So. Warsaw... I've been trying to whittle down the number of pictures so I wasn't just dumping loads here, but it's been difficult! It was a great trip - the football club I support is taking part in a European competition for lower league, fan-owned clubs and this was our first match. I'd never been to Poland before, so it was a no-brainer all round, really.

There are a couple of SAK photos in there as well. :D

























































There was a definite contrast between new town and old town, but it was lovely. I'm not sure what I expected, but it certainly wasn't what I saw. A lovely city, I'd highly recommend it. :tu:

Gentlemen; I love this thread too! So many beautiful photos!
 :like: :like: :like:

Hey Echotech: The presence of dogs is amusing - at least that's how I feel.
What an impressive nature, so different from my surroundings. Thanks for the beautiful pictures!


Hey Michael: train pictures! I love pictures of public transport. Anytime and anywhere! And the same with old towns!
This is almost a whole city trip of an impressive metropolis that you show us, thank you very much.

And did you win?

As I said, we went hiking in the swiss alps for a few days. We resided in a small, simple hotel in the middle of Meiringen. Very close to the cable car that takes you 440 meters higher to Reuti.


From here we want to hike 1200 meters up to the Planplatten.
The path goes through there and right at the top, right up there, we want to go...


Finally out of the trees, I love to hike over the tree line and the higher you get, the better the view:








Almost there...


Phew, Finally done! I had to find out that my condition is not the best. But the view is reward enough. The feeling cannot be adequately captured with photos.

Okay, where do I start... (you guys have been busy again  ;)).

John, you know we don't mind pics without a SAK (or other multitool) in them, this topic is more about the vacation feeling as it is about "there must be a SAK in every pic", if you can combine the two, great, if not, still great 👍.

And the pics you guys post are always a pleasure.

John posts pics with that spring/summer vibe just as things are getting dark and gloomy over here.  And I can only dream of visiting such a beautiful country, and the vastness of the Outback is just mind boggling for us Europeans (and let's not forget... doggy pics!! We do enjoy doggy pics 😉).

Peter posts pics of my beloved Switzerland, one of the most beautiful countries in the world, where I had one of the best vacations of my life (and as a Vic/Wenger fan, it's just a special place to be).

And Michael, I've visited the UK several times, from daytrips in school, to a week long vacation with the tent when I was 16 years old.  The history your country has to offer, it's a dream for a nerd history buff like myself.

Sadly enough it's been a while since I've been there, but only recently I've bought a hiking guide for the region Cornwall-Devon.  I found it at a local outdoorshop, had a look at it and just had to take it home (all this Covid-19 stuff, and the lack of travel/vacation because of it, has made me even more eager to go on vacation, see new places...). But for now, your pics are the best way to get the vacation feeling.

Thank you gentlemen for keeping this place alive  :hatsoff:.

Edit: And just as I wanted to post this, I get the notice that someone else posted something here... Just had a glimpse at the new pics, wow...

I'm going to stop my rambling now, post this, and have a good look at the new pics.

Cheers my friends  :cheers:.

I'm a definite rail nerd, I like public transport in general but I prefer it if it runs on rails; trains, trams, streetcars and so on!

Glad you liked the photos. :tu:

We did win. 6-1. Turns out there's a massive difference between the 7th level of English football and the 7th level of Polish football!

Great pictures of your own there mate, excellent stuff. I do miss Switzerland, although I don't miss the time I hiked through the alps!

Thanls Eric. I've seen a lot of England, but am currently trying to set foot in the remaining counties that I've never been to before. I'm counting both the post-1974 administrative areas and the historic counties and I've got 5 left of each to do. I just decided I need to see as much of the place as possible to appreciate it more.

If we're going UK wise, that's a bigger challenge going forward...

But yeah, I know what you mean - after the last two years I've been desperate to get away. I struck lucky in managing to get to Warsaw after 2 or 3 trips being cancelled.

@ Eric: Thank you, and as already mentioned so often; it is always a pleasure for me here.  :cheers:


@ Michael: fully with you, everything that rolls on rails is always good.  :cheers:
...and steamships! :dd:
But cable cars and vintage buses are nice too.  :D

I also miss just traveling somewhere. The more I enjoy going on excursions in my area.
Yesterday i was at zurich main station and took a few train pics for you.  ;)
There was nothing special there, but I also like these newer train compositions.

Oh My God...  :sa:

Even your trains look spotless, I mean, do they go through a train-wash each time they enter or exit the station or what?

Loving those pics my friend, thanks for sharing them  :cheers:.

Thanks guys, I'm happy if you like it.

Eric, once a week on average, every Swiss Federal Railways passenger train rolls through the washing line.


But now I'm bothering you with even more mountain hiking pics.
This time from a simple hiking trail from the Planplatten down to Käserstatt.

End of work yesterday in Urnäsch. Enjoy the evening atmosphere for a moment and then drive home to the swiss underworld *, where the sun never shines... ::)



Show content
* the flatter areas of switzerland are very often covered by a thick layer of fog at this time of the year.
There is also something nice about this foggy mood, but at the moment it makes me rather depressed

I can honestly say I've never seen anything like that before  :D.

Thanks for sharing your pics here my friends, stay safe guys :salute:.

Wow, I would love to have a few weeks there myself as well mate  :o.

Beautiful scenery, not too many people around it seems,  just the way I like it  :tu:.

It's always great to leave things behind for a couple of days and unwind. God knows we need a bit of that over here as well.

I'm happy you shared your pics here, stay safe my friend  :salute:.

Thanks Eric first proper break I’ve had out of Sydney for 3.5 years and it’s been fantastic, big drive home tomorrow, with plenty of breaks 9-10 hours

It’s a lovely spot as is all the coast and bush up here, different pace of life as they say

Some cracking pictures since I last posted here. :tu:

Managed to get out for a walk this afternoon, although it was dull, grey and slightly damp.
















Hope you've all had a good Christmas. :cheers:
