You know it's funny sometimes how the universe works... People come into our lives when we least expect it and this was the case last weekend.
It was pretty late in the day on Thursday and I was struggling to find a hostel. I came to visit this small Polish town that has a beautiful fortress in the downtown. I heard stories you could actually sleep inside of the fortress as they turned the barracks into a hostel but apparently that was many years ago 🙈
Realizing I had not eaten most of the day I headed to the nearest grocery store. A few minutes later when I came back out to my bike I met one of the nicest couples who were admiring my motorcycle. They told me about this weekend long motorcycle festival happening in their small village a few hours away which sounded super cool! Even if it was the opposite direction of where I was heading next it didn't matter quite so much because I don't travel with a plan just an idea of where I want to make it to eventually.
Marta and Jan helped me look all over town for a hostel or a hotel but not having any luck her dad was good enough to let me crash at his place and lock my motorcycle up in his garage.
The next day Jan and I headed out on our motorcycles to the trails making our way to his small village and having a blast on the bikes! We saw an old German electrical production damn as well as small river that used to be the border of Poland and Russia in it's day.
Honestly no matter where we travel to the people are the treasure. We had a seriously amazing weekend together full of laughs, love, and motorcycles 🏍️💨💖 The festival was fantastic with hundreds of different kinds of bikes showing up from all over the country. The band was playing, the beer was flowing, and the Polish sausages were barbequing 🍻
The town priest even came out and blessed all the motorcycles as we toured the town with our police escort eventually making a 25 mile loop around Mammoth Valley.
Such a cool experience that could have never be planned. Meeting so many great new friends and sharing such a great experience. This is what this life is all about 💕🏍️🤘
