Camden Town, London

Camden Town or just Camden, is an inner city district of London. Since the 1970’s Camden has become known for its street markets and while the traditional food market has been present until 2013, you will know find only touristy stalls and shops – from souvenirs and snacks to music CDs and other more or less usual (and unusual stuff). Crowded by tourists and street performers, it is certainly an interesting place to visit, for an hour or more :)

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Is located at the famous Piccadilly Circus, so finding it should not be too hard.

Robert L. Ripley (1890–1949) was a cartoonist, explorer, reporter, adventurer, and collector, who travelled to 201 countries in 35 years seeking the odd, the unusual, and the unexplained. In those years, he created an incredible collection of weird and weirder and a part of it, you can still see today in Ripley’s Museums all around the world. Here is just a teaser of what you can see in London’s collection.

Tolmin Gorges

Tolmin gorges are one of those hidden and often overlooked pearls of our little country. Well they are not grand like Grand Canyon for example, but it’s the little things that more often than not grow to your heart.

You can get to these gorges by foot from Tolmin following the Tolminka river or alternatively drive there by car.

While the published route is marked in counter clockwise direction, clockwise one is much easier to walk. A view from the road down into the emerald abyss.

We might be a small country with even less people, but if we are good at making something, it’s got to be world class athletes. Anže Kopitar is undoubtedly the greatest athlete coming from our little nation. Started to play ice hockey when he was of little age, he advanced quickly, moved to Sweden as a teenager and soon got drafted in NHL by LA Kings team. He immediately proved his worth and has since become one of the best NHL players with high praises from different ice hockey experts, Wayne Gretzky being one of them.

Anže’s view of the ice field is unlike any others and he finished this years play-offs as top scoring player with 26 points in 26 games. His statistic are at the bottom of this page.

Or how the Metaldays site looks in early spring when not occupied by thousands of metalheads from all over the world.

Since the above mentioned heavy metal festival is taking place in one of the most beautiful places in our country, dare I say Europe or World, and since I took my wife for a little trip, which took us to Tolmin, where the festival (previously known as Metalcamp) is taking place for more than a decade, it was quite interesting to visit the place where we have enjoyed our summer days so many times in the past.

Here’s how the site looks at the moment:
