My Travels & Places I’ve been: Portoroz, Slovenia, June 2012

 In June 2012 I was in Portoroz, on Slovenia’s Adriatic coast. Portoroz is a beautiful coastal town located in the heart of Europe. It is a popular place to relax and entertain. The town began to develop already in the Roman period. Today is Portoroz full with hotels, restaurants, bars, casino, old villas and more.

 

 This is a view from my hotel room while I was in a hotel called LifeClass Hotel Riviera to be exact. :-) Everything looks so new and renovated that it gives kind of an unreal Disneyland feel to the town.

 

 Pool with sea water is located on hotels terrace :-) Night swimming in it is also possible.

 

 This is where I was trying to get some tan :-)

 

 The sea water was great and refreshing, around 24 degrees Celsius if I remember right :-)

My Travels & Places I’ve been: Umag, Croatia, August 2012

 My vacation in Umag, Croatia didn’t go exactly as planned, but I was in such a desperate state for some getaway time that it didn’t seemed to matter. I spent most of the time on the beach sunning, reading, and playing volleyball and of course swimming in the warm water of the sea.

 

 This is the apartment in which I stayed during my vacation in Umag, Croatia. The house is more than 150 years old and it has walls that are almost a meter thick.

 

 And this is the view I had from the apartment I was staying at.

 

 I usually try to find a remote beach that nobody goes there.

 

 State-of-the-art electrical wiring in the center of Umag. :-)

 

 I always save one thing for the next time. In Paris it was the visit of the Eiffel Tower, this time it was parasailing :-)

 

Crazy local guys playing football in the heating sun for hours every single day :-)

 

 A very peaceful sunset in Umag.

 

 Another peaceful sunset.

We are not important in the universe. If Earth blew up tomorrow, the universe wouldn’t care.

I’m fascinated by universe, it’s secrets and the science behind it. I truly hope great minds work together to solve some of the greatest puzzles of our time.


Why are we here? Because our parents had sex. :-) But seriously. It’s definitely one of life’s biggest mysteries, isn’t it? I mean, are we the product of some amazing cosmic coincidence, or is there really a God, watching everything, with a plan for each of us. I’ve come to believe that we just have to find our own purpose in life; pick a course and stick with it. If you want to find a handsome guy/beautiful girl, have children, and be happy, then that’s what your life means. If you want to go to college, graduate at the top of your class, and have a successful career and business, that’s your purpose. If you see something wrong with the world, and decide to change it, then that’s your purpose.

Spam filters are programs that analyze each incoming email message to determine whether the message is spam. If the filter decides that the message is spam, it reroutes the message, either to the recipient’s Junk mail folder. Spam filters scan the subject and body of the email, looking for words or phrases that are known as spam triggers or watch words, to determine whether a message is spam. Filters can also analyze the email header and the number of people on the distribution list. Many of the more sophisticated filters use a point system, in which the spam filter identifies words, phrases, or techniques commonly used in spam and assigns a score to each. Even if an email message doesn’t contain a blatant spam word or phrase, it can contain enough words that earn spam points to be filtered out and not delivered to the recipient.

Wow, that’s truly romantic and absolutely relaxing, isn’t it?


The most important part of a holiday trip is to decide the type of benefits you desire to get out of your vacation. It can be travelling around older cities, enjoying a relaxing time on the beaches or near a lake, just visiting the most popular attractions of a place with the loved ones or spend some romantic moments with your partner away from the eyes of the world.
