First Days in Split

Every morning I take a walk with Florens and we get some fresh stuff back home for breakfast. The morning ocean air, the rays of sun and pleasant warmth together with the surrounding old, older and ancient buildings makes this routine into a stream of beautiful scenes that will get etched forever and caress my ...

Last Weeks in Mostar

A good indication you've been at the right place is that you feel like you're leaving when it's about to get much better. We had a fine winter and early springtime during our stay in Mostar. We also meet and hung out with some nice people. So this is the perfect farewell for this time around, at ...

The Essence is Always Present

Tuesday, February 28, 2017 0 , Permalink

The waves you see have no effect on the deep dark and still waters that govern our society, that governs everything between the farthest away and what's inside of you. All is a habitual construction. A manner of human interaction too scared of the naked curiosity a child practices. The waves are keeping you afloat ...

Spiritual Nobility

Friday, February 24, 2017 0 , , Permalink

In our world most people have less than adequate understanding of their own workings, of our natural habitat, science and the list goes on. We can't be experts nor good in everything but we can be good intended people. The spiritual nobility has in recent years had a poster boy and that's Elon Musk. That's ...

Spring Vibes in Mostar February

The winter is gone already, and springtime is already here in Mostar. What else to call the time you already sit on the balcony and walk around in lighter jackets? We are rounding off our travels for this time, even though there's more than a month left there are practical stuff to begin with so ...

Stećci (Medieval Megalithic Tombstones) in Radimlja, Bosnia & Herzegovina

There are almost 60 000 tombstones (monoliths) like these in Bosnia & Herzegovina, called stećci. These ones in Radimlja are easy to visit, being just 3 km near Stolac. Otherwise many of them are located on high altitudes and in forests. Less than 10% actually have any inscriptions or reliefs at all and in Bosnia ...

Ancient Megalithic Site of Daorson in Bosnia & Herzegovina

A good time to visit the site of Daorson is in the spring and autumn, because the heat and the vegetation can limit your movement and put you at risk for snakes. The ancient megalithic ruins are located on top of the high hill in Ošanić where it is believed that settlements have existed ever since ...

‘An Insignificant Man’ in the Animal Farm

As a documentary film, An Insignificant Man delivers a very rich, dramatic and in parts tragic portrayal of a political movement in India. Offering a great insight into the process of idealism being filtered through politics. When compromises advance some people and some ideas, while leaving behind others. At the center is Arvind Kejriwal who was followed ...

Mostar Aircraft Hangar

I visited the former secret aircraft hangar outside of Mostar in Gojnice. It's abandoned and for me the experience was that of an magnificent echo chamber. There are several objects like these in Bosnia, abandoned and remnants of the former Yugoslavian army. Enormously expensive as they were most are not in use now - like the ...

Yugoslavian Space Program – An Electronic Compilation Gem, or More if You Want

This compilation album is a fraction of the electronic music made in former (or current day imaginative) Yugoslavia. The album is rooted in the dreamy nostalgic visions and ideas that old and young x-yuggies have about what Yugoslavia could have been, could have become - not what it was or ended up in. One has ...

‘Häxan’ by Dungen

In August of 2014 I saw Dungen perform an amazing live music set to the silent animated film The Adventures of Prince Achmed (1926). The show left everyone yearning for more, as the concert was so present, dynamic and rich in good psych vibes - and all Dungen lovers got the best out of the band instrumentally. ...

Late November, Early December in Mostar

Since we arrived in Mostar I've been busy getting practical things done. The weather has been really good, a late week in November was sunny with 20 C during the day, which we fully enjoyed. But even after that, the temperature is of a milder winter, the skies are beautiful and the sun shines often. ...

Julian Jay Savarin & Great Progressive Rock

I want to keep an artists name alive in this post, it's Julian Jay Savarin. Who was a Dominican-British musician and released two amazing psychedelic rock albums and besides that also wrote some sci-fi books. He came to the UK in 1962 and studied history and served in the Royal Air Force. But there's really nothing ...
