4 hours Roadtrip from Prague to Western Poland
The third day of our short vacation/birthday treat has begun, and how did we spend it? just one and another thing we love to do. Roadtrip to Poland! I would say this is one of those off beaten track. that we have as we love to be impulsive when it comes to choosing our travel destination.
The destination? the city of Wroclaw found in western Poland. Approximately 350 kilometers (220 mi) from the Baltic Sea to the north and 40 kilometers (25 mi) from the Sudeten Mountains to the south.
Before our jaunt commences, we first went to check to a Shell gasoline station. To assure everything is doing good in terms of our car’s engine and condition.
Actually, since the second day, we encountered some struggles with one of our car’s tire (left front). We rechecked and verify everything and now we are ready to go!
The day seems perfect, the weather was nice, and the sun is shimmering. Getting on the high way and eventually, on the big routes, it was flawless. There wasn’t a huge traffic, the road flow was just perfect for our short road trip.
As a “routard” in the sense of traveler, we invariably love to do some exploration and discoveries of neighboring cities that we visited. Being on the road gives a great chance to self-reflect, to clear our minds, and amaze the glimpse of nature.
Fine Dining in a Plane?
An hour later, still on the road, of course, I have seen this unusual place. I guess it was a restaurant installed inside the airplane, I’m not that 100% sure yet but It cannot be a simple plane in this kind of road.
Viewing from a sneak glimpse that I have witnessed since the car was on it high speed. The plane was established with a building on its right side and there were people in its vicinity, which means it’s not possible to take off in this area.
If it was really a restaurant or even a kind of store, that will be a great idea to have. Brillant idea I can say, a dining restaurant inside the plane, that would be really awesome. What do you think?
Improbable Rock Mountains
Minutes after, another outlook from afar astound my attention. It was this gigantesque rock form like a mountain. Unfortunately, my phone’s camera isn’t that much high quality than my eyes, it cannot picture out the same what I have seen.
I haven’t had the time to see on the GPS for our location that time, but pretty sure we are still in the Czech Republic.
Welcome to Poland
At last, after 2 hours on the road, we are here, in Poland! but wait we are just actually half way of our final destination. Crossing the border between two countries you’ll expect something like “Welcome to (name of the country)” well in Poland, I haven’t seen any of it.
As I’ve seen on the GPS, we are currently in Szklarska Poręba, a city situated on the border of the country.
Stop! Look! and Listen!
One of the most incredible parts of this road trip is exploring and discovering the new country I’ve never been to. Poland is one of those countries that I have imperatively envy of a visit.
Some roads were connected with the rail of a train, which I find very cool. I had already witness once when we where in northern Belgium, a tram was crossing the road (horizontal way) it was really amazing to watch.
This time, we just passed by but there’s no train at that moment. Perhaps next time we will encounter that train passing through this rail. Who knows right?
Usually what you see on the road and its surroundings are cars, trees, and nature (normal sight). However, in this country, there are more sights to locate and admire.
A huge lake was just there waiting for me to take a photo of it. It looks magnificent sadly I can’t stop the car to get closer to it.
Almost there, Music Mode on
Yes! approaching the city of Wroclaw, yet I’m feeling sleepy four hours is a long trip to endure. I know you’ll ask me what did I do during that period of time? well, first I slept (as usual).
Second I was taking a lot of pictures using my phone (in highspeed mode) and third I was surfing online (within EU surfing is free). Lastly, at the same time, I have my personal playlist with me synchronized with the car.
I constantly listen to the French, Belgian, Spanish, and American artists. If you really wanna know my playlist, I can show some.
My favorite French singers/performers at the moment:
Christophe Maé, Matt Pokora, Joyce Jonathan, Tal, and Jenifer.
Animé is my life
On the other hand, I’m also reading “One Piece” scan online, and the story of Luffy is getting exciting in the Mirror World, I’m sure not all of you are a fan of Anime, (me? yes! yes! yes!)
Joylessly I don’t have Pachimari on our side to make our day lighter, If you have been following my road trips you’ll know who is Pachimari (our baby). at least I have my dobby (my hubby) on my side driving like a cool F1 racer with his Toyota Yaris.
Vanquishing the 4 hours lap
Finally, we are here!! I can’t wait to see the city of Wroclaw, watching at that plane on the sky moving like the bee, it reminds of one place where I always love to be (airport).
I hope my road trip adventure didn’t make you sleep, nor bored. You should watch out the next chapter of our trip. Exploring Wroclaw to the fullest.
