Krakow, Poland

The bus was supposed to arrive in Krakow at 2:30 a.m. Around 1:30 a.m. the bus stopped in the side of the highway. We asked if we were in Krakow. The drivers didn't speak English and said nodded yes. We were 11 kilometers south of the town. It was freezing, so Tom gave me all of his dirty clothes to put on, and we started walking. After two kilometers of walking, Tom flagged down a cab that happened to be passing by. Saved.

Prague, Czech Republic
