Paul & Tracey's Travels
5th Nov 2008 - Warsaw, & T.Maz, Poland
Day 3 in Poland - Tomaszow Maz

Set off from the hotel in Spala to visit Hexagon Boats in Tomaszow. Showed the address to the hotel receptionist, and managed to get some rough directions, but where she said we should be going turned out to be the acres of industrial wasteland we had seen on the edge of town yesterday. After asking a couple of locals using international sign language (!), we eventually found the boat builder in the midst of the long abandoned industrial centre. It was a successful visit and we were able to see how our boat was taking shape. After leaving the boat builder's we took a trip into the centre of Tomaszow, and wandered around the square. It is nice to go and see the regular towns as well as the ones all the tourists usually visit - you get to see a slice of regular Polish life. On leaving the town centre, we drove the few miles south to a large lake (Zalew Sulejowski) which is clearly a summer destination, but in November was pretty much closed. The sun finally came out whilst we were there, and we had a stroll along the head of the lake which is huge and is bordered by acres of forest. By now it was mid afternoon with no more than an hours light left so we headed back to the hotel and lazed about for the rest of the day.
