Pologne en stop, round 1

tentative avortée de voyage en pologne en stop...
les camions qui s'arretaient n'allaient pas assez loin, (seulement le nord de la slovaquie), je voulais pas me retrouver seul au milieu de nul part, je visais simplement les villes du sud de la pologne pour prendre un train en direction de Gdansk.
Mais l'attente fut amusante, je discutais avec les conducteur de camion de l'autre coté de la route, attendant pour la douane, et j'ai rencontré deux francais en erasmus a Budapest qui revenait d'Ukraine et moldavie et qui rentraient en stop a budapest!!

aborted try to hitchhike till Poland...
Trucks were not going further enough (only north of slovakia), and alone, I didnt want to try, I aimed directly  to reach cities in the polish border to take a train untill Gdansk. But actually, it was quite funny, I was speaking to truck drivers opposite the road who were waiting to pass the border and I also met two frenchs people in erasmus in Budapest. they were coming from Ukrainia and moldavia and were trying to come back in budapest by hitchhike! really funny cause we started to speak in english first, untill we realised we were both french... :D

coming soon >>>> ROUND 2 !!!!!!!!!!!!!

ps: OUI je sais, pas possible de voir de photos sur ce sujet, parce qu'étant donné que je ne suis pas allé, je n'ai pas pu prendre de photos !

trip with Amandine! (still transylvania) - fin devrier

coming soon... (more or less)


We left on saturday evening, In the train station we met this guy, coming from Kosovo (the new country you know!! :D ). He studied in Usa and was speaking perfect english, nice guy but he wasnt going in the same way like us :S ----Bracket----

then two noisy Romano-Hungarian teenagers in our compartment....

Arriving at 1h40 in the night at Sighisoara. walking around untill we found the hostel we reserved (in the citadel); nice place by the way, we internet and a kind of bar in a ceillar downstairs.

We visited the city on sunday and we also rent a car through two guys looking like being in the mafia! :S :D

Finally everything was ok and anyway this guys were in our guide book, we used the car to visit eastern country side around Sighisoara to try to visit Viscri but the road was soooo crap!! so we just went to a castle in Rupea!



Monday>> on the road again... (i was driving sometimes) for Biertan! passing through copsa mare (for the church) and then I drove to Sibiu. Arrival on Sibiu's suburbs, awful... loads of ugly buildings, industrial areas... certainly not what made this city being the European capital of culture 2007...

but after a couple of Kilometers, a very nice downtown appeared to us!

Trip Bucarest - Brasov

we decided last week to go in Bucarest! Two erasmus are now there to work (coralie and cristopher) so we decided to surprise them! coming without telling them, and we called when we arrived in the railway station, actually it was a bit "dangerous" but they were here!

We left on friday afternoon at 19h, spent 12hours of train to bucarest, very very very long ! but we did a party in the train so it was better!

with London, it's the second European capital I visit in One week! yeah!!

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On a decidé la semaine derniere d'aller a bucarest!, deux des erasmus du premier semestre travaillent là bas maintenant (coralie et cristopher) donc du coup on a decidé de leur faire une petite surprise! on a débarqué le samedi matin, et on a appelé directement de la gare de Bucarest, c'était un peu risqué, mais bon! du coup on a pas eu de problèmes!

On a quitté Oradea a 19h le vendredi, passé 12heures dans le train, (super super long...) mais bon on a fait la fête dans le train donc ca passait à peu prés!

deuxieme capitale que je visite en une semaine ! :P

sur le retour de Brasov....

Fete dans le train, autant que possible pour faire passer le temps, d'autant que dormir dans ces trains là est trés dur!
Mais du coup on a eu quelque problemes avec ce trajet!
on était supposé avec des reduction grace a notre carte d'etudiant, mais le carnet de reduction de certain d'entre nous (amandine et kristina, pas greg parce que lui c'était pire, il n'en avait meme pas...) étaient noté à l'année 2007, et comme semble-t-il les année scolaires ne durent que 1semestre pour les vendeur de ticket de train, ca leur posait probleme... va savoir pourquoi? donc du coup au debut ils ne voulaient pas nous donner les tickets (mais par exemple pour amandine, la vendeuse lui a directement donné le stylo pour qu'elle ecrive 2008...) aprés cela kristina a fait de meme et j'ai acheté mon ticket et celui de gregory sur ma carte (qui etait la seule ou était ecrit 2008 dés le depart, pour la seconde fois, va savoir pourquoi?)

MAIS! c'est TROP FACILE! il FALLAIT que greg perdent son ticket avant de rentrer dans le train!!
du coup il a capté ca aprés que le train soit parti... gros bordel, chercher le ticket partout, essayer de trouver une solution et finalement on a appelé le controleur! on a essayé de trouver une solution pour ne pas repayer le ticket, mais bon... controleur roumain, 3mots d'anglais, dur dur...
La partie amusante est la suivante, vu que greg n'était pas totalement en regle au niveau des papiers, il a fallut que JE lui donne mon ticket, et que JE me demerde avec le controleur pour ne pas payer! controleur qui bien sur ne voulait pas et m'a premierement proposé de payer un nouveau ticket pour 85 lei (20euros environ) OU de payer une amende plus tard de 195lei (50euros)!

heureusement sur mon passeport n'était ecrit que mon adresse francaise donc j'ai choisis la solution "culot-je donne mon passeport-de toute facon-il oseront pas envoyer d'amende en france" et aprés avoir etait chiant au possible en disant a tout va qu'on était etudiant et qu'on avait pas d'argent, le tout 36 fois par minutes, il nous a laissé tranquille, et on a pas payé plus que l'ont ne devait!

finalement le deuxieme controleur était beaucoup plus flexible et en 1minute, le probleme etait réglé!
tsss... va savoir pourquoi? ;D

en meme temps, il y avait aussi l'air d'y avoir quelques problemes avec les mecs du compartiment d'à coté, pour preuve la police est venue et en a embarqué quelques uns, menottes et compagnie...
qui sait? peut etre que c'est ce qui nous a vallu de pas "trop" nous faire ennuyer!

enfin bon... au final, c'était vraiment un super trip!
bcp de bons souvenir! arrivée à Oradea a 7h du mat, pas trés frais, dodo jusqu'au milieu de l'aprem! ;D

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On the way back from Brasov...
partying in the train, as long as possible to waste time! sleeping in this kind of train is really hard!
and actually we had some problems with the ticket. we were supposed to have a discount price because we are student, but in the student book of some of us (not me OBVIOUSLY :D) it was written 2007 (then supposed not to be available...), so first they didnt want to give us ticket with discount, but for example one of the saleswoman just gave my friend a pen for her to change the 2007 into 2008.... and after it was ok... (romania is sometimes a strange country... sometimes flexible, sometimes not... ) we finaly managed to get the ticket, the girls changing the year and gregory who had no student book get his one thanks to me...

BUT, this is TOO EASY! gregory "HAD TO" loose his ticket before entering in the train !!!!! lol
then he realised it after the train started.... big mess.... searching everywhere.... searching some solutions...
soooo we called the controller, tryed to managed to get a new ticket without paying nothing! but the funny part is that because gregory didnt have all the papers for the discount, I gave him MY TICKET, and had to argue with the controller (saying that I lost my ticket taking out my mobile phone blah blah blah blah), who of course didnt want to give me a new ticket... instead of that, He nicely proposed me fist to pay a new one for 85lei (22euros) OR to have a penalty and pay 195lei (52euros)

Thanks to my passport everything finished well, because there was only my french adress on it, and we were so boring (like "no money" 30times per minutes, "STUDENTTTT STUDENNNTTT" 20times and "my passport is very important, you're not gonna take it with you!!" only one time, after he gave up) that he decided not to do anything and let it go, (the second controler later was more flexible, we just explained the problem and she said "ok", in one minute, it was solved...)

meanwhile, there were also some problems in our part of train, we saw later the police passing and some guys with handcuffs :S
maybe it helped us a bit not to have more problem than there were already in the train!

we finaly arrived safe in oradea, around 7in the morning, and slep intill middle of the afternoon!!
well... a very very nice trip!!
(now I have to write all of this in french... tell me good luck!!)

thanks for tryin' to read till the end!
the story we had was a bit confusing, so the way I told it was as well!

our Hitch hiking trip in Budapest, the Best ever!!!

Oh gosh!! this trip is in the top 3 of our nicest trips and parties!!!
the experience to Hitch hike abroad was a very good idea from our friends from poland (who are confirmed hitch hikers and really good travellers! :D)
we spent from fryday afternoon to sunday in budapest (I mean it was that we were supposed to do but me and my pair Martyna had some "problems" for the come back, I mean we didn't find any car, nobody stopped for us, so we spent one more day there and came back by minibus, by the way, because we were the first "team" arriving on friday, we had the longest trip! "nananananère!")

to introduce you this quickly, we took a taxi from Oradea to the border (only 5 or 10 km and 30lei of taxi, so a little bit less than 10euros, not so expensive and almost necessary because romanian people often ask for monney to hitch hikers, so that's why..)

almost all the teams found a car during the first or the second hour (we were 4 teams of 2 persons, with each time one boy and one girl) and with only one car we were at budapest in few hours. Anyway one of our polish friend prepared for us 4pages of maps, essentials informations and all what we needed for this trip;
we booked for a Hostel in the center of budapest, you know, the kind of hostel which is especially for young peoples, we payed about 7euro for each night, sooooo if you know cheaper, let me know it!! lol

for the rest, just watch the photos. and if you find that it is not a really nice city, just come and take a look. I was really impressed by everything in the city, so beautiful, so nice climate, so enormous! and because almost all the nice building are lighten up during the night, it's also very nice to visit after 4 o'clock (yep during the winter and because budapest is at the top east of the time zone, the sunset is very very very early! :S)

Just watch:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Oh mon dieu, ce sejour est vraiment dans le top 3 de nos meilleurs sortie et soiree! L'experience de faire du stop a l'etranger etait une super idee de nos potes polonais (qui sont des autostopper confirmé et de sacré voyageurs!). On est resté a budapest de vendredi apres midi a dimanche (enfin... c'etait ce que l'on etait supposé faire)

now our trip in "chouncouyouch" (this is the pronounciation...)

something like one week after, we planed a trip in some caves close to Oradea, 54km exactly but 1h30 maybe more to go there, trains in romania are very slow... I won't make a lot of part for this topic, just will introduce you this with some photos, no more!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Une semaine apres, nous avons preparé une sortie dans des grottes pas loin d'oradea, 54km environ mais 1h30 de train, peut etre plus pour y aller, les trains ici en roumanie sont relativement lents.... je ne vais pas faire plusieurs parties pour ce sujet (reference a greg qui a tout decomposé), je vous presente juste ca en qque photos, pas plus!
