That is a lot.

The fastest I crossed France ITaly-Spain was like crossing the Fréjus tunnel 7.30 and arriving at Irún 17.00 or so with 2 stops near Clemont-Ferrand and Perigueaux worth 20 min. each!

If I have to be honest I didn't do all the way but stopped 10 minutes near Grenoble to refill my car...

Where I live there are no payed parking spaces, so everybody is free to park where he/she wants. Usually I park my car near my flat, but last evening I couldn't find any spot free so I parked at 2 flats distance. This morning this is what I found...



Both windscreen wipers broken + a big piece of ice:



For the one that did this:

Iron Gates is still a border crossing and probably will be for many years from now on. As for countries transited without stopping I've done this in Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Belgium, Slovakia, Hungary and Czech Republic.

When I said that I crossed Slovenia without stopping it means that I didn't stop for anything (no refueling, no STOP signs, no traffic lights, nothing!). I just slowed down to 40 km/h while crossing through 2 former toll booths and the rest of the journey I did aprox. 120 km/h.

edit: If I'm not mistaken I should say Happy Birthday! to you today

I think I know who usually parks on that spot. I'll keep an eye from now on on that parking spot to see who stays there.

I know Germans are very fond of beer, but this seems a bit too much.

When I lived there, I left for one entire day my car parked with side window wide open, and nothing happened... and there were electronic things inside like gps and a digital altimeter...

Guess it depends on pure luck.

One time I found out the car lock for the passenger side wasn't working. You could open it even after I closed it with the remote. I never knew how long it wasn't working, it could've been for months, I never use the passenger side of course. Nothing got ever stolen though. New car lock: € 130.

My parents and I came to Germany by car from Romania (Dacia Logan with RO TM plates). We parked the car in one of the streets in the area, where free parking was. Only 3 days after arrival, we found the right side mirror (the one on the pedestrian side) bashed and hanging.
In 6 six years, since we have the car, nothing like this happened in Romania to us.

It's an ugly thing, racism. My home in Brescia is placed on a dead-end narrow street, so sometimes two cars going in opposite directions meet and one has to reverse. Some days ago an Italian-plated van met a Bulgarian-plated car, and the Italian driver of the van insulted loudly the Bulgarian one: "Go home, go away from Italy".

This is very sad, especially in a city like Brescia were 20% of the inhabitants are not Italian.


Meanwhile, in Britain:


Bus driver was sentenced for 17 months in prison, the cyclist got several broken bones.

I don't even know if it was racism, idiots and drunks are everywhere.
Who knows... anyway it's sad to be like that.

Anyway, regarding the story with the Bulgarian, I would like to see the Western EU's handle themselves without the immigrants.
Who would treat them in hospitals, who would take care of the old people, who would do a lot of things they can't or don't like to do...

Once a my friend had a confrontation with a neighboor (that was a drunkard and ganja addict) and the following day he found all his 4 tires cut with a knife and several scratches on the paint. He called the police but they couldn't do nothing because there were no ways to proof who was the vandal.

Your friend should have spared himself to call the cops and should have cut his neighbour's car's tires. An eye for an eye.

Once I forgot my car keys inside for a night. Pure luck that nobody just drove away with my car.

However it seems that not only in Slovenia some people think that public parkings in front of apartment houses are their property. I have sometimes raised wipers (usually from bored old people) for warning that I'm not welcomed even if I live there already for years.

The most awkward thing in winter conditions is when people on public parking clean parking place (which is public) and then put a box onto it to prevent someone taking "their" cleaned parking space. I remove those boxes and park there with most satisfaction.
