A while ago, I wrote a guest post for fellow travel bloggers of Always Trekking on 5 Differences between the Dutch and Poles (from a Pole’s perspective) and that made me think I should also share my thoughts here too, on my blog.As I was living among Dutch people for a week (I know it is not enough to make objective comments or judgement), I was able to observe how they behave and live and confront it with the lifestyle and way of thinking of Polish people.

Unfortunately, in most Polish families parents don’t find enough time for their kids. They do look so miserable when walking down the streets. It’s such a cold and unwelcoming atmosphere in some places in Poland and it scares tourists off.

Actually, older people consider being a gay/lesbian as an illness and keep saying “it’s a disease of 21st century! People go absolutely crazy with the alcohol, but I guess it will never change.

” The majority of Polish society is disguised by them whereas in Holland nobody cares and you can express your sexuality without being judged. They indulge themselves in a glass or two of red wine, they have a family dinner together, some cake, they chat a lot, dance, watch TV and play cards – all in moderation. "It will never happen to me" said every person before it happened to them. The difference is that they are usually more costly when you're in a foreign country.

That's why travelling without insurance is a bad idea.

There's just no excuse to put yourself in such a risk.
