With Dagna and Miriam - just before leaving to Ostrava
With Dagna and Miriam – just before leaving to Ostrava

The rule that you need to invest in time when you want to get to know each other better has been confirmed again. I planned to stay there only one day, but I decided to prolong it becasue I could see that we slowly staretd to like each other and the only thing we still need is time. We’ve talked a lot, I used to make shopping from time to time at Miriam – two-and-half-years-old daughter of Dagna and Dominik that have hosted me that time. Their home gave me a lot of peace and safety. And this fragrant bedclothes – Agata was right when she said that home is where the fresh bedclothes are. My stuff (including my sleeping bag) already started to have the smell of the journey – this very specific smell of things that stay stuffed inside a backpack (or in the bike bags in my case)  for weeks or months. Yes, fragrant bedclothes – this is really something!

The first evening Dagna backed delicious pumpkin cake, so I baked my famous carrot cookies the next day. And Dominik prepared filled chocolates by himself. I have to say that I will remember Czyzowice with amazign food, kids and a lot of joy. And Dominik says that home is where your family is. It means also a place for him, but only a place, where the family is.

Ps. Agatka asked me recently if I’m ready for the Czech Republic. Not that I meant someting, but well.. I guess I am ready 😉 Thanks Dominik for getting me dressed in the knight’s armour – it’s been something REALLY interesting!

Well.. Dominik dressed me fully in the knight's armour - the 1450's style. That has been quite an experience for me - I had enough after some 15 minutes :D
