I am planning to go Eurotripping in October, and i want to visit Poland, which is a country out of Schengen’s limits.
 
A friend of mine told me that, once i get in Europe, if i want to visit a place temporarily i can get a temporary visa visiting my country’s embassy.
 
Is that true?

Where are you from?  You may not require a Visa to visit Poland.  Canadians don’t need one, and i’m sure it’s the same for Americans.

Depends on your nationality, but you probably don’t need it.  Wikitravel has a list of countries that do not: http://wikitravel.org/en/Poland#Visas  I dont know how it works for all countries, but a lot of the big traveler countries (US AUS CAD EU UK) most of our visas can be obtained from foreign embassys but certain visas require a bit of time for processing, which can be a&nbsproblem while your traveling.  If you do need one, find out if you have&nbspolish embassy in your country and inquire about it.   
 
Actually, Poland has been accepted as Schengen member, but its not yet implemented. &nbsplanned for early ’08 along with a big list of others.
