twice in Poland; part 2 long weekend

i hoped off from the taxi, walked to central bus station, and i found waiting for me, two friends of mine Kate & Chen, i picked them up and we head back to the apartment that we got from our friend Magda.

the story of my two friends; i just convinced them to join to travel with us before we left Israel, and they agree, they just can weekend, but we had a great long weekend.

next day, we all went to another milk bar 🙂 and after the breakfast we start to hide from the rain by drinking beer in some bars, later we were lucky that stopped and we could went to the student festival that took place in the same night :). that is a real local experience because you get meet more locals.


all of us meet at the train station, to start our journey to Gdansk, 5.5 hours, there we have other friend 🙂 other reason why to visit the city, we had an great apartment for the five of us me, Joe, Marjana, Kate and Chen. , our friend came over, she bring me a gift a Kodak camera for my birthday that was 2 month ago 🙂 we had a wine, and we head out to check it out the city, but first to the Baltic sea.


i remember but don't remember the name, a restaurant all the menu its talking about potatoes, they put the potatoes in the oven then they put some extra on the top, you have to find this place and try it, at the old city. after the dinner we check some bars.

at the morning we head by a car that we rent to a city called Malbork, Joe he wanted to visit that city so much to visit the castle over there, its the biggest one in east Europe, for few of us was boring and for few was fun!

later night, last night was the best, was rock, until the sun rise, we meet our friends (ewa) friends, more locals, bar to bar, dance to dance until maybe 5 morning, we were have to also leave Gdansk to Katowice at 6:30 and head back to Israel.

Twice in Poland, part 1; why Poland?

Do you know how was my flight to Poland? If not read my post up in wizzair


20150511_101031Two breakfast meals &  Two coffees with an ice-cream, sitting in some restaurant at the Jewish quarter in Krakow. That's my way how to start a new day.. This day I'm going to spend with my friend.. After the short walk in Old town we decided to sit, have a beer, chill and feel the great atmosphere around us..


When was your first time in Krakow?
"A long time ago, early 2014 (January), when I had the first semester break and holidays from my studies in Israel.
Why Poland? The main reason was to visit my friend Joe which I met at my Haifa pub crawls in Israel. Since this time we became a good friends and with time I also met his polish girlfriend which came from time to time with him to Israel. This time is my turn and I'm heading to Poland with him.

The first day of our journey to Poland is here. After the long night spent at the pubs we woke-up on time 🙂

We took  the bus at 7:40 heading to the south to Zakopane -> city in the Tatra mountains, by bus it took app. 2.5 hours, and when we arrived we had to take other minibus to get to our starting point.
Our trail included two lakes; MORSKIE OKO and CZARNY STAW.

In the first part u have 2 options; to walk in the asphalt app. (1.5 hour) or to take a horse taxi (20 mins), in my opinion just to walk would make us easily tired and on the other hand to take just the horse taxi would be too expensive.

What we did? On the first way we choose to walk and on the way back we took a horse taxi and enjoyed view around us.


The second part of our trip was spend by the real hiking from the lake to the other one. The way was filled by the snow and we literally hiked in it.

To be honest none of us wasn't ready for something like that but at the end it was fun and big experience. To look after on the way we passed we just laughed and were thinking how to get back but we did and had a beer 🙂

My advice: If you are planning a trip to Zakopane, stay at least 1 night, the city, night life and nature can bring you a lot of fun and in just one day is impossible to see and enjoy it all! Stay and have a fun! 🙂



In Krakow: there are a few "milk bars" restaurants and it's concept is coming already since the Soviet union, and they just kept it, it's cheap, fast and good food 🙂 Search for them in the old city!

As usual we like to eat and to try new stuff so after eating we went to the underground museum which is worth to visit.. U get to know the mid-devil Krakow how was..

Later night we went to the pubs and had a fun! 🙂

Later night around 2:30 I asked Joe's girlfriend to order for me a taxi to go to the bus central station..

In the next post you can see what happened!
