Completely out of chronology but wanted to get a shot of dopamine by doing up this quick post, before delving into some prep for this afternoon’s 2x presentations!!!!! So this about Gdańsk, a city in Poland (at the very tip) that we decided to pay a visit to this weekend because we’ve been trapping ourselves in Warsaw while fellow friends have been spending exchange weekends in other parts of Europe. Super blessed to be reaping the full benefits of a “cheap exchange base”: pretty accoms in Gdańsk for only S$13.65/pax and train to & fro for slightly more than S$20 in total!
Here’s Gdańsk :~)
(One of the icons – a legit pirate ship!!!)
Fontana di Nettuno (Neptune’s Fountain!) / Didn’t even know this was an attraction till we stumbled upon it and saw it everywhere on posters and souvenirs in the area
The view from our AirB&B @3+pm!!!! the sun sets way too early in winter………
& this was the standalone building that our AirB&B apartment was located!!! it’s from the 17th century I don’t even know how…………..????
The train station was like straight out of a Harry Potter movie hehe
We visited the WWII museum in the evening and it was rlly rlly eye-opening. I’ve always had very minimal interest in history and the works but this made me realise why people can get lost in it and find so much meaning in studying it!!! The world has come a long way since Hitler’s mad ideology and we are truly blessed to be living in this generation.
Have been trying to cleanse my body with more homecooked meals and more gymming after the intense eating over the past 3/4 of exchange, but we completely let go during this 48hr getaway!!!!!! HO HO HO so happi
Dope (& cheap) cheese mushroom McToast for the train ride there!!! NEED THIS IN SG
Ribs craving was REAL these past few days so yay for Billy’s Restaurant’s BBQ ribs and a very accommodating Royal Pek hehe
Day 1 dinner @ Sempre Restaurant! First pizzas since Italy that paled in comparison but were still gr8. thin crust are :”)
Brunch at Schopenhauer!! Knew they were famous for bagels but had a sweet tooth that morning so I got the “sweet pancakes” and it was an ultimate disappointment cos they put the sour yoghurt and sour blueberries all over the insides (!?!???!) #firstworldproblems
Satisfied our pasta cravings at Restauracja Sapore that we stumbled upon and this was a very interesting plate of salmon broccoli linguine that left my tummy very happy
// Will remember Gdańsk for the extreme cold and the consistent quaintness it boasts! :~)
// Random note: Met a super friendly and chatty Polish lady in the train cabin and it had a pretty intriguing chat with her about the censorship issues going on with the WWII museum that we visited the day before.
// Back 2 work!!!!!!!!!
