This was last wednesday on the A2 near Lugano. Some entertainment during a few hours of being stuck in traffic.

My girlfriend called me few minutes ago and asked me if I want to go with her tomorrow for sunbathing. I told her to check the weather

Weather went completly mad, just 2 hours ago it was 28C, sunny and there wasn't a single cloud, but now? 18,5C overcast and very windy.. feels like if somebody turned on A/C. It is 15C in Žilina and 100 km away on South it is 30C.

Something similar, but even more extrem happened last summer when it was 35C and in very short time it was 15 with heavy rain.

Once during an official ceremony in Bucharest they played the Slovakian anthemn to the Slovenian president
And some Swedish tourists flew to Rijeka instead of Reykyavik

Before the game the stadium announcer said something like "Welcome to Budapest"... so it happens

Also, I heard about people booking a flight to Konstanz, Germany and arriving in Constanta, Romania instead...

Or all those people that booked some flights to Sydney, Australia and ended up in Sydney, Canada.

In Italian both cities are called Costanza.
Once I read a news about an Italian girl that called their relatives she will arrived at Munich airport and they drove to the principality of Monaco (Munich is called Monaco in Italian).
Or those Swedish tourists driving to Carpi instead of Capri.
Or thatt Turkish trucker who had to make a delivery in Gribraltar and he went to a village in Great Britain called also Gibraltar.

And when I was on holiday in Croatia I meet a family who drove to Karlovac instead of Karlobag and they though they were near the sea (Karlovac is inland between Rijeka and Zagreb, while Karlobag is on the coast near Zadar).

last summer I have met a Dutch couple late in the evening in Velika, Croatia. i saw that they were tourists looking for something. but what the heck?! tourists don't come there, nothing touristic in that village! i have offered them a help, they asked me about camp in Velika.

are you sure people? 3gp signal was low so i couldn't establish a connection, so i couldn't help them. but since "Velika" means "large" in Croatian and many places have that word in their names, i am 100% sure they found some camp at the seaside and ended in the middle of nowhere
