The first reunion we had after exchange took place in Warsaw, Poland. I went to Poland a few times before but never to this capital. Sadly, the world war teared most of the old town apart, but the country was able to rebuild a big part of it so it regained its flair. I went there in May 2017.
This is a quick jump in timeline, because before this trip I did a longer backpacking trip through Southeast Asia but I wanted some contrast in between. That is why I will add a few trips through Europe in between before “going back” to Asia.
We were a few people that met on exchange and gladly we had two locals showing us around. It is always the best to explore with a local and have a friend at a location. Sure, that is not always possible, but if you know someone don’t be shy and ask them to show you around. Couchsurfing, even if you prefer your own room in a hotel or want to stay in a hostel also offers the possibility to just meet local people.
I wasn’t expecting anything but meeting friends but I was able to explore a beautiful city and I do recommend you to give it a try. Poland is possible with a low budget as well which is always a plus. So off you go.
