Where I stayed
Finally arrived in Wroclow, went to hostel but they had a 10pm curfew so they recommended Stangers Hostel over the road. I rang the bell but the door was open anyway to much amusement. The receptionist was very nice and she helped me out with a few things and we exchanged war sites stories as she'd just been to Ukraine with her Irish boyfriend. Went to a micro-brewery and joined by some none English speaking women who were on a school reunion so had a great laugh even though there was a language barrier. Stayed out till 3 am, went for a half naked dance in the fountain with one of the women, went salsa dancing in a night club, before getting lost on the way back to the hostel.
Friday 14 July
Chilled out in the hostel blogging and doing washing. Went for a run after meeting some girls from Leeds
Saturday 15 July
Went to all the sites in Wroclow, 2 towers, cathedral, botanical gardens, military museum (just contained a helmet collection), university, architecture museum (where I set the alarm off going to the toilet on the wrong floor) and a Panorama of the Battle of Raclawice. Then went to a cool BG and onto the micro-brewery again and quite by chance met with original receptionist with her lawyer girlfriend. Had a really good chat and were joined by some more people (a working travelling American from New York, his Polish girlfriend and another Pole. Went to the literary bar where we were joined by 3 more girls. Had loads of vodka/raspberry and straight vodka. Left for a night club going for a dance with Magdalena in the fountain. Wouldn't let me in night club due to wrong shoes so me and Magdalena went to one of her favourite pubs. Got absolutely smashed, joined by 3 girls, 3 boys and an Irish girl, got told I had a sexy voice
Sunday 16 July
Back at the hostel at 9.30 so I'd missed my 9am train so packed and went straight to the railway station. Found a train at 10 feeling so tired so went to sleep on wrong platform, woke up at 1005 - shit. Found train at 11, went to sleep on wrong platform, woke up at 11 - shit. Managed to stay awake for the 12 train on wrong platform but just managed to get it after running to correct platform. 4 hour journey to Krakow feeling really bad, went to sleep in carriage then in toilet, getting disturbed by a shocked girl as I'd forgot to lock the door.
