I can't remember the last time I went to Krakow just to visit and enjoy the city. It's not too far of a drive from home, but I don't remember even seeing some of the most famous sights in Krakow.
Some friends from the States came to stay with us for a couple of days before heading to their English Camp on the other side of Czech. When they mentioned they would love to see Krakow, I was thrilled when Mom got excited about the idea and we made plans to take a trip there the next day. I finally got to see the city on a beautiful summer day and enjoy it without any other agenda (like an airport run, or passport renewal, etc).
It could not have been a more perfect day to stroll across plazas, into gardens and down cobblestone roads.
P.S. Thankfully, the flu was only a 24-hour one, so I felt fine again in Krakow. Thank you Lord!
