31.07.2017 – DIRECTION: SOPOT

.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN OVER 10 YEARS, WE WILL BE IN SOPOT. WE ARE GOING TO A SMALL FAMILY REUNION AND BY THE WAY, WE ARE GOING TO VISIT A FEW PLACES.

AFTER CARRYING OUT THE CALCULATION, WE DECIDED TO USE THE POLISH STATE RAILWAYS (PKP) WE DO NOT LIKE MUCH. OUR CAR IN TERMS OF THE PRICE IS COMING OUT SIMILARLY (INCLUDING FUEL AND HIGHWAY TOLLS PRICES), BUT THE RIDE IS MUCH LONGER, NOT TO MENTION LATER PARKING PROBLEMS.

RAIL IN OUR CASE IS A 33% DISCOUNT FOR SENIORS AND ONLY, THEREFORE, THIS RIDE IS PROFITABLE.

THE TRAIN ARRIVED IN KATOWICE AND THEN TO SOPOT ON TIME. PLEASANT AND HASSLE-FREE DRIVING. IN THE TICKET PRICE OF THE SECOND-CLASS (132.30 PLN) THERE IS DRINK. UNFORTUNATELY, WE WERE COMPLETELY SURPRISED BY THE LACK OF WI-FI IN THIS CLASS OF TRAIN.

HAVING BEEN PROVIDED WITH SLEEPING AT THE FRIENDS’ PLACE IN GDYNIA ORLOWO, IMMEDIATELY AFTER UNPACKING WE JUMPED TO THE NEARBY STORES TO MAKE THE NECESSARY FOOD PURCHASES.

ORLOWO IS NOT CHEAP. IN THE EVENING ON ZWYCIESTWA st. ONE WILL FIND TWO SLIGHTLY-EXPENSIVE GROCERY STORES OPEN UNTIL THE MIDNIGHT, AND AT THE “KLIF” SHOPPING CENTRE, THE “PIOTR I PAWEL” NETWORK IS SCARING WITH PRICES UP TO THE 22nd.
IT’S BEST TO SHOP IN LIDL AT THE SKM STOP “SOPOT – KAMIENNY POTOK

THE ENTRANCE TO THE PIER IN SOPOT WAS OUR FAMILY GATHERING POINT FOR TODAY.

SOPOT – THIS BEACH BAR HAS BECOME OUR FAMILY MEETING PLACE

.

WE USED THE SKM COMMUTER TRAIN BECAUSE IT IS THE FASTEST AND THE BEST LINK IN THE TRI-CITY. ESPECIALLY IF YOU LIVE CLOSE TO ANY STATION. TICKETS CAN BE PURCHASED IN A NUMBER OF WAYS.  IN: CHECKOUT, VENDING MACHINE, FIRST TRAIN CAR OR INTERNET VIA SKYCASH APPLICATION. DO NOT FORGET THAT WHEN YOU ARE 60, YOU PAY MUCH LESS.

THE TICKET PRICE FOR THE SKM TRAIN RUNNING IN THE TRI-CITY DEPENDS ON THE LENGTH OF THE ROUTE. THERE ARE VARIOUS DISCOUNTS: FOR STUDENTS, DISABLES, PENSIONERS, FOR THE ELDERLY. THERE ARE ALSO ONE OR TWO-DAY TICKETS. WHEN YOU BUYING A TICKET, YOU SHOULD CHECK WHETHER THERE IS ANY DISCOUNT APPLYING. THE TICKET IS BEING VALIDATED IN THE TICKET PUNCH BEFORE THE ENTRANCE TO THE TRAIN. YOU CAN ALSO ALWAYS BUY A TICKET FROM THE CONDUCTOR IN THE FIRST TRAIN CAR OR VIA THE SKYCASH APP.

BUYING A SENIOR TICKET IN THE VENDING MACHINE AT THE TRAIN STATION IS A WASTE OF TIME. THE MACHINE DOES NOT HAVE A DISCOUNT OPTION FOR THE SENIOR CITIZENS. OTHER, SIMILAR TICKETS CANNOT BE USED WITHOUT PROPER ID. DO NOT GET TIRED. BUY IT FROM THE CONDUCTOR.

SOPOT AT THIS TIME OF YEAR IS POLISH LAS VEGAS. PRICES OF EVERYTHING ARE FALLING OFF THE OUTER SPACE AND ARE LEVITATING A BIT ABOVE OUR WALLETS. THOSE WHOSE PURSE IS NOT FAT ENOUGH MAY HAVE A PROBLEM HERE WITH JOYFUL HOLIDAYS.

UNINTERRUPTED CROWDS OVERFLOWING THE MONCIAK MAKE IT DIFFICULT TO FIND A REASONABLE PLACE TO EAT FISH WITHOUT TAKING OUT A BANK LOAN.

WE FIND ONLY ONE SUCH PLACE. RIGHT NEXT TO THE HUGE “MOLO” SIGN, ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE PASSAGE MENTIONED ABOVE (GOING FROM THE STATION), IS THE ONLY FISH & CHIPS BAR-SHOP ON MONCIAK. SELECTION OK. ACCEPTABLE PRICES. A MEAL FOR TWO PEOPLE (2 × FISH + 2 X SALAD + 2 X SLIGHTLY ALCOHOLIC DRINK) COST 79.76 PLN.

THE FAMILY FOUND US HERE…
