Warsaw for the lazy…

I love city trips. But I’m not the Hop-On/Hop-Off bus tourist or the nerdy museum visitor. Don’t get me wrong, everyone has their own travel style. Whilst it may be fun for people to drive around with a guide (which is great if you don’t have plenty of time and want to get an overview…

Red Wine Cake
