      Smoky and "weird guests"

      The hostel itself was ok. The people were nice but the whole place smelled like cigarette smoke. It was explained that in a week the anti-smoking law would go into effect so everyone was going overboard with their smoking, but I don't know.

      Also, I was staying in one of the dorm rooms and I woke up to find a guy touching my forehead. After I sat up and started talking angrily at him, he left the room, and then I went to reception and explained the situation and all she could say to me was "Sometimes we have weird guests." There was no offer to help find the creek that came into the room so that it wouldn't happen again or so it wouldn't happen to someone else. I feel that other hostels would have done more in that situation.

      Rainy Afternoon in Krakow/Salt Mine

      ... created by the miners. Saints, kings and queens, miners, even the Last Supper are depicted in carved salt.

      While Tom explored the salty depths, I spent a lovely few hours exploring the wonderful square and sunning myself while eating pirogis, horseradish soup (far better than it sounds) and wine for lunch. Lovely. While there, I saw yet again the trumpeter play his (interrupted) ...

      Krakow, Auschwitz and a wander across the border!

      A travel blog entry by nickyandian on Nov 14, 2012

      ... started with a very weird Polish breakfast before we walked across a bridge to the Czech Republic. There was a sign post in the middle of the bridge that read ‘Poland’ on one side, and ‘Czech Republic’ on the other! We then caught a train to Prague which took around 4.5 hours. We checked into our hotel and walked through town down to St Charles’ bridge which looked amazing as dusk settled. This was our last stop on our Europe tour so it felt a bit strange. ...

      ... a place that looked ok, what I liked about it was that the menu said "our staff are all students and are saving for a holiday, so please tip generously".

      As the main town was relatively small, we thought it would be a good place for a walking tour. We found an information place and booked the Jewish quarter tour. Although, later on we saw lots of other “information” places and it seemed to us that there is no regulation to say what kind ...

      ... with me forever, its gripping detail and originality almost makes you sick. If you aren’t moved by such a visit, then I can only suggest that you have something seriously wrong with you. Our all day trip of the camps from Krakow cost 115 Zloty (25.00 euro) and was money well spent. I regret to say that we didn’t spend longer in Krakow as I could only imagine the place be riddled with some fantastic culture and ...
