ZakaponeSeptember 24 in Poland
What do you do in a mountain resort in the rain and sleet.
Look in H&M where it’s dry.
Zakapone is about a hundred kms from Krakow and is the “Winter Capital “ of Poland.
It’s in a valley with sky resorts around and the usual sort of mountain things. Funicular, mountain lookout, rain, sleet, sun, repeat.
Has a great wooden church and an excellent cemetery . Also had market that sold cheap gloves As it was about 6 degrees these were the best investment of the trip.
Out travelling companions took it in their stride. In Vermont and Michigan this is spring weather.
Dinner in restaurant with traditional music and dancing, yes we were both forced to participate with varying degrees of reluctance.
Night time drive home to hotel, bus very quite.Read more
