Polish Trip

Geoff.


You mentioned that +3.5T motorhomes are rare in Poland.
Just back from Poland No motorways taken and we did not see another motorhome on the road in the 2 weeks we were there.
Entered via Zittau down to Nowy Sacz over towards Gorlice where we hit snow, then just east of Jaroslaw and back via leszno and back into Germany at Bad Muskau.
Good trip


Ian

I didn't see you waving Jan when we went to Krakow. I looked as I though we might see Geoff.

Ray.

The FSA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our lifeīs savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. http://raynipper.com

Iíve become reluctant in waving

And many of those waved back

On our bucket list to see the wooden churches in south eastern Poland, they were worth it!



no particular route except non motorway as we are +3.5T


all of our Poland was off grid some really fantastic spots


Our biggest problems occured when we tried to match a stop to a restaurant it never seemed to work, for one reason or another, note to self, don't bother.



Having said that we had some fabulous meals at really good prices.


Snow halted looking at some of the minor churches but our thirst was quenched


We used quite minor roads at various times to varying degrees of success, we travelled for about 2 hours on a road which said no more than 15T it was beaten to death and then more. Others were brand new.


Last time we went to the Baltic Coast and met the beast from the East, we had popped







in to Jan/Hank to try and fix our fridge which was Kaput, in the end it was so cold it was not problem, until later on in Poland when we got +30 in Lodz
