Empty Chairs Memorial, Krakow

While I was exploring Krakow with a friend, we came across a square that had a number of chairs in it.  These chairs were permanent fixtures, but we didn’t know what they represented until my friend looked it up in her guide book.  Then, I did some of my own research.  As it turns out, …

Discovering Szczawnica

I hadn’t heard of Szczawica until I used BlaBla Car (a car sharing website) from Wroclaw back to Krakow. The driver and her partner came from there.  They showed me some pics and told me I should go, so I did. This has been the most difficult place for me to pronounce.  It’s something like Sh-ch-v-neat-sa, but …
