I woke up this morning late, and at first I though any hope of leaving Krakow was gone. It was near eleven by the time I was showered and ready to think (as hard as it was) about what to do with the day. I had missed the free breakfast so I settled on starting my day with just an orange from my pack. I got to talking to two Brazilian guys and I told them I was thinking about heading to Prague today. They let me know that another guy, Tomas (from Denmark) was also trying to get there today. I wondered into the other room and found Thomas doing all the work on the computer of finding the train schedule for the day. It looked like we had about one hour till the next train left and it would take us most of the day to reach Prague. This was wonderful news, I wasn’t really in the mood to do anything other than sit on a train all day.
We made it to the train and as we bought our tickets the woman let told us to hurry because the train left in two minutes, damn the online schedule for being wrong. We shouldered our packs and set out on a run across the train station, barely making it before the doors closed. The afternoon was uneventful, just sitting on a train (with a couple of transfers) for roughly eight hours.
When I arrived at Prague, Thomas set off to meet some friends of his and I set out to find a hostel, which was only a few blocks away. About this point I realized that I hadn’t taken any pictures today and after settling I would have to find something photogenic so I don’t let you, my viewers, down. I got a comfy bed and set out to find something nice to photograph. I walked around for about an hour and took some cool pictures then just went back to the hostel for a beer and to listen to some other traveler play his violin. I went off to bed a little after midnight, with a sense of accomplishment for actually making it out of Poland.
