"magazines" for Bulgarians can be even more misleading, as in Bulgarian it doesn't mean neither weekly journal nor warehouse... but a shop. Maybe it has come into our language as a consequence of the warehouse meaning, as in the far past warehouses weren't as big and were part of the shops usually So it looks quite logical truck drivers to unload at shops too

In French, a "magasin" is a store (probably a large one; there's also "boutique"), and in Quebec "faire le magasinage" means to go shopping.

The word I know for warehouse is "entrepôt".

Native speakers feel free to correct me or elaborate.

In Hungarian language a 'magazin' is a weekly or monthly paper with pictures, a 'boutique' (spelled 'butik') is a small shop for clothes, operated by a small company (in the 80's a 'butik' was a cloth shop owned and operated by a person, not the state).

Also in Italian magazzino is used with that meaning too.

Boutique, that is a calque from the French, is used also in Italy, but is usually related with upscale and expensive clothes shops.

"Magazine" can also refer in English to a place for storing ammunition. Not being a gun user, I only come across it in reading about history.

Here's what the American online dictionary I usually refers to says:

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/magazine

Although honestly, I'd never use it to describe a warehouse and I don't know that I've ever heard it.

Some years ago if you translated with Google "you're absolutely right" into Italian, you got something like "you're a fascist/nazi".

Now the big G is more evolved and can even distinguish between the two meanings of the Italian verb "scopare": to sweep or to f**k.
Io scopo il pavimento: I sweep the floor
Io scopo sul pavimento: I f**k on the floor

I think I've heard it in several movies.

There's no such place in NE England. And as far as I know there's no such place near Newcastle under Lyme either.

There is, however, a cafe called Gibraltar Rock in North Shields. Maybe he was peckish.

The road back was hard.
Rain in SLO and IT, Austria ok, except one STAU at a Baustelle, Germany one continous STAU and Stockender Verkehr until A99, and it started raining too.

Whole trip was:
http://goo.gl/maps/0XFR1

I will post pictures.
Have to see when I will also find the time.

Unfortunately few pics from today, because of the rain.
It also hindered me to take shots of the the Črni Kal Viaduct, and combined with the fog, the view from Socerb towards Trieste was blocked.

Guys (& gals if some are reading)... I need advice for a destination for a 3-4-5 days trip in the beginning of January... Some place with mild climate as it is in the middle of winter, and enough thing for a tourist to visit and see. Also a place with an international airport, as I want to go together with my wife and 1.5 yo daughter which means many hours of travelling by car isn't a good option.

Venice is cold. Florence might be, but there is no sea. Sea is good for climate in the winter, it keeps warm. Sardegna is also quite cheap.

@cinxx nice videos. how come you went to predjama? I don't think anyone suggested that to you
