Day 7 Alan & I explore Zakopane

While a small number of our group decided to do the Mount Giewont Walk and an even smaller number took on the challenge of climbing to the top of the Mount, Alan & I and a number of other people decided to opt out of the organised walk and do our own thing.
Alan and I decided that we would explore Zakopane. We visited the Ski Jumps, did a walk skirting the national park, visited the market, took the Fenicular to the top of Gubalowka where we had lunch. We then walked along the top of Gubalowka to the chair lift and decended the mountain experiencing the most peaceful and quiet decent while sitting in the chair lift, from here we were able to see the whole valley floor and the mountain peaks. When we arrived back at our hotel we noted that we had actually walked for longer than we would have done had we gone on the walk.
