Poland – a Vivid Modern Country – Come in the Spring!
Magda Trawińska-Krawiec writes of her experience setting up Tours to Poland – some with a special focus on women.
I started running my own travel agency over one year ago. I started from selling tour packages to Poles in my hometown, Racibórz. I soon realized I was looking for something more. I wanted to be self-dependent, use my creativity and show Poland to foreign people.
I risked and I decided to create my own products. Fortunately, I had experience in managing group travel and event organization because I worked for a women’s football club (the champions of Poland – RTP Unia Racibórz) and I organised training camps for them.
I was thinking in what direction I should go. I decided to focus on smaller groups and private tours and provide service on the highest level. I am laughing that my nature didn’t allow me to do it other way because I am a perfectionist and I like when everything is done the best I can. I thought my tours must have some theme – always!
GOURMET TOURS: So, at first, I created gourmet tour. Poland is not associated with its cuisine and many people have no notion about it at all. I thought it could be a good idea because Polish cuisine is worth tasting and it has a variety of flavors.
PRIVATE TOURS: Then my creativity said to me: “think also about private tours”. Foreign tourists might like theme-private tours. They need someone who will let them see the places like the locals. March is coming, I am waiting for spring impatiently – I decided to bring spring to me by creating a new itinerary.
FOR WOMEN: Only for women, because spring is the season of women. It uncovers their beauty after gloomy winter (winter in Poland is not always snow, it is very often foul, wet weather and dullness around). What is more, I thought about women, because my mum was an inspiration for me. She runs amazing psychological workshops for women in Poland and she learns me how amazing women are and what they need.
My tour is a relaxing time for every woman and her girlfriends. It is really important to realize that every one of us needs some time to reset her thoughts, to forget about worries and regrets and what helps us to do it is the time spent with our friends. I do believe so!
During our trip to Poland women have a chance to relax in SPA, have some time to chat with their friends over tea/coffee and delicious dessert, to buy clothes of Polish designers and to visit magnificent Kraków which I believe is the most beautiful city in Poland.
Maybe in the future we can join my mum’s and my talents and propose workshops for women all over the world in Poland. I have a wish and I hope it will fulfill! Please keep your fingers crossed
I believe that many people have distorted image of Poland. They think about Poland as a grey, sad, communist place whereas in fact it is a developing, vivid and modern country which can surprise many foreign tourists. Please come and see it. Don’t be afraid because you don’t have to be – Spring is the best time for changes and if you feel like starting these changes from a journey, I recommend Poland☺
