1, VACCINATIONS
In winter it was quite difficult to get vaccinations. Many people had to go to other towns. We could get Pfizer doses in Płock, around 100 km from Warsaw. But I didn’t complain, we had a small excursion. Now everyone can get vaccine anywhere, without waiting and close home. However, the anti-vaccination movement is currently on the rise, spreading online misinformation about vaccine safety and causing a worrying reduction in vaccination rates.

2. PŁOCK
Płock is a very nice city on Vistula River and I find it strange that there are very few photos on TE.
From 1079 to 1138 it was the capital of Poland. The Wzgórze Tumskie ("Cathedral Hill") with the Płock Castle and the Catholic Cathedral, which contains the sarcophagi of a number of Polish monarchs, is listed as a Historic Monument of Poland. It was the main city and administrative center of Mazovia in the Middle Ages before the rise of Warsaw as a major city of Poland, and later it remained a royal city of Poland. Płock is the seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Płock, one of the oldest dioceses in Poland, founded in the 11th century, and it is also the worldwide headquarters of the Mariavite Church. In Płock is located also the Marshal Stanisław Małachowski High School, the oldest school in Poland and one of the oldest in Central Europe.


3. SAD ANNIVERSARY
Today is my 14th birthday on TE. From the beginning I was fascinated with this site, soon I became really addicted. I posted photos and Workshops every day, even when travelling. TE changed my life, inspired me to the journeys. The most important was that I had met here so many friends. Before, all my friends were of my age. On TE I met people from over the world, young and old, speaking various languages, all with passion for photos and trips. I was lucky that I have met many people in person during TE-meetings. What fun and joy it was! rnTE nowadays is just the ghost of the site. Many features do not work, the activity is very low. Many people left the site, we lost some dear friends forever. Also, some friendships are gone. All this makes me very sad.
Thank you all for the wonderful moments I had here.
