Last night’s train journey was eventful, though nearly didn’t happen!
We got an uber to the train station to ensure we arrived in plenty of time as we were unable to book any trains online, therefore we just arrived at the station to book.
We found out where we needed to book the train we needed and proceeded there. Once we arrived, we waited in line for 10-15 minutes and then the window closed for 20 minutes! Our train was at 17:30 and the window was closed until 16:50, so time was of the essence.
We waited for the window to open, first in line, and once she arrived she said we have to pay with cash!
We then had to get cash out, loosing our place in line.
Once we got cash, we got back to the window but there was no way we were going to be able to get to the front of the queue in time for the train but luckily one lovely lady let us go in front of her and we managed to book the train at 17:10 and get to the platform to board the train!
Our first impressions of the train were that it remind us of Harry Potter! There were cabins with 3 beds (one folded away) and it looked very similar to the films!
The train wasn’t bad, other than we had to keep waking up for border controls. The beds weren’t too uncomfortable. We arrived in Warsaw at 9:20. We then had a train at 9:45 to Krakow which took to hours. It was apparently a ‘premium’ train. It was lovely with free tea, coffee and water, too!
When we arrived in Krakow, it wasn’t the best weather, but it was very warm!
We got to the hostel, showered and got settled and then went out for some lunch after meeting back up with Josh!
We had a lovely pizza, plus 2 odd beers! One green beer (9%!) and one very sweet and to be honest, not very nice, ginger beer (8%!).
We then went for a wonder around Krakow, finding castles and cathedrals, cool views, parks and a market very similar to German markets!
