You know what they say about Atlanta: Its problem is it's surrounded by Georgia.

(Sorry. Couldn't resist. And they really do say that.)

Serbia is maybe full of old Yugos and Zastavas, but none of them is in as bad condition as the Volkswagen Beetle in the previous picture.

It's full and you know that.I think that Beetle is rusty because owner wants to have car which looks like that.

the "patina look" is a big thing for VW-enthusiasts even in Europe... American "muscle car" fan would never accept rust on his car, but "hot rod" types would...

But the car had sparks flying under it, as the poster said.

I'll do Arad - Linz (Austria) tomorrow + Linz - Paris on Monday. And on Tuesday I'm flying to UK. Wednesday back to Paris... quite a busy schedule.

Will you get to see Paris at all, or straight to the airport? When I did it I left Cluj in the morning and made it to Mayrhofen in the evening. From there on via E60 all the way to Tours. This was before they upgraded certain roads in Romania and Hungary...

If you're driving all the way to Paris why not drive to the UK?

If it's Central London he is going to, it's probably a good idea to leave your car behind. Although I would have taken the Eurostar train from city centre to city centre...

I have a meeting near Leeds, so it's better and faster to take the plane from Paris to Manchester. On Wednesday I fly back to Paris where I will spend a week+ with my wife.

Paris-London by train isn't slower than by plane if you consider the time to travel between airports and cities, check in, boarding,... From Paris to northern England plane is faster.

Anywhere. I didn't travel much ever since though for other reasons like work.

No more than € 60 came from my bank account (though my girlfriend probably paid me a couple snacks on the fly that I'd have otherwise not bought, but nothing more than extra €30-40).

Few years ago I traveled by train from Paris to London, for a 1-day city break in London. I had to explain a little bit to the border officers why I am taking the train early in the morning and my return is late in the evening.

I've got less questions while entering USA than when entering UK, France or Germany.

Had countless times the same experience wth UKBA when travelling from London to France for day trip, their reaction was priceless telling them that i just go for a cup of coffee to France and that i will return the same day.
