somewhere in the wilds :)
If you donâ€™t have anything better to do - visit Polish mountains in the autumn. :o) The colours and views are just picturesque. The atmosphere idyllic and restful.
But while in the mountains - remember! Donâ€™t stand in a highlanderâ€™s way. In case if you consider yourself daring â€“ donâ€™t be surprised if you end up with a fork stabbed in your back! :o)) Yeah, of course, Iâ€™m exaggerating! Still, highlanders in Poland are as passionate and traditional as any other highlanders in Europe :o) You gotta love them tho! So the mountains. Or maybe I love them as I feel at home whenever I come here?
The Beskids and Tatras are my favorites. Nice for hiking, for long or short strolls. :o) And of course for â€˜oscypekâ€™ (local smoked cheese) and â€˜krupnikâ€™ (honey vodka). Speaking of witch, another good piece of advice â€“ donâ€™t party with highlanders! Even if you think your head can take A LOT ;o)
The â€˜mountainyâ€™ south of Poland is worth visiting to experience a long-established and traditional lifestyle synchronized with sunrises and sunsets. There is time and place for everything. Believe it or not, here milk comes from a cow ;o))
