My Second Visit to Poland – Forefathers Traces Tour with James. Day 3.

Only two hours sleep (jet lag)…

At 10:30 we (James and Zenon) met at the Oki Doki hostel. It was 2.5 years since we first met (however during this period we were in touch via e-mails, PolishOrigins Forum, etc.). We headed for Żbików.

Żbików is the town where James’ great grandparents were married and his grandfather was baptized. We visited the church and cemetery. After driving around the old sections of Żbików we headed for Pruszków. Pruszków is a town where Zenon and his family lives now and where James’ great grandparents lived. We drove around visiting different sites, old and new.

We had a traditional Polish meal (bigos, schabowy and potatoes) with Zenon, Magda and their children. After our meal and chatting we spent more than three hours driving through the Polish countryside going to Aleksandrów Kujawski where we had reservation in an agritourism house.
