Using of shops, hospital, airport, ecc... abroad is common in every border area regardeless linguistic issues.
Many people from across the world study abroad to learn a second language and live in a different place making new experiences. In that case it was about people studying in another country... to study in their own language!
Europe is full of linguistic islands.

BTW, for native speakers: do the English expression "linguistic peninsula" exist? In Italian it's used to define a territory that border a foreign country, whose inhabitants speak the language of the neighbouring country instead of the language of the country where the "linguistic peninsula" is located.

Never heard it, and when I Google "Wikipedia linguistic peninsula" the first two hits are the Iberian peninsula and Scandinavia. I thought this might do it:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Language_island

but they define it differently. None of these expressions, obviously, is in general use.

Aparently the difference exists only in Italian:

I always do that, when something falls off the coffee table in my living room and end up in the space under the sofa.

You can't even safely park your car anymore...






The other driver (female) had the most damage

The Renault looks like a total loss (economically).

My mother's car had some 3,000€ damage (roughly the estimated value of the car) after an accident last year, it was probably more damaged than the one in the photo (it was crushed between two cars). But, since we managed to keep low repairing costs by using spare parts from demolished cars, we eventually managed to repair it entirely with insurance money (the accident happened due someone's else fault).

In 2006 I had an accident with a '93 Toyota Corolla. It looked a bit like the damage on the Renault above, I had an accident on French A10 near Bordeaux. It was an economical total loss, but I got € 400 for the 'wreck', and they later repaired it and sold it to an old lady. Kind of funny to see your 'wreck' parked as if nothing happened. After that I purchased a Peugeot 306.

That was just its market value, it was probably worth more than that to your mother (ability to be mobile).

She said that she lost grip of her steering wheel coming out of the corner. However, if you were to lose grip there you'd drive into the bushes on the other side of the road... Our guess is screwing around with her phone.

She hit the car, swerved around and stopped half on the sidewalk a bit further (say 50 meters) Our car got pushed back around 5-6 meters. If it were on the parking brake our car would've been totalled. Damage noq is around €7000 for our car. (there's also minor engine damage and multiple panels that have to be replaced which you can't see on the pics very well). Her car is probably economically total loss yes, however, she is going to try and fix it 'outside of the system', so with friends or hiring someone herself and such.

Her car is currently still parked in front of our house. We already got it towed away (bumper almost got pushed into the tyre, you can't steer properly now).It's gonna take about 2 weeks until we have the car back.
