Villa Ada in Oliwa, Gdansk has been "home" for the last two months but now we sadly have to collect our belongings, such as they are, and get ready to leave on the weekend. We only have a couple more days to say our farewells and then we head south through Poland for around 500 km onto Wroclaw.
We have had a great time here. It was our first real "test" to see how we could cope truly on our own (let's face it, Germany was nothing more than an extended holiday and through the generosity of family and friends it was the best holiday ever) and I have to say, I think we've done quite well.
No major disasters (yet), no rows or arguments (yet) and we have both had such a good time we really cannot work out why we haven't done this years ago. I know this style of living is not suited to everyone and I fully understand that there may be greater things in life for the majority but I am not here to convince you to try our way or give up what is right for you.
We simply want anyone who has taken the time and effort to visit our Blog to gain a small insight into how perhaps an alternative lifestyle is possible and with it; what our experiences are. So far, all is good but we are not naive enough to think this is how it will always be. No, we'll take the lows along with the highs and continue our way across this globe to see things we have only dreamed about.
So, au revoir Oliwa. I'm not sure when we will meet again but I suspect we will. I am certain of one thing though- you will be missed.
