It was 25 € in 2010, and as far I remember (but I'm not sure) around 13 € before...

It was built as a service tunnel for the construction of a dam and opened to the public later, thus it has only one lane and it is tolled (because owned by a "private" company).

edit: 35 € for return trips in summer (there is no ticket for a single passage), 12 € in winter for a single passage

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it the only way to get to Livigno in wintertime when Foscagno and Forcola passes are closed? Or is Foscagno open all year round?

One? I'll see two other matches and not one with you.

But it is not just hockey. Haven't been there for more than 6 years, let's see, how expensive you've become.

Alright, good for you then.

It would be lovely if Slovenia won silver.

Are you going to travel around the country or you are going to stay just in Bratislava?

Well, also Slovenia is a bit more expensive than it was 6 years ago and hopefully more things have changed in Slovakia within 6 years than just prices.

Btw, yesterday train which I took went on fire (siemens brakes are actually crap ; ) ).

Just Bratislava and surroundings, because I must leave earlier than planned (and reserved) because of work to be done, so I must go with my own car.

Rest area Twaalfmaat along A9 south of Alkmaar, Netherlands. Large wildfires broke out in the coastal region of North Holland, and this rest area was used as a gathering place for fire departments from outside the regular region. Quite interesting.

The main road was not closed, was it?

I can't clearly figure out how to drive on a fast road, while a convoy of emercengy vehicles is running pretty slower than the legal limit.

I mean, those new Volvo and old Mercedes trucks are great machines, but I'm not sure they can go faster than 100 km/h, even in an emergency.

Should people stay behind them?

People overtake them. I've seen it happen on motorways plenty of times, they're lots of forest fires in Portugal, and people overtake the fire engines. Also, ambulances use motorways a lot on Portugal, as hospitals are quite far between and people overtake them.

Alright, but imo if you will have some time you should go for a little roadtrip to the surroudings. I think Bratislava county has very beautifle places outside of the city.
