Well, it's a bit boring to drive on motorways which are flat as a pancake, where euro is currency and there are no borders...
I guess this "former Yugoslavia+Albania tour" is a new experience for you, at least there are new countries to add at your list!

It is/was a great experience, I'm really happy I decided for it.

From all I've seen, Dubrovnik was the best, on second place I would put Mostar, then Split.
I have been to quite some parts of Croatia in the last 2 years, and I have to say, it looks very occidental and developed, and as soon as you cross the border to BiH or MNE you feel the difference. I would also put it over Romania, it should have been in the EU much longer then 2013.

I hope I will get to see more of Albania in the future, like the coast, Berat, Girokastar. The driving was not the best experience, but you kind of get used to it after a while.

Good episode!

Probably originally aired when you were about five. :-)

I'd read the book, though, so I knew how it came out.

I need to transform the following sentence into passive voice:

Could it be done like this?
"The advantage of its simplicity has been taken to verify the hypothesis stated afore"?
or
"Its simplicity has been taken advantage to verify..."

Thank you very much ;-)
"Its simplicity has been taken advantage of to verify the hypothesis stated afore".

I used to like ViaMichelin a lot as a source of small scale European road maps. However, they haven't updated their cartographic base for 3 years and counting... so it is slowly becoming less precise as new roads and highways are opened.

He doesn't seem to mean "take advantage," though.

Can someone suggest me a good Android offline navigation? Free of charge is preferred, but if you know something worth price, it will be good as well.

I was using Sygic T-Mobile (it came with my phone package and was for free). Unfortunately, I've accidentally reset my mobile and can't install it again. Sygic T-Mobile furthermore does not have a good reviews anymore

I didn't pay much attention indeed.

In any case, can you please stop cyber-bullying me on SSC?

I have noticed you are stalking my posting activity on SSC, going to threads where you had never post anything before (or after), for the sole purpose of lashing out on me, like you just did above, writing about me instead of anything related to the content of the threads.

Please, refrain from doing that. I've long avoided interacting with you on this forum, since for whatever reason you decided to troll/attack me in different threads for no reason. Just stop. It is creepy and unwarranted.

It's the other way round my friend. You seem to be going where I'm going. I'm not on SSC 24/7 like you are, but wherever I am, you are.

Also you're upsetting a lot of people in the New York thread. I've defended you to Erbse once, but I am now taking his side. You're trolling around and you're annoying.

If anyone's looking for a more off-the-beaten-path holiday destination... Detroit may be right for you.
