My best wishes to you all!

This year every christians churches are celebrating Easter at the same time, so I could say my wishes over the split for East and West ( where Poland is located in the middle of it, and I think Ukraine even more… ). And if you are not celebrating Easter you may take my wishes as my good will , or not… It’s up to you.

I have to admit, that the weather this year is miserable and really unpleasant. In April we had been having so lot of gorgeous, warm and sunny days, so I was completely sure that beautiful weather is been here for longer and simply it will roll into a summer. And a week  ago it turned to almost wintery weather! Chilly rain, almost freezy, very strong wind, and is windy non- stop, day and night, and days are murky, so I cannot take a pictures of these marvellous blooming trees all around. And also I got a cold, because my sneakers have been wet, while rain started to fall during my stroll with my lovely dog.

The crocuses here in Warsaw had faded right now and the boars have not eaten it. Our boars like more a tulips and every flowers with onions inside the ground.

Sitting in the kitchen: March

March is going to the end and spring has been here for a few days, as well. However, in an early springtime the  weather conditions are very bothering, sometimes even miserable, because we experience a huge daily differences of temperatures and often is very windy. That chilly wind in March! I find it quite romantic ( good for reading a book under a blanket ), but from the other side I have to keep my wintercoat in the corridor, is very usual for evening stroll with my dog. But some flowers are already in bloom, a trees are covered with lovely green leaves ( looks so fresh) ,and birds are about to start their nesting season. My dog found a bone outside and has eaten it. She was also into the pond, she did it a few times, although she’s not in the habit of swimming there. She only uses to  stand and drink this water with great pleasure. I respect that wild custom, nevertheless I have purchased for her the filter, which is making water free from heavy metals, detergents etc. so I think is better for her to drink at home… Anyhow I must admit in this pond water seems to be quite clear.

My dog is one of the reasons I cannot travel. I have been not travelling lately due to many reasons, also my mother is retired and I want to be in touch with her everyday. Thus, I rather read your travel blogs than I travel by myself. And while you cannot travel, you always can dream about it… Planning new trips! Being in Poland, I often dream of a voyage in February or in March. As I mentioned in the post last month, these seasons here are dull, awful, and very windy! Every year I have been thinking : ” Right now it is been a perfect time for my vacation!”. And I cannot go. India! Southern Portugal! Sunshine, warmth and amazing, exotic flavours and colours!

I think Portugal is much more safe than India, especially for a budget trip. To be frank, I cannot imagine myself in India on a budget trip. This is very dangerous for women, and I am sure that the only one way is to get a luxury trip there. A luxury trip… I mean to say, I will again buy a couple of books about India, along with some Bolly movies. End of the story – especially if you earn your money in Poland. Well, maybe I am grumpy at the moment, but if I have not enough money for rent a room in a five-stars hotel in Goa ( for a month, because  flying is expensive), I  not travel at all. ( It looks like I never will ).

So, Southern Portugal is closer, and it seems is much easier to reach this destination. I am not sure I am a massive lover of the cousine in Portugal, but despite of it, I think it’s absolutely worthwhile. Southern Portugal is the most warm place in Europe, during all winter. Only there you can wear sandals and summer dresses all a winter season long… I know about lovely rural houses in Portugal you can rent for Christmas, when the orange trees are in fruit in Portugal, or you could spend some time there in winter, with both swimming pool and central heating.

From the other side, today is 20 C here in Warsaw, so it must be the turn of the tide, don’t you…
