Slovenian nationalist MPs (SNS - Slovenian Nationalist Party):

- Zmago Jelinčič Plemeniti (literally Zmago Jelinčič the Noble ) - Croatian surname (Jelinčić)
- Bogdan Barovič - Serbian surname (Barović)
- Miran Györek - Hungarian surname

All Slovenian nationalists.
Great, hope in next elections they won`t have more than 5%.

^ I remember that. Our Jelinčič the Noble called Croats "cattle"... and his surname is Croatian.

No, we don`t use our names on a signs. Btw, Wien is Viedeň and Kittsee - Kopčany, but "Kittsee" is used.

btw, if you are intrested - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwPTh8t7NNw

and wiki - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kittsee, http://sk.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kittsee


and btw, I have to be careful when I will be in Slovenia to not say something funny about Dunaj
Nova Gorica is a town 'new' is because it was built to replace the old Gorica or Gorizia, which is in Italy today.

Reading that article about Kittsee, and Burgenland and so on, got me to this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Czech_Corridor


anybody knew about that? hehe, what kind of ideas were in the heads a century ago.

That corridor would've reunited South Slavs with the rest of Slavs. But Austria and Hungary wouldn't border each other any more.

There is free wifi in a lot of McDonalds throughout Europe too. You can often even use it from the parking lot.

In what NS trains did you find wi fi for free? I never ever encountered any free network in NS stations let alone trains which did not seem to be equiped with one. In the stations there were however T mobile hotspots... paid ones of course.

I traveled twice a week the line from Leeuwarden to Utrecht and back. Sometimes some other lines.

Some Koplopers have it. I've only been in a wifi-Koploper twice, but I usually travel with Koplopers about twice a week.

Yes, of course I understand but to replace? What went wrong?

Yeah, I heard about this corridor they wanted 80 km wide land between Yugoslavia (Slovenia nowadays).

More maps how it could be like:

they wanted border 30 km from Budapest, somwhere near Vác and everything from M3 motorway including Miskolc.



plus gap between Austria and Hungary - Burgenland



and some people also wanted part of Burgenland where was big community of Croats

It's a good thing it didn't happen, one border less for me to get to Vienna before Schengen.

We Romanians should have also asked for a Latin corridor, so that we are finally reunited with our Latin brethren in Italy after being separated by those pesky Slavs ! This corridor could pass through Istria and the Istroromanian villages there .

There might be some "Corridor junction" or "Nation junction" of corridors.

btw, can you speak with Italians? How good you can understand?

Romanians usually can understand quite well Italian and Spanish.

Of course, we don't know that . But usually, it's not very difficult to understand the Italians from the center and north of Italy; of course, unless they are not speaking fast like a machine gun.
But with the southern dialect(s) is another story.

I can't understand anything Slavic. Last month I was in Slovakia, Czech Republic and Poland and I only spoke in English and if someone tried to say something in a slavic language they could say anything because I don't understand.

On the other hand, when I was in Italy I coudn't speak Italian but I didn't have major difficulties understanding what italians were trying to say.

PS: my girlfriend can speak Spanish although she never took any spanish course and she has never been to Spain. Maybe she watched to many soap operas but still I consider this a performance

No, because I would be beaten because they don't know the difference between a romanian person and a rrom (gypsy) one.

Seriously speaking, I would try to speak English if the other person knows it (I feel more comfortable speaking English that trying my Italian), but if it dosen't know English I would try to speak something romanian-italian. And it works!

Well, it depends. Given there are almost 1.000.000 Romanians in Italy and maybe the same number in Spain, I could use Romanian.
Now seriously, I use only English, although I can also use some words in Italian. Our languages are part of the same family, but they are not truly alike.
