These pics of mine were taken in 1977-81 on transparency film (see the note at my Spitsbergen album)
It wasn't until the 1990s that the average citizen of Poland was allowed to see the West of Europe, or other continents. Even the then Yugoslavia, its communist leaders not on good terms with the Kremlin, was barely within reach. So when I was at university, I would board a train bound south-east and spend much of the summer – actually August since July tends to be very rainy – trekking in the mountains of Romania and Bulgaria. And I loved it.
