POLSKI:
Rano ktos nam podrzucil obok namiotu skarpetki owiniete w gazete, co za chamstwo. Tak jak powiedzial moj przyjaciel: "niczego nie nalezy sie bac, tylko ludzi". Zgadzam sie absolutnie, choc z drugiej strony kto nam nie pomogl najwiecej, jak obcy ludzie? No coz, przypadki ekstemalne wszedzie sie zdarzaja.
Zauwazylam, ze na tym wyjezdzie zmienil mi sie nie tylko tryb zycia, ale takze cykl dnia. Szybko robie sie zmeczona, wstaje wczesnie. Marcin jednak jest lepszym rannym ptaszkiem ode mnie - tamtego dnia probowal mnie postawic na rowne nogi o... piatej. Ostatecznie zebralismy sie przed szosta. Gdzie ja bym w Polsce wstala o tej porze? Zapomnij!
Marcin ponownie spal na naszych plecakach (cwaniak, najpierw kaze mi wstawac wczesnie, a potem odsypia!:P), gdy ja zlapalam mlodziutkiego tirowca - Polaka. Zawiozl nas az do kraju i wysadzil w Jablonce. Jak na zlosc, gdy tylko przekroczylismy granice Polski, ludzie przestali sie zatrzymywac. A moze mysmy sie rozleniwili perpektywa dlugiej kapieli i nocy spedzonej we wlasnych lozkach? Dwoma PKSami dojechalismy do Krakowa, a stamtad wsiedlismy w pociag do domu. Rozmawialismy cala droge. Gdy wysiadalam na dworcu w Opolu, Marcin machal mi z okna pociagu. Jego czekala jeszcze godzina drogi do Wroclawia...
W ciagu 15 dni przejechalismy 8 krajow, 4 stolice, 5000 km, poznalismy dziesiatki nowych ludzi, mielismy tony dobrej zabawy, zrobilismy 1100 zdjec, i to wszystko w 80% autostopem! Ustalilismy, ze w lipcu uderzymy na Balkany. Polecimy w 1 strone do Aten, a stamtad objedziemy cala Grecje, zahaczymy o turecka Kapadocje i byc moze Istambul, a nastepnie udamy sie do reszty panstw balkanskich - Macedonii, Serbii, Chorwacji, Slowenii... Czy ktos chce sie przylaczyc?

ENGLISH:
In the morning somebody dropped next to our tent a pair of dirty socks wrapped in a newspaper, what a boorishness. A friend of mine told me: "We shouldn`t be afraid of anything but people". I agree with that absolutely, although from the other hand the random people helped us the most! Oh well, extreme cases happen everywhere. I`ve noticed that this trip has changed not only my life style, but also my daily routine. I started becoming tired quickly, and getting up early. Marcin though is a better early bird than me - on that day he was trying to make me get up at... 5 am. Eventually we moved our butts before 6. There is no way that I`d get up at that time in Poland! Forget it!
Marcin was sleeping on our backpacks again (what a slyboots, firstly he`s making me get up early, and then he sleeps off!:P), when I caught a pretty young Polish truck driver. He took us straight to our country and dropped us off in Jablonka. How ironic, as soon as we crossed the Polish borders, people stopped taking us. Or maybe we became too lazy when we started thinking of a long bath and a night spent in our own beds? We took 2 buses in order to get to Krakow, and from there we hopped on a train towards home. We were chatting for the whole journey time. When I was getting off at the railway station in Opole, Marcin was waving to me from the train. He still had one hour to get to Wroclaw...
Within 15 days we travelled through 8 countries, 4 capitals, 5000 km, met a bunch of new people, had tons of fun, took 1100 photos, 80% of it done by hitchhiking! We decided to see Balkans this summer. We`ll fly to Athens one way, and from there start hitchhiking all around Greece, we`ll go to see the Turkish Capadoccia and perhaps Istanbul, and then we`ll go and see the rest of the Balkan countries - Macedonia, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia... Anybody willing to join us?
