Thank you all, I know now how to ask for the town if I'm lost in the middle of Slovenia :wink: And I know another thing: I'll never learn Slovenian :lol:
I know some words of Croatian, I spent a couple of weeks a summer some time ago there... Croatian must be similar to Slovenian, isn't it? I only know how they're pronounced, but in fact I have no idea of what most of them mean: (phonetic writing :wink:)
Colico costa (How much is it?)
Dobro dosli/dobro iutro/dobar dan.... (It must be something like good morning/welcome and...I don't know)
Hvala (thanks)
And the best words in Croatian: Borek (od sila/od mesa)- Those nice meat and cheese cakes... delicious :P
Anyway, I hope I can be understood there with English and/or Italian and/or body language :wink:

... and I'll never learn Spanish, I'm quite certain about that :wink:

About Croatian - it's quite similar to Slovenian, perhaps like Spanish / Portuguese :?: So you can use the phrases that you learned in Croatia:

dobro dosli - welcome
dobro iutro - good morning (till about 9 o'clock)
dobar dan - buenos dias :wink:
(good afternoon doesn't exist in Slovenian)

hvala - thanks

And the best words in Croatian: Borek (od sila/od mesa)
It's burek, not borek (od siRa/ od mesa) (sirov / mesni in Slov.)

You can get delicious burek at Bled, in Pekarna (bakery) Planika, Presernova cesta 11. Worth it's euros :D

Italian is spoken and understood in the coastal region of Slovenia, while English is useful anywhere here - foreigners say that in general we speak quite a good English. Body talk also helps, of course :lol:

Well, these are our final plans for our trip to Austria/Slovenia next week!

30- Arrive to Venice, spend one night there
31- Travelling from Venice to Bohinjska Bistrica by car after lunch (we have to spend at least one morning in Venice :wink: ) Arriving there and buying food :P
1- Visit to lake Bohinj and Bled (and eating nice Borek there :wink: )and surroundings. Make a little trecking
2- Visit to Postojna caves, Predjama castle and a city that I've read in a guide I bought that has 3 ring walls whose name I can't remember but is supposed to be nearby.
3- Visit to Ljubljana, Skofja Loka and Kranj
4- Travelling to Graz early in the morning (so we can make more dothunting during the trip :P ), spend the day and sleep there
5- Travelling to Salzburg early again, sleep there.
6- Possible express visit to München before going back to Venice where the plane leaves at night to Madrid

So if you think that we're missing something important that could be near that zone of Slovenia, please let me know... I'm sad because I've seen soooooo many beautiful things in Slovenia... Ptuj, Celje, Maribor, Piran... I'll have to go back in the near future.

And I also have a couple of questions:
- How is the weather there these days? Because I've seen in Eurosport that there are ski competitions going by there... :?
- How much is the fuel there? Is it cheaper in Italy or in Austria? Our rented car is supposed to be Diesel, but you never know...

Well, anyway, I'm sure that we'll have a nice time there in Slovenia, so I just hope that you'll be able to find some of the hundreds of notes that I'll leave there :D And if you see an Italian rented car with a couple of young people with a face of WOW!, show an €note or shout pepitopulpito, if it's me, I'll answer! :wink:

Thanks for helping me to plan my travel!

We had some snow in the last couple of days, but now it's quite sunny. For the next few days I think it will be cloudy and maybe some rain. For the time that you will spend here I have no idea :D

Fuel prices
95: 1,015 EUR
98: 1,024 EUR
diesel: 0,929 EUR

It's about 20c cheaper than in Italy.

Enjoy your stay and leave some notes also in the Soča valley if you can :wink:

Thank you!
Fuel prices are only one €cent more expensive than here in Spain... So it's OK...
I'll try to change as many notes as I can, bu there are difficulties:
- I can't carry with me 1 million €, first of all because I don't have them :wink:
- My girlfriend patience has a limit... I'll try to play my cards until that limit :P

Thank you again!

I think I need to explain how I managed to get so many hits with one single
Slovenian.

I wanted to buy Slovenian coins over the internet, and I met a person from
Ljubljana who wanted to sell me some Slovenian coins. I decided to send him
the money in a registered letter, to increase my chances to get a hit with
Slovenia, and to increase the chances for the Slovenians to get an international
hit. I decided to send two hit bills as well, they might become triple hits... :roll:

But I didn't know he was a Eurobilltracker as well, and vice versa! 8O

This resulted in two triple hits and several normal hits, so now there are
several potential triple hits and even two potential quadruple hits in Slovenia!
I wish you good luck with finding them! 8)

Could somebody of you be so kind to post a Slovenian translation in the
Zadetki topic (this is where hits are celebrated and discussed, right?)? I
want to explain this to all of you, and since I don't speak a word Slovenian
I would be very grateful! :wink:

Greetings,

A very surprised Elmo.

Of course you can eat burek (if you'll manage to find it on Bled), but note that famous food of Bled is special cream pie called kremna rezina or kremšnita.

After aa almost springlike winter we are now having a spell of rather cold and windy weather. But the outlook for the next week is better, it's supposed to get warmer again.
