As I mentioned when I stopped in Dresden, CLO had planned a Polish pottery trip to Bolesławiec, Poland.
Bolesławiec is in south western Poland and is called the "Miasto Ceramiki (Town of Ceramics). If you own any Polish pottery, it likely came from here. The traffic circles in town have oversized pottery decorating them! It is a little over 6 hours to drive from Frankfurt to Bolesławiec (and to help orient you if continued east another 5 hours you would be in Warsaw). Once we crossed the Germany/Poland border we were nearly there!
After lunch, we were within walking distance of the traffic circle that is surrounded by pottery shops. So we had several hours to shop and check out all those shops. I got several treasures along the way. Pro Tip - Bring a shopping bag! Most shops wrap things up in paper and then hand it to you. I didn't bring my purse that normally has my shopping bags tucked in a pocket. Luckily, I had brought a decent sized tote bag with my camera and water. So I carried the camera and used that bag.
