The Men in Suits...

4 min read    3 comments

You've just completed the Warsaw leg of your travels and everything is fine and dandy. As you walk down Marshal Street on the way to Dworzec Centralny station, you spot a kiosk and decide to buy a newspaper for your train journey. You take out your wallet, but just as you are about to hand over the reddies, a golden eagle that just happens to be flying over the area spots the wallet and mistakes it for his favourite chocolate bar. It's all over in an instant. The bird swoops down, steals the wallet and flies off into the unknown. Realizing his mistake, the bird tries to turn round but accidentally drops the wallet into the river Vistula. Gone.

Unfortunately this is not all. Taking advantage of your bewilderment, a rogue band of gnome outlaws seizes the opportunity to liberate you from your passport. It's a nightmare scenario.

It's times like this when those noble, nicely-suited chaps in your embassy can really come to the rescue. Of course, let's hope that you don't need to get in contact with any of the following institutions for anything other than good reasons, but misfortunes can happen.

On a more enterprising note, several of the places listed below can open the gates if you're planning to extend your travels. If you're inspired to journey further East to Moscow or St. Petersburg you're likely to need a visa (this is a requirement for most non-Russian nationals). Similarly for China if you're intending to go Trans-Mongolian to the orient. Do your research first as the Russian visa requires an invitation and various other tit-bits before the embassy will process it. Bear in mind too that, although visas can be issued swiftly, if you've got a week to play with the prices will be significantly cheaper.
