We slept in a hotel 12 km from kraków airport that night.
Went for a pizza on the evening and worked out funds. Everything had been written down as we went, so that we could work out everything with ease. I spent £281.48. All in. That's it. It'll be less if I can get my currency exchanged back at a cheaper rate than todays.
Alarms were set for 4.30am.
Dropped lew at kraków airport at 5am, here's the sunrise.
He flew at 7am.
I drove over to katowice Airport, 60 miles away, and dropped the car off at 9am and flew home at 11.35am
So I was here from Monday at 7pm till Friday at 9am when I dropped the car.
So that's not even 5 days. 5 days would be 120 hours.
I was here 86 hours. And I only slept 18 of that.
So for less than £300 -
I knocked 3 things off my bucket list. 2 of which were free.
Fired a gun.
Visit a tripoint.
Drove 1063 miles through 5 countries. 3 of which were new. I drove in all 5.
Crossed over 18 borders, and 6 individual ones.
Drove on own, on right (and abroad) for first time. Twice.
Went to the highest points of 3 countries.
Did 2 in a day. Did 3 in 29 hours.
Climbed mountains; rysy and Sněžka. Rysy I'm particularly proud of, what a mountain.
Saw the differences of each country as you crossed a border, saw the rural parts of each one, saw the cities of Budapest, Bratislava and Katowice, plus so, many, towns. All different, all unique.
Went to 5 countries in a day.
Ate in 5 countries in a day.
Drove the full length of slovakia north to south in one day, and the full length of the Czech Republic south to North on another.
Used 4 currencies.
I even had the weekend to recover when I got back.
My senses have been engorged.
