Greetings from Poland: Jordan Hulls

Hello from Poland! Just going to fill you all in with what this Holiday season has in store for me abroad. It will be different but still going to do my best to make it as normal as possible!

It’s December and it’s one of my favorite times of the year. Basketball season, Christmas season, doesn’t get much better (maybe Wedding season…). Although I would love to be home with my family this time of year, I’m still going to make it a fun holiday. I am fortunate enough to have my fiance out here with me and that will make everything much easier. We just went out and bought a Christmas tree and things to decorate the place up and make it as “homey” as possible. I’ll give out some pictures next week, so stay tuned!

We were looking into trying to travel somewhere if we had a couple of days off, but I’m not quite sure of the scheduling and if the weather would cooperate with us, so it’s probably going to be a Christmas in Slupsk, which is fine because we will have fun anyway! We will get together with teammates who don’t have family out here and celebrate with lots of food and find some game to play of some sort. It’s been great to have people on my team who have similar interests and easy to hang around because when you’re so far away from home, it’s good to have people to talk to.

This time of year is hard to be away from home but then again I’m very excited about new experiences as I’m doing what I love. Been very blessed with the opportunities in my life and I’m trying to make the most of it, even if it means missing Christmas with family, ha!

Hope everyone has a very merry Christmas and holiday season! Until next time, Stay Classy BTown!


  1. Oops! I guess since Jordy is living with his fiancĂ©, he probably can’t comment on the beauty of Polish women. Sorry Jordy, didn’t mean to create a problem for you.

    Merry Christmas!

  2. Since you have a few days, might I recommend heading south to Krakow for the holidays. The Rynek is absolutely stunning in the winter snow. You can catch a train and you’ll have no delays. Plus it’s cheap and dependable. Grab a couple of round trip tickets on an intercity and you’re golden. A few hours on a nice train to spend a couple days in one of the most beautiful cities in Polska sounds like a dream to me. Plus there’s Krakow’s surroundings reminded me of Bloomington.
