The major improvement of a system formed of self-driven cars only is not on the fact they can be moved elsewhere while idling (this is important) but that cars could be made much lighter if accident prevention could rely not on collision mitigation but collision avoidance.

Parking at Zagreb airport is such a rip-off. You pay 15 HRK (2 EUR) whether you park for 3 hours or 1 minute. It even says 15 HRK for 1-3 hours, so I thought it was free up to 1 hour, but it wasn't.

In other news: I got a Japanese neighbour.

Most airports I've been have a 15-minutes drop-off free of charge. So you can go in front of the terminal with your car for free to drop off/take somebody to/from the airport. If you stay longer you pay...

At Ljubljana airport it's free for 15 min in parking lots (used to be 30 min). I don't know about the lowest price, but €2 seems quite a lot to me (who needs parking for 3 hours anyway?). I don't get why you have to pay in the first place. You're already doing them a favour by flying from their airport (shopping centres also have parking free of charge).

I know a family who ended up in Karlovac instead of Karlobag because of their GPS.

A Swedish couple ended up in Rijeka instead of Reykjavik

Rijeka - A couple from Sweden is, quite unexpectedly, enjoying Njivice on the island of Krk these days, although they went on - Iceland. But reserving tickets on the internet they selected Rijeka, thinking that this is the abbreviation for the Icelandic capital Reykjavik.

"We were at the airport where they told us that there is no flight line to Reykjavik ten minutes before the flight. But we have embarked on an adventure in Croatia, about which we knew nothing," they say. They came and realized that they were at sea, with suitcases full of warm clothes for the Island.

In Njivice they have fallen in love with nature and the sea. Next summer will come again to Croatia, they say

This could be a good business model... Customer would order a trip, but wouldnt know where to. Everything he would have to do is to come to the airport. The clothes would be a risk, but I guess in these adrenalin times, this could be quite succesfull business model. .

Well, as a pale consolation, sometimes jobless in Bavaria might be better than employed in Romania...

@bogdymol: how's the weather in Orosháza? Do we get a road film when you come back?

Hopefully not for long.
Anyway I didn't like the place, so it may have been for the best
