30th April 2015 – Warsaw, Poland
So, what if there is no ocean around it?
Warsaw still serves you the beach, albeit faked.
There was soft sand, and the rhythm of the water.
Only thing: Not enough warmth, for which I ached.
I made up for all the laziness yesterday, by having a full-fledged day today.
What started from 9 in the morning, working on my blog at Starbucks, stretched into an evening playing laser tag with some couch surfers at the W5 arena at Wavelska. Funny, because there was just 3 of us and a giant, big-ass laser tag field for just 25 Zloty. Money well-spent!
Just when I was heading home after the laser tag, my host Beata called me, and said “come to the beach”. Come to the what!!?? Warsaw is landlocked, and there is no sea nearby. Where the hell did the beach come from.
Well, I didn’t notice it 2 days ago, when I crossed the Vistula river, but the Vistula riverbanks actually had a beach! Or for that matter, a few beach banks. Well, even a nudist beach. Yeah, they are not really used during the winter, but hey, summer is almost here. So, I walked towards the beach, crossing the Vistula river yet again. And clicking the national stadium on the way.
The football stadium with a retractable roof, which somehow resembled a crown on the map of Warsaw.
