Gdansk

sunny 23 °C

As we’ve all been hearing, travel through Canadian airports is painful, but ours worked out fine despite hiccups with my passport (finally picked it up on Friday afternoon for travel Sunday- phew that was close) and delays in both Ottawa (1hr) and Montreal (2 hrs). Our 5-hour layover in Frankfurt only ends up being 2 hours, which we happily spent in a nice lounge with lovely food and wine. We arrived in Gdańsk on time and easily navigated the purchase of SIM cards and an Uber to our apartment (Maya’s Flats).

The one-bedroom apartment is nice and clean with a kitchen and decent living areas including a very nice balcony and a good sized tv, on which Steve is currently playing an Xbox game :)

Here are some pics from our walks in Gdańsk. A very pretty city.

There’s a festival on, so lots of little market stalls and chickens.

And this stall where we bought traditional fried bread(I think, Ukrainian).

We enjoyed a nice lunch of polish stew and dumplings, accompanied by very good beer - dark for me and red for Steve. Both this brand:

The Amber museum was interesting, as was the monument to the fallen from the shipyards uprising in 1970.

Price is Right fans, we enjoyed seeing this collection of grandfather clocks (that must be why they aren’t prizes on TPIR any more - they’re all here!)

Looking forward to more exploration of the city and its history tomorrow.
