Houses on the road..

20th February 2016
 
So time flies so fast we almost finish the first week of our school holidays. The weather is typically for late November or early spring so it means we can't ski this year. Next year we are going to Austria to have  possibility to ski or make a snowman. I love our winter without snow but the low pressure causes I am very sleepy all day and I must drink several cups of coffee. Luckily my coffee maker works great.
 
In the morning while I was walking my dog I took an interesting photo of two houses which are located on the road. The houses dates back from the beginning of the 20 th century so I am sure at that time the street was not busy as today. But I can't imagine living in that house or sleep at night because the car crash can happen every day. If the car crashed the house it would fall down ...
What a nightmare..
 
I admire the owner of the house how brave he is..

The road is very busy every day..

My dog has a great time ... He is very playful...

  1. I'm surprised that the council didn't knock down the house when the road was put in - ridiculously close to the road
    even with what appears to be a Yellow/Black stripped warning sign - also amazingly close to the house. Very strange, indeed.

    Re: Previous answer on Krakow as opposed to Cracow.
    I believe you should use the Polish spelling - if English readers can't fathom the name out, well too bloody bad.
    I admire Europeans being able to communicate in more than one language - my French is abysmal, but I did try hard way back when in France to be courteous and try and speak French, much to the amusement of the French - ha ha.
    Yesterday on the station into the CBD, there were two Dutch young female backpackers, they come from just outside Amsterdam and live in a rural village, who required some assistance in where a place in Brisbane was. One has been here for over 9 months on a 457A working visa - has driven from above Cairns right down to Melbourne and back, getting odd jobs!!! And surprisingly she didn't drive all the way along the coastal route. This was her second trip - she flew up to Cairns to collect her friend and hired another campervan - which is their "home on wheels" !!!
    That is about as far as Moscow is from Naples, Italy???
    Maybe further I think.
    This certainly is one way to meet Aussies and see everything in between the major cities, eh??
    From Brisbane they are going to Adelaide, the inland route and then - you have been following Margaret's odyssey of the Nullarbor crossing - to Perth!
    As we hadn't finished talking on the train we had a drink at the H/Club, Sofitel so as we could continue our talk.
    Two positively fantastic young girls who really were seeing another side of the world and loving every minute of it.
    Oh to be young again - well maybe. The world was a lot different when I travelled and FAR SAFER! Berlin wall or no Berlin wall - ha ha.
    Cheers

    1. Colin I think the world is more dangerous now because of terrorists attacks. But means of transport are much more comfortable. For European people Australi is a paradise different culture and nature

  3. I wonder what the speed limit is in the town. 30 km/h might be appropriate and keep the house safe. Funny action photo of your dog.

    1. Lei in my country now is not very common and you must build your house 10 metres from the road - it is current rule

  7. I wouldn't dare live in that house. It is a wonder the local council allows the house to be occupied.

    1. I think local council can offer only refund a lot of money for the owner or offer him another house but if she /he does not agree the stay in their property
