Kanfanar was not that much unknown place before it got road junction (although not kinda famous neither).
and that intersection is kinda stupid made, it could be better, but it is exit and knot at the same time so it appologizes it.

Malence is the name of the valley, where motorway goes (rather small valley). This is however seen only on 1:5000 maps.
Another strange one is interchange Gabrk, which is named after a slope of a hill nearby (with a different name).

I think they should name them after sth that's more known and to be found on map easily.

I had the opportunity to go with school, but that would cost me over 650 euros. I would have to pay it myself, so it was too expensive for me

Vierwaldstättersee in German, but Lake Lucerne in English

As far as I know, these are not translations, but actually different names.

I think translations would be too weird. Lake of the Four Forest Cantons?

I suspect Constance comes from the name of Konstanz, a town located on the shores of the lake.

I think it's officially "Bodenmeer" in Dutch, but I think most Dutchmen would say "Bodensee" and pronounce it as "Bodenzee" as in "Noordzee (north sea)".

Why? I have a stage when I can't even think of food. Then it passes of course.

BTW, It's boiled(cooked?) food that helps the best.

I had that stages long ago. Now the best thing to defend hangovers is fat and juicy food. Alcohol dissolves fat and vice-versa.

All food is cooked, but some dishes are boiled.

Convalescence is the gradual recovery of health and strength after illness. The convalescence of a patient after a life altering surgery or illness is greatly affected by health care providers. It refers to the later stage of an infectious disease when the patient recovers and returns to normal, but may continue to be a source of infection even if feeling better.
I wonder why someone would pick such a user name...
