[Blog #46] Revisiting Kraków | Thoughts | Photography

in travel •  7 months ago 

Heeeyho Readers! Revisiting photos from Kraków that I haven't had the chance to look until now.


On the last days of the Steem Fest 3 in Kraków the Steemians headed to Auschwitz, with the exeption of the great sexy Travel Feed crew and friends who decided to join me for a walking journey.

The day was quite warm the the sky clear and blue, which at the end of the day turned out to be my fatality, I'll explain in a moment. Our plans were simple, just walk, photograph, fly drones, have fun, eat, laugh, visit the Wawel Hill Complex and at the end catch the sunset by the river. Sometimes simple plans are the best, we had the crew, we had the friendship.

The Friendship

Meeting the guys who I interact everyday on the Steemverse felt as natural as meeting an old friend again, so natural and happy. I couldn't feel grateful enough for being able to live the life I had always dreamed about. To represent the friendship, be it close or timid ones, I would like to share this photograph os some friends hanging around by the lake on that lovely day.

Castles and Dragons

Being a lover of the series Game of Thrones and the whole medievel history I was just like in wonderland. If there's something that activates creativity, the vibe in Kraków is certainly one of them; trying to imagine how life was centuries ago is just something that blows my mind. The clothes, the music, the feasts, the walls and dragons... were there dragons? It would be awesome. Unfortnately the real ones were sleeping, but this one was still pretty angry at the tourists!

The city presents the architecture evolution throughout the centuries, isn't it cool to have the old walls still there while the city evolved around the old castles and churches? I think one would need more than some trebuchet to go over this.

Architectural Wonders

I won't flood you with pictures of buildings and domes, because they are everywhere in Kraków, one as beautiful as the other. As an angineer I ask myself... How? With all the modern technology it would be difficult enough to build these constructions. Yet, here they are, siting there for centuries.

The Sunset

Most of my sunset pictures failed miserably, but here's at least one by the Vistula river. I'll miss cycling on this exact bicycle lane.

See you next time Kraków

With a wave from the knight It was time to say good-bye to the amazing city of Kraków. After the photography adventure with the crew and friends I was already freezing the bones with the sun past gone. The freezing sensation kept on going and soon became a full body pain who turned out to be a fever and later a sore throat, putting be into bed on the last night of the SF3. Things that happen... and that made me realise that the Steemverse is simply amazing.

So glad we did bump into eachother on the streets and were able to go for a drink! You coming from so far and being so close, it would have been crazy if we hadn't met :D

Great post and I'm hoping your cycle adventures are going well too!

Wasn't it awesome? I'm just sorry that I was so getting sick that day, or else I'd interact much more =/ my whole body was shacking from the fever \o\

This was a great day indeed @mrprofessor! Funny to see that we've got almost the same pictures. You would think that we did walk together 🤣.

Good to hear you're in Austria already. Did you survive the swan battle?

·

I won the territory agains the Swan! But those dudes are agressive, I'll tel you!

I got the same pictures because I was just copying your better vision for photography ahahahhaa

·
·

You didn't bring a chain to hold off the swans from you?

Hehe professor, you got the same level of photographic vision, you're pics are great :)

·
·
·

AHAHhahahahaha that giff made me laugh loud! I swear I heard the animal around during the night, but I was to tired to bother.

Your side of the story feels cheerful and the images represent a very nice old city. I have seen some other reports and Krakow looked gloom. Shame I could not make it to the steemfest.

·

But but but next year you'll go, and bring the kids as well so we can play around! Or maybe I'll go for a visit there in the UK and we'll drink some tea with the Queen.

Lova ya
