I only know D1 for a short section just east of Praha. D5 is a good road. If you want to go via Dresden from Ostrava, I assume you want to use the Polish A4? Seems like quite a detour to me, I don't know if it adds up to some lost time around Praha.

Going via A4 would be a good option, but with the missing section opened (in July). What's more, there are currently two motorway x motorway junctions U/C on your way(Gliwice, Wrocław), so you might encounter heavy traffic and jams.

I know. Ljubljana was founded on a marshland, and the southern bypass is sinking in it. I hope it won't disappear one day.

Man, I have never such solution in my life... maybe some of you guys saw it.

Actually, we met some Dutch people who spoke absolutely perfect German

Belgian, Dutch, British, French and German motorways WERE busy !

We actually use some German words in Dutch too... "überhaupt, sowieso, an sich" are examples.

I can't be bothered to do something, I will upload this Belgian-style-barrier tommorow.

I could live whole my life like that.... hanging out in coolest places in Frankfurt and drink at lunch time and later getting pissed all together with mates till late.

But oh well, I am going next year as well. There won't be some people from our crew next year because they leave for university.

Bloody hell... I didn't know Brits buy so much booz... I bought one Ansbach for my dad, they bought crates of beers, wines and Jagermeister....

So, that were some new roads I haven't been on before Ofcourse I made pictures.

But damn, what a load of slowpokes on the road... I had to violate some overtaking-prohibits a couple of times, some roads have a no-overtaking law for kilometers in a row and I don't wanna get stuck behind some 65 km/h driving woman. (Yes they were all women).

Today is the first day of spring!

Because of that, and because beautiful weather that we currently have in central Poland I decided to take my bike out my parents' garage. I haven't used it since summer break trip (Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia - that was some good times... ) and it requires some work - I've replaced front brake today since it didn't work at all, both hubs require rebuilding, front shifter will die any day... But I will work on it later

Yeah, I need a new bike too, I had this one for 9 years and it always has issues, especially with the gears and pedals

I'm gonna buy a second hand one, that's more simpler. The simpler a bike, the less that can break.
