Szczecin/Stettin 2020

This blog is about traveling in Asia, but Corona makes travel abroad impractical, as my difficulties escaping Bangladesh have demonstrated. So I’ll be traveling in the EU for a while, where I cannot get stuck.

First was Sczczecin (German: Stettin) in western Poland, close to the Baltic Sea. It’s a pleasant city, beautifully restored yet still showing signs of communist times. It’s also a short ride away from Swinemünde with its endless beaches at the Baltic. You can just walk west from Swinoujście (German: Swinemünde) and at some invisible point you are in Usedom in Germany. This used to be a defended border. I love the EU.
