As with many towns at this end of my tour I had no chance, or the language skills to pre-organise any meetings. So far my seat-of-the-pants apathetic optimism had always turned up trumps. Why not here too?
The answer came as soon as I rolled onto the drive of my earlier booked accommodation of Gościnny Domek where I was greeted by the wonderful Hanne like a long lost relative. As an anglophile she was happy to hear of my adventure and immediately volunteered to come with me to the council offices the following day. More than that, she even loaned me some Polish money so I could go to the nearby Apollo restaurant before it closed!
The following day we bagged the council and I bought Hanne some breakfast by way of thanks. Top job. Gościnny Domek is a wonderful place to stay if you are ever passing southern Poland.
Next stop Czech Republic and another try at CouchSurfing...
