It’s been a while since my last post. It’s been quite hectic at work and it’s gonna be a lot more hectic during the spring since the Covid-19 seems to be hitting hard here in Nordic countries too. But I guess everybody’s already tired of talking about it, so I’ll show you some pictures from my latest trip. We’re isolated here at the moment, so no traveling for a while.
Last summer I bought flights to Krakow on a whim. I didn’t know much about the city before I went there, I just wanted to wander around the city and see a few attractions. I walked 15-25 km’s a day, didn’t have too many plans, ate a LOT, sat in the park reading books and having my morning coffee… And I totally fell in love with the place! It was beautiful, clean, easy to walk around, cheap, public transport was easy to use, and it was super hot. There was some kind of heat wave just when I traveled there, less heat would’ve been fine for me. But hey, I’m Finnish.
I have so many pictures from my trip that I need to leave the food and Auschwitz-Birkenau out of this post and write about those later. This is definitely not a travel guide since I was just walking around and enjoying the views, but maybe these pictures will make you dream of traveling to Poland. I can certainly recommend it ❤
STATUES AND STREET ART
My favorite places were the cemeteries, especially the New Jewish Cemetary. Morning walk in the quiet cemetery was a breathtaking experience. There’s so much to see in this beautiful city and I hope I’ll be able to go back soon(ish). I spent there 8 days and stayed in a dorm room for 6 females. The hostel was called Bubble Hostel Krakow and it’s definitely praiseworthy. It’s clean, the location is perfect (right next to the old town, Stare Miastro, and the Planty Park which encircles the Stare Miasto) and the staff if helpful and super friendly. The flights and the room cost me around 200 euros, so it certainly was a budget holiday.
At the moment, no matter how much we’d love to travel and meet up with friends and go to the yoga classes, now is not the right time to have fun around the city. Watch the video below if you don’t know why. Now you can practice yoga at home, read books, clean your house or if you’re a nurse, work like hell!
