|"Work will set you free"|
stolen in 2009.
The trip to Auschwitz was one of the main reasons my friend came to visit Poland, it was very interesting, but mentally exhausting. I think the exhaustion had three factors, the heat, the length of the tour and the sheer amount of people there.
It was a short time my friend and I spent in Poland, not even a full weekend, but we managed to cram all the things I told her we need to do.
- Eat Polish sausages
- Drink at the Good Bye Lenin
- Eat a Zapiekanka
- Go to a 4 zloty bar
Now she is on a flight back to Australia and I have that sinking realisation that it will be a long time before I see anyone from Australia again.
The weekend before I went to Krakow, I went to Brno. Brno is the second largest city in both land size and population in the Czech Republic, it is very pretty but very quiet. It could be the time of year I visited though, because it is a very large university town and university is out for the summer.
If you ever head to Brno, stay at the Ruta 80 hostel - it's a funky little tribute to the 80's.
