Polish Sausage

Today, I tried some actually Polish Sausage. My pops has been bugging me to try it. He said,”If you are in Poland, you need to try the Polish Sausage.” I did and it did not taste any different than the Sausage in the states. Though it is not really different you should, if ever in Krakow, really try to experience one of the many outdoor grills set up for many of the festivals here in Krakow. The one that I ate at was called the Bayer Grill.

Kopiec Kosciuski Wax Museum

If you ever go to Kopiec Kosciuszki (Burial Mound), never opt in to take the Wax museum tour for 8 Zloty as it is not worth it. There are only about 12 wax statues and the tour is over. Save you money and go to the Cafe FM Panorama and get some coffee or ice cream. The mound is truly the highlight.

The only impressive wax statue was that of Pope John Paul II shown below. So if you want to pay 8 zloty to see this then go ahead.

Kopiec Kosciuszki

Today I took a taxi to Kopiec Kosciuszki which is a famous burial mound here in Krakow. I climbed to the top of the mound to get a great 360 degree view of Krakow. The weather was great and the skys were clear, which made it even better. Bad part is that I was not able to get a taxi to take me back to the hotel and had to take a bus and hoof it a ways to where I was able to get a taxi.

BTW, I saw othes stand ont he rock and followed suit. So if it was not appropriate, I apologize.

Mr. Gelato Closed

It is my bad fortune that I must notify those that have been traveling to Krakow, Poland with me that Mr. Gelato has closed. They in my opinion make the best Ice Cream I have had while here in Krakow. I must now set out to find a good replacement, which I think I might have found.

Arrived In Krakow, Poland

I have arrived in Krakow, Poland and was greeted for the first time from the Holiday Inn with handmae chocolates after my very long flight. Yes, the orange and green are chocolates. It pays to be a Priority Club Member.

Poland Bound

On my way out to Krakow, Poland today. I will keep everyone posted on how the flights go.

Have a great weekend.

No Carry-On Luggage at all.

I just received an email from a co-worker stating that LOT Airlines is not allowing any carry on luggage at all. So to be on the safe side, I decided to check Alitalia Airlines to see what restrictions they have so that I can pack accordingly. I called Alitalia Airlines and they do not permit any carry on luggage at all to the US. This is of course contradictory to the travel heading out of the US to other countries.

I have no problems with all the security steps taken, but they need to be more consistent globally so that travelers can be better prepared.

I normally travel with the basic, especially since my luggage has been lost numerous times.

Below is a listing of all the items I usually carry with me to and from the US and hopefully I will soon be able to return to bringing them soon.

Pair of Pants
Neck Pillow
Eye Mask
Ear Plugs
Souvenirs (on the return Flight)
