... who were kind to each other, looked out for one another, nice to the tour guide and bus driver, didn’t lose our passports, arrived at meeting points on time, didn’t drink excessively, and still remained positive thinkers, despite really long bus rides and less than satisfactory accommodations.

In fact I have purchased a few things in krakow, amber as well. It is cheaper,yes, but I am going by the theory if I see something i really like, or reminds me of someone, I buy it. And buy I did in Poland! Lucky there wasn't a h&m here, although I did spot my first ...
