    So Yehh, im off to Poland tomorrow with my GF (who is Polish).

    A little skeptical about the place as ive heard good and bad things.

    Anyone in BHW have any advice, tips or past mistakes that I can learn from?. I am sure it will be great anyway.

    Thanks everyone :D.

    I am Polish, born and raised - I went to Poland for a month and came back about a week ago.

    You don't need to worry about anything, a lot of people speak English. The only thing I would advise
    is avoid the main roads as there is a lot of traffic (depending where you're going) and most of the roads
    are terrible - a lot of them are closed for repairs, some have massive (like crater big) potholes so drive
    slowly - if you're driving.

    Also, don't carry around important documents just in case you come across some a-hole that does
    try to steal them.

    One more thing: If you ever take a bus - whether the big bus or a shuttle bus, be there 15 minutes early as they leave right at the time specified. So if they say 4:00 they leave at 3:59:59.

    Sorry, last thing - obey traffic laws like actually wait for the light to turn green before you cross the street and always cross at the white crossing lines, otherwise you'll get a hefty fine (yeah they're strict about this).
