Blooming hot here in southern Poland!

It's too hot for me here. I'm melting in the 30 degrees plus temps!

We're currently at Góra Świętej Anny, just SE of Opole. It's a massive pilgrimage shrine, but since we're not Catholics, and not even religious, it's probably all a bit lost on us. Still, lots of interesting history in this area, with Silesian uprisings and forced depopulation of areas at various turns in the past.

We were planning on going to Wrocław tomorrow to see how it has changed since we were last there in the early 90s, but I'm not sure we fancy a big city in this heat. We might be better heading north as quickly as we can, though the thought of doing that in this heat is also a bit off-putting. The plan was to get to some more lakes in Pomerania, but this hot weather looks set to stay for a while.

Still, we had pierogi today, dumplings stuffed with cream cheese, and Rob got some tripe soup, while I had zurek, a sour rye soup. We've also had bigos (stew with saurkraut), so we're getting what we like to try food-wise. Maybe not to everyone's taste, but just right for us!

A month has already passed by in a flash, and it kind of feels like we'll need to start heading back soonish. So much for seeing the Baltics again. We might make the Baltic coast of Poland, especially if there are sea breezes.

That's the beauty of the MH - you can change plans whenever. Glad you're enjoying the food Lesley n hope you get a breath of fresh air soon.

In Belfast we're getting some very continental-style downpours - Saturday had a month's worth of rain in just a few hours.

Hosepipe ban starts on the 5th August up here in the North

Could do with a months worth of rain here Jean , bet even that won’t reverse the ban though

Yes

But we need a northern amount of rain

Hosepipe ban will exist

And we pay a fortune for water

We don’t have metred readings

We just pay

You'll be no better off coming North Leslie, we have 33 today, I cancelled a hospital appointment because it's too darned hot to travel, wait about and leave Motley in the van.
Hans suggests you go to the mountains.
Mind you if you were here you could sit in the garage which is 27.6. Out here it's 29.9 at the moment 8.15 pm.

I'm Jan
We learn something new every day.

A bit chilly yesterday evening though, looks like it may be repeated today

Ah yes, the Basilica of St Anne. I remember walking around that place and was surprised that I virtually had the place to myself.

I rather liked the Basilica, but found The Grotto a little odd. I was genuinely shocked to find that even in a place of worship (on a lower terrace) they were selling Tourist Tat.

I liked Poland, a lot, and will return.

Is that a threat or a promise?


Not this week though 'cos 'Cook' flew off to Turkey for a week this morning.

It's OK Geoff, I seldom take long journeys during children's holidays. It's far too busy.

Mrs HS has stuffed me for September by taking a River Cruise with her sister. To me, being cooped up in a boat with other tourists would be hell.

Whilst she's away I might nip over to Shropshire as there's a church near Bishops Moat that I want to visit.

Next time you are down in Southern Soft Jessieland, please Pm me and I'll drive over to you both....... Or you can park on our drive.
