Since I had booked an extra day in Krakow because I loved it so much, I thought it was probably best to move on or I would never leave. So I got the train to Zilina in Slovakia. I planned to arrive early to go to the tourist info and find a place to sleep but with massive train delays I was really late arriving. The tourist info could not be found anyway so I wandered round hoping to find something that wasn’t a hotel. Eventually I did bump into a map of hostels at another tourist info, wrote down directions, reached the place as it was getting dark, managed to book a night at the hostel speaking to a man who knew nothing of English and fell into bed. Whew. I thought I was going to have to sleeping bag it up at the train station.
I am now in Kosice, still Slovakia for those unaware, very pretty. Hoping to take a free walking tour tomorrow to suss out the history of those gorgeous buildings they have.
