We went for several rides on our bikes around the area during the week. --. When we arrived in Zakopane by train, we rode our bikes up the hill to Malgosia's house. They live up on a really big hill....ouch. So, when we went for a bikeride around Zakopane, we got to ride DOWN the hill. Yippeeee! Here is a view from halfway down to town.

One day we rode our bikes to the Tatra National Park. It is very close to Zakopane. Here is Iwona on the road near the entrance to the park.

Near Zakopane, in the valley are shepherds huts with their sheep.

The shepherd in this cabin sells smoked sheep cheese. We stopped here and bought some cheese.
