Hobo Advice

If something sounds or looks interesting in Poland, do it. The odds are, you'll meet a lot of locals, as opposed to tourists, taking part in activities. And while you do, strike up a conversation with someone. More than anywhere else I've traveled, people in Poland seemed to have a great knowledge of languages. So basically,  if you know English, German, Russian (and of course Polish), you should have no trouble getting around. Also, get out to the country side. there are plenty of places to go and things to do outside the cities. And when you do this, make sure to travel by Polski Bus!
