I was in Krakow for 5 days and had a wonderful time enjoying the sights, Christmas markets, food and drink but one cannot forget what happened just an hour's drive away. During the second world war the Nazis set up 3 main concentration camps in this part of Poland, known as Auschwitz 1, Auschwitz 11-Berkenau and Auschwitz 111- Monowitz
This is where hundreds of thousands of people, mainly Jews, disembarked from trains into the death camp at Berkenau. More people died at Auschwitz than at any other Nazi concentration camp. The camps are not a tourist attraction but a memorial to those who were murdered there in the hope that history will not repeat itself.
Welcome to my blog
This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!
