Because Wroclaw is dissected by a major river with many small islands in the middle, it is a city of bridges. When I went for a run, I tried to cross as many bridges as possible. I think I managed 18 bridge crossings on a 10k run. Here are just a few of the many bridges.
Notes from the Cape Posts
March and April are the best time of the year to visit Cape Town. It is still warm, but the wind starts to drop. And what better way to spend an evening than a picnic on the beach watching the sunset.
Here is some of the food from the steam-train stall in Wroc?aw. The choices were amazing. Low-carb delight for me (to be fair it was making up for all the yummy Polish carbs I was stuffing down my throat).
If you haven’t had real kielbasa, you haven’t had sausage. Its a smoked Polish pork sausage that is grilled. They are great on a braai, and almost even better as left-overs.
The Greeks would call this Souvlaki, the Indians would call this kebab, and the South African’s would call this sosatie. I don’t care what you call it, but you have to try it. These ones were huge and filling (I know, I had one for lunch).
And yes, there were some vegetarian options as well.
The town of Wroclaw is wonderful in the evening. There are loads of restaurants where you get brilliant Polish food, and in old-town there is also a bustling market area with the most excellent food stalls, and tables all over where you can sit and eat. In my nest post I’ll share some of the food (hint – I had food from the steam train on the left).
Epidaurus is mostly known for its beautiful theatre, but it was also a site for athletic games. Here is the is the stadium in which athletics events were held over 2300 years ago.
Just a lovely little town we drove though somewhere in the mountains of Greece.
Gorlit train station has been in many movies. In particular “The Book Thief” and “Alone in Berlin”. The art-deco building and period platforms are wonderful places to take pics (and the train service is excellent as well).
We saw these beautiful chairs sitting outside a hotel in Gorlitz, Germany. If there was a waiter around I certainly would have stopped for a relaxing G&T.
A fishing boat bobs quietly in the harbour, waiting to be taken out onto the sea.
The view of the wonderful city of Nafplio from the Fortress of Palamidi. In the middle you can see the Venetian Bourtzi Castle, and the coastline of the Penopolese peninsula in the distance. The city is the most wonderful place to wonder around and get lost in. It is full of little alleys, shops and restaurants. And if you follow the coastline there is a wonderful walk (wall run for me) along the side of the hill.
