nice to hear these words. and summer stories always go back me to the coast. when I come to seaside I like to take on robinson crusoe manner, no time, no news, no TV, internet....only me, companionship and beautifull nature...and good wine.
I reccommend island Vis for relaxation of the everyday life...Vis is far away from the coast and exotic, with beautifull lagoons and some kind of spirit. City of Vis is nothing special, but Island is mmmmm...and excursions to Blue cave goes from Vis

You forgot the main thing, that your city brought freedom for Romania in 1989. ;)

Thank you, Karel, Poland is magnificent too, I was in Zakopane having nice time. I would be happy to discuss about history, languages, cultures in a topic here. I am very interested about every country, almost every country has amazing parts. =D> =D>


Yes, Wbk, we brought the revolution. We had in school a partnership with the Slovaks from Michalovce if I remember well, now I feel sorry that I didn't go there. I was sick. I understand your country is something like Transylvania, also a lot of castles, medieval towns, Tatra mountains, also nice chicks, etc.

I suppose both of you may know the origin of this similarity ;-)
In conclusion, I declare that EHF must be destroyed
