Man does not simply exist

but always decides what his existence will be, what he will become in the next moment. — Viktor Frankl

Learn to detach

Don’t cling to things, because everything is impermanent . . . But detachment doesn’t mean you don’t let the experience penetrate you. On the contrary, you let it penetrate fully. — Mitch Albom

From November to July … it’s so hot here. These are the latest photos from Ljubljana. And just to cheer me on… Lake Garda D-5 and Paris D-110 😀

The tragedy in the lives of most of us

… is that we go through life walking down a high-walled lane with people of our own kind, the same economic situation, the same national background and education and religious outlook. And beyond those walls, all humanity lies, unknown and unseen, and untouched by our restricted and impoverished lives. — Florence Luscomb

Two days ago it was the third anniversary of my registration at WordPress. And during this time, I gained 1,501 followers.

Dilemma

I sit in front of my computer and watch photos … what should I post this time? Ljubljana? Vienna? Paris? Warsaw?
I have a lot of problems with these posts. I post photos on Instagram, where I have two accounts; Facebook also has two accounts, WordPress … and sometimes I’m lost. I do not know where I posted something … stupid me.
Do you also have such problems?

And now also a brand new WordPress editor… I’m lost.

LOVE

I noticed this sign in the window… but I already knew that. Paris is love or I’m in love with Paris.

You know, I think that book that I wrote, in a way, was like building something. So that I wouldn’t forget the… details of the time that we spent together. You know, like just a reminder that… that once we really did meet! You know, that this was real! That this happened! – Before Sunset Quotes

And something similar is with my photos, I would not like to forget … I don’t know how to write books or blog, but I can take photos at least I think so.

You know what’s the worst thing about somebody breaking up with you? It’s when you remember how little you thought about the people you broke up with and you realize that is how little they’re thinking of you. You know, you’d like to think you’re both in all this pain but they’re just like “Hey, I’m glad you’re gone”. – Before Sunrise quote

 

And this is all about travel this year, at least I think … now I am preparing for the next year.

Vienna

… or Wien… So I’m back and I’m editing my thoughts and feelings. I walked almost 100 kilometers in six days, which is not bad and I made around 800 photos with camera and phone.

What to say about Vienna? Like Ljubljana, of course much much bigger, it is very crowded on tourist attractions, but the next street is almost empty. And I like this empty Viennese streets early in the morning. Of course, one of the reasons for seeing Vienna was the film Before Sunrise. Unfortunately, this time I was unable to get to Friedhof der Namenlosen, because the cemetery is quite out of town. However, I managed to see some other locations and I especially liked the Kleines Café coffee shop on Franziskanerplatz and only 5 minutes from my apartment. So I could spend some time at Kleines Café … and very important coffee was good. I had an apartment on the Sonnenfelsgasse street and I could not have a better location.

I saw a lot, ate wiener schnitzel, sacher cake and wiener apfelstrudel, met with friends but I missed something … I did not feel the energy of Vienna. Maybe next time I will…

These first photos are taken with the phone.

Is not everything we do in life a way to be loved a little more? – Before Sunrise quote
