Trip to Prague :) Have you ever been here?

Do you know the place called Wrocław? It’s about time to get to know a little about Prague. It’s a capitol city of Czech Republic. I had never been interested in visiting Eastern European countries, but recently I changed my point of view. Those countries are beautiful and definitely worth visiting. Moreover, nowadays it’s very easy and cheap to get everywhere if planned wisely.

This time I traveled from Warsaw with Ecolines. It was the first time I used this carrier and I was extremely satisfied. Good service, quite comfortable and extra small screen with some movies and music.

I arrived to Prague in the morning. The bus station called Florenc was somewhere nearby the old town, so I decided to go on foot to explore as much as possible of the place. I walked past the Old Town which was a very beautiful part of the city. The big square in the middle of which was a big statue and around big and very old buildings. Each of them stunning and unique, obviously old, but in good condition.

Walking in the straight line I arrived to the Vltava river. The river separating the city is something unusual for me, maybe because of that I love to admire bridges. Prague have got few of them where the most famous is the Charles bridge. When I look at any bridge I love to admire its original shape,  its enormous size. Bridges are a big achievement of humanity and is a very useful invention. It connects two banks of the river providing a safe and short passage.

I took my time to admire a castle on the other side, a big park, buildings and of course bridges. The sky was blue that day with the Sun shining from above. The perfect day to take some pictures.

As I was still with my luggage I headed to my hostel to drop it off there and meet my friends. We arrived to this city to go to the club to listen to the DJ Andrea Oliva, but about that later 😉

Me and my few friends who arrived from Wroclaw with BlaBlaCar met up at our hostel located about 10min walk from the centre. The perfect place to be. We had a room only for four of us. Unfortunately one of our friends decided to come late and booked his accommodation in a different place, which wasn’t an obstacle to have a great fun together.

After having some delicious local food in a nearby restaurant we decided to go for a walk. We were taking pictures and having laugh. On the Charles Bridge which I mentioned before was a lot of tourist enjoying a walk and taking photos. We were no different. I don’t remember how it happened, but probably because of our photographic passion, we met 3 Russian girls passing by. It would had been only a short encounter if not our Ukrainian friend who started to have a chat in Russian with them. This way they accompanied us on our walk through the hill and the park. Finally they arranged to smoke shisha together just before we go to the club. This way we went back to the hostel, had some rest and after 8pm we went to meet up with 3 ladies. They took us to some fancy Russian place, one of them studies here, so knows Prague very well. We had few cocktails and smoked a lot of shisha. This way I was unable to speak with them in Russian as my had was too dizzy, so I just enjoyed nice music. We headed to the club where we stayed till the morning. Actually Ukrainian friend left early, because didn’t like the music and one other friend was kidnapped by some girl, so left few hours before the end of the party. He missed some great music, but like we got to know later h had a good time too.

The funniest part of all that weekend in Prague was of course a love story. One Russian fell for one my friend and an Ukrainian boy was talking all the time with the other one. We agreed to go out with them on Sat night, the next night. ok. If they like each other why not. Unfortunately it wasn’t so sweet as it could be. The third Russian started to fancy the Ukrainian boy, so the second one girl suddenly went home in a bad mood as the boy changed his object of interest. When finally when everything was sweet and cheesy he showed his wedding ring?! to apologize?! I don’t understand that behaviour till that moment as the second Russian got upset, angry, or who knows what else and decided to go home, so finally we stayed in the club, enjoying great electronic house music until the end, after being part of unnecessary affair disappointment :/

Overall Prague left on us a very good impression. We’ve seen many beautiful places, we tried some local food – I liked the sweet dough which was round, big and empty inside. I bought it filled with nutella. I loved it! Next time I have an opportunity to eat it I would definitely buy it. Go to Prague people, discover the city and have fun with people around you. Just don’t break women hearts if you’re married. I don’t recommend that.

Traveling by plane

I like to travel. What about you? Traveling by plane is the most convenient for me and if you wonder why I will share with you my point of view. Many of you have got means of transport like a bicycle and a car or traveled by train to some distant destination. I am sure you enjoyed most of your travels, but don’t you think that traveling by plane is the quickest, the safest, the most reliable? I have many friends who’s never been on the plane and all I hear from them is ‘Ahhh! turbulences! I’m afraid of that!’ hahaha

At the beginning of this month I traveled from Malaga to Warsaw. These two cities are very far from each other. The first thing that I needed to do was get to the airport. Usually there is many buses which I can choose from. Once I am on the airport I sit down and watch people. I like to watch through the big windows of the waiting hall planes taking off. Sometimes when the flight is at the unusual hour or I slept not enough before my travel I use the time I need to wait for a short nap. Of course having a nap isn’t the safest option as it’s easy to oversleep. I recommend to set an alarm clock which will ring some minutes before opening of the gate. If you have someone traveling with you you may ask your companion to do the same.

Once on the plane I relax again an if I am at least a little tired after my trip to the airport I let my body to fall asleep. If the flight lasts more than 3h then rarely I manage to sleep all duration of the flight. Otherwise I wake up when the pilot starts to prepare to land and communicate to fasten the seat belt.

I am rested again and then the final bit of the travel left. It’s very convenient to fly, as opposite to driving, there’s less responsibility and the experienced pilots care to take me safely home. I feel very comfortable while traveling by plane. I hope it would stay like that forever. I recommend all of you to try if you haven’t done so.

Modlin airport to Warsaw – how it may be done

So you decided to come to beautiful Warsaw and because you’ve heard it is very cheap in Poland. On top of that the flight was a bargain. Don’t tell me that once you landed you started to feel lost? How to get from the Modlin airport to Warsaw? Nothing to worry. It is not a rocket science. I will explain it to you in a few words.

travel modlin airport to warsaw - trainThere’s 3 main ways to get from Modlin airport to Warsaw: taxi, ModlinBus and by train. I wrote them from the fastest and the most expensive to the slowest and the chapest.

Of course to get a taxi is the easiest way to move around. You won’t need to wait for departure and it will take you to the preferred address directly. However, you will need to pay the most. Probably between 100 and 200 polish zloties.

Second option is ModlinBus. It runs frequently – once per hour – and you travel by coach directly from the airport to the Palace of Culture and Science in the city centre of Warsaw. It cost about 33zl and it takes 40 minutes to get to the destination.

There’s one more and the cheapest – 17zl – way of transport which I usually use, because I Modlin airport to Warsaw timetableneed to travel either to my friends in Warsaw or to my hometown. If you need to travel outside of Warsaw you may like this option. First of all you should go to information desk or to the big touch screen where you will be able to get more information about buses/trains you need to catch. Once you know where you’re going you start your travel in a bus which takes you in 10 minutes to the nearest train station. There you take one of the trains which take you to the city centre of Warsaw and in the city centre you may use any public transport for 1h what is included in your 17zl ticket. 3 in 1 🙂 Cool, but takes about 70 minutes to get to the Warsaw city centre.

Travel Granada Malaga Warsaw – how?

It’s Christmas time and recently many people decided to travel to see their relatives. I was not different. I made a decision to travel quite late, because in mid December, but first what I did was to look through flights. To travel Granada Malaga Warsaw that’s the most convenient way. As I booked not many days in advance I needed to pay €110. It wasn’t cheap, but sometimes planes change in the last moment and there is no other choice.

As I live in Granada I needed to find some transport to the airport. I didn’t have big choice. One option was to travel with someone who posted an announcement on BlaBlaCar. Quite a lot of people travel every day, so there’s quite a big choice of drivers available. Just be sure that they are able to pass through the airport and travel at an hour convenient for you.  If there are only people who go to the city centre of Malaga you may get to the airport by train for €1,80 which takes you there in 10 minutes.

The other option is to travel by bus. They aren’t as frequent as BlaBaCar, so you must plan your departure much in advance. Travel from the city centre of Granada to Malaga’s airport takes about 1:30h and bus stops to drop off passengers in the city of Malaga. However recently I’ve heard that some of them go directly to the airport. That might be only in busy periods like Christmas. Buses are big and comfortable and are on time.

Travel Granada Malaga Warsaw

When you finally get to the airport head to the terminal 3 where is security control. Once you pass it head to your gate. It takes 4h to get to Warsaw. Actually I flew to an airport which is located a bit outside of Warsaw. There’s Chopin’s airport in the centre. If your plane took you to the one outside called Modlin read my guide how to get out of there 🙂 Warsaw Modlin – what’s next?
