Dec. 1, 2018: St. John's Archcathedral in Warsaw
On a cold, sunny day in modern Warsaw, it seems hard to believe that the 1945 Warsaw Uprising ever happened.  It seems hard to believe that an army drove a tank into this church and blew it up along with any Poles taking harbor inside.  It seems hard to bel...

December 2, 2018: St. Bridget's Church in Gdansk
This is a tree hugger's dream.  An altar made almost entirely of amber.  Not only is it warm, light, and beautiful in an otherwise dark church, but it comes from trees.  How wonderful is that? St. Bridget's church in Gdansk was so named when the remains of ...

Nov. 29, 2018: Flying Lufthansa
If the term "Economy Light" doesn't scare you, it should.   I failed to read the fine print when buying our tickets to Poland and learned the hard way what Economy Light means.  All in all, Lufthansa employees were very polite about enforcing rigid 8 kg wei...

Nov. 29, 2018: Leaving Seattle
Navigating SeaTac airport for a 2:15 p.m. international flight was almost pleasant, something I never say about my home airport which seems to thrive on pushing the lesser beings on the planet like myself into one mind boggling, super size line at a single ...
