Nice video; they really made it smooth-to-cross; there are more curves at our border crossings.

You're right. Other video's I've seen from e.g. the German-Polish border near Olszyna and Swiecko have much more curves. You have to slow down much more. There must be some reason for it

Now they should only repave it and it would be perfect, like in federal era.

Recht und Ordnung vs. Dolce Vita

Somewhere along the German (D)-French (F) border.

Admire the impeccably weeded path on the German side of the border compared to the, how should I say..., more "Latin" upkeep of the path on the French side of the border.

Here it's the French who are 'Recht und Ordnung' and the Germanics who are 'dolce vita'. This is the border between France and the Netherlands on the Caribbean island of St Martin (someone asked for pics of that border). In the foreground, the road without markings is on the Dutch side of the island, whereas the road with markings in the background is on the French side of the island.

France to the left, Deutschland to the right. The picture was taken in the Swiss city of Basel (Basle).

Anyone made pics yet of the skiing border crossing in the High Tatras
That Slovakian road looks awful

Poland in particular has been fully covered.

You know, you can ski from Poland to Slovakia in the High Tatras. At least, that is what my travel guide said

I hope so, but anyway it shouldn't be DK road. BTW, there seems to be big activity on our borders with all those reconstructions.

There's still plenty of the-end-of-the-world-crossings left. E.g. this one or this one, but also this one. We cannot forget this one. And that's only borders eastern from Tatras.

You mean this one?



Photo was made during Summer so there is no snow to ski on. But even in Winter I don't recommend to ski there, you know, it's national park...

These two markers show the exact location of the old border between France and the German Empire in the Vosges Mountains.

Yesterday I drove through Austria from Slovenia to... Slovenia. Must be one of the shortest transit routes through Austria, just about 13 km.

The first border crossing I used was at Jezerski vrh / Seebergsattel at 1218 m elevation:


After 13 km I crossed Pavličevo sedlo / Paulitschsattel at 1338 m:

None of the roads are particularly important, especially the second one, so they are really quiet.

According to Google Maps that road is very hilly, and there are some hairpin turns. Did you make any other pics?

^ No, sorry, even these two pics aren't mine, I'd probably get sick by taking pics on such a winding road. So yeah, it's really winding and quite steep (up to 18%), and that second road is rather narrow, the Austrian side has only been open for a few years.
