I don’t think these takeaways are going to be what you expected, but I 100% think they are worth sharing. And my hope is that you would be challenged to learn something from them.

Krakow Poland is a hidden gem. And I think people are starting to figure out that Poland as a country has A LOT to offer the world of tourism. We stayed in Krakow for one month, Nov 29 to Dec 29 and it did not disappoint. We stayed a bit out from the center, only […]
