As I mentioned in my last post, we went to Podlasie in the eastern part of Poland. And although weather was not perfect - chilly and a bit wet, we managed to see quite a bit. In that part of Poland there are three big National Parks - two river parks (Biebrzański i Narwiański Park Narodowy) and a big forest park (Białowieski Park Narodowy). Originally we were supposed to go to the Białowieski National Park to see the famous bisons, but I couldn't find any nice and not too expensive pensions to stay and that's why we ended up in Pentowo.

Narew Nat'l Park.
|In few places instead of footbridge there was a pontoon that|
needed to be pulled - not an easy (nor clean) job,
but Jas was happy to help in getting us to the other side.
|Many tiny spiders reminded us of the book |
|The marshland in Biebrza Nat'l Park |

|Playing with fallen leaves is so much fun.|
|A herd of wild koniki polskie (Polish primitive horses) |
galloped in front of our car while we were driving
through the Biebrza Nat'l Park.
|In fall Polish forests are full of delicious wild mushrooms.|
