Cześć – it means ‘Hello’ in Polish!

And it is quite difficult to pronounce it correctly, so if you ever meet me in real life and manage to say it right drinks are on me :)

Things You didn’t Know is a series of interesting travel facts which started because I love to observe the world! No, not in a
creepy, stalking way! So relax, ok?

I travel to observe, to see and to understand other cultures, mentalities, people and religions. Maybe that is why I like to travel on my own. I want to immerse totally, to make my own mind and to dig deep into the country!

In this series, you can read about things and customs that amazed me, surprised me in some way or simply made me smile!

Interesting Travel Facts

I know what you are thinking! Interesting travel facts such as Indonesia being the biggest Muslim country in the world or Oman opening its borders to tourists in 1989. You can’t be more wrong!

My series is about things you can’t really ask Uncle Google about (I mean you can now because I have written about it). It is about my genuine observations and things that I found quirky or unusual. Patterns, behaviours that I observed and found them worth mentioning to other travellers.

Things that may help you to understand a country you are planning to visit in a near future. Or maybe change an opinion about a country you only know from media mentions. Or read about a country you know well from a totally different perspective, a perspective of a curious Polish Girl.

I know that reading about your own country from a perspective of a visitor may be a slightly weird experience but please understand I loved your countries, that is why I wrote about them. Please take it easy on me and do tell me if I’m mistaken about something specific.

So dig in, and let’s see how many of them You really didn’t Know!
