Don’t hate me because I’m tan!

Sailboats on the Mediterranean Sea, Costa Blanca, Spain

Can you guess where this picture was taken?  No, it is not Gdynia 😉  This is a view from my balcony on the Costa Blanca, Spain.  That’s what I left there this morning, and this is what I arrived to in Gdynia this afternoon:

Snowing on the frozen Baltic Sea, Gdynia

So, can you really blame me for packing it up right after Christmas and hightailing it to sunny Spain for 2 months?  Churros and hot chocolate, paellas and sangria and – what I really miss in Gdynia in wintertime – the sunshine.  Every morning, everyday, all the time!

La vida es buena!


And the winner is…

While searching for a rental apartment in the TriCities, we considered all our options.  Gdansk is cosmopolitan, full of history and culture.  Sopot (also known as my birthplace ;-)) is a touristy,  laid-back  beach resort.  But Gdynia combines it all – beach, port, shopping and cool jazz clubs.


The choice is clear – we are moving to Gdynia!
