I want to tell you in detail about our road route in Austria in July 2016, focusing on the organization of the trip and share useful sources. The themes of our trip were mountains and, first of all, we wanted to spend more time in them, capturing, however, several cities.
Summer continues. Perhaps now is the "hay", the apogee of transport. The main work, as before Charters of the regions and the capital of the resorts of the Turkish-Greek-Montenegro and the Spanish-Egyptian direction.
As you know, only mountains that were not better can be better than mountains. From the school lessons of geography, I knew that the Urals were, in fact, mountains too, although for some reason no one was serious about them. And on the map, Ural is temptingly located not far from Moscow, considering that I have already seen the Caucasus a bit. In this post, this was the main reason why this trip was started, and an attempt to convince skeptics that the Urals are completely worthy of the attention of travelers. Under the cut, there is a high-mountain lake and the Zyuratkul range, the Taganai National Park, and also the lakes Turgoyak and Bannoye (Yakty-Kul), which are popular with local tourists.
Kamchatka! Probably not in Russia a man who would not hear of it. This, of course, because in almost every village and certainly in each class has its own "Kamchatka". It does not just far away (in Russia there is, thank God, and far away places). Kamchatka - it is an amazing and fantastic world where high mountains, clean, full of fish rivers, mysterious geysers - in a word, the kingdom of Far Far Away, but despite the popularity of the word, very few people were there who saw firsthand the fire-breathing, mountainous peninsula.
Those who have not been to Hong Kong, as well as to me before this trip, this place seems to be a sort of megalopolis of some skyscrapers, with an incredible number of cars and people, entirely in advertising and smog. Naturally, such naive delusions are easy to dispel, one has only to unfold the map, where it is clear that urban areas occupy only a small part of Hong Kong, the rest is lush tropical greenery and numerous sandy beaches.
Quit smoking - get up on skis, says popular wisdom. And if you do not go to extremes, then we change the habit of “smoking” to the habit of “floating” and go to the ski slope in the off season. A budget for the purchase of skis, you can safely lower on the road: in Lviv or numerous Hutsul "kolybah."
