Traveling by car is quite hard if you travel for 3500 km but it gives some advantages even though has a few drawbacks. You’re able to go wherever you want whenever you wish but you gotta care about parking, pay for the highways and fuel. It takes much energy but it is still one of the good options to travel especially if you’re a couple.
The famous John Lennon wall is an incredible place with a big power over there. Must see in Prague
Not sure if there is any better time to live than the present but sometimes I’m thinking of people who were born earlier - they were able to be at Beatles’, Nirvana’s, Bob Marley’s, etc. concerts. Whatever. We’ll be able to listen to other legends that will appear after those people die. ⠀ I think all the generations have own advantages but the current time is more awesome than the past. Our time is the best even with all its troubles
All you need is love in mixing English and Czech
Charles bridge is the most important attraction in Prague for sure
I love the sewer well tops in old cities and towns. I mean it’s not just a usual thing it’s a part of city architecture
The beer saved us from dying because of rough thirst under that +26 sun. The beer called ‘Kozel’ that means ‘goat’ in Czech. the bar in old town was just so tiny and cozy that we sit there for an hour. Good beer by the way
Amazing deer above a tiny yard next to the central bus station
My girlfriend got the soldiers just for her nails color lol
Love the doors that are completely covered by some urban shit haha
A few trams passed before we managed to take the pic
This baby let us travel for 3,500 km. She was dying in the Swiss mountains and she was so cozy for the narrow Paris streets.
High from the very birth
The blue beverage is named Hugo, if you see it in Germany - don’t taste it (if only you like drinking chemicals) *at my relatives’ in Germany
A channel photo before arriving to Amster, uh? I was driving for almost 12 hours in total, that was a bit hard, but okay. Watched the city called Utrecht, by the way, it is almost twice bigger than Amsterdam. Utrecht is really nice. Parkings can be a problem for poor travelers but it’s another challenge - to find a free parking. *spoiler: we will give up at next locations and will use paid parkings as well
If you’re a traveling couple, always hold your hands <3
The ESN office just reminded me my Erasmus in Poland *yuhoo*. Greetings to all Erasmus people reading this
an awesome mix of flowers, bicycles, and channels. The main transport in Holland is bikes. They are everywhere. They have an advantage over cars and pedestrians. How they ride! Bloody hell... I thought about it for a moment - I think bikes are still cool and it’s amazing that the Netherlands were able to create this infrastructure and taught people to ride bicycles daily.
the same + Anna
love those houses in the Netherlands
Looks like a dream - taking the truck and going through the whole continent to the ocean, doesn’t it? As for me, it’s really a dream. Would you try? We took the picture and went out of the city to Zaandam!
We used Airbnb to find the accommodation. The house was quite old (but we enjoyed that), a bit narrow and crooked. I think all the old houses in the Netherlands are quite the same
Do you ever call Amsterdam as Amster?
Amsterdam is exceptionally awesome after rain. This was my second time in the city and first time I saw it wet. I don’t know but in my head the image of the city is always wet
Typical pic from there: channel, bicycles, and beauty
This was my best birthday ever 🖤
You can find the T-shirts on pokras.shop with free worldwide shipping (my gf gifted them for my birthday)
If you know, you know
Watch the city centre, buy the tulips, eat a cake (if you like), enjoy the architecture, take amazing pics, stay okay. The city of freedom, the city of joy
I love the photo so much
This is how we were finishing the night there after a hard rain. Then we took a train and missed our stop while eating Speculoos (you gotta try it while in the Netherlands or Belgium, it is fucking delicious, we even made it once at home).
Drawbridge. Of course. We are in the Netherlands 🇳🇱
That day we were going to Belgium through a few cities. The first one was Lisse. We wanted to see the tulip fields but we were there out of the season, so we just walked through the centre, took some strawberries at the local market, ate it and drove away. If you travel to the Netherlands and wanna see the tulips, don’t forget about the season because you can see them in spring and early summer only.
strawberries and an old man on a bicycle (😌) By the way, another thing that we love the country for is the dark bricks 🧱 We just love the color so much and so many building in Holland have been built with the material, oh yeah
The Hague is a bit empty for tourists, I think, but there are still some things to see. We liked the pierce, for example. Just add some colors and any place will turn into something nicer. There were some surfers 🏄♂️
Out travel fetish is collecting Ferris wheels 🎡 So this is another one in our collection. The photo is staying in a frame in our apartment
I haven’t got a good picture from there eh
a swan in a pond in the city centre. isn’t it cool
Rotterdam is nice. We spent a couple of hours there, just watched the centre and walked through. I think I ain’t got that much to say about the city. I think you need to spend a couple of days, visit the museums and so on. Maybe only then you’ll be able to have your own opinion on the city
a typical pic of me
We spent a night in a really awesome guest house in a Belgium village named Le Fond de la Biche. We highly recommend the place for all tourists. You can search for it on Booking. The host is an amazing cute woman that speaks French and English. By the way it was quite cheap for the places. It’s on the french border. Just take a look at the room.
We spent in Paris just about 6 hours. This is extremely little. We have to come back and spend there a week, I know. But. These few hours were enough to get the first impression. It smells, it’s crowded, it’s absolutely beautiful. I really like the city, even if this is a city of contrasts (I think so is every huge city). It’s a bit shocking - to walk around the places that you’ve seen many times but in movies only. p.s. Notre Dame is reconstructing, so it’s okay
feels like the place of liberty. I don’t know but I felt absolutely amazing there. I’m kinda in love with all the things: revolution, history, liberty, etc. so the place is definitely for me.
The city is kinda filled with the historical events and persons, with the illusion characters, with the movie and book stories. Paris smells like a mix of French perfume and vomit (sorry for my French). But this just makes it special. Btw, croissant is a breakfast, you can’t just eat it whenever you want.
posing in the lovely streets. But I remember them as crazy places to drive in. I ain’t sure how many rules we broke that day 😆. But a few - for sure.
how does it feel like to live in a capital city?
I was so impressed being there. Have you watched the brilliant movie trilogy ‘Before sunrise’? Highly recommended
useless but impressive, yah
the final Paris picture for all the cliche romantics.
The night before I took this picture we were going from Paris to Tassin (this is a town near Lyon). And just because we planned our visit to Paris really badly in terms of time - we reached Tassin at 4 am (5 hours later they we were supposed to). I’m hugely grateful to the guy in the motel that we’re going to have a night in for allowing us to check in at this late time. He could easily have not let us in. The road from Paris was a madness. We were super tired after such a full day and one of our car lights suddenly went out. So we were out of schedule, totally exhausted and our car was partially broken. But we’ve managed as you can see
a car pic on our way to the French Rivera
We spent a night in the hotel right on the coast. This is a photo from our hotel room
that evening we were trying to find a restaurant that has a menu in English and is not that expensive at the same time. The problem is that the town wasn’t touristic at all. But we found a small street food Portuguese BBQ bar. There wasn’t a menu in English, but the guy that is the owner of the place was really nice and he translated everything we needed so we took a couple of Portuguese beers and spent a few hours among the local French.
a sunrise ☀️
Côte d’Azur is one of the best places that I’ve ever been to. I mean you must take a car and go there at least once a life. Mountains and the sea, what might be better, ah? It was so breathtaking, being there. I mean, literally, you’re going and going and everything around you is becoming more fascinating with each kilometer. We drove out the entire coast in the end.
the water color *_*
don’t pay attention to that guy, I know the photo is hilarious 😂
oh, the same guy, sorry
we stayed at the villa right next to the seaside route. We really enjoyed the fact that we were staying and eating not at touristic places. I love such places because there is everything real. There is nothing that was added to the menu just to gratify the tourists with some money. Everything is natural and organic. The only problem is - language. Very few people speak English in such places. Google translator is you best friend though
another French breakfast by the sea.
I’m literally in love with those croissants 🥐
We spent in Milano about 3 hours only :( it was just a short stop on our way home. There we met an Italian friend of mine - Silvia ->
We were studying together in Poland in 2018 and this is our first meeting after Erasmus :) so lovely to meet your good friend in a year
we actually just ate pasta, drank some coffee and walked for a bit in the centre. The only thing we were able to notice is that Milan has so many stylish people that even didn’t feel comfortable haha
That day we went through Switzerland 🇨🇭 enjoying the amazing mountain views 🏔 I would like so spend our holidays here but next time when we are millionaires 😂
our little baby car was dying on these up and down mountain roads but we survived
this is the second place on my ‘enjoy driving list’ right after French Rivera
we made a short stop on the petrol station in Lichtenstein. One of the smallest states in the world. They accept both Euros and Swiss Francs, speak German. Interesting and a bit odd country, isn’t it?
Even though we spent there like 40 minutes I think we still can count the country as ‘visited’
Vaduz city centre
I didn’t see such coke in other places. that day I drove 1000km. One of the longest distances I have ever reached within a day
