Why do people need all of these photos? I take, at most, 3 or 4 photos when I’m on a trip. I don’t need digital evidence that I saw something beautiful – just a momento of me and my friends.

It is just validation and attention seeking for social media. Or incapability of enjoying the present. Existential emptiness.

Is it not possible to enjoy a place fully and properly, and then also take photos, without seeking validation or being a social media whore? Agreed that far too many people do it for those reasons, but saying that all cases point to that is a sweeping generalisation. People do different things.

People don’t vacation for the experience, they vacation for the social validation.

What photos? Roosh seems to have taken videos, which is actually a clever way to remember the atmosphere of a (new) place, often making for a more valuable memory than a static photograph.

Dubrovnik was left untouched by the Ottomans as at the time it was under the sovereignty of Venice. Later on it ruled itself as a free city state. It makes you wonder why it was granted the special status, huh?

Otherwise, if it wasn’t for the Muslims, all of Eastern Europe was going to look like that. So let this serve as a warning to the West which is being slowly occupied by Muslims with the help from their (pseudo)Semitic cousins.

Really enjoy mini-reviews such as this. Traveling during the off-season is an absolute must. It makes the difference between feeling like a visit to Disney World and stepping back into a time machine.

The best part is, you can travel so much cheaper during the off season! Flights from US to Europe for <$500 R/T are common, and hotel prices are lower as well.

Anyway, glad to see you relaxing in a beautiful resort; you deserve some peace and quiet and happiness, after a tumultuous year my friend!

Actually the history of Dubrovnik or as it once was called, the Republic of Ragusa, is very interesting. It was a very small city state surrounded by big powers like venice, hungary or the ottoman empire. But nevertheless they managed to stay independent for centuries thanks to their wealth and their brilliant diplomacy which they masterfully used to play the big powers off each other. Very fascinating how they used game to stay rich and independent. Everyone who is interested in history shoud read about the former republic of ragusa!!

I am reading a book written by Derren Brown, “Happy”. Anybody interested in philosophy should read this absolutely top notch book. PS. Brown is gay, but I could not care less. The guy is really bright.

Croatia is an amazing place, hope you found the time for an excursion to Plitvice Lakes National Park while you were there. It’s special:

(but also tourist-y at times).

Every big vacation destination has its drawbacks for being too popular. On the same token, if you ever go to San Francisco, avoid Fisherman’s Wharf and the Embarcadero tourist zone at all costs. It’ll make you miserable.
