Solo travel experience

I came here as an Erasmus student and I live in Lodz. In these six months, I want to travel as much as I can. From my experiences, Piotrkowska is a street you should definitely explore. It is the longest street in Lodz and Manufaktura has a unique vibe. As a Turkish person, I didn't enjoy the food that extensively, but I believe I haven't tried enough.

About Me

Hi, my name is Kamila and I’m the architecture student. I live in Łódź in the center of Poland. I really like to travel because I love to visit new places and see other type of architecture. My favorite thing to do on a trip is to visit all churches and art galleries that I have been learning during my classes. That helps me to remember them and it’s really satisfying when you can see something live that you have been learning about. I also really like to share my knowledge about them.
