Mushroom Picking – Experience Nature and Understand Who You Are

Back in the forests of the Carpathian Mountains of East Slovakia, this time looking for birch bolete and cep (porcini) mushrooms. After seeing the prices of cep (and we’re not going to even mention black or white truffles) in the Italian speaking Istria region of Croatia, and how much visitors are charged to spend aContinue reading “Mushroom Picking – Experience Nature and Understand Who You Are”

A living aquarium. Join me under the waves in the Adriatic Sea as I snorkel and observe the marine life off the coast of Cesarica, Croatia. There is so much life on this planet, on land, in the air and in the sea. Escape from the grind of urban life for one hour and justContinue reading “Underwater Therapy – 1 Hour of relaxing aquatic film from snorkelling in the Adriatic Sea, fish”

Nikola Tesla – Origins of the Creator of the Modern World

A homage to one of the greatest minds which ever lived, Nikola Tesla. Inventor of the modern world, but not the one we live in sadly. His altruistic concepts for the good of humanity were taken and used by those with ulterior motives, mostly greed and power. I visited his birthplace as a sort ofContinue reading “Nikola Tesla – Origins of the Creator of the Modern World”

Dolphins in Croatia – watching Bottleneck Dolphins from my terrace in Cesarica, Karlobag

We don’t always get to see them. Last time we were in the next village and we didn’t, but the time before that we actually encountered them whilst kayaking out on the sea near Karlobag in Croatia. These are Bottlenose Dolphins (Tursops truncatus), and sadly there are only about 220 left in Croatian waters. SeeingContinue reading “Dolphins in Croatia – watching Bottleneck Dolphins from my terrace in Cesarica, Karlobag”

Experiences Over Possessions – life is for trying not buying

I was inspired to make this video after watching several excellent videos from the Youtuber Fearless and Far (https://www.youtube.com/c/MikeCorey). The expression he uses, “Experiences over possessions”, and his attitude towards life, travel and other cultures is in great contrast to the modern disposable commercial Weltanschauung pushed onto society. He also reminds me a lot ofContinue reading “Experiences Over Possessions – life is for trying not buying”

Carpathian Adventure Motorcycle Ride – First Ride of 2021

A quick ride through Chernarus, almost… Sometimes you need to take a step back from getting too involved with all the negativity, chaos, lies and propaganda that hammer away at us daily. Sometimes you just need to let yourself feel free for a while, feel the wind and the elements. In this video I takeContinue reading “Carpathian Adventure Motorcycle Ride – First Ride of 2021”

I Have The Right – Declaration of Freedom from the Tao of Prepping

Every human is born a free individual, we’re just convinced from birth that we’re not. That we’re somehow less than someone else, or that we’re guilty of some ancient sin. Everyone has rights, they just don’t know it. And the way to exercise those rights – freedom of choice, freedom of expression, freedom to leaveContinue reading “I Have The Right – Declaration of Freedom from the Tao of Prepping”

Top 10 Motorcycle Movies – The Best Motorbike Films

The debate as to which films featuring motorcycles are the best is one that has been raging for decades, and will probably never be answered – at least objectively.
