POLSKI:
Wstalismy o 7 rano, a o 8 bylismy juz na drodze. Drugi dzien utknieci w tym samym miejscu. Gdy do 9:15 nic nie zlapalismy, poddalismy sie i zatrzymalismy nadjezdzajacy autokar. Mielismy dosc autostopa na jakis czas. Autobusami dotarlismy do Delf, ktore okazaly sie miec ruiny lepsze od Olimpii. Starozytne miasto, gdzie znajdowala sie slynna wyrocznia Delficka, usytuowane bylo na zboczu wzgorza. Rownie slynna jak wyrocznia delficka, jest rowniez zagadka Sfinksa - jaka to istota, ktora rano chodzi na czterech nogach, w poludnie na dwoch, a wieczorem na trzech? Muzeum bylo rowniez ciekawe. Spedzilismy w Delfach pare godzin, po czym udalismy sie w strone Lamii, a nastepnie Trikali. Wydalismy tamtego dnia sporo kasy na autobusy, ale musielismy odpoczac. Nie rozumiem, dlaczego Grecy nie chca brac na stopa? To, jak dotychczas, najtrudniejszy kraj w jakim bylam, do lapania okazji. Mamy tylko nadzieje, ze wyzej, na Balkanach, ze stopem bedzie troche latwiej. Z Trikali wzielismy kolejny autokar - do Kalambaki. Poprosilam kierowce, zeby nas wysadzil jeszcze przed miastem, przy polu namiotowym. Tym razem zdecydowalismy sie spac na campingu. Trzeba bylo w koncu wyprac siebie i rzeczy. Noc ponownie byla tak ciepla, ze nawet nie rozkladalismy namiotu. Po prostu rozlozylismy karimaty po drzewem.

ENGLISH:
We got up at 7am and already at 8 we were standing in the road. Second day stuck in the same place. When it was 9:15 and we still couldn`t catch anyone, we gave up and stopped a bus that was just coming towards us. We had enough of hitchhiking for a little while. By taking different coaches we got to Delphi, which we found out had better ruins than Olympia. The ancient city where the famous Delphic oracle had been found, was situated in a mountain slope. The Sphinx riddle is probably as famous as the Delphic oracle - What living thing in the morning walks on 4 legs, at noon on two, and in the evening on three of them? The museum was also quite interesting. We spent a couple of hours in Delphi, and then we headed towards Lamia, and afterwards - Trikala. We`d spent quite a lot of money on buses on that day, however we truly needed a break. I do not understand why don`t Greeks stop for hitchhikers? So far it`s the most difficult country for hitchhiking I have ever been to. We`re hoping that upper, in other Balkan countries, this is going to be easier. From Trikala we took another coach - towards Kalambaka. I asked the bus driver to drop us off before the town begins, near the camp site. We`d decided to sleep at a camping this time. We finally had to wash our clothes and ourselves. The night was again so warm that we wouldn`t even pitch the tent. We simply put our carrimats under a tree.
