The people in front of us had their chairs right back on our laps. Like a famous British monarch, "we were not amused". However, the journey didn't start too badly. It was quite stuffy on the coach but once we got moving we were quite excited about what lay ahead and began reading, eating haribo and chatting.

Just as the journey was starting to get a little uncomfortable we stopped for a well needed break. Frankfurt an der Oder was the service station and it was quite interesting to note that it was the former border control between Poland and Germany (now closed due to both countries being in the European Union). We had absolutely no idea how much time we had on this break (since the driver was also Polish and spoke only in Polish!) but our new found heroin informed us it was a 20 minute break. We took the chance to exchange up a bit of money in to Zloty (note: not all money. we only wanted enough so that if we stopped again - which we did do - and we needed local currency, we had some available)

Back on our way again and we decided to get some sleep. This was rather difficult as we stopped for a break every 3 hours or so (or if there were actual stops, sometimes shorter than that). However, before we knew it the sun was waking up over Poland.

A few changes later and we arrived (hot, smelly and tired) at Krakow bus station.
