So world will "end" then . It will be 11:12 UTC (CET is one hour ahead), so in Howland and Baker it will be still 20-12-2012 (UTC-12)

Well, unless whatever natural force is going to tear the planet apart works time zone by time zone.... Perhaps we should assume that if we reach midnight the 21st/22d Mexican/Guatemalan time, we're safe.

You don't have to watch it to see that, you can just type "Gangnam Style" ("g" is enough actually) and see recommended videos (and their numbers of views).

I visited Köln/Cologne and Bonn, and had the same feeling, especially in Cologne at the feet of the cathedral (however the market in Neumarkt is quite nice).

At least this time I didn't read the sign well, still even in Zurich underground parking was 2 times cheaper. And this one in Bratislava was not even a garage, but free air.
Wtf? 4,5€ is insane!! Where did you park? At Parliament?

Even Carlton garáž is "only" 3,50€ for 1. hour and then 2€. And it is located on the most important square in the whole Bratislava.

You should have asked on Slovak SSC, you could park you car at Aupark for free and walk 5mins to Old town.

I m glad you liked it, its my favourite too, just a bit overpriced and sometimes lacks the quality of food in Vienna. Have you tried Cigánska?

Actually I thought it would be more about technical side of it, as it is listed in Unesco, but it was rather like Disneyland, a bit kitschy with all those dwarfs all around the place.

Btw, on the journey back our bus almost crushed into lorry, quite scary when I saw it 15 cm from window.

The European motorway network has grown by 1 454 kilometers this year, according to my logs (as of today). Nearly half of that occurred in Poland. Number 2 is Spain, followed by Romania. On average, all European countries with a motorway network opened 41.54 kilometers of new motorways each.

The least new motorways opened in France, just 4 kilometers, though it should be noted they did open a number of motorway-like Voie Expresses. Slovakia opened 6 kilometers, the Netherlands just 10.

Out of all European countries with a motorway network, 11 of them did not open any new motorways, the biggest of them being Belgium and Austria. No European country opened their first motorway this year, the most recent being Kosovo in 2011.

The European motorway network is currently approximately 87 000 kilometers long. The three largest networks are found in Spain, Germany and France, the smallest in Kosovo (or Moldova, but it's unclear whether they actually have motorway status roads).
