Geocaching

The hotel was in the middle of nowhere. It was surrounded by fields and forests, at the entrance to a small polish village in the outskirts of Katowice. I had nothing to do until dinner and it all looked like I was going to spend the time staring at my phone in my room. That did not sound very appealing. Suddenly, I recalled geocaching, a world-wide game about finding hidden secrets at specific locations. And to my surprise, quite a number of such secrets where hidden near that lonely hotel. I found one of them and got amazed at the thought that such "treasures" are hidden everywhere around us by other players of a silent game that spans the whole world.

In this case, the cache was just a small container with the list of names of the finders
