Greets from Krakow!
A 24 hour break from cycling felt like a long time but did us good as we laid down 88km on a pretty easy ride to Krakow.
Having mastered the art of smuggling lunch out of the hotel's breakfast buffet, we were well sustained to get through the little villages back into the next chapter of city life.
One highlight of the day was seeing a Stork in its nest with FOUR chicks! A huge bird and his whole family just chiling up a telegraph pole in a tiny village. Fabulous.
Villages seem to have very quirky churches, monuments, tiny shops selling best-before-a-long-time-ago vegetables and a total absence of local produce. Where does Poland get all of its veg from and where does the meat come from?
Who needs meat anyway when a vegan burger bar is calling your name! We decided to make a dinner stop in Krakow in the interests of time and being able to see some of the city. The burgers were SO good we had to give other items on the menu a try too, just to make sure the delicious first round wasn't just by chance. 😀
Krakow is just buzzing with people. Somehow wherever we go our bikes attract some attention and curious people ask where we are going, where we've been and if the bikes are heavy. At a cash machine stop we chatted to a german couple who mentioned they are in a camper van. We said our goodbyes and a few hours later we discover they are 5 meters away from us on the same campsite 😀 small world of crossing paths with random strangers. :)Read more
