Ready to hit the road

1514620_380886425387380_4428249408742633151_nHi my fellow travellers!

I’ve been travelling and living in Spain for 10 days now and I’m looking forward to telling you some of the stories I’ve had so far, starting with the unique and huge celebration of easter in Sevilla (semana santa –  holy week).

Before it, let me give some space to my idea, to increase visibility in this large community of bloggers.

I’ve made 3 t-shirts with my webpage address and 3 slogans that fully represent me:

-Hitch hike (with the notorious symbol of fb)

-Ready to hit the road (modifying one of my favorite piece of street-art)

-Backpackers tryathlon (a camera for the sightseeing; a beer for the leisure, a bunk bed for our deserved rest in the hostel)

Which one do you like the most?

Of course if you will happen to meet a guy with one of those t-shirts, it will be most certainly me, so don’t hesitate to stop me for a chat (and a beer!) together 🙂

Wroclaw or WrocLOVE?

2013-11-04 21.45.32First thing to say about this beautiful polish city is how difficult might be the pronunciation of it…try with ‘vrotzlaf’ or breslavia if you are italian 🙂

After Poznan, football and vodka I reached ‘vrotzlaf’ by blablacar, not an easy ride, Mr. Kuba’s car had a couple of troubles during the way and we were lucky to arrive within 3 hours in the city.

Wroclaw is one of the biggest polish city (after Warsaw and Krakow), with a big student community, intense night-life and nice sightseeing to offer to tourists and travellers.

2013-11-04 17.22.05 First thing I did was to check-in the friendly Friends hostel

Let’s have a look at the city, with an astonishing square and building on the river banks:

Street-art, the city has a big connection with design and art

Other symbol of the city, the small islands (Ostrow Tumski) and bridges, for this reason it’s called ‘the venice of poland’ for the amount of bridges, I was told around 200???? but I didn’t see so many!!!!

2013-11-05 13.14.46 2013-11-05 13.16.39 2013-11-05 13.22.12 Oh yes, of course this is an other symbol of Poland…

2013-11-05 13.34.54  Cathedral of St. John the Baptist

As per in Poznan, search for mleczny bar (milk bar) for a cheap and proper local tasty lunch (some of them are: Bar Mewa, Bar Bazylia, Bar Mis), there are also nice canteen-style restaurants that offer buffet meals priced by weight (one in fron t of the university entrance).

Night city tour…

2013-11-06 10.52.32 No! It didn’t happen to me, unfortunatly…anyway this city should be called WrocLOVE!!!!

Berlin

Yes, long time I haven’t written here, cause, guess…I was travelling 🙂

Berlin was my first destination, almost a month ago, I ‘touched’ 5 countries, visited 4 capital cities and many other nice towns.

Below some pictures I took…I hope you will like them

2013-10-28 22.14.56 eat local! german burgers are better than american food chains!

Try a Currywurst at Curry 36, a kebab at Mustafa and a burger at Burgermeister, they all are a ‘must to do’
