MY FIRST WINTER EXPERIENCE

By Eric - 3:00 PM

Growing up in a tropical country, winter or snow is somewhat a myth unless you see it yourself.
I have never experienced shivering just as like the freezing winter temperature in Poland.
Until, I got a teaching job offered abroad & that's when I started to believe that it is a dream come true and for sure,it's really true when I touched it for the first time.
Yes, my first winter experience, I always have this imagination of myself celebrating Christmas in a winter wonderland, walking in a white and soft snow like cotton balls. Honestly, I was pretty excited to see snow and have a blast on it. My imagination started to play again that I'd certainly take the chance of indulging myself the moment I arrived in Poland.
But little did I know that experiencing it first hand would be a different thing. Knowing later that I couldn't take a shower or bathe everyday even if there's a hot water( but you won't smell, promise you just wash your face and your private thing everyday) yet, you'd still chill and my skin starts to dry and itchy. Everyone told me that how much fun would it be to see snow and play with it so as during winter solstice where the days are shorter and the nights are longer. Truly, I didn't miss the defining moment of my life the first snow drop in my hands.
