I have mentioned a couple times that I have a very exciting vacation coming up. We are going to Poland!
Poland is where I was born and with the exception of my immediate family, the rest of my family members all live there. I moved to Canada when I was 6 years old and still remember a lot from before my big move. I speak, read, and write in Polish fluently.
I love going home to visit my family members and friends. My relationship with them means so much to me and I miss them like crazy on a daily basis. We try to Skype, text, and email was much as possible but that's obviously not the same.
The last time we went to Poland was two years ago and it was the first time I took Mike with me. I had a great time introducing him to everyone and showing him around. I have so many wonderful memories from when I lived there and when I used to visit for entire summers.
This time we will have even more time to explore the country and spend time with my family. We stay with my grandparents and I love that I get to spend a lot of time with them. My favourite things to do in Poland is to just do the normal, everyday things with them. Cook, play cards, and spend lots of time chatting.
As you may guess, I will be making family time a priority for the next little while. The blog will take a little bit of a backseat for a bit but I have some fun posts planned.
