My first adventure to the Masovian Province of Poland was to the obscure village of Kuklówka. I was working here as a volunteer for three days with Angloville on an adventure out of Warsaw. I was based the the Kuklówka Conference Centre for the weekend. It was right up my street/ulica and could easily have made a separate story for my “Quirky Encounters/Dziwaczne Odkrycia” series as it was held in an obscure countryside village.
This is a great tranquil retreat and here are some things I loved about the Hotel.
On the Angloville course, I roomed with Martin from England. The room was cosy, warm and compact. We had a TV (which we watched a bit of only) and two beds plus a radiator to dry our wet clothes due to the heavy snow the previous few days. There was also a clean bathroom.
As we were here on a weekend away, we had three meals a day. The food was diverse and delicious and the usual suspects – salad, pasta, hearty lasagne. One complaint only – no pierogi! We are in Poland but these dishes make up for it.
3.Quiet Village – Kuklowka
This is the most remote and quiet village I have been in in Poland. Yes, Kuklowka is much more remote than holy Pelplin or Biskupiec and a world away from Starogard Culprit and her Kokoszkowy hideout.
4.Great for Conferences
As the title suggests, Kuklówka Conference Hotel in Masovian Countryside is a perfect place for conferences. There are meeting rooms for all sorts of events. We played games, hosted presentations, watched videos, attended seminars and taught English to local Polish people here. As you can tell it was a lot of fun, here are some photos of the conference rooms.
5.Fond Memories, Meeting Nice People
You may have read that a major catalyst for starting this website and relocating to Poland was because I was lied to and disrespected on my previous website, Don’t Stop Living. This was the month that it bit the dust (December 2016) and I was blessed to have a nice weekend here with real people who were more honest to me. I think daily about why that girl had to lie to me, what her motives or intentions were as I am still not convinced she wanted me to kill myself, but she did want to hurt me for whatever reason. I turned the corner and the weekend at Kuklówka Conference Hotel in Masovian Countryside was a turning point on my journey. Just two weeks after this conference, I had started this new website, Northern Irishman in Poland. Here are some memories. Thanks, everyone.
