This is a guest post by Susan Guillory of The Unexplorer.

If you’re looking for a country that’s just as entertaining, as full of great cuisine, and as welcoming (if not more) than its Western European counterparts, I highly recommend Poland. Having had no preconceived notions about the country, I was continually delighted on a recent trip there.

No matter what your pleasure, there’s more than enough to keep you busy. […]

LOT Polish Airlines’ First Inaugural Flight: LA to Warsaw

This is a guest post by Susan Guillory of The Unexplorer.

Having never been on an inaugural flight, I was delighted to be invited by Poland’s LOT Airlines to fly on the first ever flight from Los Angeles to Warsaw in April of 2017.

Located on an island it shares with a US Naval Base, Hotel del, as locals call it, is a natural choice for weddings and conferences. In fact, years ago, I stumbled onto a sunset wedding on the hotel’s lawn and peered like a peeping Tom at the magical scene.
Hollywood History
If you’ve seen “Some Like It Hot,” you may recognize some of the setting. In 1958, you would have seen Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, and Jack Lemmon strolling around the property, though they weren’t the first Hollywood celebrities to stay at the hotel. Given its close proximity to Los Angeles (2-3 hours north, depending on traffic), it should be no surprise that stars like Mary Pickford, Ronald Reagan, and Goldie Hawn have been guests over the decades.
