Krakow, Poland

Well, our final Eastern Europe trip before we head off on our big finale was a weekend away to the lovely Krakow in Poland. It was a great weekend. Krakow itself was beautiful. Undestroyed by the Germans in the war, so it's as it was since the 1200's

We also went to Auschwitz, which was very interesting. Very sobering too. As much as you may have read or seen in other exhibitions or museums (of which we've been to a few on this subject) doesn't ever really prepare you for the actual scale of the sites involved. They are just enormous.

All in all though, a great weekend away, with lovely weather and food.

Next update will be from South America!!

Krakow! Stunning!

Krakow, Poland

What a stunning city! I thought I had seen some good places, but this one tops all of them...

Krakow is over 1000 years old, and it was Poland's old capital. Looking at the place it surprises me that is not currently, but according to legend, Hitler forbade the destruction of the city and that he may have been planning to live here after the Germans won WWII... Whether any of thats true or not I would say that he couldn't have picked a lovelier place to live...

Beautiful castles, the world's largest medieval square, churches, fortifications, streets, etc. Lovely, except for the fucking weather...

It has hardly stopped raining since we left Moscow, particularly in the Baltic States. It has been raining cold and miserable almost every day. Even on days like today when the morning was a little cloudy and about 15degrees, it starts raining in the afternoon... SHITHOUSE!

Well it's about 5 now, we have a train to Prague tonight at about 10:20pm... I am excited because my brother said he might be coming out to meet me and my family in Europe next week!!! Very happy about that, so me and Adam might go and get drunk before the train!

Will write again from Prague!
