I love mountains, they’re quite possibly my favourite geographical feature. Somehow, taking a stroll against the backdrop of sun-drenched alpine scenery always seems to brighten my day.
That’s why I’m here in Zakopane, in the foothills of the Polish Tatras. I’m hoping to do some hiking, but haven’t got round to it yet due to disorganisation on my part. I pre-booked accommodation at the last minute as I would be arriving quite late and didn’t want to be roaming dark streets looking for a place to stay. As a result, my room last night wasn’t ideally situated. After much searching I’ve found a better place today: a pleasant private room on the outskirts of town, just minutes away from the start of the marked hiking trails.
I’ve got my walking boots, waterproofs, food, a map, a first aid kit and GPS. All I need now is for the weather to stay like it is today. Hope with me!
