I made around 5 000 kilometers en route Krakow-Rome-Napoli-Arbelobello-Matera-Ravello-Amalfi-Positano-Sorrento-Rome-Krakow.

Driving in Napoli and Rome is crazy

Later maybe i will put some photos.

Quoting from the other thread. Do you sometimes use "tourist crap"? I am alergic with it, but I admit that in Warszawa this summer I couldn't resist not to rent electric scooter and I acted like a real fool (or real tourist) on the streets with it.

This is an issue in many cities. There are too many vehicle categories, each with their own specific problems.

Bicycles, electric bicycles, fast electric bicycles, transport bikes, mopeds, scooters, electric scooters, one-wheel scooters, segways, mobility scooters, electric rickshaws, electric cargo carriages, etc, all at different speeds in the same space.

I guess you mean kick scooters because we also have rental electric motor scooters, those motorcycle-ones.

English is weird here for having one word for two very different vehicles.

If so, then I happen to use one just for commuting in Lodz, not for tourism.

spam

Dutch mailboxes, in this case at an apartment building. Notice all the 'NEE NEE' or 'NEE JA' stickers. (NO, NO or NO, YES)

These stickers indicate whether the addressee wants to receive either all printed advertisements, or only free serials (called a 'door-to-door paper'), or nothing at all.

If you don't have a NEE NEE sticker, you'll end up with a stack of printed advertisement and free papers each week (you may want to call it printed spam).

I have a NEE NEE (NO, NO) sticker myself. I have almost no waste paper in my household.

In Italy in my building we have a sign stating "this building does not want spam in the mailboxes", but it's regularly ignored.

Does the building have the authority to say that? I’d think it would be up to the individual residents. (My 86-year-old mother actually looks at circulars. She’s old-school.)

@Chris: Is it normal in the Netherlands to not show names next to the mail boxes? I only see numbers, it seems odd to me. You will not find this in Belgium in appartment buildings, the name will always be one the mail box.


Similar to the Dutch in Belgium and the stickers are provided by the city hall with the city logo and reference to the local police regulations. You can actually file a complaint if they ignore your preferences.

Also note the clear difference in formal (Belgium) and non formal (Netherlands) use of language wich is typical in daily things.



1°NO ADVERTISEMENT PRESS-WORK (a.u.b = als het u belieft = "if one pleases" or "if it pleases you")
Art.53 of the police regulation

2°NO UNADRESSED ADVERTISEMENT PRESS-WORK
Art.12 of the police regulation

Okay, so according to this article, the French people, once twice-yearly time changes are abolished, want to stay on summer time year-round. The Dutch want to stay in winter time. Which would put the Netherlands and hour behind France. Which is geographically absurd.

How likely is that to actually happen?

Usually the names are displayed on the intercom system, where you can push a button next to the number + name. The mailboxes of apartment complexes tend to be right next to them.

Physical mail is old-fashioned. I can go 10 or 15 days without receiving anything, I don't have subscriptions, don't receive printed spam and most government correspondence is digital nowadays.

I empty my mail box once a week. Usually there is about 2-3 letters in there for me - because we are bit more old fashioned overhere, or rather outdated if you will. The latest today, ironically was the yearly personal income tax -.-

The building has the authority but it must be ruled in a building meeting, which (I'm not sure about that) must be unanimous.

I think Italy will be summer time year-round as well.
What is going to happen is that we are still going to have two time zones, but North-South instead of East-West

That'll create more problems than it solves.... It wouldn't surprise me if any action would be pushed back, perhaps indefinitely.

The whole debate has convinced me to believe that the current system is the least worst. Opinion polls are considered unreliable because the outcome depends heavily on the time of year the opinion poll is taken, as well as the wording and explanation of the scenarios.

The Dutch government did a poll with an error, stating that during summer time, the sun would set at 8 p.m. which in reality is 10 p.m., after which they asked if people favor permanent winter time, which most people did. Despite this critical error that likely significantly influenced the outcome, they assured that the poll outcome was considered reliable....

I think the least worst system would be everyone keeping their winter time (or summer time) year-round.

I think in Poland it would be considered a privacy violation if people were told to do that.

It's weird that Germans are known for caring a lot about privacy but they always place the names at the mailboxes and bell/entry phone buttons, and it's actually problematic to get mail if you don't have your name there.

A similar absurd you have with the German island Corfu and Albania. Corfu is west of Albania but it's 1 hour ahead, as Albania is Central European Time and Greece is Eastern European Time.

I have no problems with the current summer winter time system in Europe. No reason for changes.

The time system is not relevant. What is relevant for people is when do they go to bed and when do they get up. You won't solve this though, because there are various office hours and people working in shifts are anyway screwed. On top of that you would need to adjust to any period of year and latitude.
