On our third day in Gdansk we rised early and hopped on a train to Sopot! The sun was shining and it could not be a better day for a trip to the ocean side. It appeared as the entire of Poland thought the same thing as us and let’s just say; we we’re not alone in Sopot this day haha.
We started our trip to Sopot by visiting “The Crooked House” or Krzywy Domek which is its actual name. We sat down at the cafe and drank some coffee and tea. Fun story: I don’t drink coffee, I hate it actually. But the lady in the cafe must’ve missunderstood me when I ordered a chai TEA latte. I didn’t get anything with chai in it nor tea. It was some sort of coffee. I was too embarrassed to go back and complain so instead I poured 5 packages of sugar in it and then I was shaking for the rest of the day… 😂
After my horrible coffee experience we walked to the Sopot Pier! And as you can see, everyone else did too. But it didn’t bother us that much. We still decided to walk out.
At the end of the pier there’s a pole. And apparently you’re supposed to touch it for good luck according to the locals. So of course I did. Kind of gross though, but I was fine, I brought hand sanitizer haha. My mum and her boyfriend decided not only to touch it but also to kiss infront of it. I think they muliplied their luck by a thousand percent, at least.
After hanging out with the entire polish population at the pier we found a sushi restaurant off the main street and it was so nice! The BEST vegetarian sushi I’ve ever had. We spent quite a while in this restaurant before it was time to head back to our hotel in Gdansk. This day, April 14th, is my mothers birthday so we had an entire evening planned in Gdansk. My mum got a spa treatment at the hotel as a birthday gift from Peter, her boyfriend. So meanwhile my mum was having the time of her life getting “the best massage ever” (quote from my mum) me and Peter went to the spa and hung out in the sauna. Then the four of us got ready for dinner and we found a really fancy restaurant called Piwna 47.
We didn’t make a reservation but luckily they had one table left! So we sat down and had the best, and most expensive, dinner of our lives.
I had some amazing noodles and tofu and drank some amazing white wine. Everything about this place was amazing. Forgot to take a picture of the dessert, but believe me, it was amazing. Nothing could top this evening so after eating and drinking we decided to walk trough the Old Town back to our hotel where we ended the night. This has to be the best day in Poland out of all of our days. Beautiful weather and celebrating my mothers birthday in a beautiful part of the world. I can wait to go back to Poland and discover more of this country!
