Our flight and road trip to Miedzybrodzie Bialskie went very smoothly. Ben, Aca’s Dad took us to Luton Airport for our flights to Katowice. We were met at the airport by Kasia for our road journey to Miedzybrodzie Bialskie.

On arrival we were met by the host families and were taken to their home for a short rest before a BBQ at Krzysztof Drozdzik’s garden at 4.30pm. After the first BBQ it was back to our hosts for a well-earned rest.

Saturday was our trip to Zakopane where we climbed up the mountain path to a cave entrance, which we entered and it lead all the way through the mountain. Time for a rest and refreshments as it was hot work!! Then for the walk back to our coach for our journey back to the host families.

Sunday, a lazy morning then a trip to Bielsko Biala mainly for shopping, then back to the host of our second BBQ at Natalia Harat’s garden.

Monday was the tour of the Hydro Electric plant. A boat trip around the lake and then to the ‘Go Ape’ rope park, this was really enjoyed.

In the evening it was my hosts, Marciek & Sylvia to host a BBQ. Kacper, their son actually did the cooking.

Tuesday we visited Krakow, a visit to the museum and free-time to explore Krakow.

Wednesday was the day for pedal boating on the lake before our trip home.

My thanks to Kasia and Stan for organising this visit and to all the hosts who looked after our students. Thanks also to everyone else who put time and effort into making our visit so wonderful and memorable.

A special thank you to my hosts Maciak, Sylvia and Kacper for looking after me so well and for the late night discussions we had on twinning events between Miedzybrodzie Bialskie and Bicester. Some funny but always interesting to know what happens in other circles.
