Luckily I was business class so just booked into a hotel overnight near the airport and flew out the following morning.
I think I've told you before how much I like Poland, I miss going there very much.
The Frost is also amazing during the winter, when the temp stays below zero for a few days the frost builds up in layers day after day until the trees etc look like they have ben iced. Bit dangerous when the power lines start to fall across the road because of it though.

By the way, years ago before my 4x4 days I had a Volvo 360GLT for a while that was great fun on snow and even wet roads. It was realy well balanced as the heavy gearbox is attached to the back axle and was so easy to control once you'd stepped the back out. Not that I ever did it on purpose of course!

Did you stay in the Grand Hotel?

Hi.

Yes the grand was a home from home.

Used to stay there for a few days every couple of months and never did get used to the odd chairs in the breakfast room!

When I first started going the 'Party guardian' was still stationed on each floor by the lifts, but this practice soon stopped and the desk was removed.

Great place once you get used to it, especialy Jurasic park, otherwise known as the hotel bar, and so named because of the age of the resident 'Professional' ladies.

The Irish bar across the street was also popular.

I presume you've been there yourself.

The Ibis on the other side of town is a modern characterless Dive.

You never give up do you - nasty snide little remarks all the time - it's getting VERY tiring along with your pathetic signature line.

Take comfort in the fact that Alan does not even appear to own a boat, or at least not one he's prepared to admit to.
And that being an ex-pat he's hiding behind a computer to wind up people a long way away. Its also a very old joke now.

Guys, In respect for Richard can you take your discussions elsewhere and not contaminate this thread as these have nothing to do with his rib

That has definitely come across JW and we Solenteers are looking forward to seeing a great new Parker RIB at close quarters.

Great photos BTW Nautibuoy. Hope you had a little dropeen of vodka to help you survive the cold.

Sorry Andre

Wouldn't want to ruin the best free advertising you've ever had.
