Day 45. Kościerzyna - Gdansk 12 km (1851 km)
My newfound knowledge about Kashubia tells me that I will stay in Kashubia all day, imagine that ! Early breakfast and hurry to the train, the first train of the day.
Once at the station I almost get a stroke when I see this relic from 1970 or so, but it turns out that it’s not my train.
The train ride is very slow, in average there is a stop every 4 minutes, lots of people getting on and off. One traveler with a bike get a lecture from the conductor on that the bike need a ticket and a reservation. I can understand the conductor is using me as an example on how it’s done.
When I arrive in Gdansk it’s way to early to check in to the hotel, so I go for a long ride to the Speed Queen laundromat. It’s the same thing as in Croatia except there is no-one there cleaning and disinfecting. But it looks clean enough, there is even a cafe next door.
It’s a very sunny and nice day. When the laundry is done I bike all the way back to the train station and find the hotel. I can check in early. The room is very small and very hot and more than 210 PLN. The restaurant serves a fixed menu during a few hours, menu is in complicated Polish. So I take a walk and find an amazing sushi place. I take a walk inside the Galeria Baltycka, lots of Swedish people that go there shopping, unclear why.
The ferry will leave the day after tomorrow, so tomorrow I will sleep late and focus on doing nothing.
