I only have a few days in Warsaw left to go before I head off to the UK. I’ve had many favorable impressions and experiences of this city and its surrounds. There is a lot to enjoy here and it is easy to do most anything as public transport is everywhere. But it will take some doing to sort it all out because it happens all in Polish (not surprising) so be prepared with a travel guide in your native tongue.
The overall energy of Warsaw is calm. Even these past two weeks in the city’s center, it is easy to feel and see that it is not a busy, bustling city like Vienna or Prague. There is a lot of space here and it doesn’t feel confining at all. I’m not much into bars and nightlife or fancy restaurants, so it pleases me to find a multitude of delicatessens here from which to buy food. I spend every day walking and looking for little jewels amongst the obvious. Many of the photos in the galleries are just that… little details of the obscure that have caught my attention and the lens.
The largest contribution to my experience of Warsaw is this yoga studio. I’ve had a few years in practice between Florida, San Francisco and Costa Rica as both a student and a teacher and I am very picky about where I go for asana classes. This place is right up there on my list of most-loved yoga studios. The space itself is designed beautifully, the classroom floor is slightly resilient and the teachers are very methodical in their teachings. Not that I can understand anything that they are saying, but I can easily feel the vibe of what they are communicating and I know that they are excellent in their presentations during class.
Next week, I will be traveling to the UK by train from Warsaw. This site is fantastic for working of the details of journeying by train almost anywhere in the world. Overnight sleeper to Cologne, then to Brussels and on into London to meet up with my new friend.
I have such a backlog of images and stories, but I am going to spend my time over the weekend getting more caught up as new images and new stories unfold frequently.
