From a disappointment follows a great, positive surprise. Maybe not always but this time yes.
I had expected a visitor from back home, but due to some very bad karma or something, it was already a second time there were some obstacles that prevented the trip. So, on Thursday I was in a situation that there's a weekend coming with no plans – but got to do something!
My first ideas were Prague, Berlin or Dresden, but no matter how close they may look on the map, using public transportation it is not that simple to reach those cities from Wroclaw. If I was on vacation and time wouldn’t be the scarce resource, there would be no worries. But when trying to fit full working day and few hours of travelling into Friday, and day of sightseeing, travelling and some preparing for the week to come into Sunday, weekend starts to look more like a cutover plan than relaxing chill out time :(
I asked help from my team, but it was not only my poor (=non-existent) Polish skills; there really are not quick and/or simple buses or trains to those cities with schedules suitable for weekend away. Once again seems that I should get a car, but self-protecting instinct still says no...
