On Saturday after work I was on my way to Šmarje pri Jelšah, where my friend Rok, was hosting an Y Institute picnic by the Church of Saint Rok.

It’s about a two-hour drive to get to this place in the north-east part of Slovenia. And on the way there I was truly impressed by the beauty of my home country. It’s been a really pleasant drive, especially with the thoughts in mind of meeting the people, members of the Y Institute, friends . . . for I think first time this year. Was a joyful feeling.

The Ypsilon Institute

I like to spend time with these kind of people.
The Y Institute is an organization of young individuals functioning on these core aims:

  • combining the most talented representatives of Generation Y in various fields,
  • education, awareness and integration of members at our exciting events,
  • striking opinions and active participation in solving contemporary social problems,
  • networking Generation Y with other generations,
  • implementation of socially useful projects and developing interesting products.

And it truly is different to have a fun picnic with like-minded, proactive individuals. Exchanging ideas, future plans, sharing interesting experiences on the path of each-ones passions. It motivates me to success of others and the progresses. And how they overcome their challenges and temptations. It really gians some insights and ideas about my developing ideas. Love it. Really nice people of the Ypsilon Institute.

And the best thing of all is, that all these young people are focused enough to be successful and still at the same time relaxed enough to have a relaxing picnic party. Perfect combination.

I should’ve left earlier, as I had a business meeting the next morning, but it was just too interesting meeting these people to leave. Yet that time has came. But effeminately looking forward to our next adventure; Kite-surfing on Neretva river with Kaikala.

Will be so much fun.

After the fun time we had drawing on the beach, we have decided to move our snail house (camper van) to my favorite cliff spot in the Peniche area, Batel.

We stopped in the super market Continete on the way, to buy everything we needed for a nice fish picnic diner evening.

I really love this kind of dinner. Surrounded by nature and the creativity of cooking with the cooperation of the natural element, for crating a great meal.

And this kind of food is just the most tasty of them all. I do this kind of dinner in the summer at home too. Just drive to one place with a friend or two after work, make a fire, bake some sausages, swim in the river . . . it’s just the best!

The Fishes and the Brazilian backed brad were soon ready to become a pure sensation of pleasure in the mouth. And we truly enjoyed it with,  for me, the best Portuguese beer Sagres. Some people preffer Super Bock, but Ssagres is just more drinkable and therefore more enjoyable.

Adding to the sensations of tasty food, there was a spectacular sight of the sun sinking into the ocean. There were the sound of the ocean waves smashing in to the rocky cliffs below and the pleasant, easy reggae music playing . . . was just a soul-satisying monment.

Defenately The place to be . . .

I saw this advertisement for Corona beer on my way to the airport to fly to my home country Slovenia. On my last day of a 2 months long journey, where I have discovered that London, Portugal, The World is . . . my place to be.
Realy special moment for the last day of the journey on that station in London.

Mostly because of the song “From Places Where You’d Rather Be”  that is associated to this advertisement. This song always reminds me of moments like this, on that day . . . miles away

And this video . . . speechless

Thank you Živa and Nina,
for the great soul moments of that day.
