Krakow, You’re So Adorable I Want to Squeeze Your Cheeks! by j

Standard
After a few days in Warsaw we made our way to Krakow, the previous capital of Poland (like a million years ago).  We traveled to Poland by train.  The train station in Warsaw is a scary looking building meant to intimidate and frighten.  So imagine my surprise of getting off the train in Krakow to be met by old buildings with balconies, trees and greenery and a sense of “Old World” Europe that was much more authentic than Warsaw’s attempts.

Krakow is not a big city, but what it lacks in actual size in makes up for in cuteness.  Krakow is like the younger, cooler, hipper sister of Warsaw who acts all superior when asked where their government buildings are or where their edifices are that are younger than 150 years old.

Krakow was amazing, and we weren’t the only ones who thought so.  It was covered with much more English speaking folks from the world than Warsaw.  The weather was even different.  Where Warsaw had some pretty epic pathetic fallacy.  Krakow was sunny, bright, colourful and hot as hell (love it).

So here are a collection of the Krakow pics, enjoy!

About weywardsisters

The Three Weyward Sisters first appeared in Shakespeare’s “Macbeth”. It turns out we have more in common with these “weird” sisters than we thought. In the Shakespeare play the sisters represent darkness, chaos and conflict. We’ll leave it up to you to decide which of us represents each. They also usually show up to mark impending doom. Well, we certainly hope that our presence on this little corner of the Interwebs doesn’t mean impending doom for anyone. However, we find our commonalities with the witches in other ways. To be weyward means to be willful, disobedient and to turn away from what is “right or proper”. Those who know us would whole heartedly agree – we are three weyward sisters. We are three headstrong, stubborn (some more than others), obstinate and willful sisters. Read at your own risk.
