I would rather die in a car/train crash than falling from the sky experiencing the force of 5G before I leave this world.

I haven't flied since 1997 and I feel happy about that.

Mortality for airplane crashes that were airborne is around 40% these days. Used to be more like 70% in the 1970s.

I certainly wouldn't. In car accident there is huge possibility to become disabled, for instance to lose a leg or a hand or to break neck.

I did 16 only.

By the way, I can't understand cyclist riding on busy road in peak hours instead of using very wide and safe cycle path alongside main road.

I don't like flying. mainly because of unconfortable seats, long waiting at airports, big distances between airports and centres, angry stevardeses, expensive sandwiches and overexpensive water bottles which should be free at the airport given the fact you cannot carry water on board. and only then because of disturbing turbulance.

I, too, don't like flying. But e.g. from Bonn to Budapest flying is cheaper and faster as any other vehicle (at least for 1 single person). And driving 1,100 km is not quite comfortable at all.

I don't. It's part of the deal, and plenty of places where you can have a beer while you wait...

Yes. It's the same in Serbian, but Serbia isn't part of the EU yet.

Were is it better to tank (diesel):
Germany, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary?

I will be doing a trip from Ingolstadt to Timisoara over Krakow, Auschwitz, Kosice, Debrecen. In Germany I could tank somewhere in Görlitz I guess, but further on the way, I have no clue.

During my trips I had no problem filling up with diesel in Slovakia and Hungary. Although I passed through Germany & Poland, I didn't need fuel at that time, so I haven't refilled in those countries.
