Btw, I was in Italy for the first time in my life, about 2 hours.
I spent 1h30min in San Candido (Innichen), a really nice place.
I liked the Latin atmosphere .
I think it's more Germanic/Mitteleuropean atmosphere than Latin
And you didn't even cross the Alpine watershed between Danube and Po basins.

Maybe for you
I have to say, for someone living in Germany for 9 months, after living my whole life in a place with Latin atmosphere, Südtirol was more Latin then Germanic .
Even the driving style seemed more sporty then in Austria.
And I parked here, the driving space between the marked parking spaces was so narrow, that I hardly could back out. Didn't notice it when I arrived because the parking was only half full, but in just under 2 hours it got full. Disadvantage from driving an Audi A4, a compact car doesn't have any problem there.

Anyway I liked it a lot, also that some shops were open on Sunday.

They can put Italian on signs in Sweden. That doesn't make it Latin...

San Candido has a significative (15%) Italian-speaking minority.

I don't want to start a dispute here, I very well know about Südtirol/Alto Adige, it's German speaking majority and Austrian/German origin.
I only stated about atmosphere, which for me, was more Latin then what I feel in Germany or Austria.

There are disadvantages of having and office window that point straight west: direct sunlight on my face around equinoxes late afternoon.

I prefer south-face windows: protection during summer, a chance to "follow" the sun azimuth on winter.

Not "flought," "flown" (I fly, I flew, I have flown.) Not to correct people's English, but I read it at first as "fought" and thought war had broken out somewhere!

I saw Flight 93 when it came out. Terrifying.

In the past someone talked about funny and weird coincidences: you think or speak about something that you it's not very often in your mind and suddenly you encounter the same thing or you read about it.

Last day we talked about Maltese coins and I said that I never saw one in 4 years (and I always looked at my pocket change because I collect unusual coins). Today after went shopping (and received change) that sentence isn't valid anymore! Now only Estonia and Monaco are missing.

Fortunately they didn't give to me any fake bill (we talked about them too).

Yes, the Synchronized User. I've never even seen a euro-coin from Slovakia.

For me is not valid, since I caught a Slovak €2 coin last year. And then some €20 notes, but in late July I exchanged a €50 note to smaller notes and I was surprised to get a €5 note with an E in the serial! On the other hand, I've never seen any Maltese or Estonian coin.

I have many Slovak coins. Only ones I never saw are Estonian, Vatican and Monegasque. I also have one from Cyprus.
