Day by day it’s getting harder for me to write about my experience in Zakopane and the Polish Tatars mountains. But at this moment 13-6-2016 11:28 Am, I’m sitting at nice Cafe, at the third floor enjoying each moment of the view of the mountains, well some i can’t see…it’s a foggy day.
Almost one month I’m away from home, Haifa, Israel. A quick brief what i had done so far and then in other posts will write more details about it.
15-5-2016 quick and short trip Slovakia focusing at the Slovak Tatras mountains.
18-5-2016 i head off to Zakopane in south Poland to volunteer at a hostel.
3-6-2016 until 7-6-2016 quick trip to Berlin from Zakopane visiting friends.
23-6-2016 i will pick up a group from back home to guide them in Slovakia (off-road) with travel agency Jeep and Travel.
OK now lets back to talk a bit about this lovely village. Zakopane, in south Poland have a unique mixture that i was looking for, Nightlife and Nature. Quite often when i travel i like to find spot and to have these 2 things Nightlife and Nature.
Nightlife here very mixed and interesting, many places to hangout to grab a beer and to dance, all week! Many different styles, hard to pick the most one i liked, but i will go to say “Europejska”. Keep calm and wait to my post later about nightlife in Zakopane.
Nature, I’m not used to that much to surrounded by mountains, green and high trees. Just 2 minutes walk from the hostel i volunteer i can start a nice hike in the polish Tatras mountains, so far i reached 4 peaks and I’m looking forward to more, i want to reach the highest one but doesn’t look i could do it now! I’m kind started to know what i want, to be in the nature, to hike and to reach mountain peaks in the world, I’m happy that I’m here because for beginner its perfect and good start. Again, keep calm and wait to other post in the future about the Hiking in the polish Tatras mountains.
I end up to be in Zakopane, because after the first group i had until i will have the second group to guide in Slovakia, plenty of free time, a bit more than one month, i made some search how to spend my time until i found volunteering at a hostel in Zakopane, and I’m happy to end up in Zakopane, i could say i feel home.
My local experience is great here, one of my things i like, its to watch people while I’m at a bar, at cafe or also while walking, i got to know how they dance, how they hangout, what they like to eat and so on, and it’s because most of the tourist here are local tourists from the Poland, so in that way you will you will
feel the local vibe to experience it.
to be traveler, travel blogger and travel guide looks it’s not easy, but i will try my best to share with you my experience in writing. Oh also forgot to tell you, to add what i mention i also write handwriting diary, and i like to travel and live the moment without writing or taking pics.
More details and information will come later in different posts here in my blog, anyway i would like to follow me on Facebook where I’m more active, also you can find me on instagram and twitter.
