Yes, but he felt so because of rising air temperature. As he got closer to Hungarian border as it was getting warmer

Yeah, I am expecting you don't get 60 days in summer with higher temperature than 30°C somewhere in Northern Poland (or maybe even Poland at all).

just bogdymol did not get it : )


This part of country is quite poor but I think it is really nice region.

if I am sure - hills on a left side are in Slovakia and on a right side in Hungary



I really like to travel by car in this part of Slovakia/Hungary

It's Slovak but most guests are from Poland crossing into Slovakia. When I was there few years ago their beer prices were definitely Polish rather than Slovak - meaning at least 30% more expensive than regular cost of a typical Slovak brew.

Their plum dumplings were excellent (I don't know what they are called in Slovak though).

Wait a second, do you have more expensive beers in Poland? I can't believe this.

It might be "slivkové pirohy" or "slivkové knedle/gule" i like it more with strawberry jam.

Here you can see a video I made last month at Cenad (RO) / Kiszombor (HU) border crossing (the border crossing starts at 11:37):

I paid a whopping 5 EUR for a beer in Italy this summer. (and it was just a regular bar, nothing fancy)

We went to Italian Alps last winter and one day we ordered 5 beers. We were quite shocked when we had to pay 25 € for it. In Slovakia it might be about 7 €.

Sorry for that off topic. I am just a bit surprised that beer is more xpensive in Poland because usually Slovak people go for a shopping to Poland cos it is less expensive.

Nowadays beer in Slovakia costs more less the same as in Poland, I mean in shops, in restaurants beer in Poland is rather more expensive. It used to be different before, everyone from Poland was buying beer in Slovakia because it was cheaper, after introducing EUR in Slovakia it has definitely changed. (In Czech Rep. beer is still cheaper )

Well, what are you doing about it? Go take appropriate pictures in Llivia or the Vall d'Aran! :-)
The nearest border to me is hundreds of miles away, and it's cold up there this time of year.

That border between Niger and Algeria is simply amazing. It puts the Schengen Space to shame.

@ I(L)WTC: thank you, it's maybe for the first time I see borders between Argentina and Chile.

In the next months I'll try and take some pics of Austria-Italy-Switzerland-Germany borders, and make this thread more "Central European"

The picture looks very old, right? It looks like it was taken in the 70's / 80's.

I have seen many, and the landscape is beautiful! Chile and Argentina are really countries I'd love to visit.


The Argentinians also put up signs at the border saying someline like "Las Malvinas Son Argentinas"
