I    first    visited    Poland    during    the period    2000    -    2003,    visiting    the northern   city   of   Gdańsk   on   several occasions.   I   became   friends   with the   local   people   with   whom   I   did business       and       enjoyed       their company,     and     of     the     general public   who   I   found   to   be   friendly and   helpful.   I   didn’t   get   to   travel further    afield    in    Poland    at    that time,     but     was     aware     that     the country   had   a   wealth   of   history   to explore   and   some   beautiful   cities and   countryside   to   see.   I   promised myself    that    I    would    return    at    a later   date   to   catch   up   on   what   I had missed. And   so,   I   revisited   Poland   in   the spring    of    2018,    and    visited    as many    historical    sites    and    great cities   of   the   country   that   I   could over   a   period   of   4   weeks.   Below are      links      to      some      of      the information that I have amassed.
