Have you ever been to Poland? Have you ever been to northeastern Poland?
Why not?! 🙂
Having ‘Travel’ in the menu I couldn’t not start with the place I was born in.
Let me also convince you that’s the place worth visiting in your life.
Suwałki is a town in northeastern Poland where around 70,000 people live.
Once a year, you can participate in:
No, not all the people there listen to Blues, not only.
Suwałki has a very strong and patriotic rap scene:
Have you heard about the movie “Katyń” which was nominated for Oscar? It was directed by Andrzej Wajda who was born in Suwałki, who actually won the Academy Award in 2000.
This beautiful town is located in Suwalszczyzna, I know it’s a difficult word, in English you can just say Suwałki Region.
In Suwałki Region you can find some breathtaking parks:
You can find there the deepest lake in Poland:
It’s one of my favourite spots:
John Paul II?
He was there, it was one of his favorite places:
You’ve heard about Vikings, but do you know about Yotvingians?
If you’d like to visit this beautiful place on the planet and you have no one there, I’d recommend you Cisowe Sioło as a very nice place to stay during your visit.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask a girl from Suwałki! 🙂
I’ll turn around and answer ;).
So when you’re going there?
I’ll begin to look at this later. It seems awesome!
Great Maureen :), thanks for coming! 🙂
I have a lot of Polish friends and I look forward to visiting your home country someday soon. Maybe in 2017.
That’s great, you definitely should! ☺ https://youtube.com/watch?v=Qbu_FRg8vuU 😊
I’m glad you like it! ☺
I’m so glad you did start with YOUR place. it is lovely.
Thank you so much! ☺
I’m glad you like it! ☺
Thank you for sharing Suwalki with us! It seems like there is so much green. 🙂
It is lovely to meet you. I am very glad you are following my blog. Your presence is a gift.
Thank you for your kind words! ☺ Yes, this area of Poland is almost the greenest in the whole country ☺. My pleasure 😊.
Looks like a beautiful place! I hope you aren’t too homesick for it.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and for following!
Thank you too! ☺ I’m just a little, tiny bit homesick 😊. Thank you!
Glad to read this great post. I am a follower of your blog. Thank you for reading many of mine. -Jennie-
Thank you for following as well! ☺
This place looks beautiful. I definitely hope to visit one day.
That’s great! ☺
Thank you for visiting and following my blog. My grandparents were from Warsaw Poland. My other half is Hungarian. Both countries are on my bucket list.
Great! So you have a plan! 😊 Good luck! ☺
You’re welcome and thank you! ☺ You know, everything is possible! 😊
I’m happy to hear it! ☺ Thank you! ☺
Thank you and that’s interesting, thanks for telling ☺.
So nice to meet you. Glad you stopped by my site so I could find you here. 🙂 Paulette
Nice to meet you as well, it was my pleasure and hope to see you around more often! 😊
My mother’s family line goes back to Poland and the Baltic states. 🙂
Oh, that’s great! ☺
Breathtaking! I had no idea Poland was so beautiful. Although I adore visiting new places it seems that when I have the money I don’t have the time – and vice versa – so trips in the States are the bulk of my experience to date. I have been to 50 States, however. We moved a great deal when I was a kid, which almost always included a car trip – then I was on tour for several years of my pre-ADD dx acting life. Fun years.

Wow, that’s an interesting life you have! ☺
Mostly when I was younger. Since becoming an advocate for mental health awareness (Executive Functioning in particular), my traveling has been limited to conferences for the most part – and journeys around the web. I’m pretty much tethered to my computer anymore, so I really love to read the posts of people like you who have traveled the world.
Oh, I understand ☺, but I hope you’ll have time and money at the same time to go somewhere new! 😊
If I won some sort of lottery, I’d take a year and travel the world.
That’s our (my boyfriend’s and my) plan! 😊 😊 😊 Well, as I said before, everything is possible! 😊
How nice that you have a partner who shares your dreams. I hope you are right that *everything* is possible – I’d really love that year off ! lol 🙂 xx, mgh
That’s what we do together most of our time, hahaha 😊😊😊. Yes, let’s hope that I’m right! ☺
Dreams shared by two have twice the chance of coming true. xx, mgh
I really love it what you said! 😊

It looks like a lovely place, thanks for sharing where you come from. I spent a summer in Kołobrzeg two years ago. Is this near where you grew up?
Thank you! ☺ Oh, Kołobrzeg is pretty far from where I was born, but it’s still Poland 😊, did you like it there? 🙂
Oh yes, it was a beautiful place and the people were nice. It was great to see your photos, really reminds me of our stay. ^_^
That’s great! ☺ I’m happy you enjoyed your stay in Poland! 😊
I have been close to your place, in Elk. Suwalki is full of lakes, beautiful landscape.
Thank you, very attractive
Thank you ! ☺
Thank you 🙂
Eventually, for sure.
I haven’t been there, but definitely would love to go someday. 🙂 Thank you for visiting and following my blog.
Great post and photos!
Spent 44 days travelling through Poland in the winter last year and loved every moment of it – would love to return 🙂 Some posts, let me know if I’ve done your country justice! https://imageearthtravel.com/category/europe/poland/
Oh, that’s awesome! ☺
Hi! It was so nice to get to know Poland for the first time. Loved your whole blog tbh. So much optimism! It is a pleasure to meet you 🙂
Thank you so much! ☺ See you around! ☺
A beautiful place! Thanks for sharing!!!:)
My pleasure! ☺
Very interesting article and nice photos!

Yes, it is and thank you!
What a place for an origin story…
Thank you so much for reading and following my blog! I appreciate it!
Thank you as well! ☺
Hi Ula. I loved seeing these impressions from Poland! <3 I, myself, am from Denmark, but my partner ('boyfriend') is originally from Poland, and some of my best holidays have been spent in Poland ~ mostly in Krakow, and Nowy Targ, near Zakopane. I always long to go back. Thanks for following me, and I am looking forward to enjoying your posts.
Oh that’s great! ☺ I hope you’ll get a chance to visit Poland again very soon! ☺
Thanks. 😊 I hope so, too.
Thank you for this post! My mom was Born next to Lötzen, between the beautyful lakes, so she told me of the wonderful nature in the north-east of poland. She had to leave as a child, because her family was german, but her home is in her heart!
Oh, that’s nice ☺, maybe one day you’ll visit this place!
Now I have to go 🙂
Thank you for the follow! Will definitely have to visit Suwałki next time I go to Poland ^_^
Suwalki looks to be a nice place.
Looks like a beautiful place…Cisowa Gora would be one of my favorite spots, too! GORGEOUS!!
Great! I highly recommend! ☺🌸
Here you live beautifully!
I have to admit I know very little about Poland. i once owned a gray Polish Arab gelding. He was really special.
Enjoyed reading this post. I didn’t know there was so much beautiful nature in Poland!
Oh yes, there is! ☺ + south-mountains and north-sea ☺.
Wow! Such a beautiful part of Poland. I traveled to several parts of the country about 15 years ago, and it was a wonderful experience. Especially Wieliczka Salt Mine– amazing!
I lived in Poland since I was born for 27 years and I’ve never been to Wieliczka 🙈, but I will, for sure! ☺
Piękne miejsce ❤ Mam rodzinę w tym rejonie i wyjazd na wakacje w te rejony w celu wypoczynkowym to super sprawa! I te piękne widoki, jeziora, łąki, szosy….. Dawno już nie byłam…
Wcale nie dziwię się takim wyjazdom ☺👌🌹
I’ve been to Poland twice, but in the southern part. My daughter-in-law is from Nowy Targ near Zakopane so that is where she and my son live. The countrysides are beautiful and I love the hand made wooden, lace and embroidered items as well as the cheese. The old buildings and castles are spectacular and so interesting. Thanks for checking out my blog and following me. I hope you find some helpful posts and even Polish pictures 😉
That’s great!!! ☺ Your son speaks Polish?
Yes, he does, but not as well as he’d like. It’s been very difficult to learn for him. But he teaches conversational English to Polish folks which also helps him learn to speak Polish better! And his wife is very fluent and an English teacher. I love that my 3 yr old granddaughter speaks fluent Polish and English. She’s adorable and speaks very well. 😉
Oh, that’s great! ☺ I’m trying to teach some Polish my boyfriend ☺
Czesc Ula. Nice blog-spot and I like this one about Suwalki a lot. Greetings 🙂
Czesc Anna ☺, are you Polish? ☺🌼
Yes, I am from Wroclaw 🙂
Oh, czesc Ania! ☺ Nie bylam do konca pewna ☺
such a beautiful place! i wanna visit there one day
I hope you will, it’s very beautiful there! ☺🌸
Would love to visit Poland some day. Thanks for checking out my blog.
That’s a great idea! ☺ Thank you for stopping by! 🌻
I want to meet some Yotvingians! (:
wow… keren 😀
