By the Polish seaside

Do you remember the first time when you saw the sea? I remember! I was maybe 5 years old or something like that and it was my first holidays by the seaside. First I walked through the pine forest and reach the sand dune, and then I saw… an infinity. There was only sand white like a flour, blue sky and an endless water. I started to smile and run through the beach until I reached the sea.

The Baltic Sea Coast is my favourite piece of homeland, but because I live in the south of Poland I have to travel the whole coutry to get there. The funny thing is that the Polish seaside is about 7 hours drive from my home, while Vienna, the capital of Austria, is only 4. In fact I don’t go the the seaside as I often as I wish to, and when I have the opportunity to spend some time there, it’s a great thing for me. Although our Polish Sea is rather cold and the weather sometines changes there in the blink of an eye, I just love to walk along the beach and listen to the sound of waves.

The sea changes everyday. Sometimes it’s calm and peaceful, another time angry and stormy. If the storm is great big, the pieces of amber and beautiful seashells cover the beach afterwards.

What I really like about the Polish seaside are long and sandy beaches. Walking there is just a pleasure. The area is flat so you can wander for miles from village to village, but most of the way there is nothing but the nature itself. Sometimes I used to get up very early and stroll along the seashore on my own, watching the peaceful sea at the break of dawn.

But the most amazing thing about the Polish seaside are incredibly beautiful sunsets. Nothing compares to this view! Every sunset is different, the colors of the sky change and the sea itself. Many people go to the beach at the end of the day to watch this beautiful speclacle of nature.

When I was a kid the Baltic Sea seemed to me a place where the world ends. Since I learned there is another land behind it, the land of Sweden actually, I started to dream about visiting this country. And here is what saw on the opposite shore of the sea: Gothenburg Archipelago, a hidden gem in Sweden .

    I don’t remember the first time I saw the city (I was 3 then I guess) but I do have some childhood memories from the seaside and they’re exactly like you’ve described – pine forest, withe sand and blue sky! I think our beaches are some of the most beautiful – wide and sandy. If only the water was slightly warmer 😉

      The weather can be freakish, I know something about that… Once I have been to the Polish seaside, there were only 4 sunny days during 3-weeks summer camp. It was raining all the time so we had to sit in our rooms, not to mention about all the clothes that couldn’t dry… Beside that I have got only good memories from holidays spent by the Baltic Sea 🙂
