Daytripping to Poland

A couple of weeks ago I got to journey into Poland for a daytrip to a city near the border called Szczecin, only about 2.5 hours from Berlin by train. I went with a small group of members from a nice group called Make Friends in Berlin, and I enjoyed the novelty of saying “I’m going to Poland for the day.” The weather was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the company was great. It was a nice relaxed day of sightseeing, photographing, eating, and drinking.

Onwards to the visuals!

Some bits of the architecture (and a musical friend).

An emo bird, and a sign.

Spring has arrived!

Every city has a place you can go to enjoy 360 degree views. We went to a nice little cafe (Cafe 22) in a skyscraper to enjoy ours.Szczecin-77Szczecin-78.jpgNo crossing!
