A Surprise Visit

I came to Hel by accident. Waiting for a bus from Krokowa to Wejherowa, early on Sunday morning, the bus for Hel just happened to arrive first. The sun was beginning to go into overdrive and suddenly, a day at the seaside became a much more attractive option then visiting a town. And look at all the places we would pass through en route! Husband's reminder that we had planned to visit Hel later in the week with friends was dismissed. The bus for Hel had arrived, we were meant to go to Hel and that was all there was to it. We anticipated an interesting Sunday and believe me that was exactly what we got.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:As pretty as a picture
  • Cons:Probably a better place to visit off-season
  • In a nutshell:'This could be heaven or this could be hell'.

    This place was cool. I visit a week before the tourist season began, and I agree that it is better. It's not as crowded.
    That's cool how you didn't plan to go there, and just got on the bus. I've done that before too. Those kinds of adventures are always fun.

    AC/DC was right, "Hell, Aint A Bad Place To Be"

    A cat seeking refuge in a megelithic stone shelter?? I had to laugh when I saw your picture. Again a great page!
