I like how you see the cars on the right lane, driver says something like "o kurwa" from so many bumps, so tries left lane, "o kurrrwwwaaa!" and goes back to right lane

Yeah and due to a lack of funds southern carriageway won't be ripped up and replaced with a better quality road surface any time soon (at least not before 2020)

'A watched kettle takes longer to boil' or so the saying goes.

Sooner or later eastbound A18 will get upgraded and it will be a joy to drive on. Right now, westbound A18 is one of my favourite roads because of the low traffic volume and the mysterious woodlands through which the road passes, an example of which is given below. The Lipiany South rest area (MOP) serves easily the best kotlet schabowy in the world garnished with salads made from the freshest local produce. I've heard many a truck driver describe their cuisine as 'niebo w gębie'. I highly recommend stopping by and sampling their wholesome dishes, which you will find a far cry from modern fast-food outlets serving 'meals' of dubious parentage.

Personally, I don't mind waiting another few years for the A18 because the step change in quality will be worth it, just take a look at these historical comparisons taken with my fair hand:

Is this really the last remaining stretch of a (Reichs-)Autobahn* built by Nazi-Germany in Europe?

Last summer a short stretch of A11 in Germany and a few km of DK3/6 near Szczecin also had such pavement.

I broke my right front spring during that trip.

I´m sorry to hear that. Too bad you can´t sue the 3rd Reich anymore for a recompense.

Reichsautobahn

It doesn't look so bad on photos, but when driving 80 or 100 km/h, you're bouncing to the roof of your vehicle.

Yeah, the road looks almost romantic but I can sympathise with your experience of bouncing up to the roof and having your innards rearranged every few minutes. Just like you, I damaged my suspension driving on these last remaining RAB roads. In my case it was about 10 years ago driving on the A18 where part of my wishbone suspension manifold split. I only discovered the fault a few days later and had to face an unexpected large bill of something like €400. All part of the rich tapestry of life.

These days I am a little wiser and limit my exposure to such risks.

Some people in Poland (believe it or not) are still not aware of the fact that the war is over.

He just got busted by cops (not his first circus act - he was jailed for stunt driving before) !

Policja zna już nazwisko kierowcy, który urządził sobie rajd ulicami Warszawy - nieoficjalnie dowiedziało się RMF FM. Wszystko wskazuje na to, że to Robert N., ps. Frog. Szaleńczą jazdę kierowca białego sportowego bmw nagrał, a film wrzucił do sieci. Okazuje się, że to niepierwszy wyczyn 23-latka. W lutym pędził ponad 200 km/h drogą krajową numer 7. Świętokrzyska policja ścigała go wówczas przez dwa powiaty.

The speed limit is 80 on this road, lowered to 60 at places. Driving faster than 120 is not feasible. Luckily the other westbound carriageway is of superb quality. Accidentally I got to experience only the eastbound carriageway this time , when going west I forgot to exit the A4 for the A18 and had to go through Dresden and not through Berlin.

The route through A4 and Dresden is a bit hilly, which is less comfortable but more scenic. For longer routes from North-West Germany to South East Poland I would advice to take the A4 and go through Dresden. For the westbound routes I would advice to take the A18 and go through Berlin.

Next time I am driving east I will take the A4 and go through Dresden...


It was great that the Mzsana bridge on A1 is opened. I think it takes some 20 minutes off from Ostrava - Katowice route.
