Of six bulls and an idiot

First thing that crossed my mind was that I was an idiot. Honestly, how else can you describe a man whose alarm clock starts shouting at five in the morning. On a vacation.

The unspoiled continent – Part VI – Time to go home

It wasn’t fear.

It was a growing realization that I have made a challenge to something very powerful and that it was going to show up in its best shape. Now the question was – was I up to it?

The unspoiled continent – Part V – The party at the glacier

So, yeah, that whole thing with the Ukrainians was pretty surreal. A pub in Antarctica? Are you kidding me?

Yet, this one felt different. That wooden sign in Ushuaia’s port said “Fin del mundo” with authority and [...]

Baskija

Domaća zadaća je gotovo završena i osmogodišnji Peru već cupka na stolici. Kao i većina vršnjaka, Peru se manje zanima za probleme iz matematike raštrkane po radnom stolu, a više za sport i njegove misli već polako lutaju treningu koji ga čeka navečer. No za razliku od dječaka svoje dobi širom Europe, on se neće [...]
