And this wraps up my 2013 European Holiday. So grateful for a wonderful time with the family and an amazing backdrop of Poland, Prague and Germany to boot. I miss everyone so much already, but always looking forward to our next chance to be together.

Happy 2014 everyone!

Eva’s World- The weather was surprisingly mild this winter in Poland and we got quite a few sunny days. I went upstairs to check out the awesome rooftop views of the city with Eva. How many dogs get to say they have a rooftop view of a castle from their home? I’d say she’s got it pretty good here.

What do Polish people eat? If I am guilty of blogging way too much food, it is not because I want you to know how much holiday weight I’m putting on. I am genuinely curious about what different cultures like to eat. What’s their comfort food? What do they eat for snacks? What’s considered a nice meal?

We had dinner at this cute local restaurant, where they happen to serve some very delicious soup and traditional Polish meals. The cauliflower soup and chicken roulade in mushroom sauce was delightful. I was not as crazy about the trio of Polish salads. You have to really like pickled stuff for that. My sister’s favorite dish, golwabki, is not so pretty to photograph but is still pretty tasty. The cabbage rolls are filled with meat and rice and came with a nice light sauce.

I have determined Polish food is mostly very simple- I’ve seen a lot of pickled foods (pickled herring salad is also popular, again, not my fave) and cabbage and mushrooms in almost everything. I don’t think I’ve had anything I really disliked. Polish food passes for me!

Since my sissy lives in such a fun, happening part of the city, we decided to check out a dance club right across the street from their apartment. We thought it would be fun to experience this with the locals, so she invited a couple of her Polish girlfriends (Gosia and Anya-above). We had a blast and of course, ended the night with some pizza. It doesn’t matter what country you are in, pizza is always the right answer at the end of a fun night.
