Road to Tatras
Took two days, up and down increasing waves of valleys like ripples spreading out from the main range.
Didn't think about it being Sunday, as shops in Krakow centre were open, but everything in the countryside closed, but fortunately was able to negotiate some bread buns from a burger van to restock. Regardless of the day, every village has half a dozen lody shops (ice cream) doing a roaring trade.
Planned a wild camp which turned out excellent, apart from cloud cover, at the top of a short sweet 17% climb.
Second day was largely following river valleys so barely any gradient.
Including the touristy Dunajec gorge, where guides steer wooden rafts downstream and families stroll and cycle upstream.
Now I can see the jagged teeth of the High Tatras, calling me onward.

Zakopane.
Two days of hiking, with 1000m plus elevation gain each day, 35 miles total, rewarded by some spectacular views from the ridges of lakes, valleys, further peaks on the Slovak side, and miles out over the polish plains.
