My 75th birthday present to Poland. Last day – Three generations visiting grandparents.

Below are photos of searching the villages. Walking the ground that my grandparents walked!











Did you know that in Poland it is good luck if you have a stork nesting by your home? This last picture has a pair with its young one is just across the road from my cousin’s home.

So now we say goodbye to Zaluczne Odrowaz and Pieniazkowice. I am so glad I had the opportunity to come and visit here.

From here we went back to Zakopane and then on to Krakow.

Below are some of the photos from our adventures at both of these places.

  2. What a wonderful opportunity in making a connection with your roots!
    And, appreciating the work and energy put in by Zenon in making this
    come true. To walk where your grandparents walked and lived is so
    special! It must have been a “warm and fuzzy” homecoming that will
    remain with you forever!
