A new weather record has been made in the Netherlands, it rained for a full day non-stop in De Bilt (near Utrecht, meteorological center). The previous record was 23.5 hours of rain in one day. I reported about 18 degrees earlier this week, but there is currently snow on the ground.

On contrary to boring German and Japan MPV's she will definitely become a cult and classic car as her predecessor did. Actually, Multipla, thanks to the Italian designers and manufacturer, who along the French, are plucky enough to go out of the box, went a thing of cult in the date of birth

From the other hand..

I am a fan of Eastern European and some German and Austrian wines, do not particularly like most famous French or Italian ones. I am not sure if you knew that Slovaks, Czechs, Ukrainians, Serbs, Romanians, Bulgarians and obviously Hungarians and Georgians make very sophisticated wines, which are highly regarded among connoisseurs. If you drink wine and want to taste a difference try this one for a start.


However, it may be quite hardly accessible in Western Europe, so check for Hungarian, more known siblings. I only knowSt Stephan Crown as sold in Western European supermarkets, however some more specialized wine shops may have wider choice.

You should try Slovenian wines. It almost can't get better.

yesterday I have surprised my friends with Sladki muškat 2010. from Vina Koper i am not in fond of sweet wines, but they liked it really (and, also, in the class of sweet wines i can confirm that it is really good). regarding slovenian wines i prefer those from Ormož area.

but i must admit that i rarely consume non-croatian wines. imported never (at least when i buy them), but i buy them often when I travel abroad (the case with slovenian one from yesterday)

Check the remote location in the mountains of it. It has been obviously some small mining or other facility during communist times, but it was operating in loss as most of such cost-ineffective creations of the "planned economy", and therefore it was closed and abandoned.

You can note that GSV covered more than 90% (or was it even 98%) of Bulgaria, not only streets in some important tows, but even the smallest dirt roads in villages and mountains. So a lot of things can be seen that exist also in other countries, but are in places outside GSV coverage there.

Well, I like red wines better and I prefer those from the Littoral like cabernet sauvignon, refošk, merlot, and teran.

Last night temperatures dropped to as low as -26C in some places in Estonia. Fortunately the sun is already high enough that during daytime it rises to -5C-ish.
