Vera and I being such nice people, being friendly, polite and thankful certainly paid us back during our Poland trip. We had not booked any accommodation ahead so often had to try and find something later in the day.
After our night in depressing Frankfurt/Oder and getting a parking ticket in Szczecin we ended up in a gorgeous little town (Kamieri Pomorski) near the water and found a lovely old hotel for the night.
We sat overlooking the water, watching the sun set having a Radler (beer and lemonade mix) which here in Europe is a great refreshing drink even for a normally non beer drinker like me.
Typical footpaths, luckily I wear sensible shoes, or boots in this case.
