museums I have ever been to. The way that it had been curated, was really very impressive.
Covering four floors, there was a full-sized plane suspended from the ceiling and two films to watch.
You can read all about the Uprising on Wikipedia, but it made a lot of sense about how the City looks now; it was completely destroyed and had to be totally re-built.
I have a project in the pipeline that will take me back to Warsaw in the next couple of months, which I’m really pleased about. I can’t wait to explore more of this City.
