    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.

    After a quick orientation tour of the city including a photo stop at Fisherman's Bastion overlooking the city of Budapest we checked into our hostel The first night we had a meet and greet dinner with some newbies that were joining the group, at which I had the most massive schnitzel I have ever seen in my life, and probably will ever see again! I ...

    ... to Krakow we decided to have lunch and we were finally able to speak about what we had seen and how it made us feel: a very necessary part of the experience to be able to articulate and share the horror we felt.
    But life goes on, and we spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying the old market square where there was quite a festive feel with many more people and many stalls dedicated to ...

    So. After a pretty rubbish nights sleep (still feeling ill), we got up in Krakow and checked out of yet another hostel. We dragged our bags to the train station, found out we could most definitely get on the 22:04 night train to Prague, then dumped our big rucksacks at left luggage. Deciding to roam Krakow a bit further was a good idea. It's a really beautiful city! We went into the square and Megan bought some souvenirs, and I bought a little ...

    On the final day of our time together, we went to the Wieliczka Salt Mine. Now, going to a Salt Mine might not sound cool, but let me assure you that it was! This mine, open since 1400, gets over 1 million visitors per year! There are huge rooms, chapels, lakes, a bar, a ballroom, and, ...
