Project - Poland

Post by xphoenix0 »

As Always starts in the pub - myself and Lukasz lets go to Poland we said, this has now become a project.

The Tatra's are beautiful, I have been before and so has Lukasz, Zakopane has a full summer and winter season, we will return for sure.

Day one Travel to Zakopane - National news Zakopane has huge amounts of snow avalanche risk (3) full winter mountaineering.

Day two Giewont 1895m - No visibility 3ft deep powder 10mile 1037m

Day three Kasprowy Wierch 1987m - No Visibility 12mile 1,329m

Day four Swinica 2301m with breath-taking views 7miles 600m

Day five Krakow - Cherry vodka.

Pictures (WARNING MOUNTAINEERING PORN :D )

So the correct way of drinking Cherry Vodka is:
1. Get a whisky glass
2. Fill 30% of glass with with crushed ice (cube ice will suffice - but crushed better)
3. Add 2 slices of lemon
4. Add 50ml (or more) of Cherry Vodka
5. ... and most importantly – a splash of love (yeah, a Cyberpunk reference, couldn't stop myself)
6. Sip slowly and enjoy the taste!

Warning: Do NOT get drunk on this - hangover is really, really bad! Just have a few!


* What John forgot to add is on the way to "Kasprowy Wierch" we bagged Nosal (1206), then Boczan (1224m). Also, on the way to Swinica we went through "Beskid" (2012m) and "Skrajna Turnia" (2097m).

Overall, an awesome trip.. just a shame we got such a massive dump of snow the first few days (made the avalanche risk very real). Also, not much of paths anywhere so we had to make our own (damn hard in deep snow).

Top excursion and a top set of pictures there lads :-D

I also like the fact that Polish for avalanches is 'lawinima' (if I've typed that correctly)
