The Lopascinskis were looking for places to stay during their one year trip around the world when they appeared on my page on Couchsurfing. They are a family of four, with two children aged 10 and 12, and two awesome Polish parents who decided to quit their jobs and embark on this adventure. I invited them to stay at my place, and they brought their curiosity and excitement along. We had a very nice time together on a walk around town, and I made the kids banana and blueberry ice cream and orange popsicles, while the dad cooked lobster tails from the market for us. It was very nice to get to speak Polish again for a while and getting a bit of a family environment in my empty apartment. Also, we realized that the parents actually know my father and live in the same city – so I’m sure we will meet again!
