Road to Buenos Aires

After having dinner and some beers with my sister and some friends, I went to the trainstation in Salzburg around 1am last Saturday to catch the train to Venice. Some hours with a good sleep later, I arrived in Italy. After a coffee break and sitting in the sun at Canale Grande I took the Vaporetto to the airport to get my first flight to Istanbul.

back on the road again

When coming back from my last trip from Asia, I wasn’t really sure if this was already the end and if I should aim for a new job, or if I should go traveling again…

Checking different options after some weeks I decided to leave home again. First I wanted to go to Asia again and explore southeast Asia, but then I decided to cross the Atlantic Ocean. Not sure if I should start with Central or South America, as I currently have friends traveling in both regions, I decided to go to Argentina first…

Then we recognized that a train, which had Nizhny Novgorod written on it left the train station. After 2 minutes we recognized that this would have been our train.

But this problem I solved as well. Continue reading Moscow

Warsaw

After some hours on the train without having slept much, I arrived on Thursday afternoon in the capital of Poland. Did some sightseeing, learned that a “normal” beer is served as 1 litre (which I like for €3.50) and just walked around in the city. Had a quiet night in the hostel and on Friday I was just wondering why there was so much going on in the city. Then I realized, that it was 9th of May, so called Victory Day. One of the most important days in ex-socialist countries as there was the victory against Nazi-Germany in 1945.
