In my last post I said "look out for a post on Poland soon" well, 3 months later....here it is. If you want to see a more creative take on our trip visit my friend Vicki's blog....Traveling Simile.
We arrived in Dresden, Germany on a Monday afternoon, hopped in our rental
|We made all the husbands jealous by getting to cruise around in this all week.|
We made a few stops before heading to our BnB to get a taste for what was in store for the rest of the week. It's pretty overwhelming seeing all the pottery and trying to decide on what you want to purchase so getting a little taster and wrapping our mind around the pieces and the patterns was necessary for a successful week of shopping.
We stayed and ate and drank at the Blue Beetroot. The staff was so incredibly nice and I honestly don't think there could be a better place to stay when you visit this region. Not to mention, Andy's (one of the shops), offers a discount if you stay here!
Our first full day of shopping was so much fun! Not only did we literally shop til we dropped but we laughed until our stomachs hurt especially while taking this photo. It took about 10 minutes for me to figure out how to take a "selfie" with an ipad while it was dark and so my finger wasn't in the way.

Wednesday was another full day of shopping...making stops at Borowski Glass Studio and shops in which we saw the beautiful pottery in the painting stage.
We also experienced a concentration camp on this trip as well as spending two days in the beautiful city of Dresden before flying out but I'll save those for another post! Until then you can admire my loot (I promise won't make you stare at it for 3 months ;)
PS: #ppwtg was our Instagram hashtag in case you were wondering :)
