We were planning to reach Solec Kujawski crossing these woods, but somwhere on the way we got lost.

All Saints' Day in Poland is spectacular. No grave is left without being decorated with a candle.
It's quite a sight visiting the Polish cemetaries on All Saints' Day. Millions of candles glow that day, and for a couple of days after that as well.
Nicolas Copernicus us one of the prides of the Polish. He was born in Torun.

A not very encouraging climate to ride around on a motorcycle.
"It seems we had few setbacks in our planning..."
"Now where did I leave the motorcycle?"
Many people tell us: "You came in the worst time to travel Poland!". Maybe you can tell we don't think so. We wouldn't have wanted to miss this adventure.
At least here they warn you... (In Spanish, "Roban" means "they steal")
Castle of Cracow.
The old salt mine of Wieliczka is more than 320 metres deep and has more than 300 km of tunnels. Its main attraction are the sculptures carved into the salt.
A complete chapel carved into the salt, in the salt mine of Wieliczka.

Sitting in a "milk bar" with our close friend Mac, whose is circumnavigating the surface of the earth. He's a true adventurer and an amazing person. Check out his adventure at
Basilica of Cracow. Every hour, a trumpet player starts to play a melody from one of its towers, and abruptly stops in the middle, in memory of the trumpet player that was assasinated while he was announcing a mongol attack with his instrument.
Market place, Cracow.
