Autogrill rules. the prices are not low, but anything they offer to eat or dring is superb.
Agree, the food is usually good and you can find everything you need and more on our Autogrill (even books, CDs, DVDs, souvenir, thypical foodstuff and wine of the region,...) the only problem are prices, usually higher than in normal shops.

I usually use Accor hotels' network. They offer pretty wide range of accommodation from budget to very high standard hotels around the Europe. In France you can easily sleep in 3 star for less than 60 euros.

I have already booked several nights using their network in France (Etap, Formule1), Germany (Ibis, Etap) and Hungary (Mercure). I did not spent more than 45 euros per night, per room for 3 people.

It's depending on the region where you want to use it. For Hungary and Romania TopMap has high quality, Navteq worse then TopMap but quite good as well but TeleAtlas is poor. For Germany TeleAtlas and Navteq have both high quality with no real difference.

Yes, however that's only a part of the town, the rest seemed quite different to me.

Ups

here is another...Very common milder swear word in Slovenia is also porkamadona this is also probably from italian language, i would say from word Porca madonna?

Very high percentage of slovenian swearing words have their roots in serbo-croatian language. And then we have some swearing words which have their roots in italian language (you already saw some of the examples) and also from german language (švajneraj/schweinerei, kakec /kacken....). And then we have our own swearing word Tristo kosmatih medvedov /Three hundred hairy bears.....but lately, thanks god there is growing nuber of new, how can i say autochthonous slovenian swearing words )

How great is the difference between Serbian/Croatian, Slovenian, Macedonian and Bulgarian?
I heard a guy talking at a Biergarten near me, and I was not sure which one it was. Certainly it was no Russian, Ukrainian or West Slavic language.
He spoke to a woman, kinda loud and used his hands too, seemed that something was bothering him a lot .

northwestern Croats understand Slovenians more or less and vice versa.
Croats understand Serbs with almost no exceptions and vice versa.
Croats don't understand Bulgarians and Macedonians the best.
Serbs don't understand Slovenians.
Older Slovenians understand Serbs and Croats.
Macedonians understand Serbs.
Serbs can mostly understand Macedonians more or less.
Macedonians understand Bulgarians and vice versa.
Serbs and Bulgarians? dunno. similar as they undesrtand Macedonians.
nobody of mentioned understands Croats from the seaside

one of the best posts I've read
At first I thought the guy was speaking Serbian, but the Serbs I observed they have a special 'o' vowel pronunciation and the guy didn't seem to have it...

Pica really is Pizza, however "piča" (picha) means pussy. In Croatia and Serbia they say " jebem ti pičku materinu" (I **** your mums pussy) or "idi u pičku materinu" (go to your mums pussy).
