from Seattle, Washington to Leavenworth, Washington (also known as the German city in Washington State) 109 miles (175 km) one way, 218 miles (351 km) both ways (September 2010). It's interesting how the climate on the other side of the mountain is completely different. It was 14 degrees Celsius (58F) and rainy in Seattle and 32C (90F) and sunny in Leavenworth.

The Bavarian façade was developed later for tourism purposes.

Off-topic, but I caught a sign in one of those Leavenworth pictures for an Amtrak station. (I guess it's on the Seattle-Chicago line?) And yet there are cities as large as Nashville and Columbus that haven't seen a passenger train in years.

Those Brazil pictures are gorgeous. I want to go there now. Or maybe during the Northern Hemisphere winter.

Krakow - London

Many times in the past I was driving between Krakow and London and I always took the same route: A4 PL - Berlin - A2 DE - Antwerpen - Calais. It's pretty nice, motorways only, but has one big disadvantage: IT'S BORING AND FLAT.

So this time I decided to go through Leipzig, as per ViaMichelin advice:

http://tompaw.pl/ViaMichelin.pdf

Is the route OK? Also, instead of driving for 10h straight I am considering splitting the journey in two, staying somewhere for bed&beer. Anything interesting somewhere between Middle Germany and Calais? (I love town centres, more crowdy the better)

Thanks in advance!

I'm pretty excited for my possible roadtrip to Croatia this summer. I'm leaving a tad later than my parents do because of work and stuff. My sister will join me and we'll meet up with my parents somewhere in Europe. Thinking of the North Netherlands towards Cologne > Bonn > Koblenz > Stuttgart > Munich > Salzburg > A10 through Austria, later A11 down to Ljubljana > Zagreb > Rijeka > Trieste > Venice [never been there, want to see it] > Verona > Innsbruck > Ulm and Stuttgart > Back up.

Doubt that this is going to be my route since there are always going to be changes but hopefully it will be something similar. There's also a possibility that we might go to France instead [via South Germany, the only place that we have a reservation for, 8 days]. I'll see, it's gonna be awesome for sure

Consider a little detour and go to the island of Krk. The moon-like landscape at the southern end is astonishing, let me post some pictures from my May trip:

(i apologize for the quality of some pics, but those were the best ones covering the overwhelming Krk experience )

It does, you just have to try and not say the "i". Otherwise, yes

I'm not sure that I can do that, it doesn't have any vowels.

Hmm I want to post some pictures but I don't want to make page 70 too long
