Over the weekend we traveled to Zakopane, a popular Polish resort town, situated two hours from Krakow, in the shadow of the Tatra mountain range. As we drove deeper into the Polish countryside, I was exposed to a slower pace of life. It was a change from the hectic city life that I had been a part of and was refreshing to take in the simplicity of country life. The town itself was very quaint and reminded me of a small New England town. The leaves were in the middle of their fiery transformation and littered the cobblestone streets with color. After getting some nourishment we climbed to the top of one of the lower peaks of the Tatras.

Beginning our ascend...

Taking a much needed break.

At the top!

There were small patches of snow on the slope and I won the award hands down for taking the most spills.
