The may trip is coming slowly to the end. I stayed one more night in Borås. It was time to move to Stockholm. Quickly and reliably! Considering all my options I decided for bus. I visited Couch-surfing meeting in capital, spent one night and take flight to Bremen, Germany. My cool friend and classmate from bachelor degree was waiting for me on airport. It was really nice change after travelling more or less alone that some […]

A big city with the convenience of a small town

If I should describe the Borås there are three things which quickly come to my mind. Sculptures, wall paintings and textile. Borås is situated one hour by express bus from Göteborg. When you arrive by bus or train you are already in centre! Centre of the city is easy to walk around. First what you notice is a nice park bordered by a river. Few streets with shops and restaurant. A square with town hall which is Oldest building […]

Hitch-hiking to Göteborg by bus

After I get off in the gas station with shopping center behind. Still in Norway but close to the Swedish border I had to make again a decision. Where will I stand to get a lift? Will I stay at the gas station and speak to people? Or will move closer to the exit where I could maybe stop more cars but cannot speak to the driver? Both have their own pros and cons but […]

I landed second time in Oslo Rygge airport. This time destination was not Norway but South to the Sweden. I thought I will be able to hitch-hike straight from airport to Sweden. Even though Rygge airport is close to the Swedish border there was not so much cars with Swedish identity plate as I expected. I decided I will be more successful with plan B. Going  opposite direction. Direction Oslo. On one of the of […]

Landed in Riga airport. Been there already so way to center was simple! Process is following: before leaving airport building grab a free map of capital, buy a bus ticket in advance cross the parking area and wait for bus or actually micro-bus, its also line 22 but faster with few stops, directly to center kill a hunger: Pelmene XXL on train station, affordable, pay how much you put on your plate. Don’t forget to include […]

March. Spring nowhere. Feels like winter Don’t worry there was no snow. But windy weather and temperature around five degrees. It encouraged me to put all warm clothes I had. Oslo Rygge is one of the two airports where low-cost airlines fly to “Oslo.” One hour from the capital. I spoke to the one Polish couple who drove me the one of the metro stations. Metro is called here T-bane, with sign of letter T. As […]

Wroclaw

I again realized how are my neighbor countries interesting. I usually plan to travel somewhere faraway. Visit some exotic places. In the same time I somehow underestimate that cool places are just behind the corner! I realized this last year when I was actually first time in Budapest. Fascinated by the city. I regret that I haven’t visited Hungary earlier and more. I had the same impression in Wroclaw.

Friday 8th of May, I thought I will start my trip in the morning. In the end morning was like 12 o’clock. Destination: Wroclaw, Poland. What is the best place to practice hitch-hiking? Of course in the beginning of the trip in Czech Republic and not in a foreign country! So I used public transport to get to the exit direction Olomouc, Ostrava. What seemed like a good spot according to Hitchwiki, looked great on […]

Sometime at spring I decided to change my typical end of semester at university. Instead of exam period I decided to escape out of everyday routine in Brno and travel. Travel for one month on my own. Inspired by many blogs, travelers in my social circle and a event about travelling by Unifer I made the final decision. I had to hurry up with exams, make them as soon as possible or postpone them to […]
