Tunic - Gmarket, Pants – Zara, Shoes – ALDO

Our family has once again displaced ourselves into another holiday – by car this time, to the fabulous youth city of the south – Kraków (Cracow). Five hours of semi-car-sickness and 3 hours of blind knitting (knitting in complete darkness), we entered the city at 1am, still bright and bustling with nightlife. We have no itinerary for tomorrow or Sunday, and since August 15th* is a national holiday I doubt anything will stay open – but the general idea is to bumm around Old Town and overdose on tourist ice cream then come back to the hotel to watch more grainy CNN.

Actually, I can’t wait to see the capital of culture, not that I haven’t been here… what, 6 times in the past, but I don’t think I was ever old enough to appreciate the beauty of the city. Well then, I shall report back soon with visuals.

*August 15th is a national holiday in Poland and numerous other countries commemorating the Assumption of the Virgin Mary – which to this day I still do not understand as nowhere in the bible does it claim that Mary was lifted up into heaven. Here’s a personal message to Christians of all denominations: It’s best to base your faith on the bible and the bible only, question teachings that are not supported by the Book.

  8. I’m glad yo went to Cracow. That’s my hometown and I love it dearly. But I have to live in Warsaw, which I consider kind of exile:). Cracow is a wonderful city, you’ll enjoy your trip.

    BTW, I’m an evangelical Christian, too, and I totally agree with your statement.

  9. Cracow is a beautiful city, but I don’t like crowds like this! I recommend you Wroclaw, it’s also an old city with lot of gorgeous tenement houses, small bridges, parks, charming pubs. It’s called “a little Venice” and it’s worth to seen it. Have a good time in Cracow!

  13. You seem to be a very skilled packer. I suck at packing, generally looks like an atomic bomb has exploded in a small plastic square. Hummmm

  15. I hope you like Cracow:)

    Btw. I don’t like polish national holidays like today when all shops are closed. Poland is very catholic country and everybody must adapt it. It is sad… ( some people in Poland even protest against Madonna’s concert in Warsaw today) ;)

    have a nice day,
    Alice:)

  19. The Assumption of Virgin Mary??? Interesting… I agree with you on wholeheartedly believing in the scripture!

    I’m excited to see your photos of Krakow… (I had to Google map that to get a sense of where you were going hehe).

    and speaking of holidays… today is Liberation Day in Korea! :) We would probably be speaking in Japanese if it was not for this day.

    You made me want to knit again, but all I really can knit are half-finished scarfs.

  22. Such methodical packing! I get car sick too. Glad you got to your destination safely. I’ve stumbled onto your blog and am so glad I did. Love the layout and your clear gorgeous pictures. Go the Canon 400D!! But the lens you’re using is amazing too. You’ve been linked. Hope you don’t mind!

    I love the layout, but just a thought: the links on the left and the “credits” of the clothing on the right are really tiny– the font looks blurred together. Maybe it’s just on my page, but it’s hard to read!
