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!

Stained glass windows in Krakow

Walking around the old town in Krakow, Poland you cannot fail to be impressed by the stained glass in places of worship, restaurants, hotels and shop windows.








I liked the modern designs. This one is in St Francis's Basilica.



These colourful windows are in the Temple Synagogue



This window was in the door of the stained glass workshop. Unfortunately it was closed when I tried to visit but I did meet one of the owners who took me inside to view some of their current projects which were fantastic. This would be top of my list of places to visit if I am fortunate to return to Krakow.

  7. They are indeed beautiful ! I got polish chocolate and a beautiful Christmas cushion cover from my Polish cleaning lady. She is such a sweet person. Her daughter lives in Ireland so she goes there for Christmas. The chocolate WAS excellent !

  8. The glass is so beautiful, different from other places I've been. You don't see much modern stained glass design in the U.S.
