Eh, we go through a round of picture-posting every once in a while. Just dig back a bit.

I chose it firstly because I like how it sounds. Then because it's kinda an unusual language to learn here, but at the same time it's easy (unlike Slavic or Nordic languages). In addition to that, we have more than 1 million Romanians and 150.000 Moldovans, so it might become useful in the future, who knows

Last but not least: I like Romania and I'm probably gonna visit it in April or May. Of course I'll ask you guys for advice!!

---------------------------------------

Speaking of languages, I have 2 language questions for Croatians (or whoever can answer):

- What's the word for hand towel in Croatian?
- Do you happen to know if there's a different word for it, in Zadar dialect?

Thank you

Are calques from Italian\Venetian common in dialects in Istria and Dalmatia? Even if very few people still speak Italian there, centuries of influence may have left something.

yes, they are common. some examples that i know: pijat (piatto), furešt (forestiero), kacavida (cacciavite), gratakaža (grattugia), šporko (sporco), ponistra (finestra), pomidor (pomodoro), kapula (cipolla)... basically, all the words that average Croat from the continent doesn't understand in their speech
however, Italian is partially spoken only in Istria, Rijeka and northern islands.

similar thing happens with northwestern area of the country and German language.

can we continue on pm please if you have further questions?

It all comes from a funny story: when I visited Zadar, we stayed in a woman's pension. She couldn't speak any English at all.
So once we were trying to explain her that we needed more towels, partly in English and partly with gestures, but she didn't understand "towel".

At a certain point she called her daughter, we told her that we needed a towel, and she told her mom "mama, šugaman!"

Had I known it was so easy!!

A Hungarian truck got stuck in a narrow street in San Dorligo della Valle, Italy. He set his GPS to reach Trieste port. Firefighters intervention was necessary to remove the truck. Another accident involving trucks and GPSs, nothing new.

I already had my first coffee at work by that time

I usually start working at 7.30 a.m, sometimes 7 a.m. if I'm up early. But I live very close to work (2.5 km - 8 minutes of cycling). I have colleagues that commute by public transport from some village 60 km away that have to leave home 1.5 hours earlier than me to arrive at the same time.

What about car commuters? Netherlands is one of the notable countries where having a bicycle means more than having a car.

The car share in travel in the Netherlands is 88.2%.

Many Serbians go by car for much shorter distances!
For me, the same distance means about 10-15 minutes of cycling.

I live 9 km from my workplace: 45'-1h by public transport, 30-45' by car or infinity times cycling (because you will be dead hit by a car before arriving). My neighbour commutes by cycling, to a workplace near mine, but I suspect he's much more reckless and brave than I am.

I'm lucky with my cycling route, although I commute from a suburban apartment to a 'transit-oriented' office development, I don't have to cross any traffic lights. I pass through two bicycle tunnels, and cross only one low-volume road where I incidentally have to give right-of-way to a car. Usually I don't have to share the road with any car during my early morning commute.

What would be the time if you would travel by scooter?

I am working as a consultant, and therefore I often have several workplaces. The distance from my home to my homebase office is 15 km. It takes 50-75 minutes by public transport, or 20-25 minutes by car. Quite many people commute by cycling from May to September. During the winter time, the market share of cycling is perhaps 0.5% due to the climate reasons.
