On Melmac, saying "have a nice day" is punishable by death.

A timely trip to Krakow

Yesterday we had a flight to Krakow in Poland, taking what appeared to be a mix of final year schoolchildren and some journalists off to visit Auschwitz concentration camp.  The rest of the crew joined in with the delegation, and made their way off in buses and taxis.

I set out from the hotel on foot in the beautiful autumn sun to discover the older parts of Krakow, and just explore a wee bit.   I really enjoy the old buildings and massive central squares in Eastern Europe.  Walking around in the sun, eating street food, watching the locals, exploring the meandering streets 🙂

Then a pot of tea on a large cafe-boat moored on the river Wisla, with great views of Wawel Castle http://www.wawel.krakow.pl/en/

I even scrammed back to the hotel for a very restful 2 hours sleep before showtime for a nice 2 1/2 hour trip home.  Wouldn’t mind more duties like that!  The passengers were great too…strangely enough nobody threatening to punch F**k out of anyone, falling out of toilet doors undressed, P*shing themselves, or having very bad sing songs!  Fancy that?

This doesn't look like such a bad job 🙂

About to move into the main square in the old town.

I just loved the 'feel' of the place, with the trams and the traffic working alongside. It was a beautiful afternoon too which always helps!

Under the belly of 'The Beast' that is GJMAA

 

And finally a pot of tea on a cafe boat looking at the Castle before stealing off to the hotel for two hours sleep before the flight home 🙂

The next day (er…this one, as I type) brought a dirty DIY session of lifting floorboards, sifting through confusion oh and breaking the key to my brothers car….so the moral is, whenever you get a chance to recharge the batteries go for it!
