Portugal - 5 October - 15 October 2011

Well after spending some time in Berlin, where is the next logical place to go to? Well, perhaps Sweden or something, but to be honest Brett and I were nackered and tired of travelling and agreed that what we needed was a week of doing nothing but chilling on a nice beach, swimming and drinking beer all day long. So we booked a flight to Portugal! Now if you have been reading this blog since the beginning I mentioned that our old Contiki bus driver was from Portugal, and he couldn't stop raving about how awesome it is. So that was the main reason we went - he should be a salesman.

Krakow, Poland - 27 September - 1 October 2011

A day’s travel by bus and train from Prague brought us to Krakow (can be pronounced Krakov), and we hiked a few kilometres to our hostel. We soon found that this would be the best hostel we had been to in the whole of Europe and UK combined. The three of us had a six person dorm to ourselves for 3 of the 4 nights we were there, and it was well decorated – each dorm with a theme such as Japanese or African. Every morning the staff cooked us a great continental breakfast with the best apple pancake things – yum.
