Yesterday I took a flight from Norway to Cracow, Poland. It was interesting at the airport because we had to put our own luggage stamp on our bag and for some reason that was hard. Ive seen the airport people do it many times but I was so nervous I would make a mistake and do something wrong. Thankfully my backpack made it. In fact, it was one of the first 20 bags on the convayer belt; thats a first.
After I arrived, I took a bus to the hostel and dropped off my bag. It is wonderful how cheap Poland was. Just to put this into perspective, it was 6USD for one bus ticket in Oslo and in Poland it was 1 USD
OH MY GOODNESS!! Did I mention I love Poland... they have a Carrefour and Kebab. And Morgan, I fully plan on getting a Carrefour bag this time to bring home.
So Szymon and I went to my hostel to meet with Jessica and then we all went to the Wawel Castle (pronounced Vavel). Oh and Cracow is prounounces Cracoof. oh, this language. I could never learn how to say hi properly but got kinda close to saying thank you with is kinda a weird G sound with like gjohncueeair. I dont know, its a hard word and language.
We saw this beautiful castle and walked a lot this day, I have a blister to prove it, even with my comfy shoes, I dont think any shoes would be able to handle the amount of walking I have done and will do
We ordered their beer which was light, some dumplings, goulash with a fried pancake, and porkchops that had sheep cheese in it and all of this food was amazing. We split all of the plates and it only cost a total of $7 a person. Unbelieveable and one of my top meals. SO GOOD. Oh and we had this apple crisp cake, that wasnt as great though, I much prefer the tiramasu in this quaint cafe in Rome ;)
So Szymon had to leave and Jess and I went back to the hostel to pack up, shower, and go to bed as our feet were so tired.
We woke up early for our Auschwitz tour and I can only say that this was an ever changing tour. I am not ready to write about it yet as it is still too much for me to fully process
Now I am at the Airport waiting to go into the terminals for my long day of flights tomorrow. I am really excited because my friend Mathieu is going to pick Jessica and me up in Berlin and take us out to breakfast between our flights. Then we have a flight from Berlin to Athens and finally from Athens to Mykonos. DEFINITELY excited for Greece. Cant wait to sit on the beach. And maybe they will have those really yummy banana chocolate smoothies I had in Cancun many years ago. Otherwise I might have an adult drink or two. Dont worry parents, I will drink responsibly.
Ciao for now and thanks for reading.
