Some people here would say: foreigners? :) BUt I'm sure it's not the case (it also depends on your nationality). Hmm - let me think... Maybe you won't like some Polish people who not always mind their own busines...?

Some people may afraid some "tipsy" poeple walking at night on the streets - but they are usually friendly and harmless; they just need someone to chat with :).

If you've got a very nice car, you should keep an eye on it in Poland (especially near the Eastern border).

I'd agree. the Polish driving is something to fear...avoid the potholes and not all the roads are nicely paved

Hi there,

I'd say keep an eye on your wallet. Your money will fly out of it like crazy. Where exactly is it that you are going?

When do these cars stop heading east?
Germany > Poland > Belarus > Russia > The Pacific Ocean? (somewhere north of Polynesia, you might find the Volkwagenonesian archipelago)

Everything, be afraid, be very very afraid.
I do not think you are going with the right attitude, could just be a badly made question.
I am sure you will be fine, so long as you are not out during a full moon, mwaaaahaha ha ha ha!!

Invading armies, I mean really it is getting ridiculous, you go down the shop for a pint of milk, and in comes the Tartars shooting spears and generally having a laugh, then the sweds, with their funny hats, the germans with their funny walk, the Russians nothing funny about them, The mongols shooting their arrows.

I tell you by the time you get back home your knackered

lol. I actually did see a few recently. Red, orange...eeek. What's up with that?

What r the things you think I should be afraid of?

Beggars at every bus and train station can be pretty darn aggressive. Have some change in you packet to get rid of them. And, no matter what you do - don't light up a cigarette. You'll be surrounded by a few who will want one.

Red, orange...eeek

The further east you go..the more red is the hair....In Russia they have really bright red hair , almost luminous....
