Where I stayed

Well so the trip went from the hostel.. where I woke up feeling decidedly sick.. I figures a kit kat would fix that problem.. ummmm.. no.. so after feeling like I wanted to throw up all day we drive to the caves and walk up them.. however we left a man behind or rather a woman... Julia was on the tour herself and was in the toilet... we left after we got instructions then around the first bend we realised someone was missing.. waited 5 minutes figures she would catch the free train and started walking again.. Sorry Julia... we really didn't mean it.. anyways we went to the caves and they are very much like janolin caves back home.. but the difference is here they take you on a boat ride.. way cool but pretty cold.. got some really cool footage.. but too dark.. damn it..

Along this theme of leaving a man behind.. I also did.. Sheree and I where heading to the tour and we where catching a tube to where it started.. So there we are on the right side.. with our backpacks on and the train comes.. I get on the train.. hear the alarm that signifies the train is leaving and the doors shut.. me on the inside of the train.. Sheree on the outside.. pressing the button frantically doesn't help.. trust me.. so laughing hysterically and everyone on the train watching.. we wave adieu and meet at the next station.. as I hope off and wait for her... but Aussies.. we generally never leave a man behind..

So we finish at the caves.. head to lunch where I am still hung over and I order some dumplings with ham... and sour krout.. or however you spell that.. not good.. but oh well.. off to Brno.. where we leave our luggage and head into town..

So this part of the trip we organise couchettes.. we wait for the train which doesn't come until 1.34am... and we get in at 7.30am.. anyways.. Sheree was laughing hysterically about this.. so we booked the top couchette.. and there are three.. so it is like a triple bunkbed.. now some smart arse hooked there luggage around the ladder so it couldn't be moved.. well it took me two tries to get up.. as our luggage was in the way as well... the second time I was dangling over one bed trying to lever myself up.. threw the leg onto the bed and pushed.. not graceful.. but hey it does the job.. it was way more comforatable than the seats.. however there was a dog sleeping in our compartment with us..

So we get into warsaw and head to the hostel where we sleep then get some dinner.. fish and chips and back to bed.. the hostel Nathans Villa is fabulous.. free coffee, tea and internet and laundry.. awesome..
