Surface – The Floating Experience

There is a place where all your senses (sight, hearing, touch) are faded down and where you are left with your body floating and a feeling of blissful relaxation. This place is reachable for all and it is called a sensory depravation tank or if you want a friendlier name: a floatation tank. I first heard about it because of Joe Rogan and his YouTube program, in which he talked about his floating experience. Later on, I always wanted to try it out for various health and personal reasons including my curiosity for experiencing something new, and what seemed — read more

Greece atypical

Greece is one of the countries that I had a chance to visit during this summer's road trip in our LR Defender. Driving through the Peloponnese over the time of 3 weeks allowed me to discover Greece in an atypical way. Being able to drive through the top tourist destinations on the continental Greece and also see the less-popular spots is truly great as it gives you a full range of experiences and views on the country. Greece is an extremely popular holiday destination and so I am sure many of you know it from their own travels or — read more

The Famous Houses of San Francisco

San Francisco is a unique city, where many things have happened and many well-known people have lived or at least have spent some part of their lives. When I was scrolling the hilly streets of San Fran last year, I came across an article in the local newspaper on the subject of real estate issues in the area and what mentions are currently on sale in the Bay Area. One of them was the famous house where Janis Joplin's flat was located back in the 1960's. I started to dig in and found more famous houses — read more
