Pomeranian Interlude


Original YT playout date: 19 December 2008
Duration: 10:47

Here’s the rest of the Pomeranian footage that you saw something of in the Walcz video recently, this time off the Vado. The fine meal we had in great company in the Hunting Palace hotel in Świdwin. I can tell you that Pomerania is a fine part of the world. I always like going there.

Take This Walcz


Original YT playout date: 13 December 2008
Duration: 33:50

Walcz (pronounced “vouch”) is the name of a pleasant Pomeranian town derived from the Kashubian word Wolcz and once called Deutsch Krone.

From there, we drive on to observe some more of the idyll that is the golden Polish autumn in the rolling forest roads of Pomerania.

The precise co-ordinates of the lovely woodland restaurant shown here are as follows:

geo:lat=53.422141645164224
geo:lon=16.387996673583984

I definitely recommend it.

Uncle Davey’s Herts Content S2 E1 – Journey Over to Herts


Original YT playout date: 12 July 2008
Duration: 25:34

Ironically this is being uploaded on a day (6th May 2019) when I am making a similar journey from the UK to Poland in the reverse direction. Already for several years Stryków is less significant, as the motorways go right through now. Still, nice trip down memory’s country rther too narrow lanes.

It’s a second series of Uncle Davey’s Herts Content. This time we go there by car, unlike last time in the plane. Here we see Strykow in the days when the motorway didn’t go all the way to Warsaw.

Returning from Tczew over local roads


Original YT playout date: 12 April 2008
Duration: 15:12

Driving on roads which nowadays are not used much as the motorways are in place. Malbork is the seat of the templars or Teutonic Knights in Poland, or Prussia, as it then was.

Rogue Trader


Original playout date: 4 April 2008
Duration: 2:39

I received a private message saying it would be a good idea if I gave the sozzled street trader in the Tczew video a separate clip, so that he’d be seen by more than those few willing to watch through nearly a quarter of an hour film about some remote Polish town.

Tczew (1 of 2)


Original playout date: 29 March 2008
Duration: 14:59

I like Tczew, it’s the old German city of Dirschau, mention in Gunter Grass’s Tin Drum. I have spent quite a few nice times there.

I wasn’t sure if people would like my portrayal style as in Grudziadz another Northern Polish town with a German background, I got a lot of flack, but actualy the likes are 30 on this with only 2 dislikes.

The GPS machine seems to be taking me on a right wild goose chase, into someone’s yard instead of the centre of the town. Those were not exactly the days of google maps and the precision we now have, and that’s bad enough at times.
