After a very dramatic weekend are we now in Poland and it looks like Mom will survive the ordeal.

Saturday night Mom got violently ill, vomiting and………….well you know. She was sweating and shaking freezing at the same time, and when her hands and arms started to tingle I got really worried. The ambulance guys showed up and checked her heart with a machine and put a cuff on her arm to check the pressure, which was through the roof. Not knowing what that means I was afraid she’ll blow up? I was so scared I forgot to beg for treats like I always do when we have visitors.

As it turned out Mom is ok and the guys suspected a food poison. They said they’ll take her to the hospital but what about me? Mom stayed and after a day she felt a little better. We are both very grateful we hadn’t left Sweden and got help so quickly.  

On Sunday morning she felt a little better so we continued driving south, following the coastline which is beautiful. We made a few stops to enjoy the sights and Mom trying her shaky legs.

   

 

We arrived in Ystad which is the city the ferry departs to Poland and we had no plan to get on it until Mom feels 100%. We parked and watched other ferries leave but when Mom checked the tickets she noticed a great deal on the price so there was no question about it, Mom figured she can rest on the ship

 


The ship still wasn’t full and there were mostly men in their gigantic trucks, We had a little room to ourselves so after a shower, we both went to sleep and woke up in Poland.

 

 

The ferry was pretty nice they even had a litterbox for me............some people seemed to think it was their ashtray, so it was also full of cigarette butts. Seems like every single truckdriver smokes a lot, cough and smoke, cough and smoke it even sounded like some of them were going to get sick all over themselves.

   

We arrived in Swinoujscie (try pronouncing that) around 8 pm and was looking for a place to park for the night, and we found it in a small town called Wolin. Probably the only name in Poland that doesn't include a few Zs and Cs............It was raining which we decided to send north since the Swedes really needed it.

Me sleeping on the floor under the table so I can keep a close watch on Mom

 

 

We awoke to the sunrise and went for a walk in an almost deserted town.

 

   

 

we met 2 fishermen sitting by the river, I don't think they caught anything because neither one of them were smiling when I tried to strike up a conversation.....

      

As we walked under the bridge we heard a scary sound, like it came from deep down somewhere. It turned out to be pigeons doing their thing, and the echo from the metal beams made it sound spooky.

 

 

 

This stone marker commemorates the death of Danish King Harald Bluetooth on what may have been the site of the legendary Viking fortress, Jomsborg, located in a park near the Dziwna Channel of the Oder River, year 986, which, according to legend, was the result of a fight just outside the gates of the fort

 

   


Harald Bluetooth, who may have gotten his nickname from a bad tooth, he was also known as Gormsson, because his father’s name was Gorm



   

I have no clue what this thing is, but it looks mean and dangerous

 

 

We continued south and since Mom couldn't log on to the internet she tried stopping at a McDonald (free internet all over the world) but didn't get help there either. For some reason, her own modem didn't want to connect? and there is free roaming within the EU countries. 

We ended up taking into a campsite that had WiFi so that problem is solved now through tech support and hopefully it'll last for the rest of the trip.

This town is called Szczecin ........a tongue twister for sure. 

 

The roads here aren't very nice from what we have seen so far, it's like driving in Queens NY bumpy patches everywhere. That doesn't stop the Polish people though, they drive like they are on AutoBahn in Germany. 

We are taking it very easy and leaving the road as often as necessary.

 

now it's time for an afternoon nap for both of us. Mom is almost back to herself so tomorrow we'll be up for new adventures 

 

bye for now
