Alaska’s First Holiday

Hiya,

Today, as promised, I will tell you where we went on our holiday and what we did. But first a little back story about me; I’m a hundred percent Polish and I lived in Poland until I was 10 years old and then moved to England with my parents and sister. My (less and) more extended family lives in Poland, scattered all over the country. As Alaska is half Polish, I thought it was important for her to meet my side of the family and see what it’s like in Poland.

Yes, I do know she won’t remember being there but I think it’s just as important for my family to meet her as it is for her to meet them. I wanted them all to see what she’s really like and just how perfect she is, because even in the advanced-technology days like today, I think meeting people face-to-face is important and I don’t mean via FaceTime.

After all the planning, packing and getting ready, off we went! Alaska was so good on the plane, reading the books I got for her and looking at photos on the iPad, I was amazed. She is so not the type of child to sit in one place for longer than thirty seconds, but she completely surprised me and was incredibly well behaved, phew!

We went to my home town and stayed at my Nana’s house and after about two hours, Alaska felt at home there and started showing off, bless her 🙂 We spent our week there meeting various family members, shopping and taking care of errands that had to be done while we’re in my home town. The best way to show what we did is with a series of pictures, so here they are:

Another reason why we went to Poland at that exact time was because of my Nana’s 70th birthday party, we all celebrated with a lot of food and drinks and as the weather was amazing, me and my cousins ended up turning it into a pool party; it was so lovely to spend time with my family which I haven’t seen in three whole years!

After a week in my home town, we went to a Polish seaside city of Gdansk with my parents, and my sister who joined us as well for our (probably) last holiday all together. We spent our days shopping touring the city, shopping going to the beach, shopping going out for meals, shopping going to the zoo, shopping going to the aquarium and seeing more family. Okay, so we mostly shopped (oops) but at least we enjoyed ourselves and spent time together which we never do. The easiest (and most interesting) way of sharing our holidays with you all will be to show you photos, so here they are:

We went to the Aquarium in Sopot and it was so interesting and Alaska loved all the 'sheesh' :')

Hard to see in this, but it was one of mine and Alaska's favourite moments at the zoo, after following a baby baboon all around its terrarium, Alaska got jealous of baby baboon cuddling its mummy and she came over to me for the biggest cuddle ever <3
