Stuck in Tram during Warsaw Flash Flood

 

Original YT playout date: 19 June 2010
Duration: 32:50

Here’s a slice of life in Poland for you. I thought I was walking home from work in nice weather, and then I noticed the horizon getting dark, so I decided to hop on a tram. This tram then rode into the middle of one of the worst storms I ever experienced, rendering it impossible for me to get out at my stop. See what happened after that and watch lightning flash follow lightning flash from a rainblurred Warsaw tram window.

Some 5 miles away, in Ursynow, the residents had 15 minutes between dry ground and knee high water ruining their cars. Nobody had seen the like for over 120 years.

Tczew Tczew Train

Original YT playout date: 1 June 2010
Duration: 28:26

I went to Tczew and this was going to incorporate more than just the train ride. I had grand ideas about updating the earlier videos I took in the older part of Tczew and maybe even popping to Gdansk to film a bit, but in the event I was just too busy. So you’ve got some train footage, and a few comments, and that’s it, I’m afraid. You get to see train food, the high water on the Vistula and the work going on to improve the track. And there’s a mildly amusing story of the woman who marched out of the carriage when I got in like I was some kind of leper or potential rapist, only to be caught with an invalid ticket by the guards with no small amount of brou-ha-ha a little later.

Train from Prague to Warsaw – Part 3

Original YT playout date: 16 February 2010
Duration: 14:42

We get as far as Olomouc and then the low light makes it not worthwhile. So we cut to a bit of the return journey – this time the plane was not cancelled, and I even got given an upgrade!

So, in the main, we’re good buddies, Czech Airlines and me. Which is more than I can say for SAS, British Airways and, recently, Lot.

Train from Prague to Warsaw – Part 1

Original YT playout date: 14 February 2010
Duration: 15:43

“This was going to be a Prague Vlog – the first one on the HD cam, but all I really ended up filming was the journey, as when I got there all I did was stay in the office! And as the HD cam is very “”bytey””, I can’t make just the one film of this, so I’ll do it in three parts. You get some lovely real Polish winter landscape from the train after heavy snow – snow that caused the cancellation of the aircraft I was meant to be going there on!

I was determined to go, as I had three meetings that week of people coming into Prague to see me. In the end all three cancelled, but at least my conscience was clear. I made it.”

From Raciborz to Katowice by train

Original YT playout date: 30 January 2010
Duration: 6:12

This shows Silesia from the window of a local train. The train in question was quite clean and comfortable for one of its genre. I had better add that in case people get the idea that they can explore all Poland’s backwaters in minor trains and still always get a reasonable pleasant ride. Your railage may vary.

Huliganov’s England – 4/4 “Germy Claxon werry bed men!”

Original YT playout date: 21 January 2010
Duration: 10:24

Huliganov negotiates the underground railway on London, but comes face to face with none other that “Germy Claxon” himself! Or at least a poster thereof, advertising his latest bilious att-hacks. Huliganov is putting up with none of the nonsense this atrocious human being writes, and shows that even from his face you can tell that he is a no-good style character.
