Gdansk? Yepp, me and D's first international travelling together goes to Gdansk, Poland. After an evening of argumentation we finally settled on Gdansk. I wanted places like Barcelona, Paris, Rome, Lissabon. He wanted St. Petersburg, Krakow and other east European cities. I asked some colleagues if anyone had been to Gdansk and they had. And loved it apparently. Situated in the north of Poland, 5 km from the shoreline, they say it's really pretty.
We found a small hotel in the old parts of the city, located between two canals. We'll be checking out the local sites (like the Neptune fountain in the image) and trying the food. I hear sausages are the thing there.
