Memories of the expedition Poland-Trek 2012 - Tomasz Grzywaczewski
Thanks to its owner Łukasz Krajewski, we were able to discover the Queen of Polish Rivers on a comfortable motor yacht. The so-called. The King's gratifying hausboot has become our home for over three weeks. In spite of the small external dimensions, there are all amenities: kitchen, toilet, shower, electricity, comfortable bunks. We had a huge amount of film and photographic equipment with us, and we had no problems in the cabin without problems. In turn, a small immersion allows you to freely float to the shore and pass through low water areas.
However, the best part of Vistula Shipping is Łukasz Krajewski himself. The man who rides the Vistula river and other rivers is not only a business, but a great life passion. Passion he can infect others. Thanks to his great knowledge we learned more about the Queen of Polish Rivers than from any book or guide. Luke has friends in every village and town on the Vistula River. For his case we met many wonderful people who gave us an idea of life on the river. And most importantly: for him there is no impossible thing. The guiding motto of the expedition has become "Yes, we can" - go wherever we do the best shots, stay in the palace, avoid obstacles.
On behalf of the entire film team: Natalie Hill, Michał Barylski and Bartek Ryzy, I can only say: "Lukasz, with your help we experienced a wonderful adventure. Without you we would not even find half of what we saw and filmed! Great, great thanks! "
P.S. One more slogan for everyone considering the Vistula rafting: "This is madness !!! Madness ??? This is VISTULA !!! "
