Polish Guide Needed in Seattle on
August 19, 2017
Polish Speaking Guide Needed
I am looking for a guide in Seattle on August 19 - a Polish
speaking person who will keep the company of 74-year-old Janina
while her granddaughter's and son is going to rafting. The
person doesn't have to be a professional guide. It is enough to
know Polish and English and have time to show show a little
town, to talk and sit in a coffee shop. Of course for a fee. She
doesn't speak English well and that's why I'm looking for
somebody polish speaking.
I will be grateful for any help or suggestions.

Support Two Hikers from
Poland on the Appalachian Trail
Two hikers from Poland welcome your help to blaze the
from Poland, Grzegorz Oziminski and Maciej Stromczynski, are
looking for support during their hike along the Appalachian
Trail. They will make the first step on July 1, 2017. That is a
couple of weeks away. Both hikers live in Czestochowa,
Poland. Last year they crossed the entire Pacific Crest Trail in
one season going in the south/north direction. They decided to
change directions on the AT starting at Mount Katahdin, Maine to
close the hike at Springer Mountain, Georgia.
Maciej managed to complete the PCT on their own, not knowing
anybody in the United States. I found out about their PCT
adventure by chance from a Polish newspaper and congratulated
them. They are the first Polish hikers to complete the entire
PCT in one season. This year it is the AT. Next year they are
planning to complete the Continental Divide (CD). Completing
the three major trails in the United States, PCT, AT, and CD,
will put them on the list of hikers completing the Triple Crown.
The link below
talks about their fund raiser in Poland. You can also find
details about their AT hike this year and the PCT last year.
I would like to help them along the Appalachian Trail by
providing basic food supplies. This can be accomplished by
sending food packages to previously identified post offices
along the trail. Maciej and Grzegorz have already sent me the
list of their post office stops. If you would like to contribute
to the AT hike by Maciej and Grzegorz you can either send a
check to me or send packages directly to the post offices along
the trail. If you choose to send the checks to me, I will
handle purchasing the food items and shipping them to the
hikers. All receipts will be available to you.
My goal is to collect as many non-perishable (“hiking/trail
type”) food items as possible. Cash donations would allow me to
cover shipping costs. A $20.00 bill in a package would also be
welcome by the hikers. If you prefer to personally send food
packages to Grzegorz and Maciej, I can send you the list of post
office stops and estimated dates of arrival. The Post Office has
certain rules about sending packages to hikers; I will be happy
to provide those rules.
Thank you for all your support!

Old Town Apartment For Rent
Beginning 21 July, my
sweet apartment in Warsaw's Old Town will be available for
short-term guests. It is a one-room apartment (one room, plus
kitchen and bathroom), with sleeping capacity of two to three.
It is on Piekarska street, just near the Kiliński monument.
This is my building,
which is next to the pink convent and one block or so from the
Old Town Square. My apartment is on the first (second, US)
floor. It is in the cobbled pedestrian zone, within the UNESCO
World Heritage site of Warsaw's Old Town. For the most part,
only people and horses and buggies go by the kitchen window, and
the main room looks out onto the courtyard (one of the nicest in
Warsaw!) and convent. You can see St. Martin's and St. John's
Cathedral from the window. Other photos and information
available upon request.
We'd like to have
people stay there for multiple nights, ideally, and semester or
academic-year stays are also possible. My dear friend and his
fiancée will be taking care of the apartment for me and will be
available to guests.
There are grocery
shops and other amenities just downstairs and around the corner,
as well of course all the restaurants, cafes and cultural life -
including the castle - of Old Town. To visit Warsaw's downtown
while staying here, you need no car. It is for example about a
10-15 minute walk, or a couple of bus stops, from the University
It is a wonderful
place to stay in Warsaw, with a special atmosphere that I miss

take it to the next level.
