Last Day at Pałac i Folwark Galiny


View Horseback riding in Poland on bejjan's travel map.

So, the last day had arrived. Walked over to the breakfast and saw a happy 1,5-year-old stallion run by with a halter strop attached. For a brief moment I was considering whether to run after or not, but realized I wouldn’t make it for breakfast… so the choice was obvious. Gathering at 8.30 in the stable and I asked if the caught the young horse – which they had.

Today I rode with three other Polish people (the Frenchman and the Turkish lady had already checked out) and it was a jumping lesson. So far, all my lesson had been in English, but now the instructor spoke Polish (even though she translated in English afterwards) so it was a little confusing. But Tarzan and I manage to jump an entire course of seven fences anyway. And it was not the Tarzan I had experienced during the hack out earlier during the week. No. Now he was sooo slow, in the big indoor arena.

After the riding lesson, I rushed back for a shower and packed the last of my things in my bags to make the check out at 11 am. The staff came over with a car and picked up my bags and drove them to the reception. One last lunch at noon was included in the price. And guess what I chose? Beef steak and oven baked potatoes and Hot Chocolate Lava Cake as dessert. Then I had some time to kill before my transfer arrived at 2 pm. It was the same driver who drove to the Palace, that was going to drive me back to Gdansk again. The car ride took about 2,5 hours.

So, now I had to spend a night at a hotel at Gdánsk Lech Wałęsa Airport, and fly home on Sunday with Norwegian instead. And all because of the Lufthansa strike. So, no. Never Lufthansa, ever again. Checked in at Hampton by Hilton at the airport. The person at the reception was very nice and reminded me that the time would change tonight, that was one hour back. But of course, I had already thought of that. But I was a little nervous about messing things up and ending up missing the flight anyway.
