In less than a hour Spain will lose the Pheasant Island to France. But we'll take it back in February . This was established by the Treaty of the Pyrenees, signed in the island back in the 17th Century.

India - Myanmar border crossing

There are two photos at the beginning of the thread linked. I'm not able to post them directly because they're hosted in Tinypics, that is banned on SSC.

these days at Jaca it had taken place a yearly festival.

It is an area that receives a lot of people from anywhere, and most of foreing people are French (Somport tunnel is 20 km ahead only).

In the past, several times French and Spanish officers have been walking together in town and villages not far from border in both countries, but first time in Jaca



As they said, French citizens were surprised due to their presence and seems, no special cases to take care but they want to increase collaboration in order to know each side of border and best service.
In this case, they chose maybe the weekend with more French people and knew that, should they had to go to a police station, they would have a translator, in this case, or just a question in the streets or that stuff.

Which is third language in signs?

Last pictures seems to be a joined border control. Are they strong or just a glance to passport and so?

I guess no booths for international trains. Is there much traffic for these journeys?

Nice picture of the locomotive. Some countries like here in the Balkans we are even not connected with our neighbours with any train tracks

I guess that this one is, by far, the weirdest railway border pass. Isn't it?

Actually, it was crossed by a European (Austrian) a few years ago, although it's officially not available for non-Northern Koreans (I am not sure about Russians from this region).

A very interesting reading: http://vienna-pyongyang.blogspot.com

By the way, if half of Europe wasn't missing, if he started e.g. in Portugal, it would be probably the longest possible train-only trip in the world, close to a straight line.

Quite interesting... a lot of days and "only" 3.100 euros. Not expensive at all

About long train journeys, it is signed to have, at least once per year a Beijing-Madrid, calling in several warehouses areas. I do not know how much do they take but faster than by ship

Anyway the Moscow - Pyongyang train is, supposedly, the longest train connection in the world.

For sure the longest one available for passengers.

With this Beijing - Madrid train, are you talking about a passenger or freight trains?

Currently, there is a freight train that terminates in Łódź, Poland and connects the city with China.

In the north of Chile the language is in Aymara.

In the south must be Mapuche.

Loving the German RV on here, long trip for it! Reminds me of the French one I saw outside Toronto and the BC plated motorcycle I saw in North East England!

For anyone interested, this Swiss guy did a trip from Vienna to Pyongyang via a backdoor method through the Moscow rail service that he shouldn't have been able to!

I already mentioned it (about this blog report and his very exceptional trip) a few posts ago.

It's nice to learn that he is also on SSC

Anyway, it's probably impossible to do what he did any more.

He even has his photo in a North Korean train in his avatar! So it seems it's really him: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/member.php?u=291278

It's crazy that I read his post in the Polish SSC section half a year ago, I was even going to answer to him (but it turned out, others did it before me), I must have noticed this photo in his avatar then and I didn't connect those facts.

Even though having such a photo is not such a big problem (it's demanding, but it's nothing compared with crossing the Russian - North Korean border and getting to Pyongyang), you just have to go to Russia and use this train on the Russian section, without crossing the border to North Korea. But he actually WAS in North Korea having CROSSED this border! This makes it so special.

Did the recent attack changed the procedures on the border in Spain?
