Dec 29, 2022 12:00 AM Gdansk to Warsaw to Athens...

Gdansk to Warsaw to Athens... You know that I am the budget traveller, looking for the last expensive air ticket solution. For the flight to Saudi Arabia I found last expensive flight of Aegean Airlines. But they operate from Warsaw! In the late morning I boarded in Gdansk an express train to Warsaw (they open the sale exactly one month ahead and on that day you can catch the best offers) It is less than 3 hours ride now. Then from Warsaw Central station I took 175 bus to the airport. Nice Christmas decoration is still here. I am waiting for my flight to Athens, where I will have just one hour for the connection to Jeddah. I hope that the flights will be on time!

Dec 28, 2022 12:00 AM I am flying to Saudi Arabia!

I am flying to Saudi Arabia! I'm off to welcome the New Year in Saudi Arabia! In 2007, when tourists were not allowed in this country, I managed to enter Arabia only for 3 days to see Jeddah and the country's biggest tourist attraction - Madain Saleh. It is now easy to get a visa to the kingdom and I am going there to see more.
As you can see on the map my trip will be combined with a week-long cruise on the Red Sea, and I intend to cover the overland route by bus and a rental car. I'm going to stay with members of international open door organizations... If there will be free access to the internet you will find "hot" messages from the road, as always in English, in my travel log


Dec 25, 2022 12:00 AM White Christmas Day in Norway

White Christmas Day in Norway That's what they are singing about in the songs: white snow around, thick, silver hoarfrost on the branches of all trees and the landscape like from the fairy-tale. After breakfast my son Adam took me and my grandsons to the central Oslo to visit Christmas Market. There are many lights and tempting smells. Kids are enjoying bright merry-go-round and joyful music, free skate-ring is also wayting for them.. Like the kids we boarded Oslo-Eye to have for the moment bird-eye view of the university and all seasonal attractions on the square... Wonderful Christmas Day!

Dec 24, 2022 12:00 AM Christmas Eve in Oslo

Christmas Eve in Oslo My direct flight to Norway departed from Gdansk at 10.30 am. But this was low-cost airline, flying not to Oslo Gardemoen capital airport but to Torp (they use terminology Oslo Torp, but in fact this airport is located 2 hours drive from capital's center. I was forced to take a train departing from Torp station. Shuttle bus will take you from the terminal to the station. What a beautiful winter scenery! They have really white Christmas here! I changed the train at beautifuly decorated (picture) Oslo S (Central) station and after 3 pm I met my son in the suburbs. We had really nice evening at the Christmas tree, enjoying traditional dishes, singing Polish Christmas carols and receiving gifts. Really white, lovely Christmas Eve!

Dec 23, 2022 12:00 AM Merry Christmas dear Friends!

Merry Christmas dear Friends! Dear Friends worldwide.... Merry Christmast and Happy, peaceful and full of interesting travels New Year 2023!
I decided to fly to look for white Christmas to Oslo, to my dearest son Adam and his family living there... It is only 1,5 hour direct flight to get there. In Gdansk it is grey with temperatires 5-6 deg Celsius. I hope to find the snow in Norway! Enjoy your Christmas time!

Dec 21, 2022 12:00 AM One more interesting voyage is completed!

One more interesting voyage is completed! Air France send their big 777 to take me and other travellers from Santo Domingo to Paris. The plane landed in Santo with little delay but they were working without any enthusiasm and finally we started to Paris with one hour delay. Before during boarding I (why me?) had very unpleasant control performed by the guys from Dominican anti-drug brigade. Never more!
Thanks God flying to Europe we had tail wind moving us as fast as 1050 kms/hour. We landed in Charles de Gaulle 30 minutes after schedule. And... there was security control, immigration control, airport train from terminal E to F. I was running not to be late for my flight to Amsterdam. OK, this flight was also delayed so I boarded with the last passengers. In Amsterdam it was much better: I had even a time to shave myself in the toilet.. We landed in Gdansk at 5.30 pm. Only 3 deg Celsius. No snow! Uuuu! I expected to have white Christmas this year!

Dec 20, 2022 12:00 AM How to get to the airport?

How to get to the airport? It is the problem, because Santo Domingo Las Americas airport is some 90 kms from Caleta. My black-skin host wanted to milk me: first of all he wanted 10 dollars extra for check-uot at 3 pm. Then he offered me private transfer by taxi to the airport for 90 USD. Sorry. I took the 1-hour walk to carretera Santo Domingo. There is something like little terminal of Sichoem bus company.
Nice, a/c bus took me for 250 pesos - 5 dollars to the outskirts of Boca Chica town. Driver left me there and I took a taxi for 8 USD to the airport. I was on time to check-in but why they were studying my passport so long time? Too many exotic stamps? Ok, but they do not weighted my heavy carry-on luggage! Santa Clause we as passing by when I was waiting for my flight to the snowy Europe. I am going home for Christmas!

Dec 19, 2022 12:00 AM Wedding on the beach

Wedding on the beach Caleta, where I stay is a suburb of La Romana. The only La Romana beach is located here. I took a walk to the centre of the village where tiny shops and home eaterias are located. I found barber shop - easy recognizable by loud, crazy music. How much for the haircut? 250 pesos! It is like 5 dollars. I agree and after 20 minutes the haicut was done... Then I went to the beach where local middle class enjoy the sand, warm sea and the fresh fish brought from the sea on the small boats. There is a long row of the seafood restaurants under the palms. Every restaurant offers his loud music and the result is great cacophony... At the last restaurant on the beach the wedding ceremony took place. I had the opportunity to see, how do they celebrate. Lucky me!

Dec 18, 2022 12:00 AM Disembarking in La Romana

Disembarking in La Romana It was sunrise time when we were entering tiny port of La Romana in Dominican Republic. I started a day with solid breakfast, put an extra sandwich into my bag, and at 10 am I was ready to kiss my friends and go ashore. The same terminal with palm trees and duty free shop. The same cafe, where you must order something to receive the password to wifi. Then there is immigration control: forst they ask you if you stop in Daminicana! Say no! I am only in transit othervose you will pay for carta de turista. Then they put stamp into passport - bring blue form filled up. Customs at the next table just collect the white forms. Taxis are waiting. Rates are published on board - to the city 2 km costs 15 USD. I made a better choice walking in the sun. But it was necessary to take taxi later tothe sururbs of Caleta, where I stay on the provate house, paying 27 USD per night for modest apartment with kitchen, batch and fridge. Sunny 29 deg Celsius.
Let's have a rest!

Dec 17, 2022 12:00 AM Christmas show at sea

Christmas show at sea Today is our last day aboard "Pacifica". Tomorrow we will say goodbye to this cozy ship... Everybody is packing-up his stuff. Bot there are also attractions: sun, music, dancing, meetings new friends... In the evening they invited us to the theater for the lovely Christmas show full of music, ballet dancing, video and ligh effects. I had really good time! I also meet the hostess of the English -speaking passengers. Halyna is really charming person, trying to simplify our life onboard and help everybody. She is from Ukraine. I will keep her in my best memories...
