Krakow, while not the official capital of Poland, might as well be the heart of the country. Every year tourists flock to its medieval streets in search of ancient legends and modern temptations: hearty Polish food, neverending parties and cheap pints of beer.
How’s it going? I’m currently hailing from Paraty, two weeks into my travel/exchange life in Brazil, and even though I’m profusely mosquito-bitten, sunburnt and tired, I am happy. It’s a strange feeling, being this happy – while I’m usually not downright miserable anywhere else either, here I find myself to be a lot more relaxed and carefree. It’s truly the backpacking spirit that has taken over me again; it’s a feeling I’ve missed, and one that I’ve welcomed back with an open mind.

You totally should, by the way. It’s awesome.
