Europe » Poland » Pomerania » Chojnice September 23rd 2010

In Chojnice I met with Michał, my close friend from the former martial arts club. We practiced together and we drank much beer together. :-) Nowadays we could met and see each other what realle changed in our life. In Michał's life plenty things were changed, in mine maybe not so much. During this visit Michał led me through the town and even we undertook short excursion to Charzykowskie Lake. There is a well known resort in Poland, I heard before some positive opinion. Chojnice is just common town, not so excited but not boring. We found nice restaurant and had lunch, traditional Polish dish tasted me very much. I bought red teas there and I was a bit surprised we found tea shop. I'm drinking those teas from Chojnice in job. What else? I promised ... read more

Europe » Poland » Pomerania » Gdansk September 22nd 2010

I travelled to Gdańsk in SKM train, very fast. I had one stop in Sopot - I got off the train overthere because I wanted to go to Sopot's pier. This short excursion took just one hour. To Gdańsk I got about 5pm and I gave a bell to Tomek to let him know I'm already here. He replied me we could meet up aside of Monument Defenders of Polish Post in Gdańsk. Until this time I found a cheap hotel in Wałowa street - just for about 40 złoty (10 euro) per night. We sat in beer garden nearby Wyspa Spichrzów and made the orders. We were talking couple of hours because we hadn't seen each other from at least 4 years, even 5 five. We had plenty topics to talk especially reagarding current economical ... read more

Europe » Poland » Pomerania » Gdynia September 22nd 2010

Afterwards I spent holiday together with Ania and Robert I decided to spend little time alone :-) I desired to visit my two friends whose live in Pomerania in north Poland, they invited too. Tomek lives in Gdańsk and Michał in Chojnice. I arrived at the morning of Wednesday 22th of September to Gdynia, a harbour in east part of Polish coast. Because I had a big advance - spare time before I met with Tomek - and I made up mind to see ORP Błyskawica in Gdynia. Nowadays ORP Błyskawica (Polish word "błyskawica" means lightning in English) is the oldest preserved destroyer in whole of the world. She was constructed in Cowes's shipyard (Isle of Wight - southern England) in 1936, in the next year she entried into the service in Polish Navy shortly before ... read more

Europe » Germany » Bavaria » Linderhof September 16th 2010

We were driving to Linderhof along the very scenic route :-) That palace was built by Ludwig II of Bavaria in neo-baroque style. Construction plans were created in 1869 and palace was built in years 1874 - 1878. King Ludwig II of Bawaria used to live in Linderhof most of the time. Linderhof in defference than to the others castles (palaces) of Ludwig II of Bavaria isn't revised copy of another castle of palace like Neuschwanstein is. By the way Ludwig II was inspired of Petit Trianon in Versailles in France and other French significant buildings from 18th century. That palace jest much smaller than the other buildings built by Ludwig II of Bavaria, thus is more comfortable to sightseeing. Inside as noticed palace is a bit s... read more

Europe » Austria » Tyrol » Reutte September 16th 2010

We spotted ruins of Ehrenberg Schloβ when we were driving towards Innsbruck. We finally decided to visit there. At present Ehrenberg Schloβ saved as ruins. In past that was pretty important power centre and it was known as Ehrenberger Klause. That castle had build in narrow pass that divided local area and separated Lech valley from district Zwischentoren. First castle had been built at 13th century. Afterwards is was enlarged and developed and it allowed for local ruler based there and lawmade. Local authorities moved eventually to nearby Reutte in 16th century. From that time Ehrenberg served as fortress and roughly 1k soldiers based inside its walls. Soldiers based there until the fortress was seriously damager during French invasion of the Tyrol at the beginn... read more

Europe » Austria » Tyrol » Innsbruck September 15th 2010

We travelled to Innsbruck in Austria instead Liechtenstein. The main factor why made up mind to change our plans was distanse and time. Eventually we travelled to Innsbruck and that was good choice. While we were driving overthere we didn't use motorways because we found parallel way and that possible to drive from one village to another according the map. We wanted to get to know Austria a bit. Alps in Tyrol are higher than those in Germany and roads much more sinuous. Country is modern, that is visible anywhere. When we got to Innsbruck we noticed town looks as much bigger than it really is. I think we thought like so because Innsbruck hosted two Winter Olimpic Games - in 1964 and 1976. We spotted famous ski jump stadium Bergisel where Adam Małych broke the ... read more

Europe » Germany » Bavaria » Neuschwanstein September 14th 2010

At the next day - Tuesday we decided we experience something completely different. We noticed cable rail next to the Hohenschwangau village and we decided to go there early morning. We had purpose to see some more attractions except fairy tale castles biult by king Ludwig II of Bavaria. We hadn't suitable stuff to hiking over mountains so we could have ride in cable rail to the top of Tegelberg and hike a bit overthere. How to get to cable rail station under Tegelberg from Schwangau by foot? Easy :P We just went left and short after we turned into Tegelbergerstraβe. Everything included station at the top is visible from Schwangau. When you walking along the Tegelbergerstraβe you'd get to the small bridge, cross it and you'd see the cable rail station. Piece of cake :-) ... read more

Europe » Germany » Bavaria » Fussen September 13th 2010

We drove to Füssen several times while we were being in Bavaria. This small nice town was our shopping centre :-) Town is nice and as we noticed there are some interesting places and worthy to visit, but we really we hadn't enought time and goodwill to drive everywhere. The most interesting for me were some triskelions. These ones were black on the yellow background. Three combined legs I saw everywhere in the Isle of Man and I was nice surprised the Füssen's coat of arms is well known for me. ... read more

Europe » Germany » Bavaria » Neuschwanstein September 13th 2010

When we finished the first tour we followed by the program and we went towards second castle, much more famous - Neuschwanstein Castle. German: Schloβ Neuschwanstein - I can translate this as New Swan Stone castle or something like that. because We had any spare time we walked a bit and we spent most of that time in shop with rubbish stuff for tourists (this is my opinion someone might has an opposite one). Ania purchased someting, I ignored these stuff as usual because I have no enought room to keep this kind of souvenirs from all my trips in home :P Still was raining, but we didn't take that as obstruction and we went towards Neuschwanstein. We weren't alone, no definitely no - crowd of tourists followed in the two opposite directions - towards and ... read more

Europe » Germany » Bavaria » Hohenschwangau September 13th 2010

We started our Tour of Bavaria at Monday morning. We had to get to Hohenschwangau village and we decided unanimously to go there by foot, the distance is just two kilometers (in English Hohenschwangau might mean upper Schwangau). During we were walking towards Hohenschwangau village we admired the local landscape and we had to admit Bavaria is really posh - even pasture's grass was cut and we couldn't spot any litter over the streets, really nothing. For me it was a bit shocky because I got used to see litter everywhere in UK. So german Bavaria is different world. How to get by foot from Schwangau to Hohenschwangau? Very easy. Wanderer must leave hotel and go left and after turn right to Schloβstraβe (it means Castle street) and we carry on the same way until we ... read more
