Hi there! This is going to be a very short and quick post, as I am short on time. However, I really wanted to make a post about this because it’s all so exciting. I am on the road since early saturday morning, and I will be until sunday night. The next day I will be making pictures (and having fun) at a local cycling race and the next weekend I’ll leave to Oslo for a private course Norwegian!
Back to the roadtrip. I’ve already visited Germany and a part of Poland. The upcoming days I’ll be seeing much more Poland, Czech Republic and Germany. My first stay overnight was in the Radisson Blu hotel in Merseburg, a small town somewhere in Germany. And although it looked pretty dead it had a few nice surprises for me. One of them being a beautiful church (I love churches!).
Another thing was the beautiful park situated across our hotel. The park also gave access to the river, another park/path with statues, a bird spotting place and various old buildings. Nothing special, but more than enough for such a small town. If you need a place to stay in Germany for a night, a town like this is perfect. Close to the high way, hotels, a few pubs and some nice things to visit. I only stayed one night, so these were the only interesting things I noticed. However, it could have more to offer since it’s located close to other (bigger) cities, and I think the nature in this region could be interesting too.
From Merseburg we moved on to Poland and started with a two-night stay at the Angelo Hotel in Katowice. While driving to Katowice we made a few stops, one at Kąty Wrocławskie, a very small city located in Lower Silesian Voivodeship, south-west Poland. It was the first time I visited a town/city like that, so it was a bit of a shock for me. Everything looked so abandoned, dead and decayed, while it wasn’t dead at all. People were still living there, the ‘abandoned’ train station was still in use, but I still can’t believe that building was save. And again, it was a town that had to offer me a beautiful church and graveyard. To everyone who would ever visit Poland (by car): make a few stops in towns like that. It’s really interesting!
And that’s it for now! I will be blogging about Katowice, Auschwitz and Krakow later this week. And about Czermna, Prague and Wolfsburg/Autostad after the weekend. Oh and maybe I’ll re-upload the pictures (or re-edit some of them) when I get home. I’m on my laptop which hasn’t a lot of free space, and I’m using another version of lightroom/photoshop, without my own custom-made filters, presets and textures! And I lack time to edit them properly, some awesome pictures will be posted as soon as I get home. And all of the pictures I took will be uploaded on my flickr in high quality.
