Kostrzyn nad Odrą (180)
Greetings from Kostrzyn nad Odrą my dear reader! In today’s post I’ll tell you how come I’m in Poland and I’ll give you some spoilers about the BIG THINGS coming up for Lufo Art starting from July 1st 😏👀
29/06/2023, Kostrzyn nad Odrą, Poland 🇵🇱
The travel to Kostrzyn nad Odrą
This morning I got up at 6 am, prepared my backpack and headed this way. It took me just over 2 hours to get here: U7 to Neukölln, S42 to Südkreuz, regional train RE26 to Küstrin-Kietz, and finally a short bus to Kostrzyn nad Odrą.
You will probably never choose Kostrzyn nad Odrą as a tourist destination. Maybe that’s why I came here. Or not. Maybe I only came because Kostrzyn is the first town after the German border on this route, which is very convenient when you have the Deutschland ticket, valid for the whole country.
In fact, last year – more or less during the same dates – I made almost the same trip. I also did it with the Germany-wide ticket, it was only 9 euros at that time!. Instead of Kostrzyn, in 2022 I went to Frankfurt am Oder, crossed the border to Poland by walking across the bridge between the two countries, and stayed in Słubice.
The tradition for my birthday and New Year’s Eve
Travelling on this date has a special meaning for me: it is part of my tradition of celebrating both my birthday (01/07) and New Year’s Eve in a different place every year. I have been doing it since 2011 (at least). I have managed to keep it up even during the pandemic. One day I’ll do the full list to share it with you…
Why did I choose this place? I’ll be honest: because of the hotel. Sometimes I choose randomly according to the price of tickets. Other times I choose to visit friends and go to their cities, like that time when I went to the small town of Lappeenranta in Finland to visit E. ( https://lenster.xyz/posts/0xd3a4-0x27 ).
But this time, I chose according to the distance of the accommodation to Berlin: I looked for options within a certain travel time because I want to be in the Mauerpark on Sunday. I found this wonderful hotel and without even taking a look to Wikipedia about this place, I booked it.
During the trip (and also for almost the rest of the day 😅 ), I’ve been working on a new article. I’m writing about an artefact I’ve been working on since 2021. Unfortunately, I can’t reveal more details until the article is submitted and accepted.
Tests for the new article
