Yes, they are. Thanks to those who shared.

EDIT: Hooray - we're on a new page. ;-)
Seriously, though, I do wonder if there's a better way of handling large volumes of photos, although I confess I can't think of one. It's not the photos that I was shaking my head at but the loading time. And they still didn't all display properly.

This is the trip that I made during my recent vacation in July .

Part 1: 03.07.2011 - Merano Prešov (the hometown of my wife)




Part 2: 09.07.2011 Prešov Siofok on Lake Balaton , a good place for my 2 small children




Part 3: 16.07.2011 Siófok Merano, along almost the entire path of the road E66



In the coming days (I have only little time) i will post pictures of this trip in the forums of Austria, Hungary, Slovakia and Italy.

... and I avoided another Hungarian vignette (mine was expired) and about 100 km of road (compared to M7, M70, A5, A9).

I always use this road when going to southern Austria, as it's shorter and less costly. The road is good all the way from Balaton to Austria.

I promised some time ago to post pictures of my Munich-Trento trip via Garmisch, but there are too many pictures to choose from so I will start with a short set about my daily commute from work, circa 14 km from Garching-Forschungszentrum to Munich. Sorry for the odd angles but I was shooting blindly. Let's begin!!

From the very beginning, the parking lot at MPE:


Road out of the Reasearch Centre:


Traffic lights ahead, go straight to the Autobahn:


Overpassing the A9, to the left is the entrance towards Nuremberg, to the right towards Munich. By the way, can anyone explain why Road 471 is inside a solid square while Road 11 is inside a dashed square?


Taking the ramp to Munich, non-existant deceleration lane:


And inside the Autobahn!


Exit Garching-Süd:


Ramp to A99 direction Salzburg-Innsbruck (Italy is also signed):


And this is the, much less imponent, ramp to A99 direction Stuttgart-Lindau:

Big pre-selection sign: two leftmost for Munich Centre, then the Frankfurter Ring (second ring road), then Freimann borough and last Fröttmaning/Allianz Arena:


After Fröttmaning exit just four lanes remain:


And after Freimann, just three (here begins the bridge that was reconstructed until last winter):


On the highest point of the bridge there is the exit for Föhringer/Frankfurter ring:


Approaching the end of the Autobahn, left for eastward direction, right for westward:


Autobahn splits at the very end, I'm going eastwards:


And entering the Mittlerer Ring (internal ringroad):


But I exit immediately in Schwabing:


First traffic lights at the corner with Ungererstraße, which becomes Bundesstraße 11:


And second traffic lights, right at the middle of the intersection (first time I drove here I almost crashed since I wasn't expecting a traffic lights in this weird position):


Bundesstraße 11 until the next traffic lights:


And home, at last!

I think this is because you are going on Road 471, and to reach your destination you will eventually go on Road 11.

Yep, 11 is an indirect number, signed already for navigation purposes, but you're not on the 11 yet.

My roadtrip from Vimercate (Italy) to Thun (Switzerland).

Autobahn A2 after Bellinzona. Approaching to San Gottardo tunnel.








There's a car with engine problem inside the tunnel. We have to wait the breakdown truck.




The other side of the San Gottardo tunnel.


Exit in Wassen. I take the street going to the Sustenpass


Approaching to the Sustenpass.






In winter this road is closed due to snow.




Arrived at the top of the pass.




Going down from the Sustenpass, direction Meiringen.








On the way to Interlaken.




Just passed Interlaken, on the way to Thun. A8 autobahn




Passing next to the Thunersee (Lake Thun).


Going back home on the A8.


The Jungfrau (4.158 m.) seen from the autobahn.






Enjoy

Nice. It's been 10, maybe 13 years since I've driven the Sustenpass. I missed out on it when I was in the area last year. I was also there in June 2009, but then the pass was still closed due to snow.

Doesn't matter. If you fly from Budapest to Madrid, you would also say "I've flown from Budapest to Madrid" even though you're not flying, the airplane / pilot is.

I disagree. When you are in an airplane 10.000 m above the sea level you are really flying, but when you are on the back seat of a moving car you are not driving, you are just a passenger

But I get what you were trying to tell us

Yes but you would not say "I'm piloting an airplane from Budapest to Madrid".

Is "piloting" even a word? Or is it one of those American verbs like "keyboarding"?

In Romanian there are different words for different actions:
a pilota = to drive(?) an airplane or a race car
a conduce = to drive a car

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/pilot

Since "to pilot" is a verb, I guess you can also say "piloting"
