Anyway, I would sugest Chris to move this to the roadside rest area...
Sure the romanian signs don't exist (Zagor said these are fantasy signs), however the first one shows the right directions, while driving on E85 in Urziceni. As for the second romanian one, location of it may be Sebes, however there is no intersection where it would fit.

English should be the first language on all airports in the world... especially on tranzit airports such as Schiphol.

I remember that I've seen bilingual signs (English/Spanish) in New York-JFK and Miami airports, but not in Chicago-O'Hare.

If you need snow, Arlberg, Austria is the place to go. Almost 6 meters!

There's a service station somewhere near to Bordeaux with a ridiculously long slip road to get in there (which I found fun ) , but its really nice, does anyone know where it is? I went there in 2004 so I'm not sure

I think next week I'll be more than satisfied with 1,5-3 meters in France.

In that case: do you personally know eachother? How else would you know how to find him? Or did he just give you a printscreen and said "Try to find me on Google SV"?

On Wikipedia its says that Zrenjanin is twinned with Arad.

I knew that Romanian roads aren't the best in EU but I wouldn't think that there would be so many unpaved streets even in town like Arad.
