25th July – Firlej

25 Jul

As it was Marjools birthday on 23rd July we decided to find somewhere to eat out in the evening. It was a remote rural area, but on the back roads from the A4 (E40) to Mielec somewhere near Przeclaw we found a really friendly little place. it was down a little alley at the side of a house and so nearly missed it. Just before we got there we saw another telegraph pole with a baby stork in a nest. The tops of the poles have special cages on them to give the birds a place to nest.

 

Just when we thought that we would have to park by the side of the road for the night …. a welcome sign!

Although the place was empty when we arrived and decided to sleep there (in the camper), it soon filled up with locals and we enjoyed a few drinks (beer £1.00 for 500ml). Chicken chips and salad, two drinks and coffee was £7.00. Who says I don’t spoil Marjool! The owner and staff were really nice and the sweet girl behind the bar who spoke english looked after us really well. I hope she keeps in touch. The evening was rounded off in our favorite way with a bit of Karaoke!?

 

24th July

 

Headed on to a town called Sandomierez which had a pretty market square.

 

 

From there the weather changed for the worse and the skies filled with black storm clouds. We drove on some really rutted roads through the storm and had to pull over a couple of times and find side roads. The other traffic did not slow down and people were still overtaking in the opposite direction. Our wide tyres seem to follow the ruts and so we decided to wait it out until the heaviest downpours were over. Stopped for the night at a little lake by route 19 at a place called Firlej, where we found that we were within range of someone’s unlocked wifi. Its always worth a try!
