airport shuttles cost from 5€ on per direction (in more famous cities that amount is multiplied). in Madrid they will charge you extra fee for using metro and taking exit at Barajas. each kg of extra baggage costs you as hell. some companies (even regular, not lcc) have started to charge each piece of bagagge. food, coffee, water, anything that you could eat or drink makes you instantly not hungry nor thirsty at the airport. if you have to park your car for a week, you could take a loan.
and after all you are complaining for 2€ parking fee, which is regular fee at most of parking lots in the Europe.

I just checked, and at Ljubljana airport it's free up to 30 min.


Today I took my father to Ljubljana outskirts, he went by bus to Brussels, London and Amsterdam. It turns out 2 passengers were still missing, so the bus waited for 5 minutes. The funny thing is they arrived at the hour of departure, but instead of jumping out of their car and informing them they're finally there, they were phlegmatically unpacking their baggage behind the bus, so no one even knew they had arrived (I noticed them, but I thought they were going somewhere else). Then they phlegmatically knocked on the bus's door when it already started moving 5 minutes after the scheduled departure. Just unbelievable. 5 seconds later, and they would stay at home.

Nope, no road films this time. The route was this one. The Romanian part is all in good condition, but the Hungarian part of the road was good (first half) and very bad and full of potholes (second half). Also, the border crossing check is a joke. At the return trip I wasn't checked at the border... they just waved all the cars to cross.

PS: I might to a road film in about one week in Belgrade

There are few lots outside the parking at Sofia Airport where you can stop to drop someone or take someone from the airport, but you cannot leave the car (I mean driver must be there). But on busy days all these lots are busy...
Entering the parking underneath has no free minutes - you pay for every hour 3 leva which is approx €1.50. Which means compared with Zagrebs €2 for 3 hours, at Sofia Airport for 3 hours you have to pay €4.50.

Chris, at your pic there is very nice retro car on the side of the crash, what is it?

Here weather is crazy, too. Some days ago there was 27ºC in Zaragoza, now it's raining, and now (12:53 UTC+2) it's sunny with some clouds. Something is wrong...

Just got back from my crazy trip. Feels like I travelled an entire continent, instead of just one nation. 2680 km in 1 week, 11 towns (Castelplanio, Scerni, Fossacesia, San Vito Chietino, Sava, Otranto, Terracina, Sperlonga, Sabaudia, Castiglione del Lago, Signa) 3 seas (Adriatic, Jonian, Thyrrenian), 2 lakes (Lago di Sabaudia and Lago Trasimeno) and a variety of climates (from rainy 14°C in Sava to sunny 34°C in Signa).

Got lots of pics but still have to download and sort them out.

Ah, and I hoped to advertise my hometown, Timisoara .
Anyway, those destinations are really great, but since the lack of many motorways, you will pass through lots of urban areas, and some could be worth a short stop.
And if you already plan Transfăgărăşan, you could also check out the Transalpina.

You can fin lots of pictures of all those in my Flickr account:

Here's a gem for you. An (almost) 360° picture I took myself on the belvedere in San Vito Chietino (province of Chieti):

Left part of the image you can see a couple viaducts of A14 motorway, with mighty Majella mountains covered in snow in the background; in the center-left, you can see the new part of Adriatic Railway, built in 2005 to replace the old part which was too close to the seaside; in the center part, the town of Marina di San Vito with SS16 road, along the coast; also in the center, just left of those 5 buildings near the seaside, you can see a bridge of the old railway, which I think will be converted into bike path; the pier with 2 trabocchi, old wooden structures used to fish; on the right part of the coast, another lonely trabocco; if you look at the bottom part of the image, far left and far right, you can also see a section of Sangritana Railway, which leads to Lanciano and the center of Abruzzo.
