A Mouthy Brit

Time for some beach action so we head south to the Amalfi Coast. Back on the train from Napoli to Salerno then a bus to Amalfi Town. It’s a beautiful place:  We’re only here for a couple of days so we settle in and spend our first day with a bit of exploration so we…

Napolian Exploration

Right Germany’s great but it’s getting cold so we decide to chase the sunshine. Managed to find cheap flights on Easy Jet to Naples, result. I know we say this often but what a difference a short flight makes. The sky is blue without a cloud in view and the architecture is completely different.  Right,…

Gauging Interest – Part Vier 

When The Wall was dividing East and West Germany there were West managed Metropolitan trains that passed into the East. These stations were known as ghost stations as the trains could not stop but they needed to slow down as they passed. Throughout the period of the divide the stations were not updated or maintained. …

Berlin

Well Berlin is completely different from any other part of Germany we’ve seen so far.

A great…

Polskard From Gdansk 

Back on the train now to continue up north to Gdansk. We arrived on a drizzly evening, we woke up to a drizzly morning. Food will cheer us up, it did. As we have an apartment our first stop is the Old Market. A beautifully restored building full of lovely food, what’s not to love?…

Polskard from Toruń

Back on the train now, feels good. 4 hour hop to the north to visit Toruń. Advised by Lonely Planet to stop here as it managed to avoid the attentions of the aerial assaults of the war. It is indeed a beautiful city, fortified by the Teutonic Knights and examples of architecture from several centuries…

Polskard From Warsaw

Our travels continue south and the hope that the weather will warm up. It doesn’t, and we have rain in Warsaw. This coupled with irritating wasps tells us we are getting ever closer to the UK. What is the point of wasps? Anyway, we’re only here for a couple of days so we dive straight…
