    El barco / The Boat

    Favorite thing: The boat design is interesting because it can be disassembled into five pieces like a "Lego"
    The boat goes down the river to Szczawanica and then they have to take it up to the site of origin and therefore to upload by the river would be long and cumbersome and by road it would be complicated due to the dimensions the dimensions it has , so they they use five elongated crates of flat bottom, that they put together using tables and some rope
    On this way itmay fit up to 15 people and when they remove the parts it can be easily transported by road
    Another curiosity is that in the front they put pine branches in order not to get water in the boat

    El diseño del bote es curioso ya que se desmonta en cinco piezas como si fuera de "Lego"
    El bote baja por el río hasta Szczawanica y hay que volver a subirlo al sitio de origen y por tanto
    subirlo por el río sería largo y engorroso y por carretera sería complicado por las dimensiones que tiene , así que lo que hacen es juntar cinco cajones alargados , de fondo plano , que los unen con tablas y alguna cuerda
    Así caben más de 15 personas y cuando se desmonta las piezas pueden ser transportadas fácilmente por carretera
    Otra curiosidad es que en la parte de adelante ponen ramas de pino que consiguen que no entre el agua en el bote

    El Barquero / The Boatman

    Favorite thing: The Boatmen's Association organize the trips.
    All boatmen are dressed in their local costumes , with hat, vest and the pole that they use to navigate
    The boat is handled by two boatmen, one gets ahead and although at times he helps to navigate, its main mission is to make the trip pleasant, explain to you where you go, tell stories ... The boatman of our trip spoke perfect "Polish" but nonetheless made us ​​the trip very enjoyable
    The boatman that was behind said nothing during all the time but he was the real "hard worker"

    La asociación de Barqueros es la que organiza los viajes .
    Todos los barqueros van vestidos con su traje regional gorro , chaleco y con la pértiga que utilizan para navegar
    La barca la manejan dos barqueros , uno se pone adelante y aunque en algunos momentos ayuda a navegar , su principal misión es hacerte el viaje agradable , explicarte por donde vas , contar anecdotas ... El barquero de nuestro viaje hablaba en perfecto "Polaco" pero así y todo nos hizo el viaje muy agradable
    El que iba detrás no abrió la boca y era el verdadero "currante"

    Szczawnica : Me On The Palenica Hill

    Fondest memory: Here's a photo of me on The Palenica Hill ! It's a theme park up there, with not many people as it was too early in the morning.
    Asked somebody to take my photo for the memory...
    Marek was waiting for me downhill & I went up here by the hanging chair, excellent experience & excellent views all around on The Palenica Hill !

    Me In Szczawnica...

    Me in Szczawnica

    Fondest memory: That's me in the photo taken by Marek. A memory for me being in Szczawnica.
    The photo was taken just opposite The Bus Station; There's the green area filled with green trees.
    It could be an excellent jogging area with paths.
