    Let me tell you a little about how I almost made a fool of myself when I was in Poland last summer! 🇵🇱 So you have to take your shoes off when at a Polish host's house? Or, how many flowers should you give to your Polish date? If you're unsure, it may mean you need some tips

    Don't call it Eastern Europe (it's not, na dyou WILL be corrected) With no clear-cut definition of what constitutes 21st century Eastern Europe, it may be tempting to bundle up all the countries which used to be under the Soviet influence during the Cold War together.

    It’s not as cold as you think Before you start fearing running into a polar bear in the middle of Warsaw, brush up on your geography. Poles don’t live in the North Pole. Located in the transitional zone between oceanic & continental climates, Poland may have quite cold winters.

    Try to learn a few words, as Poles really appreciate the effort (even if terribly mispronounced) Even though the array of bizarre vowels and consonant combinations may be intimidating at first, learning a few phrases could help you break the ice with the locals.

    Take your shoes off When invited to a Pole’s house always take your shoes off. Unless they explicitly tell you that you can leave them on. Which also means that you should remember to bring socks without holes on your next trip to Poland.

    Don’t order tea with milk, unless you’re prepared to explain at length Poles reserve milk for coffee, cereals, so trying to add some to your tea will be met with some questions & making fun of your Britishness. If you want to order tea the Polish way, ask for a slice of lemon!

    Don’t come empty-handed When invited to a Polish house party always bring something for everyone to share. Chocolate, cake or a bottle of alcohol are all a great choices. Traditionally, guests should hand the gift to the female head of the family.
