Once I woke up started thinking about the route for today and tomorrow. I still have the option of going through Tallinn or via St. Petersburg and I decided that final decision is done based on how the driving feels today. St. Petersburg route would almost for sure mean one more night compared to Tallinn option.

Was downstairs bat 07:00 for breakfast, couple of other quests there as well.

Breakfast was just perfect, would make me drive all day long with this.

Went to breakfast pretty soon after 07:00, at least I had been awake already for quite some time.

Breakfast was as good as before, lots of different food:

Room was quite big in here, but missing a desk where to do some work. For that needed to go downstairs and wait for breakfast to start at 08:00. This day was going have a late start.

We had agreed to have breakfast at 07:00 and once we walked down there was like half done. Hot water and juice ready, marmalade and butter on table but no bread.

But after a while lady came and handed over to us the bread as well and some cheese & sausage as well. Good to go.

We had set alarm to wake us up at 06:00, had a slow breakfast and then packed rest of the stuff.

Went to load bike with some packages already and found this on the way:

Turned out that this man came from a 4-day wedding and had slept there whole night… and slept until just before we left…

Woke up early and while waiting for breakfast to be served at 07:00 checked how fast the internet connection was here in hotel Komovi. Quite good result for a hotel!

Restaurant was totally empty when I got down, needed to wait a bit and search after someone from the reception.

Breakfast was nicely ready as agreed when I got down from my room at 07:00. Nothing big, but for the price of this place just enough!

Breakfast was about to start by 07:00 and I almost slept too late! Was right after seven downstairs and again – first one to arrive. Even the lights were not on.

Had quite a nice breakfast, nothing fancy but everything needed to wake me up. Coffee was just excellent, just on my taste.

Had a good night sleep and woke up when alarm went off at 06:30.

Once I got my eyes open, started making my own breakfast since in Aranyszarvas Vendégház there was no such option available as breakfast. Room had a water cooker so did not have to take out my own.

Two pieces of porridge and coffee and I was totally awake.

By 08:30 all packed and I was ready to ride again. Weather was looking really nice.

Breakfast at Ibis Warszawa Centrum is not that good as it used to be, not bad either but selection has been cut down. Also internet connection is really poor nowadays, not really...
