The Warsaw Wanderers

Fife and Tayside Annual Foreign City Break.

Nine members of the Fife and Tayside Jaguars enthusiasts club ventured on our annual foreign city break which this year was to Warsaw.

The weather was not as kind to us in previous years but by in large, we were pretty successful at dodging the showers and enjoying the warm sunny intervals. We all set off for a spot of sightseeing on the ‘hop on’ bus – an example of the work of the bus maker Alexander Dennis whose factory in Falkirk we visited with the club in April?

The city had largely been rebuilt after the 2nd World War but the ‘old town’ was a particular favourite of the group. Other highlights included coming across an outstanding outdoor display of military aircraft, vehicles and missiles followed by a celebration for the Polish Border Guards which included a military band, marching and was attended by the Polish President.

Although we didn’t have our cars with us we did spot quite a few Jaguars and a range of other interesting marques including an Aston Martin Lagonda. Motoring withdrawal symptoms were remedied by the setting up of the Fife and Tayside Touring Scooter Squad to help us get around on our various antics.

Food and drink are always an important part of any trip and Warsaw did not disappoint. The local food was amazing as was the three tone beer, ice cream and heavenly alcoholic hot chocolates from the oldest chocolate shop in town.

Overall, another fantastic trip and our thanks to Chairman Brian for his excellent organisation Now, where to next year?
