Well, I use "foliage season" as an excuse for random road trips. And I haven't been up there in years and I've been meaning to....

I play Euro Truck Simulator 2 and in the beginning drove some quick jobs with Renaults, sometimes with heavier loads. I literally couldn't make it up on-ramps. I sometimes had to back up and try again cause I couldn't make if uphill onto the highway. I've never used them since

On top of that, I thinkit looks incredibly ugly cause of the boxy-ness.

No, just give me a Volvo or Scania

I play ETS 2 as well (through Steam) but I've travelled in a Renault truck for real, and the space inside is unbelievable...

The Dutch foreign minister Frans Timmermans is known for his multilingualism. He speaks Dutch, German, French, English and Italian and is ashamed he doesn't speak Polish Apparently he also speaks Russian.

Here's a video with snippets of his languages;

His Italian is indeed very good: he has almost no accent.

I've found a new €10 note! And this is just days after I got the Cypriot EMU €2 coin.

You're late. I've got one already two days after they have been put into circulation (I just visited nearest ATM)

However for a new 5 € note I had to wait around 4 months.
