My Winter in Switzerland, Berlin and Gdansk

Hey hey, I’m going to start the Winter away from Paris. 3 weeks of travelling in very different worlds from December 21st onwards. First an ethereal Christmas in Switzerland, hunting in the (hopefully) snowbound plains of Geneva, Lausanne and Zurich. After that an urban voyage to Berlin for New Year’s Eve and then a trip to Gdansk, North Poland, where I’d love to discover the blossoming underground art scene.

    Oh my, aren´t you coming to Madrid?. There’s not much to hunt over here but I promise to make up for the rest.

    Why is it underground? Poland is free country.

    Gdansk is where Solidarity Movement begin, da?

    Poland, nice. I’m in Switzerland from the 21st also, Zurich, Solothurn and the slopes. Perhaps you’ll hunt me down, follow the leopard print earmuffs!

    and yes – krakow sounds much better, an amazing artistic atmosphere it has.

    well, as for the fashion warsaw seems to be the only city with enough style-savvy people to make a impromptu street style photoshoot worth the effort. krakow and tri-city are okay but im not sure about their style (now kill me).

    Did you go to Gdanks? What the findings were?
    I’ve been to Krakow and I have to say it’s great, and really “underground” as many of the better places are under the ground level :-D
