Commonly referred to as the “Pearl of the North,” Gdansk is a popular European weekend destination filled with rich history and some of the most photogenic streets I’ve ever walked along.
On Nick’s last European tour we snuck away to Poland for a few days to check out Gdansk, a pretty little city located along the Baltic Sea in the Pomerania region of the country.
Another day, another afternoon spent climbing church towers in search of the best views. This time we’re in Gdansk at St. Mary’s Church aka the Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

My sister Shannon attended college at the University of Hawaii and fell in love with Oahu. She now works in forestry and conservation on the island, and has been asking me to visit for years.
The truth is, I’ve traveled to Oahu several times and have never really felt a connection with the island. It’s always seemed so busy and expensive, and I usually prefer to travel to lesser known destinations.
