  • I’m starting to see Mulled Wine (Gluehwein) everywhere here in Berlin now too. Always a good sign that Christmas is coming.

  • I like the Warsaw wildlife shots, haha! The squirrel is especially cute. By the way I believe that those birds are pigeons, not sparrows :P

    • They are pigeons, not sparrows hahah my mistake. They look like sparrows to me :-P. Warsaw has pretty interesting wildlife, huh? :)

  • Haha, sparrows :P
    Also Gluehwein makes me think of Christmas – I am determined to go back to Deutschland for Christmas again in the future!
    Warsaw looks beautiful! I’ve never been to Poland but it’s definitely on my list now- there are still so many countries for me even to see in Europe :)

    • I am thinking of spending Christmas in Berlin as well. I’m so tempted by Christmas markets and German mulled wine :) I want to explore so many European countries as well, but won’t manage to see much this time :-( We can go together one day :)

  • I really like that shot of the man in the green cape! I wonder what he’s contemplating… ;) Enjoy your time back in Europe!

    • He actually knew I was taking a photo of him, so that was his pose :). Thanks. I’m having a great time in Prague right now :)

  • Beautiful collection of pictures, Agness! I admit I haven’t seen many Warsaw posts or pictures so this was a treat. I love how the Old Town looks. Very cute squirrel indeed!

  • Great photos! I love the one of the squirrel. I’ve heard great things about Poland. I’m Polish, so I must visit some day!

    • Hey Christy,

      Thanks, Agness will be happy to hear you liked the photos. I also love the one with squirrel.

      How long you’ve been away from Poland? Maybe next tie you come around we can meet (that’s if we too get there again at the time).

      Enjoy your journeys,

  • Thanks Christy! It’s also my favorite shot ;) I was so excited at the moment of taking this photo – you have no idea how much!
