Poland - 10 years later...

15th May, 2019
With heights as my biggest fear and travel sickness being my worst 'condition' I haven't been too keen on travelling back to my country as much as I should or wanted to. Over 20 hours on a couch with travel sickness pills not working the slightest bit or high up in the sky on a plane panicking... I rather pass and just sit my ass in England for the rest of my life. Motherhood has made me stronger, braver and ready to take risks and break my routine as well as face all fears. And there I was on the plane heading back to motherland to see family I haven't had the chance to in many years...
   

   
From arriving at the airport for the first time in fact, to the entire flight and landing into the country I was born and raised in was a very exciting and emotional experience for me. I can't even put my thoughts an emotions into words. Our little girl aged 2, was the bravest ever. She has been woken up at 3am dragged out of her cosy cot to be quickly dressed and put in a taxi... The first thing that came out her mouth when my partner carried her downstairs for me to get her ready was 'Go go gooo...' with the cutest little voice you could ever imagine - she was ready and excited for the trip and it seemed like she really understood well what was going on. She truly made the whole journey even more special and joyful. She has been so good and well behaved throughout the whole process from leaving our house to landing in Poland. She was fascinated and enjoyed her first ever flight just like me - surprisingly. At the take off I cried I don't know whether it's because I was scared, touched, excited... So many emotions kicking in at once... The flight lasted around 2 hours and then we landed greeted so warmly by my family.
   
 
   
Got in the car and drove off to our family holiday house in the middle of the forest. Can you imagine being away for a week surrounded by nature and wild life, beautiful tall trees, hogs, deers and hares hopping about - although hard to spot in a day time. No sound or sight of people or traffic, instead tweeting birds all day long and fresh air to fill your lungs with. Heaven on Earth. We spent our days very actively starting our mornings with healthy smoothies made from berries and other fruit picked by my nan to long 2-3 hour walks in the forest along with other family members. We were living a dream and truly did not even want to head back to England. We are planning our next holiday back there again very soon, this time for a little longer. With flights not being a part of my biggest fear any more I am free to travel more and finally explore the world. Thank you Universe for this opportunity and for my amazing family...
