I must've drank more than I thought yesterday! Their anthem is Flower of Scotland.

I believe rugby is quite a big game in New England.

Talking about an old discussion: yesterday I refuelled at the OMW gas station in Fernetti (200 meters outside Italy). Inside the shop there was a huge sortiment of Milka products. And yes, I checked and everything was made in Bulgaria. Those sold in Italy (even near SLO border) are made in Milan. I didn't buy anything to see if there was difference, though.

You were in Sežana then, since Fernetti is still Italy.

Yup, Sezana. But Fernetti is the official name of the border crossing (the town of Sezana is few km from there).
BTW, Fernetti is only few houses scattered along a single street (Strada per Vienna/SR58/E65).

Fernetti is on the Italian side.

The IKEA has caused the Delft-City exit to be closed off due to jams caused bij the IKEA.

The double name is just because there are Slovenian minorities there like in other villages in the Italian Carso.

More like majority. And of course the Slovenian side of the border crossing is called Fernetiči, not Fernetti (although it could be Sežana as well). Btw, that road is E61, not E65.

Sorry, I was relying on memory, I didn't look at a map. The E number isn't signposted along the SR58.

Maybe the RA14 motorway is the E61.

Exactly. There's also a hotel, a bar and a pharmacy.
