A Funnicular Kinda Day

Today we escaped the city & headed for the mountains. Thankfully the weather held off today & the only real rain fell when we were on the bus heading back to the city.

As we made our way to the Tatra mountains we stopped at a little wooden village called Chocholow. We went into the cottage of a wood carver, interesting little set up.


When we arrived in Zakopane we took a flying trip past the ski jump I got a glimpse of it, amazing is the only word but Mum on the other side of the bus missed it (we won't go on about the tour not the best). The part of Zakopane we saw was very touristy, a lot of stalls selling the same dare I say it junk. Would have been interesting to see a little more of this town, the side away from the market stalls, never mind. We caught the Funnicular to the top of Mt Gubalowka some 1,100 in elevation to check the view of the Tatras Mountains. Stunning, amazing, beautiful is the only way to describe it. We wandered around here for an hour or so, browsed a few shops & brought an ice cream before piling back into the bus back to the city.
