Actually we counted number of tracks. On better road there were two pick-ups and on worse road about ten motorcycles. So we chose worse road and it was correct decision despite it got much worse later on, because rivers crossings were without bridges and some trees blocked the dirt road which was more walking route in some places. First village appeared two hours later.

Wow, the guys from your country want to be part of Italy. And I like how Slovenians name the UK: "Old Britain".

Today I found my first Cypriot euro coin (10c). I never saw in real life coins from San Marino, Monaco and Estonia.

No, "Velika Britanija" is Great Britain ("Old Britain" would be called "Stara Britanija"). UK is called "Združeno kraljestvo", but we use (Velika) Britanija much more often.

Lire from San Marino were quite common in Italy until 2002. On the countrary, euros from that country are very rare in circulation even in San Marino itself. BTW, I found 2 50c coins from Vatican. You cannot find Vatican coins other than 50c.

I spotted this car in Prague 2 days ago

(pic is not mine)

That looked very ugly, certainly in a city like Prague.

In northern Italy the most common foreign coins are Austrian, followed by German, French, Spanish and Slovenian.

When I've been to northern Italy several times during last years, I wondered about origin of so big amount of Spanish coins there - because I've met maybe a few Spaniards...

italystf - wait for rush of Polish coins, when Poland finally join to euroland

I've seen just one Cypriot coin - 1€ in my uncle's collection.

Haha, I have also one. And I keep a €0.10 coin from Slovenia too, got soon after Verso's country got into the eurozone in 2007.

Hard to say. They're bigger priorities here now. We should reform more important things, like retiring system, organise Euro 2012 as well as it's possible and finally explain the reasons of Smoleńsk's disaster... I guess Poland and Czech Republic will be the last members of euroland from countries of new EU.

After Romania and Bulgaria? I though CZ was more developed than most of former communist countries.

Maybe after - Czech and Poland aren't even in ERM II group now. Entering euroland is not caused by some level of development - all new members should only execute some requirements which take sure of their stabilisation. About Czech development - they have bigger GDP per capita than Portugal, but I can't see its advantage over Poland, Slovakia or Hungary - these countries are at comparable step, I think. In my opinion the only visibly richer post-communistic country of new EU is Slovenia.

Following the current euro-crisis, all non-euro nations stepped back, some nations even two or three steps. Many people now think that introducing euro currency = providing several millon euros for Greece just for nothing, and of course people don't think it is desirable for us.
So I don't think any non-euro nations in Europe are in a great hurry to change currency.
