More like Euro-van...
I don't even know why the hell I am playing this game... It's not like I am getting paid for it, unlike me doing my job in real, and believe me...that is really realistic.

I am better playing that game then doing Euro truck. No accidents, and I actually get to stay on the road, instead of driving on grass and verges...

I am going to do a similar but a little shorter trip soon (about 20.000 km round trip). The car I will use:

One of these smart looking machines was my first ride.

Strange, those pics aren't mine, I sourced them out of the internet.

Around Europe, so not too exotic, however it's going to be an important introduction to something much bigger with Volvo 240 as a first plan actor. Preparations are really advanced

Maluch is a legend! at least 3 of my friends had them. we would escape from the school and go chilling around the city in one (we = 4 guys 1,90 m x 90 kg ). once 6 of us have been traveling in one from the city, but girls were included and owner wasn't over-dimensioned.

btw how do you call it in Slovenia?

We sometimes called it "kaszlak" - a thing/person which coughs.
