Is a border bridge between Slovenia and another country?

We have here not so much snow (15cm), but the weather is very cold. This morning we had -20C (-4F), which is quite unusual in this region.

I just wish temperatures don't rise all of a sudden, which would melt all that snow and create extreme floods.

Slovenians often speak about their "bora" , but these Slovenian guys came to the birthplace of it in Croatia to experience it. they have measured 205 km/h. we often say that Senj is considered as a city where bura never stops.

You can be easily knocked down even by 80+ km gusts, if you're not prepared - happened to me few times at skiing and in the mountains.

They say the combination of snow and low temperatures make this winter the harshest in Bulgaria since 1953 (it was last back then such longer periods with so low temperatures and so much snow)...

Hehe it's funny. Personally, being in a tropical country, I would actually want to be there on the end with the ice and snow.

Seriously, hot and humid Philippine weather is killing me (and it is not even the summer months)

P.S.

Hehe, but hey at least your country (Netherlands) is a haven for trance music legends (i.e. Armin, Tiesto, Ferry Corsten/System F, Marco V and Vincent De Moor just to name a few)

Actually, at one point, I dreamt of wishing that I could attend Sensation White in Amsterdam someday.

Crazy Italians? No, skilled photoshop users! Notice the same guy exactly in the same position first in Rome and later in Milan (from 2 different FB groups)
