Traveling Europe

 

By: Neven Kahlina

The newly weds Sam & Neven decided to make their honeymoon trip traveling through the Europe this year. Before they left, I asked them to keep a diary, so that I can create a blog and post it on my web page. They did an excellent job, and I am happy to post their diary as it was written by them. It’s a bit long but it is worth reading it as they experienced some unbelievable events and visited some incredible sites.

Edmonton cycling

Perfect weekend to close the 2013 season in Edmonton!
Is there a better time to ride a bike than at the end of September? Especially with the weather we’ve been having lately. It’s perhaps the best time to get out and just ride for the pure pleasure of it. That’s exactly what 274 cyclists from Edmonton area did this past weekend at the Roger’s harvest ride in Ardrossan.

The magnificent and legendary passes of the Giro d’Italia
While the the cycling world (PEZ included) gets ready to turn its full gaze to Belgium this weekend, we figured this was as good of a time as any to deflect that attention for just a moment to pretty much one of the only reasons not to chant Belgium right now: the Gavia. Steve Holmes had a particularly memorable ascent of one of the most cherished climbs in cycling. Read on!

The Mystique of Route 66
Since I discovered U.S. Route 66 as a teenage hitchhiker, I’ve travelled it by Greyhound bus and tractor-trailer, by RV and Corvette and, once, by bicycle. Recently, when I wanted to return for another look, I headed straight for my favourite section, in Arizona, stretching from Winslow west to Topock on the California border. The last 250 kilometres of that route constitute one of the longest surviving stretches of the original 3,862-km highway.

Do you wave? Or do you not wave?
This is a column about waving. Specifically: waving hello while riding a bicycle in the city or on the rural roads around the city. Do you wave to say hello to fellow cyclists as we pass each other on our rides?

Life in Croatia

Splitting the bill in a restaurant
The first time I had dinner with a Croatian was in Oklahoma at an Applebee’s. Applebee’s is famous for serving mediocre food with mediocre alcohol. Nothing says meh, like overcooked, rubbery ribblets (a word Applebee’s invented) and cold 3.2 beer.

Life in Croatia

The power of the dark side
In America I was never really one for luxury cars. Not that I could ever afford one, but I never even dreamed of owning one. Never wanted to. Luxury car in the US means a big, bulky SUV that annoys me more than it impresses me.
