We arrived at Auschwitz, booked our tickets and opted for a guide. And so the tour commenced..... There really are no words for what we learnt from our time there. The photos below tell a little of the happenings in the camp, but one has to experience it for themselves.
The journey back to Krakow was sombre, and even our dinner was spent mostly in thought and silence. After filling our bellies, we headed to a sports bar to watch some football and partake of a few drinks. Our spirits lifted again after quite a harrowing day, as a local band took the stage after the football had finished. They were amazing. There choice of song was a little cheesy and included Simply Red, but they performed with great energy and soon had the place bopping. We shrugged off our lethargy and decided to Live And Let Live, agreeing that we're only young once. After several songs, several drinks and shots of Tabasco, we called it and night. Or should I say morning. 3am in the morning! Auschwitz was harrowing but also made us realise the importance of living life to the full.
