Gdynia boat races.

Walking down Gdynia’s main pier we caught wind of a promotion where you go on a 45 minute boat ride and watch boat races, all this for only $3 a person. We’re in!

 

Turns out the where no races, it was an informational tour of the old dockyards, all in Polish.

We’ve adapted well to the gypsy lifestyle. We shower (in a real shower) every 5 days or so, at times I wash my hair in the sink (once in the McDonald’s handicap bathroom) and sponge bath the rest of my body. Baby wipes are also great to have around.  I often do dishes with cold water and pray that all the salmonella comes off.   We have eaten numerous types of raw meats and sausages without any poopy repercussions.

Every everything has gone rather smoothly. I love living in the van!

We’re having way too much fun!

The beaches of Gdansk have tons of little restaurants, clubs and amusement parks for kids.

We try and explore as much as we can. Short walks often turn into 6km treks.

The Poles sure do like their sweets. Here I am eating a Goffry, a waffle with cherries and whipped cream.

I haven’t found a non disgustingly sweet wine since France. This is our new wine.

Look what I did!

-Unscrew metal floor board thingys.
-Rip out old carpet.
-Scrape off all the calking and glue.
-Vacuum and wipe.
-Trace and cut out new linoleum.
-Double side tape floor.
-Lay new floor and trim to fit.
-Have a 3 minute timeout because the stupid kitchen is small and awkward and why and where do these damn wires go.
-Rescrew all 103 screws that go in the metal floor board thingys.
-Sweep floor and put everything back.
All that in the few hours. Spicegirls! I mean, Girl Power!
