Travelling is Fun

Mark Twain: Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime. (The Innocents Abroad, 1869)

Hello fellow travellers,

I like to travel independently throughout various parts of the world. When preparing my trips I often use information provided by other travellers on the internet - to repay this help I offer here reports of my trips for others to use.

Please understand that all the information provided is highly subjective and based on my personal values - please take it as such, I do not want to go into any disputations regarding my observations.

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

Travelling is my passionate hobby and I have been travelling as much as possible all my life. I have been always trying to learn from different cultures in various parts of the world and find out how their values and life style influence their real life and especially their feel of personal satisfaction.

To give you an idea what kind of experience I have been through I have put together a list of my trips so that you can judge validity of my tips and observations for you.

In my trip reports I would like to offer readers some general information and observations regarding significant differences from situation found in other parts of the world. The purpose is to give a perspective to a traveller, familiar with certain parts of the world, about some differences he/she should prepare for when visiting some specific area yet unknown to him/her. I hope my experience may be of some value to the readers. Besides, I will also include some basic facts and recommendations regarding logistic.

You will not find any pictures on my pages. I have left them out intentionally as my pages should just bring some practical hints regarding the given places. There are zillions of pictures of every place of the world all over the internet and I would consider it badgering to add some more. If you want to see some pictures just type the place name to the Google and you will get full choice.

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

As you may have noticed in my trip list, since 1999 I have been travelling mostly independently. I am always preparing my trips for quite some time and gather information about the places to be visited - it keeps me happy in between my trips anyway. As I have never found enough time before my trips to really go through the information gathered about each place, I always put it more or less unsorted into a single document that I print out and read it during the trip. These documents still sit in my computer and if anybody is interested I can send them on request. But please understand that the longer time has passed since the trip date the more outdated some information in these documents becomes. Also, please be warned that all the information mentioned have been downloaded from the internet for my private use only and may be a subject of the copyright - please keep that in mind and use it accordingly.

I have a separate document prepared for each of the individual places visited (as listed in the trip route descriptions) and some of these documents are quite large (several MBytes). So, if you are asking for the documents, please be specific about the places you would like to receive the information about. In case you would like to have majority or all of the documents about a specific country, it would be quite helpful if you can provide information about the limits set by your email provider.

In case you would be interested in the documents mentioned above or if you feel I may be able to help you, feel free to contact me on the following e-mail address:

Nevertheless, in these times of stupid spam messages overflowing our mailboxes I may easily overlook your message. To get an attention please start the subject of your message with the following text: 

              Travelling advice needed



On the other hand, please note that I cannot be contacted through any of the social networks (incl. Facebook and LinkedIn). I have decided to stay away from those as I consider them too shallow and time consuming to bother.

 


I hope I would be able to help.


Happy travels to everyone,

 

Vaclav
