Krakow Country Bike Tour

It’s been such a wet and horrible day here in Krakow that I came very close to cancelling this bike tour. I remembered though that the primary reason I was here in Europe was to do some bike tours since I love them so much and it wasn’t cold (20c) so getting a little wet was not going to faze me. After 3 days and 20,000km I wasn’t chucking it in that easily.

Very glad I didn’t. Even though I got completely soaked to the bone, it didn’t rain the entire ride and we dried out a bit from time to time. We were rewarded with the most serene and dreamy forest ride beyond my wildest dreams it was just beautiful. If it had been dry it wouldn’t have looked anywhere near as amazing.

We stopped at a monastery at the half way point where we had coffee. I had two, a standard machine made coffee (average) plus a fantastic french press coffee, the beans taken from an Ethiopian monastery run plantation. Way way better than I was expecting.

Thanks Mike, this was a great tour ! – You can book this same tour here at Cruising Krakow

Final Dinner in Krakow

Tonight I went to Fabryka Pizzy for some Italian. I had the most spectacular Beetroot & Salami risotto. It would have to be up there with the best risotto I’ve ever tasted. Washed down with a glass of house red and a bottle of sparking mineral water for the unbelievable price of AUD13

After that, went for a final wander around the streets to soak up the atmosphere, grabbed a gelato and walked back to the apartment. The chocolate was a chocolate plumb flavour. Lovely
