Nice discovery. I feel that restoring some of them will be more costly than the purchase price, though.

I have 18 km to my work place using car as most of the route is motorway or expressway (it takes about 17-20 minutes). If weather (at least 10°C in the morning and dry - return can be wet) and my working schedule permit I go with a bike - 13 km through city center or about 40 minutes. With public transport it is at least 45 minutes so I use it just in very rare cases.
I work between 8 and 16 (+/- depending of work) with half an hour break for lunch at 11 (my second and usually biggest meal of the day because of afternoon sport activities). Luckily I work in a business complex next to second largest shopping area in Ljubljana so there is no problem with parking, shopping or going to lunch.

The faculty where I teach is very close to my home. Although there is a street with no side walks and pedestrian crossing across wide 4-lane trunk road with 70 kph speed limit, which make me scared of it. I can use public transport, but the stop is either on the other side of the horrible road. I would travel just one stop to get off and walk another 15 minutes. Therefore I commute by car or by bike in summer. By car I am there in 5 minutes. By bike almost 20 in one direction (uphill) and 10 in another.

The ministry is on the other side of city, directly in city centre. There are no parking places at all (neither charged). As there is a trolley line with terminus behind my windows, I travel there by t-bus. It took me 11 minutes.

No need, the French have gone in.

Hostages freed, terrorists dead. Well done the French!

Damn it appears 4 hostages have been murdered.

I used to commute to the faculty from Zrenjanin to Novi Sad (50 km), which took 45-50 minutes by bus. Bus station is well connected with the campus, so I had to just get into city bus. For me it wasn't a problem, it's much better sleep in your own bed.

It's +17 in Oberösterreich right now. Everything was covered in snow here just 2 days ago, but now all has disappeared. There are some very warm wind gusts from time to time.

Short change of topic, have you guys had experience with renting a car in Spain? What would you recommend? I read a lot of negative reviews, also I would not like to pay a fortune for a car. While you are a lot more flexible, it's not worth it if it's much more expensive then train/bus.

I'm flying to Malaga for the last full week of March.
I was thinking to rent a car and drive around Andalusia...

I don't know how is in Spain, but I rented a car several times in UK and Ireland (rented by my company). I think that the best would be to rent a small car (something like Peugeot 107 because you really don't need something larger for a few days of holiday, and it's the cheapest type of car to rent). You should check online the prices, as they are a lot better than just to go at the airport and rent a car after arrival. I think you can also get a good deal if you book the flight ticket+car together (I saw this on some airlines websites). You will also need a credit card with some money on it (up to 1000 Euros I think) as a guarantee that you won't scrap the car.

Tell me about it. But cold again tomorrow with new snow. Drove to Munich twice today, and once you cross the border into Germany everything turns green. The strong winds were unbelievable today. We call it a "föhn" and that comes with really warm weather, Even in Munich it was around 20c today...
