Backpacking in Poland: Top 19 Sights in Bydgoszcz

Backpacking in Poland: Top 19 Sights in Bydgoszcz, Bydgoszcz, Poland (B)

I’m back, yes it is a return blog post for the first time in 4 weeks, my longest ever break from writing, I’ll probably cover more on this bad time someday, for now here I am in Bydgoszcz, POLAND. I’m here for the Autumnal air and tranquil canals. As my selfish backpacking dream ended in August 2016 in the city of Kaliningrad, Russia, it was the end of an era in my life. I didn’t expect to be living in Gdańsk in Poland when the dream died away but this was the reality that I was now faced with. I had a flat. I had a home. I was learning Polish. I had appeared in 2 local newspapers (Tczew and Starogard) and I had some excellent media contacts and new writing work lined up. There was no more booking dorm beds or emailing hotels asking for a last minute bed for a travel writer. I had a permanent bed now and life would go on so easily. Everything would be so nice. Happiness was back. Wrong, on so many levels. This is where it all went wrong…

I couldn’t handle the stationary world and it accelerated my depression at a time when my trust in other people went downhill. I didn’t feel good. Life didn’t feel right. So after 6 weeks of not moving anywhere, I finally decided to head to Malbork, Elblag and Stuthof in Poland to escape the every day charms of my latest hat trick – Gdańsk, Sopot and Gdynia (Trojmiasto – three cities beside each other). This weekend away saw me reunited with my new best friend in life Kasia, and Julia. Polish girls have hugely influenced the last 6 months of my life and you will find out soon enough the reasons why. I need to tell it sometime. I had made a lot of Polish friends in life, but I trusted them. I didn’t realise they could lie to and make a fool out of me – especially on details such as where they lived, how many hours they worked and reasons not to meet for a coffee. I lost myself only because of other people’s lies. The truth doesn’t hurt or ruin me – only lies does. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
