I donīt know whereīs dust but doesnīt matter anyway, the road is a highspeed road becaue you feel nothing and that makes you trap on your acceleration.

I remember when I used to travel by bus throughout Europe I would sit in front near the driver to catch the scenery on film. Too bad they didn't let you do the same.

It's much better to travel by car.

It is but I donīt have a car and so on, I will sit on the first seats next time I travel again to make good pics of the E-79 high speed road and Struma motorway, yesterday when we were returning from sofia I remember how trucks and buses were overtaking altough it was raining and snowing but everyone wants to drive fast on those roads.

it was very smooth and even, the asphalt seems to be quite fine, only things you could feel were the bridges, nothing else, I like that they finally put signs on the motorway and also the reflective things at the night between the crashbarriers which make the motorway somehow look like an airport runway. I like that this nationalroad passes through so many mountains, it just goes up and down, you sometimes see slopes going 100 and more meters down, really good enginering.

Also that curve is very tight. I know Staro Selo is just a village, but it should be wider.

That is a motorway exit? Why does it have a pavement?

Considering how Radi talks about it you would expect for it to be something good, but what we can see on pictures is below average highway.

ok, it is quite tight, but it looks almost as average 40 km/h exit, so nothing too special. what i've noticed is lack of any crash barriers which are neccessary at exits (especially 40 km/h exits) and look at enviroments - it looks as the works are still going on. it is so ugly around. man would expect totaly opposite situation at world's best motorway

It is a motroway exit, what else should it be, as if on German motorways arenīt such exits for small villages. The motorway isnīt crappy at all, you donīt know how ti feels to drive there.

You guys are really dumb, you only notice the bad things, donīt you notice the great asphalt, the great markings and so on, come on, as if on Croatian motorways which you praise there isnīt dust. I know that on the whole two hudret kilometer long E-79 thereīs no one single bump that makes the things in your car shake or make a noise, altough the road leads through mountainous terrain, in other countries there arenīt many roads which hodl such a good quality for so long but yeah, move ti to crappy motorways and lie yourself.

What makes this better then an American Interstate? That's the only comparison I have to make.
