Solving tech problems

Osaka, Japan

Leisure and Pleasure

Osaka is an enormous metropolis with almost 20 million inhabitants when you include the nearby cities, yet everything functions as if it were a much smaller city—traffic, metro, and train connections. We had a very nice hotel with an Italian restaurant at the bottom, which we used only on the last day while waiting for our departure to the airport. You should definitely eat Japanese food in Japan as it is also healthy—a lot of seafood, no bread, smaller portions, and many soups (miso soup, udon noodle soup, ramen, etc.)….read more

Takamatsu and Naoshima island

Leisure and Pleasure

After Kyoto, we went to Takamatsu city and Naoshima island. It was a great train experience, crossing many bridges and islands, always near the sea. On the way to our hotel, we saw a great mini-restaurant with an old grandmother who was closing her Udon noodle restaurant. It looked great, and she cooked and worked only from 11:00 to 14:00. When we arrived at our hotel, the girls at the reception desk were genuinely surprised that we arrived as tourists to their town, and even more so when they heard…read more

Kyoto, Japan

Leisure and Pleasure

From Sapporo, we went to Kyoto by Shinkansen train, and the travel scenery was great. It was the warmest in Kyoto during our three-week Japan vacation (around 36 degrees) with 100% humidity. We missed the nice weather in Hokkaido, where we enjoyed 25 degrees. We were all sweating a lot; I had a wet towel around my neck, mostly to clean the sweat from my bald head under a NY Yankees baseball cap. The city is very big, part of one enormous metropolis with Osaka and other cities around, but…read more

Hokkaido and Sapporo

Leisure and Pleasure

After Tokyo, we went to Hokkaido island and activated our RailPass, using the Shinkansen bullet train that travels up to 350 km/h. There is also the Seikan Tunnel, which connects Hokkaido with Honshu island and is about 54 km long. It is the second deepest and second longest tunnel in the world. We stayed in Sapporo, a city of 2 million people, which looks like it was built just a few days ago (all new buildings). For some reason, we noticed that a few more people stared at us (maybe…read more

Okinawa, Japan

Leisure and Pleasure

Okinawa, an archipelago in southern Japan, is renowned for its stunning natural beauty, vibrant cultural heritage, and rich history. Known for its crystal-clear waters, lush landscapes, and unique blend of Japanese and indigenous Ryukyuan traditions, Okinawa captivates visitors with its enchanting scenery and warm hospitality.

Beautiful Seychelles

Leisure and Pleasure

A lot of people have prejudices that having Summer vacation at Seychelles is something super expensive but they are wrong. Croatia is maybe more expensive now and Winter in Seychelles still has better and warmer weather and warmer sea. We had a great two weeks here and really enjoyed by visiting three islands: Mahe, Praslin and La Digue. Some prices: And now some nice images (and this is definitely not a place you should visit only once in your life) 🙂

Trip to Ireland

Leisure and Pleasure

We took an airplane from Venice to Dublin (duration 2:45) and here is on photo above the Alps. After arriving in Dublin airport we took a bus to Galway. Trip took around 3 hours and we went for late dinner (after check-in). Few photos from Galway: In the morning we have a breakfast – I choose some Irish type: I went to pick-up the rented car (half hour of walk from the hotel) and tried to adapt quickly on right-hand side driving. It was not as difficult as I expected,…read more

Plitvice lakes in Winter

Leisure and Pleasure

We went to Plitvice lakes on 18th February 2023 for two reasons: Always wanted to see it in Winter and to see some snow, but we didn’t have it much (the good thing is that all paths were opened) The entrance tickets are cheapest in this period and for small family of 3 it is around 30€ (in full season around 100€) Here are some photos…

ADIDAS is failing BIG!

Leisure and Pleasure, Thoughts

As much as I loved Adidas sneakers (since I was kid, from original Wimbledon and Universal model) I must tell you that I hate this “shit quality” direction they are aiming. By devoting so much money in marketing and paying these professional athletes ridiculous amount of money they are directly failing us, old customers. You can not remove all you production facilities into Asia (China, Bangladesh, Vietnam…) and sell us some shitty plastic low quality products. Don’t be a hunk, open only 1 factory in Europe and start producing jus…read more
