איפה לאכול בפופראד – Poprad?

תמיד ממליץ לגיד ולדבר לפחות כמה מילים עם מקומיים, לא בהכרח שהם ידעו אנגלית, אבל זו התחלה טובה.

בא לכם לשאול מישהו איפה לאכול בפופראד אז תשאלו

Kde se mohu najíst v Popradu?

קדה סה מוהו נאייסט וה פופראדו

על פופראד ממש בקטנה!

העיר פופראד לא ממש מעניינת אבל המיקום שלה מאוד אסטרטגי, על הכביש המהיר D1 מחברת מזרח ומערב סלובקיה, וגם מחברת בין הונגריה ופולין.

נקודה מעולה לטיולי כוכב באזור של גן העדן הסלובקי, הרי הטטרה הגבוהים, הרי הטטרה הנמוכים, ושמורת פייאניני.

שדה תעופה קטנצ’יק ממש ליד העיר, כמה דקות במונית ב 5 יורו.

רכבת, רכבת חשמלית ואוטובוסים. מה שעושה אותה חביבה על האנשים שאוהבים לטייל באזור ללא רכב שכור. אל תדאגו גם בתי מלון, אכסניות ודירות יש בשפע. עם כל מה שפופראד מציעה,היא לא ממש פופלרית. מה ולמה אני כשאיר את זה בצד.

עם זאת אני בטוח אף אחד לא יגיד לא, לפחות לעצירת מנוחה ואוכל.

קצת תמונות לפני…

20150511_101031Two breakfast meals &  Two coffees with an ice-cream, sitting in some restaurant at the Jewish quarter in Krakow. That’s my way how to start a new day.. This day I’m going to spend with my friend.. After the short walk in Old town we decided to sit, have a beer, chill and feel the great atmosphere around us..

When was your first time in Krakow?
“A long time ago, early 2014 (January), when I had the first semester break and holidays from my studies in Israel.
Why Poland? The main reason was to visit my friend Joe which I met at my Haifa pub crawls in Israel. Since this time we became a good friends and with time I also met his polish girlfriend which came from time to time with him to Israel. This time is my turn and I’m heading to Poland with him.

The first day of our journey to Poland is here. After the long night spent at the pubs we woke-up on time 🙂

We took  the bus at 7:40 heading to the south to Zakopane -> city in the Tatra mountains, by bus it took app. 2.5 hours, and when we arrived we had to take other minibus to get to our starting point.
Our trail included two lakes; MORSKIE OKO and CZARNY STAW.

In the first part u have 2 options; to walk in the asphalt app. (1.5 hour) or to take a horse taxi (20 mins), in my opinion just to walk would make us easily tired and on the other hand to take just the horse taxi would be too expensive.

What we did? On the first way we choose to walk and on the way back we took a horse taxi and enjoyed view around us.

The second part of our trip was spend by the real hiking from the lake to the other one. The way was filled by the snow and we literally hiked in it.

To be honest none of us wasn’t ready for something like that but at the end it was fun and big experience. To look after on the way we passed we just laughed and were thinking how to get back but we did and had a beer 🙂

My advice: If you are planning a trip to Zakopane, stay at least 1 night, the city, night life and nature can bring you a lot of fun and in just one day is impossible to see and enjoy it all! Stay and have a fun! 🙂

In Krakow: there are a few “milk bars” restaurants and it’s concept is coming already since the Soviet union, and they just kept it, it’s cheap, fast and good food 🙂 Search for them in the old city!

As usual we like to eat and to try new stuff so after eating we went to the underground museum which is worth to visit.. U get to know the mid-devil Krakow how was..

Later night we went to the pubs and had a fun! 🙂

Later night around 2:30 I asked Joe’s girlfriend to order for me a taxi to go to the bus central station..

In the next post you can see what happened!

Zapiekankie   no words to explain

living the life as Serbian in Belgrade !!

A day before i started my travel, my friend she contact me with Jovana (in English: Yovana), I’m lucky that I succeeded to manage it and meet her in the next day in Belgrade 11/11/14 at 10am.

Earlier when i just woke up and get out of the room, i meet this girl working at the hostel and i asked her:
10519506_10153321014274951_4262667895113481861_n
What was your first job ?
” on internet radio, I talking in a program, I was in high school 17-20,  part time work and study. One of my family was working at a classic radio, he moved to Sweden there he opened the internet radio, once in a vacation when he back here to Belgrade, he asked for somebody to work at the radio, so I got it :)! The job was to animate people to let them talk or sending SMS what song or music they want to listen to, at the first day I was very stressful and afraid for talking to the public, my boss pick me up then when stopped by a store and he came back with. Bottle of gin and tonic! I was a bit drunk and that’s was my first day at the job of my first one. Most of who was listening to these radio where the Serbs who lives abroad!”

Its 10 am i meet Jovana we just cross the street and eat a simple breakfast and drink yogurt, while we were eating we chat about why i’m traveling in Belgrade, i explained for her i’m not a typical tourist, i’m going around without a map! just myself, wallet and my iPhone (to take sometimes pics), i wanna feel like a local.

while we were walking, in some point i saw few people, around 20 persons standing by a tower, parents and their kids, most of them were holding a paper and written on it numbers!! Jovana explains for me what’s going on; they are changing cards of world champion players, like a trade in. the parents are more excited than their  children.

we get to the river DANUB its so dirtry, walked little bit, then from there we climbed up to “Kalemegdan”, the roman city where Belgrade started and then spreaded.
Jovan’s boyfriend joined us for a little bit it was so interesting also chatting with him, he is from England but lives here, explain for me how much it’s complicated the issue of the refugees here, and around 26 nationalities living just cross the river where it was concentration camp!! there are apartments and they live in it and part of them were building of the concentration camp. we start starving James left us to his work.

me and Jovana head to a restaurant called “Rest” i recommend it so much, a great place. i tried the local alcoholic drink that here they made it Rakjia, and we eat the Ćevapi or also you can say kebab.

1610824_10153321015624951_5434362238212913252_n

after all i back to the hostel for sleeping for couple of hours, before the night starts and to go out, Jovan send me SMS that there is public Bachata dancing lesson and party a the street, so i just pick up myself and went there.

 

 

 

 

the next day 12/11

while walking in the park i recognize i flag that i don’t for what country belong, so i just stopped a gentleman and asked him:

10151757_10153323533899951_9028076469644711926_n
10406654_1587184031510506_6932227753224327151_n
What is that flag ?!?
“Flag of Azerbaijan, as a thankful to them for their help for building this park! Tasmajdan, and that person the president of Azerbaijan.”He asked me where I’m from? I’m from Israel I answered. Then he asked again where exactly? Oh somebody know what he is asking about! I said Haifa, “nice place, I was  there, I was with my basketball team and we had a game up close to the Lebanon border at a Kibutz” He said. He end the conversation with saying “nationally it doesn’t important  for me as what the people are, matter for me about the person if good or not! ”

 

after was the plan to go ahead to the river to rent a bike and to ride to “Zemun” neighborhood, when i got there i heard a music and some policies also going around, i walked through where the voices and music coming from, around 300 hundred people T.V channels also taking place there, flags, i walked to be more closest to them and asked someone was going on!
10502340_10153323534149951_6672411725420875531_n
she explains to me: “Vojislav Seselj, he was the president during the war at the beginning of the 90’s and now after 12 years in the jail in Hague, as a result of war crime! he returned back to Belgrade”. the interesting thing here, he is thinking to back to politics, he has a radical party, looks again how to connect all the Serbs under one country!! as it was Yugoslavia, with discussing these issue with few people i was amassed that still there people thinking in this way! i just took my bike and ride back, and i don’t think i will ride this much again for who is not used to its hard.
late night i went out to explore a little bit the nightlife, went to the hipster area located very near to the river at street called Braca Krsmanovic, started at Club Peron at the same night the had Salsa and Bachata night, every Wednesday, around 1 am i started to be over, went out and changed to other mood, entered dance bar called “Chorba Cafe” its a was great live music band Vukasin Brajic.

Now comes the most interesting part of the night!! cause i don’t somebody will write about it, while i’m in my way back to the hostel, i saw the strip club in front of my eyes i said, i wanna talk with the people who work there. the enter was free the beer was similar price like back home, so for me wasn’t expensive its the same, a girl comes to me she was just 22 years old and i asked her:

Do you like your job ?
“I was a sales manager, was boring for me, I like dancing that’s for I end here this job at the strip club!, Because I wanna pay my scholarship! I study at two colleges, Arabic business school. i broke with my boyfriend because that’s job, but for me, i need it for money”
when i was going out i also stopped to talk with 2 guys one was the manager and the second bartender, both of them are married and have a kids! i just was without words and left back to the hostel.

the day after was just relaxing and taking a rest, because in addition i broke a little bit my leg !!
