Matt learns how to ride a horse.

 

First, the introductions. Horses love to meet new people, very sociable animals, not unlike my Matthew.

This lovely male was Matt’s ride. His Hungarian name translates to Desert Storm.

You must clean your horse before mounting him. My husband, the clean freak, is an obvious natural at this task.

With the help of my cousin, Matt leaps into position.

Within seconds he is at ease with his beast.

This is how a horse looks when he rolls his eyes. Matt was trying to add him to Facebook, he rejected.

Mr Ploszanski conquered the first level of horseback riding, onto level two.

What a spectacular day!

Doing some research. Krosno, Poland

While visiting the city we had a look at some real estate. 15 minutes out of a large city, this little house has been partially renovated (roof repairs, new wood burning fireplace, new insulation, electrical updates, new chimney, etc.), the interior was left bare, just the way we want it. The house sits on a large piece of land across the street from a lovely church, near a pretty ravine with no backyard neighbors.

No joke, it can all be yours for only $19,500! Remember that labour is dirt cheap as are building supplies.  Property taxes are almost non existent in Poland, $150 a year or so.  However, we’re looking for something a bit nicer than this, a house made from brick with at least a loft or a second story.  Just doing some research.

Haven’t even made the decision whether we want to live in the mountains or near the sea.

 Have a look.

Krosno,Poland.

You can find anything and everything from lawnmowers to g-strings at this wonderful flea market, it spans at least 2 km2. Hours of operation are from 7 am to 2 pm sharp, 6 days a week.

We arrived at 2:15pm.
