    Well basically the reason that i'm doubting if i should go is that i'm really picky about food and there's alot of stuff that i dislike.
    I don't want to be rude infront of the family where i will be staying for a week when i'm in Poland.

    We dutch people have a saying: Wat de boer niet kent, freet ie niet.
    Roughly translated it means: What the farmer doesn't know, he doesn't eat.

    What can i expect in Poland food-wise?

    Kielbasa is good = Polish sausage. Perogies are good too = Polish potatoe filled raviolis.

    I never had a problem with food on my three holidays to Poland. It's not like in England... [​IMG]
    What DO you dislike? How about some good meat? Stew that tastes a little more sour? Nothing really strange to expect, maybe some things taste a little stronger than at Mc Donalds. [​IMG] But of course they taste the same at a Polish Mc Donalds. [​IMG]

    freet=vreet.

    Have fun in Poland and dont be picky, think about the kids in Africa that don't even have the chance to be picky [​IMG] I always do and it works for me.
