I’ve been in central Europe for the last three weeks, catching up on people, places, and stuff I haven’t been around for some time.
In between visiting my friends, I checked out some galleries, joined performances,
.. and enjoyed some music. Alternative, classical, electronic, rock… all sorts.
I visited more concerts within the last month than during the half a year I spent in the United Kingdom. A fun fact, the best was a performance of a UK based artist...
And, I went on a road trip to see my family members. The journey started at the Prague main railway station, often called Wilson’s Station. It’s a super cool structure built in 1871.
A train offers better views than a bus on an interstate.
The outlooks weren't only on cities or rural landscapes, but on some neat industrial too.
One thing I love about travelling is the fact one can learn an insane amount of stuff hands-on, usually without any big effort. This time I learned that railroads in Czechia have an operating line speed of 160 Km/h (100 mph), and the trains use most of it.
A major part of the New Year's Eve celebration in pretty much every European city is shooting tons of fireworks. Photographing them was another thing I planned to catch up on since I skipped all the action during the Bonfire Night. However, I didn't. I went to another visit, and it was such a good time that I opted to stay with the company instead of going downtown and watching the show. All I took was a few quick handheld shots through the window, and I was ok with that.
Meanwhile, I went on several trips into nature all around. Here are unsorted shots from shorter walks; some longer hikes will be coming soon as separate posts..
