When I was inspecting my bike, I was surprised at how good the condition was after five full years of disuse. However, I noticed a funny grind in the rear tire that would probably need immediate attention. Nevertheless, I needed to get back to Krakow to meet my mom at the airport so I took off just after nine.
As I got onto the busy four-lane road I realized that the traffic wasn't that bad and I was going to have a smooth ride into Krakow. I gave a few load yells as I recalled the freedom and fun of cycling around in a faraway land. Although the road was pretty busy, it did not detract from the beautiful scenery or my dreams about the adventure to come. Before I knew it, I was pedaling up to Wawel Castle in oldtown Krakow and checking into the apartment I had reserved.
We headed out for a quick walk to familiarize ourselves with the city. We were able to pickup a used Rough Guide at a bookstore in town and sat down for dinner at a funny pub just off the square. Things were almost as I remembered from five years before and I was happy to have a few Polish beers in me. After a quick check of the email, we were off to bed.
