    Default My visit in Lancut castle and meeting Danka

    In June My son and I visited My family in Poland in town an hour away from the city of Lancut. Having met Danka on this forum few months earlier, I jumped on the opportunity to meet her in person and to check out the famous orchid green house in the Lancut castle. And what a great visit that was!!! I felt like we had an instant friendship happen after few minutes of meeting each other. Danka gave me a VIP tour of the greenhouse. I was like being in a jungle with countless orchids growing conveniently at eye level, with incredibly knowledgeable guide giving you more information then you can absorb in one day. Danka did great job designing the orchid display with trees and vines creating a natural environment and completely hiding the technology. My son Kostek and I, stayed there for over 2 hours, met all the other women working with Danka. We all had coffee together and I am afraid my son ate Danka's lunch. Unfortunately we only had my sister's cellphone to take pictures with, but that's better than nothing. So here we are in Lancut orchid heaven: Danka--on first picture, my son--fascinated by the misting system, and the two of us on the last picture.

    What a good initiative to go meet another forum member and go to see the orchids at Lancut!
    I remember the thread that Danka started about it and how beautiful it looked.
    So nice to see those pictures, orchids bring people together!

    WOW!!! Is fantastic there! The thread that Danka posted made me think of going there if I go to Europe next year. For now I can only keep my fingers crossed...

    It really is amazing experience to meet someone on the forum and then in person.
    Bruce, This forum is a wonderful thing, Thanks!

    Nelson, I wish you could be there too, so we can enjoy your pictures of the unusual flowers Danka has there!

    Tim, Thanks for the complements.

    Ron, I am still hoping to meet you in Albany Orchid Society meeting. I went twice, and you escaped me!!!
