It was time for a Summer Vacation. This time the destination was Poland via France and Germany.After a short boat journey from my home island of Jersey, we arrived in St. Malo France. After a 2 hour drive, we arrived in Caen. Caen, just for a night stop. Caen seems to be a lovely town and would like to visit again as this was just a night stop before heading on.
Early on the next morning after a lovely breakfast at the Hotel, we set off to Germany, an approx 6 an 1/2 hour drive, which due to some inclement weather and various stops ended up being around 9 hours.
Once arrived at our destination in Hagen Germany we met with some friends for the evening. The next morning after our goodbyes, we set off for Poland, and the city of Szczecin.

My girlfriend and I spent a few days in the city, below are a few photos from that time.

The City of Szczecin, is beautiful. A typical city, busy with lots to see and do, we were only there for a week before heading on, a week is not long enough to see everything so another trip is planned. Below a few photos from this beautiful city.
