Of course, but if every woman drives as bad as the one in the video, they don't have a chance at all

Why would Slovenia make you think of that? I think it's a nice name. If anything, the Stans (Tajikistan etc.) make me think of that. Some people are so ignorant. They don't even know where a country is, yet they think they know everything about it. If I don't know anything about a country, I just don't say anything about it, as simple as that; I rather ask what it's like there. For example, I know that South America is generally rather poor for our standards, but I know that Chile is different, it's richer (and French Guiana, of course). I remember polls among EU citizens before we entered EU. Even though we've always been the richest candidate (except Cyprus), no one wanted us in EU, we were only more popular than Turkey, for like 1% more popular. Romania and Bulgaria were more popular than Slovenia. Europeans should know whole Europe, not just Western Europe.

Slovenia almost has a higher GDP than Italy and Portugal, right?

Slovenia's had a higher GDP/capita than Portugal for almost a decade. We've almost caught Italy too, yes. I think at one moment we also surpassed Greece, but it's been successful at being slightly before us ever since they got the lesson. We surpassed the Czech Republic already in mid-'90s.

That's why I can ski in the mountains, swim in the sea and get home all in one day.

Your colleague should hear news from today: "poor and backward" Slovenia is to allow gay marriage and adoption of children.

I absolutely adored Slovenia, especially the small size is very convenient, you have several landscapes within an hour of driving from the center of the country. And it is very modern, even rural areas were well maintained. I also liked those small shopping malls, very convenient, lots of parking space and shops, we lack that in the Netherlands.

I said that somewhere not long ago, but my impression is (although numbers probably don't support it) that Slovenian countryside actually looks more developed than Maribor.

It happened to me once. I lost the entire exhaust pipe while driving on a crappy "road" in a swamp south of Ljubljana.

i also admit (khm) that SLO countryside looks really pleasant and great.i haven't seen ugly and dirty village there (at least not in parts where i was at countryside, and that's south of Maribor). in HR similar tidy villages you can find only at edge north (around Čakovec).
but this sea in SLO is really, as we would say in HR, dick of a sheep

That's right. Almost the complete Slovene seaside is made out of concrete, Croatia has beaches

Beaches are horror in Slovenia, that's true, just an idiot would have a vacation on our beaches. But for that we have our friendly neighbours, right?

Timon. I think the most normal beach is by the Italian border (Debeli rtič), nothing special though..

Sure, most of them are pretty far away. Austria has some really nice lakes too.

I didn't go there because I wanted to go to the beach, I went there to visit Koper, Trieste, and Rovinj
