Friday Photo: Lake Bled, Slovenia


I had every intention of writing more this week.  It was a strange week, being away, not really able to have my mind on personal things and then the days just evaporated and I found myself on Friday again.  But honestly for adventurous as it sounded of a week I took no photos so I really strangely have nothing new of note to share either.  I have a … [Read more...]

Friday Photo: The Choice of a Communist Generation


It’s not coke, it’s not Pepsi, it’s Cockta, the Yugoslavia homegrown cola beverage that came about at a time when foreign colas were difficult to obtain and they were looking for a viable competitor as well.  I always love trying locally produced food and drinks of the areas I’m traveling to.
