Winter in Gdansk...minus 28C!

My girlfriend and I visited the "Trojmiasto" (Gdansk, Gdynia and Sopot) area of Poland for a weekend break in January 2010.

Our visit coincided with a particularly cold spell of weather which saw temperatures dip as low as minus 28 degrees Celsius!

We both wrapped up warm under several layers of clothing (including two pairs of gloves and three pairs of socks!)...and I even wore a woollen hat and scarf which is practically unheard of for me!

Despite all our layers, it was still bitterly cold as we explored the snowy streets and frozen harbour of Gdansk, and we retreated into various cafes and restaurants for hot soup, mulled wine and coffee.

      Thanks Julie! :-)
      It was painfully cold! I'm wearing about 6 layers in that main photo....and I was still shivering!
