Hello I’m Nina, 26 and from the North East of England. I am the newest addition to The People's Poncho (The Waterproof Poncho) HQ in London. I grew up in the wilds of Northumberland and hence, am a lover of the outdoors. I’m also pretty partial to an earl grey tea!
I have Polish heritage (my surname is Zaluczkowska - cool huh?) and this most recent trip to Krakow & Zakopane, Poland was to celebrate my Uncle’s 60th Birthday with the rest of my family.
For a lot of people, I feel that Poland is under-rated. It is such an amazing place to visit with so much history, especially surrounding the second world war.
The summer is a great time to visit as the weather is warm. If you opt for winter, come prepared as the temperature will most often be below 0 degrees and in the mountains will of course be even colder.
My top tips for Krakow:
From Krakow we took a bus to Zakopane in the mountains (costs the equivalent of around £8 for a return trip) which took around 2 ½ hours and then a taxi to our final destination of Gliczarów Górny where the whole family were staying in an authentic wooden chalet.
My Top Tips for Zakopane/the mountains:

Fathers Day weekend was our yearly trip to a classic and popular cycle rally called L'Eroica Britannia.
Set in the rolling Derbyshire hills amid the green fields rises each year a celebration of all the beautiful bikes predating 1987, this was the year that steel frame bikes gave way to lighter and faster models.
