Sorry, there still seems to be a problem with the photos but if you are seeing only empty boxes- click on the box and the photos will appear. It seems some people can and some can't see them.
After a few hectic days in Lodz most of the wedding guests had returned home. Stan and I had 5 days left before our flight so caught the night train south to Zakapane. In the winter it's a ski resort but in the summer months the town is a lively touristy spot and the surrounding mountains are beautiful, covered in pine forests with the odd Swiss style chalet dotted around on their flanks. A maze of paths lead up to the summits or for the less energetic there's no shortage of cable cars and ski lifts to take you to the top. We used both during our 4 days there.
The temperature was a scorching 34 degrees C during the day, it was hard to believe that it can drop as low as minus 30 degrees in December
we Thoroughly enjoyed our time here, it was a perfect chill-out time, and we've promised ourselves we will be back sometime in the winter to see the mountains covered in snow.
