Foreigner toll at autobahn in Germany: Even though this change is planned to be implemented 2019 or 2020 some people say that the foreign toll must be payed already now. So what is the real true?

In the end of June and beginning of July 2018 our Magazine visited and explored the Autobahn (Highways) in Germany. Thanks to some earlier experiences we decided to check how it is to drive there again. We drove from Rostock in the north to Munich and Austrian border in the south.

My description of Germany has always been that Germany is a Gentleman country. Not because it is a country for men only, but because Gentleman is a word that describes something good and positive and creates an inviting feeling. That is why I always have felt that this way of describing this European country is the right one.

Foreigner_toll_at_autobahn_in_Germany_Autobahn

Wide and open highway on the way to Munich. The recommended speed is 130km/h but otherways there are no speed limits on many places in Germany.

 

Foreigner toll or vignettes at autobahn

I have passed through Germany with the car around 20 times in the period of 1998 – 2009. At that time driving through this big country was for free. Suddenly it became decided that a foreigner toll will be introduced in Germany. That kind of rumors I could hear from some different corners.

Foreigner_toll_at_autobahn_in_Germany_Tunnel

Tunnel in Austria on the highway A10 between Salzburg and Villach.  In Austria all drivers must buy a vignette for highways and pay for some tunnels.

 

So, now, also this Gentleman country decided to become a country as other small ones who need money from toll or vignettes to be able to survive and take care of their highways and tunnels. According to some Internet articles this change “is expected to be” realized 2019 or 2020.

Foreigner_toll_at_autobahn_in_Germany_Vignette

Vignette for highways in Austria. Similar ones you can buy in other countries like Slovenia or Switzerland. Will also Germany become one of those countries?

 

We can easily ask ourselves why the German Bundestag has decided something like this. It is very possible that their financial status has become weaker than before. Maybe they need some back up in form of money that comes from drivers. Since the number of active drivers is very high we can guess that millions of Euros that come in from drivers as extra income is very good for the country.

 

So no more Gentlemen country feeling when visiting Germany – can that be true?

Luckily ordinary people do not like this change. It is understandable that small countries use this kind of income because they are small and all drivers can drive through without paying anything, e.g. paying for gas or similar. In Germany on the other side we all have to stay and buy gas and/or food at least one time during the trip through the whole country.

Foreigner_toll_at_autobahn_in_Germany_Rastplatz

Frankenwald Rastplats at A9 highway in the central Germany. Everyone has to stay and buy gas and/or food at least one time on places like this.

 

Even though this change is planned to be implemented 2019 or 2020 some people say that the foreign toll must be payed already now. On the other side, people we asked on the ferry between Sweden and Germany said that the highway does not cost. So what is the real true?

The real true is that we still can drive through whole Germany without paying for that and that is great. At least that is something for cars (PKW) and motorcycles. We did not investigate how it is with trucks (LKW) or other bigger vehicles but according to www.tolls.eu/germany it seems that vehicles weighing 7,5 tons or more must pay.

Foreigner_toll_at_autobahn_in_Germany_Irschenberg

Irschenberg – highway A8 between Munich and Salzburg in Austria. Everyone simply can enjoy driving here. Why destroy that great feeling of freedom?

 

So, everyone can enjoy the freedom when driving in Germany. Here are the obvious reasons:

  • No speed limits on highways
  • Great enviroment all around
  • You don’t have to pay – yet

 

We also heard from some people that all cars with none-German registration number must pay some kind of environment taxes when visiting German cities but we did not investigate this. We will leave that outside of this article even though the source is reliable.

Pink Dragon Ladies Team Sweden: Who are the Pink Dragon Ladies Team Sweden? What is The IBCPC Dragon Boat Festival in Florence?

Have you ever asked yourself who those paddling ladies in pink clothes in Malmö are?  What are they representing? Who are the Pink Dragon Ladies Team Sweden? In the beginning of July 2018 our Magazine followed this great team from Sweden on their trip and Dragon Boat races in Florence (Firenze) in Italy. More information about them you can find at their official website: www.pinkdragonladies.se . In this article we write about them and the IBCPC Dragon Boat Festival in Italy.

In this team we can see women who have experienced breast cancer. They come from different parts of Sweden and they belong different age groups, but in this team they are all together. They are one team and together they wanted to win in Florence. According to the information that we find at http://www.florencebcs2018.org we can explain like this:

The IBCPC Dragon Boat Festival is held every four years under the auspices of the International Breast Cancer Paddler’s Commission. The Festival is an international non-competitive participatory event targeting Breast Cancer Survivors teams who engage in Dragon Boat activities as post-operative rehabilitation.

 

The Pink Parade of Nations

One very interesting part of this festival is The Pink Parade of Nations and that is what we followed from the start to the end.

Pink Dragon Ladies Team Sweden Parade1

The IBCPC Dragon Boat Festival Pink Parade of Nations in Florence – Here we can see the happy Swedish team walking on the streets of the central city.

 

The Pink Parade of Nations In Florence started at Piazza Pitti where all teams from different countries from the whole world gathered together and started walking towards Piazza della Signoria where they finally could hear and sing their own national anthems.

Pink Dragon Ladies Team Sweden Parade2

Pink Dragon Ladies Team Sweden started the parade with all other teams from different countries from the whole world at Piazza Pitti in Florence.

 

The  Pink Dragon Ladies Team Sweden succeeded very well in all races

On July 4th they had a warming up training with their Dragon boats in the Arno river. The river is right in the middle of the Cascine Park that is Florence’s largest public park with an area of about 130 hectares.

The temperature outside was very high but nothing could stop the warming up training. Everyone simply wanted to do their best in the races. They ignored the heat and enjoyed.

On July 7th and 8th there were two races where 129 teams participated. The Pink Dragon Ladies Team Sweden was among the faster ones which was good result thanks to the hard training sessions in Malmö.

Pink Dragon Ladies Team Sweden Race

We decided to use this image only so we can remember the moment when our Swedish ladies were on their way to the start line at the Arno river.

 

At the end, all participants got their medals and they all together could feel one and same winner-feeling. Before the closing ceremony there was a BCS Flower Ceremony which was a great experience for each one participant. Everyone threw a flower in the Arno river and many feelings were in the air. We also could see some tears.

 

Restaurants with great and tasty food

Before and after the races but also during all days in Florence, all teams enjoyed in different restaurants with great and tasty food. Italian or other but it was very good. Some of the restaurants can be found close to the Brunelleschi’s Dome .

Before and after the races and also during all days in Florence, all teams enjoyed in different restaurants with great and tasty food.

 

Also we, Justfindit.se Magazine took every opportunity to enjoy the food and ice creams in every corner of this beautiful city. One more detail now at the end of this story: One day, when we did not follow our Pink Dragon Ladies Team Sweden, we visited Viareggio, a city on the  Mediterranean coast and enjoyed some swim. On the way back to Florence we also visited Pisa and the famous Tower in Pisa.

Search power in online searches: Begacom IT Business made a mistake and let the SearchIn plugin be better than search engine at Justfindit.se in searches in WordPress. In this case we particularly mean search phrases that contain more than one word.

According to an earlier article in this magazine, Search engine Justfindit.se – what is new?  Begacom IT Business took over development of the search engine at Justfindit.se . Besides that this company also created SearchIn plugin for WordPress. Among others this plugin is somehow interesting. If we look at the technology behind this plugin and search engine mentioned above, the plugin contains just a little part of the whole system.

Shortly explained, both search engine and SearchIn plugin have function that searches and finds results in a website site created in WordPress. But there is a difference. Begacom IT Business made a mistake and let that little plugin be better than search engine in searches in WordPress. In this case we particularly mean search phrases that contain more than one word.

If you search with the same word combination in both SearchIn plugin and search engine you will notice the difference both in quality of results and speed.

Search power in online searches-SearchInPlugin

Searching for “Find a better experience” phrase in SearchIn plugin gives the right article as number one in the search result: Foursquare – what is that?   .

 

 

Search power in online searches -justfindit.se

Searching for “Find a better experience” phrase in the search engine does not give the right article as number one in the search result.

 

As it is now Begacom IT Business has the intention to remove this ”bug” and the company promises improvement since the search engine at Justfindit.se is expected to generate exact results as SearchIn plugin because they both use same technology when searching in content in WordPress database.

This difference was discovered some time after the previous version of SearchIn plugin was developed and it was developed for searches with more than one word. Today, in the latest one version there is same functionality so the last change/update has no impact on search power.

Begacom IT Business simply must clone its own technology that is in SearchIn plugin and put it in to the search engine if the goal is that both give same results when searching in WordPress database.

When are we old? Living life instead of accepting the fact that we physically are becoming older than before could be a good way of feeling that we still are not old. That positive way of looking on our lives could definitely prolong our lives because we actively choose to avoid all negative thoughts that sometimes can come in different ages, especially in the later part of the life.

When are we old? That is something that many of us wonder at least one time in life. Normally our age says how young or old we are but it is not always that a specific amount of years is crucial in this situation.

Just look around yourself. As you can see many different people you also can think about many different destinies. If we put focus on the people who look like being in our age we can try to guess how people feel when talking about age. If we compare it to how we feel then it probably can show us what level we are on.

What can have a positive impact on how old we feel? Adventures? Ideas? If we want to experience something new, maybe realize some dream and if that is something strong inside us then we easily can say that we still young are. Or, we can say: we are not as old as many other people in our age are.

Living life instead of accepting the fact that we physically are becoming older than before could be a good way of feeling that we still are not old. That positive way of looking on our lives could definitely prolong our lives because we actively choose to avoid all negative thoughts that sometimes can come in different ages, especially in the later part of the life.

When are we old?

Image found at www.mattmorris.com.  Living life instead of accepting that we physically are becoming older than before can have a positive impact on us.

 

How old are you then? Do you feel tired or lazy and do you prefer to take it easy instead of dreaming about and actually planning to do something new and different?

When are we old? We are different and the ideal picture of how our lives should be is different from person to person so if we feel old or not in some specific age is actually also possible to see from our ideal picture of the life.

Finally, try to not feel old and try to choose to do something more challenging than you normally should do on daily basis and you will feel the difference. You will partly feel younger than you are and that can change your view on the life.

Interior design: Are you someone who enjoys decorating a house or an apartment or any other area? If yes then places like this can be an inspiration source for you. If not then maybe you can get some ideas anyways while sitting there and enjoying your coffee.

Inside a great newly opened Espresso House in Copenhagen we discovered a great and fresh interior design. We decided to visit this place and explore its relaxing atmosphere and we noticed how some fresh ideas can make difference.

On one side there is a big and wide window area so people can look outside and have an overview of what happens on the street. On another side there is a big wall, an area, decorated with many different details placed on a big book shelf that is hanging there. If you like reading a book or if you prefer working with your laptop then this place can offer you good atmosphere for that.

Is this job the right one or not? When we get a job we then have a great opportunity to create new contact network and get new experience. From that point of view we then can look around us and see if that is the right place for us.

Can we ever be sure that the job we are doing is the right one? What are the signs that we should look at to be sure that we have made a right choice? For most of us it is very important to get a foot in to some business. Mostly it is because we have to start somewhere if we do not have other options.

When we get a job we then have a great opportunity to create new contact network and get new experience. From that point of view we then can look around us and see if that is the right place for us. What is it that tells us whether we are on the right place or not? Here are some of the signs that we carefully should look at:

1. Do we enjoy coming to our office?
2. Do we like our colleagues and do they respect us?
3. Do we look forward going home from work every day? (Everyone does that but in this case it is more like the way of showing that that is crucial.)
4. Are we tired of our work and what is the real reason for that?
5. Do we actively search for some new job within the company or somewhere else?
6. Do we hear negative or positive reaction about our way of working?

 

The points mentioned above are examples of questions that maybe can help us to analyze our working situation.

Is this job the right one or not?

Image found at turningpointboston.com . When we get a job we then have a great opportunity to create new contact network and get new experience.

 

It is of course great if we go to the office without any negative thoughts and it is great when we hear appreciation and positive words about our way of working. If we also feel that we have a great connection to people we work with then it should mean that we are happy in our office doing the job we do.

But does it really mean that we are happy with the job we do if we are happy with everything else in the office?

That is of course open for discussion but the conclusion we can write here is following:

If we were so unhappy with the job we do, then nothing could keep us there for a long time.

 

Sometimes we simply have to keep doing what we do just because we need money for living but if we were so unhappy with it then we probably would try to find some other solution.

Business flow online: Online customer management is something that companies use to have nowadays. Creating a customer database that can be managed both in the back end where only administrators are granted access and front end where customers can log in and get a total overview of their account is a perfect beginning. 

Online customer management is something that companies use to have nowadays. We can see different kind of websites that belong to some company. Independent of it it is web shop or if it is any other online service. For getting help or for becoming a client we are required to register our account. And that is good, that is actually a way of letting our future customers or clients become a part of our business.

In September 2017 we wrote an article about Customer relationship management . We mentioned business flow and websites that can manage that.

Business flow online

Business flow online: Image found at appliedcashflow.com . Online customer management is something that companies use to have nowadays.

 

Of course it is not simple to create a system that can satisfy all our needs but the important detail is how to manage the customers and their data online.

Creating a customer database that can be managed both in the back end where only administrators are granted access and front end where customers can log in and get a total overview of their account is a perfect beginning. Afterwards this system can be edited and improved with new possibilities.

For keeping our online business flow go on we have to keep our system checked and updated so we avoid possible bugs. We also have to be aware of customer’s activities in case they order some service so we have to be able to act fast and correct so both parts get what they expect.

Scandinavian winter in February and March: Let say that this article should remind us how nice winter can be. Darkness, lights and snow. That is what we get in winter only. So, enjoy it folks!

If you love cities, or metropolises, you will always be impressed by all details that you can see or experience there. Just take Copenhagen as an example. Great Scandinavian city. Lights and shadows all around us. Looking out from some window in a office building close to Tivoli or anywhere else we can see how decorated the city can be.

In summer time, the swimming bridge is full of people laying down and enjoying the sunshine that covers the whole city.

Scandinavian winter in February

When a working day is over, looking outside from the office gives us a wonderful view – The swimming bridge in Copenhagen.

 

Now in winter when everything is dark and cold, we can see colorful lights that cover the bridge and creates nice reflexes on the water surface below. Copenhagen is alive also during the dark and cold February/March. It can also be very bright when it gets some snow.

Scandinavian winter in February

When some snow suddenly covers this big city and its streets. After a long,dark, cold and rainy winter this is just a perfect view for winter lovers.

 

Winter is almost close to its end but this time suddenly we also could see and experience some snow in southern Scandinavia caused by cold weather that came to the central Europe from central and northern Russia.

Scandinavian winter in February

Malmö in Sweden, just some kilometers over the Baltic sea when you look from Copenhagen. Surprising nice and great view from some window.

 

Hopefully everyone could enjoy these great Scandinavian moments, probably the last moments with snow during the relatively long en endless winter 2017/2018.

Scandinavian winter in February

Malmö in Sweden, just some kilometers over the Baltic sea when you look from Copenhagen. When also bikes were covered by the wonderful snow.

 

Let say that this article should remind us how nice winter can be. Darkness, lights and snow. When you are tired of all windy and rainy days, suddenly you can feel how real winter surprises you with snow and all great moments that normally come with it.

Scandinavian winter in February

Afternoon hours in February/March 2018. If you love metropolises, you will always be impressed by all details that you can see or experience there.

 

That is something that we can not experience in summer time. That is what we get in winter only. So, enjoy it folks!

Jahorina and me – 30 years of love: I was there with the ski club 1988 and this time, 2018, I enjoyed being there again thinking of all nice days 30 years ago. The fog that covered almost the whole mountain was there all four days.

I remember 1984 in Sarajevo. I was just a kid but I remember that winter and the Winter Olympic Games. That was also my first time I visited Jahorina mountain (1914 meters above the sea level) outside of Sarajevo. After the Olympic Games my brother and me begun our ski training. Thanks to our parents we could join Ski Club Sarajevo (SSK – Sarajevski Smucarski Klub) and that was very nice experience.

Unfortunately we had to stop because different circumstances such as political problems and war in Yugoslavia.

After that I always dreamed about Jahorina and skiing there. My first time skiing there after the war was 2009. I was there one day in the end of 2014 or 2015 (I can not remember which of those years) and my third time was now, February 2018. I visited Jahorina with my wife, our kid and my wife’s cousin and his wife and kid. We stayed at hotel Vucko three nights and it was great.

Unfortunately, the weather on Jahorina was not so friendly. The fog that covered almost the whole mountain was there all four days.

Jahorina and me

Jahorina and me – 30 years of love: I visited almost all points that I recognized in the thick fog that covered almost the whole mountain during all four days.

 

But the fog did not stop me. I could experience Jahorina once again. I found our old ski lift called Olimpik in Rajska Dolina, a very nice part of the mountain.

Jahorina and me

Jahorina and me – 30 years of love: Our old ski lift called Olimpik in Rajska Dolina, a very nice part of the mountain. Also there I experienced some ski rides.

 

Olimpik and Rajska Dolina are close to Praca, also a very known part of Jahorina, so your ski ride can be prolonged and enjoyable.

Jahorina and me

Jahorina and me – 30 years of love: I was there with the ski club 1988 and this time, 2018, I enjoyed being there again thinking of all nice days 30 years ago.

 

We can say that this February on Jahorina was the 30th anniversary. I was there with the ski club 1988 and this time, 2018, I enjoyed being there again thinking of all nice days 30 years ago. Our room at hotel Vucko was great and fresh. Everything looked nice inside.

Jahorina and me

Jahorina and me – 30 years of love: We stayed at hotel Vucko three nights. We had a very comfortable room. Everything was fresh and well taken care of.

 

But it was also great and silent outside. We asked for a nice and silent room so they gave it to us.

Jahorina and me

Jahorina and me – 30 years of love: The view out from our window – that was what we wanted to experience. Snow and silence during whole 24 hours.

 

We had breakfast and dinner at the hotel and both were simply great. We could choose different kind of food, drinks and cakes. You could compare it with some kind of All Inclusive service but this one was little bit higher quality.

I hope you enjoyed reading this reportage as much as enjoyed writing it.

Train crew and Lees-entlmen: Is it true that we in our modern time have lower quality of communication, especially in public transport? We can take an example, where train crew wrongly pronounces the information. Instead of saying Ladies and Gentlemen they say this: Lees-entlmen.

Is correct language something important in our communication? Yes because it sometimes can result in misunderstanding. Is it true that we in our modern time have lower quality of communication, especially in public transport? Yes that is true. If we look at bigger areas like Öresund area where Malmö in Sweden is connected with Copenhagen in Denmark, our experience in last 10,5 years can explain everything.

At Öresunds trains in Sweden and Denmark we hear train crew speak English because they are expected to inform all passengers about the trip. Very often we sadly can hear that crew read the information fighting with pronouncing all words in Swedish, Danish but also in English. That means that they actually do not speak those languages correctly or they have not been trained properly. Also those who manage Swedish or Danish very good and speak English without problems do use wrong pronunciations in English.

We can take an example, where both groups wrongly pronounce the information. Instead of saying Ladies and Gentlemen the crew say this: Lees-entlmen.

Train crew and Lees-entlmen

Instead of saying Ladies and Gentlemen the train crew prefers to say something that sounds more cool but also wrong: Lees-entlmen.

 

We automatically wonder why it is so. Why do they pronounce it wrongly?

The answer might be found in this explanation:
