How Much Did It Cost – Warsaw & Krakow Budget

Oh Poland I adore you. Some countries I just wanted to see. Not for any particular reason, something just clicked inside and said you know what I can’t wait to see Poland. The 10 hour over night bus ride from Vilnius almost killed me but Poland put it all right. With just a one night stay in Warsaw (wish it had been longer) and a few days spent in Krakow […]


Don’t Kick Me Off The Train

After my visit to Auschwitz the previous day and my friend that came to explore Krakow leaving today, it was time for me to be moving on as well.

Eventually dragging my sorry excuse for a body out of bed I prepared for a stroll into town hoping […]

After 24 hours though I was torn about leaving Warsaw, given the fun I had found in a place that was just a stop off. The weather was still good and I had a list of items on […]


A Day in Warsaw

It’s rather easy to sum up the night bus to Warsaw… freaking horrible. Starting with passengers slipping the bus driver a few litas to get a ride and skip the standard rate (I was so jealous I couldn’t do that). This lead onto the frequent stops so the driver could have a smoke and generally ensure we froze to death the entire way. In hindsight sitting near the front of […]
