We had the most amazing time in Europe, but particularly in Poland. I have to admit that I was not prepared for all the emotions and feelings that I experienced in Poland. I was so overwhelmed that I can’t even put it into words. It is easy to read a book about history or watch a film or google the internet to find information, but when you are standing where that history took place and it is actually family members lives explained, then it is very confronting. It also makes you realize that those historical events have given us the lives that we have today and we are grateful for that.
It was for me a very overwhelming experience and I really cannot find the words to accurately describe my time there. There were just so many emotions at the one time and still now, I would need a 1000 word essay to explain the mixture of thoughts and feelings. I really hope that I can come back one day soon.
