Hello and dzien dobry

I am a hyphenated Polish-Canadien-Kiwi, and a 4th generation Varsovian. I inherited my grandad’s suitcase and genes for travel. Lovely Dunedin, a city we share with unique NZ fauna, has been my home for over a decade. From my perch on The Peninsula I see the ships from all over the world sail past my windows. This peaked my interest in the first Polish settlers who came to Otago.
I am one of the faces behind the FaceBook Page, Poles Down South. I do my best to keep the page current, and in the process, I’ve learned heaps about Poles in New Zealand and reconnected with my Polishness
