Boeing 747-400

Few photos of Boeing 747, aircraft which is still a very amazing giant. I remember flying it for the first time back when Pan Am was still in the business of air travel. Thirty some years later, Pan Am is gone but 747 is still flying!

Airbus A380-800, the not so new flying elephant (Winter 2016)

So, here is another workhorse of German airline Lufthansa! The old Jumbo Jet is being replaced by the new flying elephant – the Airbus A380-800. The size of this aircraft is mindblowing and the idea that it can move between 500 – 800 people is also amazing. The Airbus corporation answer to the Boenig’s 747…

Stuck at the autobahn (Summer 2010)

Greetings! All European travelers know that the German authobahn is a marvel of transportation genius. There are parts where you can go as fast as you can and it is fun. The first autobahn was constructed in Germany during the time of the Weimar Republic. Since 1920 German engineers created more than 13,000 km of…

Behind the scenes at Frankfurt International (Winter 2016)

Greetings! Here I go again – overthinking the air travel or maybe not. Some folks look at travel as a way to move between places. I am little different – I like to be somehow an active participant in the process – not just “a human cargo”. There is plenty to see in any airport…

Long day in Frankfurt Airport (Winter 2016)

Greetings! I noticed that I had posted plenty about my travel destinations. The places where you want to or have to go. However, what happens to the time we spend in-between: after we leave home and before we reach our destination? That is a very interesting question and in my opinion, it should be addressed….

Zugspitze Bahn (Winter 2012)

Few years ago I had a pleasure to work and live in Garmisch-Partenkierchen, located in the German region Bavaria – one of the most beautiful places in the world (in my humble opinion). The city of Garmisch-Partenkierchen is a true marvel, which offers tourists and residents opportunities which are mind blowing. Each season of the…

Trams in Nuremberg (Winter 2011)

Greetings! I realized how beautiful public transportation is after posting yesterday’s blog. So, I decided to compose a new project connected with public transportation. The first one is from Germany, the city of Nuremberg, famous for amazing Christmas market and awesome historical downtown. Here is the black and white tram in front of the main…

They are part of original and wonderful climate of south Germany, together with leather hosen, beer and sausages. Walking around Garmisch-Partnekierchen, or GAPA, you can enjoy the numerous murals describing…

Two Days in Berlin, Germany (Winter 2015)

In January of 2015 I had a chance to travel to Germany and spent two days in the capital city, Berlin. I was very happy to spent some time in Berlin because this city can be considered as a cultural, political and historical center of the “old continent”, Europe. I was also aware that to…

Old Cars in Garmisch-Partenkierchen, Germany (Fall 2013)

I was never a fan of old automobiles. However, during a nice walk in September of 2013 in Garmisch-Partenkierchen, Germany, I noticed a couple of cars parked near a gas station. Someone took a real good care to restore and maintain them and somehow they became a part of the beautiful Bavarian scenery. Please see few…
