    An update on this from my end...

    I've now booked flights there and back. I'm going to the Mrs' first to avoid any unnecessary contact with anyone.
    So a 10 day holiday, 5 days at hers and 5 days travelling.

    Flight to Poznan, then train from there (connections are actually fine).

    Then I'm going to get a taxi to Lobez (apparently about 20mins away) and then train from there to Gdansk. Then as I've said here already, Gdansk to Warsaw then to Krakow. Then fly home form there. Looking like 2nts in Gdansk, 1nt in Warsaw and 2nts in Krakow. But that isn't 100% decided yet.

    @Rick James I need your help now...

    This is all based on travelling through multiple countries is looking like a big safety risk right now so I want to limit it to just the one.

    So, it looks like I may go exploring just through Poland by myself.
    Very early stages in planning now but what I'm thinking is to fly from London to Krakow and then either hire a car or travel by train to Szczecin, maybe going as far North as Gdansk. I've got about 4/5 days to do whatever I want. Don't want to travel more than about 3hrs a day and then end up somewhere I can spend a night or 2 to appreciate some sites and culture.

    What do you think could be the best thing to do?

    I'd also appreciate some knowledge of Poland's safety policies whilst out and about. Like where I have to wear a mask and all that kinda BS.

    It's a once in a lifetime opportunity. No wife and kids for 4 weeks and a confirmed 16 day break from work. I'll regret it if I don't, I know that. But I could equally fly to Greece and lie on the beach in an all.inclusove resort for a week.
    So I need to do something. I like doing new things and the thought of exploring parts of Europe by train is the most exciting thing I've thought of so far.

    @Rick James holy s--- that place look beautiful. So peaceful and relaxing. Might have to head over once I have a legit passport again




    .... edit - if you at saying in paid for accommodation, keep up to date with the email address you gave them. The amount of f---s that have rocked up to the hostel I worked at even though they had been emailed and told their booking was cancelled ‍♀️

    I'd never looked at photos of Poland specifically really but I've always wanted to visit eastern/southeastern Europe cuz all the pics of the rural/nature areas look amazing.

    @Michael Myers I need your help and input on this.

    My "travel through Europe by train" holiday has been completely f----- by France, Belgium and Holland being put on a quarantine list for return to the UK. Meaning if I travel to any of those countries then on return I have to self isolate for 14 days after. f--- that.

    Question I have @Michael Myers is; do you know of there are any restrictions with travel from Holland to Germany?
    Maybe I can find a loophole in the respect that I'll be returning to the UK from Poland rather than Holland.
