Indeed. Mistral, Balaguère, Haize Hegoa, Aspr, Halny, Jauk, Bura, Bora, Sonda, Puelche, Chanduy, Chinook, Diablo, Santa Ana, call it as you want, it's a foehn wind.

Yes, I've picked some prospectus of this Amber trail while being in Czech republic, and I've read about it in Poland too. From what I remember it runs N-S in central Europe.

Maybe not a very good idea to give them some ideas... :lol: :lol: :lol:


Forgive the one who found this map, he was drunk also during the evening he posted it.

It seems like you've strayed off route. Do you think you could remove your post and open your own thread on Vodkastock etc.?
Thanks in advance :wink:

Sorry Jacek, was a wee bit drunk when I was on SP yesterday and now it doesn't allow me to kill that post...

Anyways, had good fun at beer/weedstock... Unfortunately, or maybe very fortunately, only very little wódka there...

Cheers,
Clint.

That's OK.

Actually, the Presidential Palace in Warsaw is Russian again :(

but this thread is supposed to be about the MOUNTAINS, :) namely the Carpathians, the mountains of the Bohemian Massif and a few hills nearby.

Nah, not really... The current village which functions as Capital is still firmly Central European, right on the top of the "L" the border between the two runs about 50 kilometres east of the Wisła, roughly north-south along the 22nd degree east longtitude... I'd still recommend moving the residence of Bronek, as well as the Sejm and Senate some 300 kilometres south-south-west for "safety reasons" because you did bring up a valid point... :lol: :lol: :lol:

True, lets talk about my record-breaking ascent of Góra Świętej Anny, the highest mountain in the Silesian Highlands on my way west last week... From the bottom to the top in mere minutes... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Where does East Central Europe stops south Yatsek ? Now I'm afraid my forthcoming dinaric posts don't fit in this thread. In the other case you should apologize towards SP mountaineers of former Yougoslavia, as far as I know Đeravica is taller than Gerlach by one meter ;) (and we skip Triglav not to offend BK)

That's the hill where the A4 goes three lanes with the petrol station on the pass ? Heard it's nice to ride by bike, I must give it a try...

Pssssssssst..... Quiet... Don't wake the wolves... But yeah, 150 all the way up, and hit 200 on the way down...

Hooligan... :lol: Try to stay as far right as possible though there, the 110 km/h speed limit on that stretch is regularly ignored...

I'm afraid you're wrong. It's not the residence but the residents who are to be moved east.

At least they speak english here :-)

That's why new threads - IN ENGLISH - will do. One about the mountains of the Balkans and the other about the great hills (and weeds and other things) around the North Sea and the Baltic (HOL-POL-BAL team? :lol: ), such as this 8)

Yatsek, don't your Słowiński pictures rather belong to the North Europe entity, where my Rügen album was moved after protests ?

As for a new South-East-Central Europe thread, I think it makes no point. Here is the Wild-East thread, readable in English as Sjarelkwint well underlined, and that's all ! :D

I suppose Jacek wants to keep the hooligans out of the wild-east thread...
