Warsaw.Poland.December 2013

Warsaw was the shortest stop on our trip to Poland, and it also meant that our trip was at the end.  We only had one day to explore Warsaw and we now wished we had more time to spend there.  Our flight to London also got cancelled, but they rebooked us on a similar flight the next morning – yay! one more night in Warsaw… except we stayed at the airport hotel and left early, early morning.  Oh well, there’s always next time 😉

The best part about Warsaw for me?  It snowed!!  For some reason, we always miss a significant snowfall, however, as we left Toruń it was already snowing and continued to snow into Warsaw.  It was so beautiful – nothing like that in Hawaii!

this was taken just as the snow was beginning to fall... it was also the last picture before we had to find somewhere to hide
