Ferry boats/На пароме

Despite the abundant amount of roads, ferries are a popular means of transportation in Europe. They are comfortable, save time (and money for cars that are not gas-efficient), allow to have a night out on a mini-cruise. This ferry does not look special on the outside, but is quite comfortable.

Несмотря на обилие дорог, паромы тоже являются популярным видом транспорта в Европе. Это удобно, экономит время (а если большая семья, то и деньги за бензин), и позволяет отдохнуть и провести вечер в мини-круизе. Снаружи - вроде бы небольшой корабль, а внутри много места и для машин, и есть где комфортно отдохнуть пассажирам.


It is not just for automobiles, big trucks get special places on the bottom decks. Here is the loading line.

Грузовые машины тоже пользуются услугами паромов, занимают нижние грузовые палубы. Вон они, ждут погрузки.

The cars are parked very close to each other, every square inch is precious.

Машины паркуют очень близко друг от друга, каждый квадратный сантиметр на счету.
Everyone on board, let's go.

Больше желающих на сегодня нет, время отплывать.
See you again, Gothenburg!

До встречи, Гётеборг!
There are scenic places on the way. Like this house by the lighthouse, for example.

Иногда на пути попадаются интересные места. Вот как этот дом возле маяка, например.

Let's get a closer look. The yacht is by the house, someone must be home.

Посмотрим поближе. Яхта рядом, значит кто-то дома.
There are some pretty decent rooms for those who want to get some actual rest. Mini-bar was free.

Ну а тем, кому завтра в дорогу, на борту предлагаются хорошие условия для отдыха. Душ, туалет, все в каюте, все удобно. На этом рейсе был бесплатный мини-бар.
