Anniversary by the sea

It was spontaneous trip - we haven’t planed it for long before we went. But we liked it! It was the 4th anniversary of our marriage - that’s why we picked August for this trip.
We started preparation a few days earlier - we made ceramic plate with heart shape and with the date we got married :) As always we went to Formy Kolory. We had a lot of fun and we made something unique! :)

It’s our little tradition to make something permanent for years.Each year we make something, what we leave somewhere, we plan to return in each one place someday :) It still should be there (if anyone won’t destroy it). 
It’s good idea to make something, cause we spend time together. And at the end we’re putting our DIY somewhere in the world :)

The adhesive has bonded for 24 hours, after this time we could uncover it (the newspaper and sticky tape).

That’s how it looks like:

Our Baltic sea trip was very active, but I feel rested. There is fresh air, not like in Warsaw.
We didn’t have perfect weather, we couldn’t take sun bath, there were rainy days, a lot of clouds and a little bit of sun. We made a lot of trips, we were going for a walk by the sea, we visited small pier and few little cities nearby.
We ate delicious fish, wafers with the chocolate topping and beer with the raspberry juice.

There were also a cats - a lot of cats. I couldn’t make a photo of each one, because not each one wanted to come closer. But some of them - like these - were asking for attention and petting them :)
And again the tabby cats were the most sociable!

I’m a crazy cat lady, so I had to bring some cat souvenirs. First one is also a anniversary gift from my husband - beautiful bracelet with the cat and heart.
The last one is the result of my absent mindedness - I had to buy chimney scarf, because I left mine (also with cats) at home. But there is never enough cat gadgets ;)

If you like it, you should watch charity auctions of ‘Kocia Łapka’. I brought 2 chimney scarves for charity sale :) They’ll probably appear in charity allegro soon.

Everything good ends quickly, so this trip also ended too quick.
This year we plan one more trip, but I’m going to write about it next time.

My cats didn’t like the fact, that we left home for few days. Especially, that this time my mum couldn’t stay with them. This time my friend came to them once for each one day, she stayed 2-3 hours and went home. After we returned they showed us, that they took offense, but they stopped when I opened a can with cat food ;)

Purka was walking on my back whole night, Amaya was slipping on my butt and Misio purred over somewhere between me and my husband.

The disadvantage of every trip is leaving cats at home. Separation with them is difficult for me. I can’t leave home for longer than week, cause I miss them too much.

Now when we returned I’m thinking only about Majas adaptation in nursery. Although I’m positive, but I’m still little bit nervous - because it’s new environment, my daughter will be there with new people - babysitters and kids - which she meets first time just 3 days before. Suddenly she won’t see us almost a whole day (between 7:30 am and 5 pm). Until now she had us all the time. Of course - we had some days without her, she sometimes stayed with her grandma. But she also knows her from the beginning, she feels safe with her.

But at the same time I feel relieved, because I’m going to have some time for myself, before I’ll return to work. Throughout September I’m going to catch up with everything and find permanent work.
I feel contradictory feelings, but I’m still trying to be positive and don’t worry too much.
And at the end some pictures from our Baltic Sea trip :)



It was very nice to return to Wroclaw after 3 years. I was able to see places, I couldn’t visit last time and return to places, I love. There are a few places, which changed a little bit, but the nice atmosphere - joy and smiling people is the same as when I was there for the first time. This city is so positive and full of life.

It was girly trip of 3 generations - my daughter, me and my mom :)

Last time, when I was here with my husband we didn’t go to The Raclawice Panorama, cause they renovated it. Now we did it! I’m very impressed - this painting is so realistic and each one detail is painted so neatly that you might think that it’s real fight scene, where someone pressed pause button. I really recommend to go there if you’re visiting Wroclaw :)

We also decided to go to the ZOO. And I have to admit, that it’s the best ZOO which I ever seen! Animals have huge space to live. There are not an awful lot of species, but I’m sure, that they all feel good there. They have some space in buildings - they can hide there when it’s too hot or too cold or just they don’t want to be watched by people. They can also hide in high grass, trees and bushes - that’s very positive. You go there and you see, that this ZOO is their house, and the most important there are animals, not visitors.
When we went there there was sunny nice day, a lot of animals spent the time outside, so we could see a lot of species. Lions were the best of all; the lion was soaking up the sun and the lioness came to him and nudged like a domestic cat ;) Well - lion is also a cat, but little bit bigger - he also needs love and tenderness ;)
I didn’t have enough time to film it, it was just a moment! But I have a lot of photos of other animals :)

I also like visiting the botanical garden of Wroclaw University a lot. It is a calm, nice and relaxing place. Actually - it’s one of those places I visit everytime I’m in Wroclaw. It’s maybe not the biggest botanical garden I ever seen, but in my opinion it’s the best organised and charming :)

Fans of high altitude will definitely like Sky Tower. It’s nothing more than 49th floors building with a lot of offices inside. The last floor is available for visitors. Height makes an impression, I saw beautiful Wroclaw panorama. If the weather is nice (we had cloudless sky) there is possible to see Karkonosze mountains - we saw the Sniezka summit :)

And for fans of trains/piko I can recommend ‘Kolejkowo’ exhibition - it’s Wroclaw model with a lot of details. The most touristic (and not only) places are made on a small scale. I don’t know the city as good as people living there, but when I was talking with them I learnt, that the organizers did it very well - they made even stores signboards, graffiti on the walls and the technical condition of some buildings.

Obligatory when you go to Wroclaw you have to walk around the old town and on Ostrow Tumski district. On the Tumski bridge we hang the padlock 3 years ago (it was our first anniversary of marriage). I was looking for it, but I didn’t find. Technical condition of all those padlocks was bad. Every padlock that matched the size of ours was very rusty and destroyed and I couldn’t find the one. (I hope it’s still somewhere there).

Everywhere I go I meet some cat - it was the same during this trip. I think that I attract them :) So meet my new tricolor friend, which was walking with us when we were in fountain park. I pet her for quite a while and I wanted to leave her, but she was following me. 
She went on to the road when I didn’t watch and I had to rescue her, because some driver didn’t even slow down when he saw her! And this pretty cat lady? Oh… she was making a toilet in the middle of the street… 
I’m really sad, because someone is letting her walk near big road (because I’m sure it’s domestic cat). She likes probably everyone, who wants to pet her. One day there won’t be any human who can rescue her from being run over.

Whereas about the family meetings - I have to admit, that I’m satisfied.
We visited 2 families - my grandma’s and my grandpa’s.

Both of them were very positive. This one from Wroclaw city I feel like I knew my whole life. I really enjoyed meeting them, next holidays they’ll come to Warsaw to visit us :) I’m sure that one day we’ll go to them to Wroclaw too.

I regret only one thing - I wasn’t able to make a contact with most of them from my generation. I met only one boy, the rest people are living somewhere else in Poland, the most of them nearby Poznan city, some of them in Jelenia Gora city. I fear that we won’t organize one meeting for all of them, they won’t come. Used to be some time ago, that people met their whole families every holidays - Christmas, Easter etc… Nowadays not many people cultivate this tradition. But maybe we could try, it’s a quite close family (which I didn’t know earlier)...

And for the end few pictures of Siwa - my aunts cat lady :)
