When it comes to home improvements, I firmly believe that there are certain small and relatively easy projects every man should be able to undertake and complete successfully. Anchoring a bookcase or a display cabinet to a wall, filling unsightly holes and cracks, fixing loose or wobbly tiles, unclogging a drain, replacing shower heads, toilet seats, and doorknobs, painting, and sealing pavement cracks are some of the things you should know how to do (not to prove your manliness, but to save money). However, electrical work is not one of them.
Dental implants are commonly recommended for patients who have lost some of their teeth due to periodontal disease or injury. Although other options are available in the dental industry to replace teeth, such as bridges and dentures, dental implants offer the most natural feeling for patients as they are inserted into the jawbone and look and act like real teeth.
Due to these benefits, dental implants have become so popular that today there is a great number of qualified Australian dentists that offer their patients different types of dental implants using state-of-the-art technology. Different types of dental implants offer specific benefits and are suitable for treating different conditions. Read More
There are certain things a household can’t do without, and by this I’m not just referring to furniture, but the essential tools as well. An Australian household in particular has the need of water pumps, simply because we’ve already had our share of water shortages due to droughts and already know how to prepare for such alarming situations, something California has asked our help for. We’re no strangers to flooding either, considering the might of Cyclone Debbie that swept our east coast, and pumps are the bare necessity to be able to combat both emergency situations.
It was 1993 and banks refused to grant a loan to the twin brothers Rainer and Harald Opolka because they did not have any estate to offer as collateral. What banks actually dismissed was their prototype invention (Ledlenser V8 flashlight) telling them it wasn’t good enough and it was never going to sell. What a huge mistake they made. Read More
“If we were meant to stay in one place, we’d have roots instead of feet” – Rachel Wolchin
There are so many places to go, yet so little time. Over the years, being witnesses of the technological advancements as well as being directly affected by them, we’ve learned how to be constantly pressed for time and used to feeling frazzled. Then if we’re lucky, after all the days of being workaholics we get the chance to enjoy some days off, taking to the road and visiting new places. While all this is going on, unless we pay attention, this sort of speeded lifestyle can start taking its toll on our health, and constantly being on the run then sitting it out at work and at home can seriously affect the state of our feet.
Though I really hate the thought of it, the days are getting shorter and the temperatures lower. But as winter is coming, my mind is not willing to let go of the sun filled days. So here I am, searching for ways to bring back summer. While I cannot actually turn the switch on seasons as I please, what I can certainly do is jump on a plane and fly off to Europe where summer is just about to begin. Beach, sun, cocktails and some historic places to visit. Yay!
But since my winter vacation is limited and there are countless places to visit in Europe, I decided to completely devote myself to one place that captures the best elements of Europe – the refreshing coasts, mouthwatering food and captivating history. Let me introduce to you my ultimate dream destination – Croatia.
Even though on the other side of the planet, Croatia vacation packages come at a much lower cost than similar European destinations. Visiting Croatia is an affordable way of treating yourself to a little slice of European heaven. Saving up on travel costs means you’ll get extra money to spend on visiting museums, savouring the local cuisine and cruising the pristine coast.
The mandatory stop on every Croatian itinerary is the old town of Dubrovnik. Justifying its nickname as “The Pearl of the Adriatic”, Dubrovnik confidently overlooks the sea surrounded by the thick medieval fortresses and 800-year-old walls. The rich heritage protected by UNESCO is precisely the one reason it holds such a soft spot for history and architecture lovers from around the world.
Some of the must visit sites in Dubrovnik include: Lovrinjac – an impregnable fortress with magical panoramic view overlooking both the town and the sea; the Franciscan Monastery home to the third oldest pharmacy in the world; the Rector’s Palace – an outstanding blend of Baroque and Renaissance. Best known for the breathtaking scenes in Game of Thrones, this town currently undergoes a huge spike in tourist visits. Be sure to book one of the many Croatia vacation packages that include Dubrovnik while all these popular spots are still there.
Further up the coast lies another historical gem – the town of Split. It boasts a 38 500m² complex of Roman remnants including the Palace of Diocletian, the Cathedral of St. Dominus and the Temple of Jupiter. However, Split and the nearby town of Trogir are also well-known for their friendly folks and lively night clubs where a beer costs under three dollars. And if you go deeper in Croatia’s mainland, you will come across the many national parks with luscious vegetation unlike you’ve ever seen before.
Imagine spending a week eating juicy Mediterranean food, exploring centuries’ old history and sipping sweet wine in quantities that would make even Cercei Lannister jealous. History, fun and beautiful nature – that’s what a vacation in Croatia is all about.
You think your success is defined by the amount of hours you put in at work? All your days start early and end late. You begin your day with checking your email and end it by sending one from bed right before you set the alarm clock. You work overtime just because you’re left with one more task to finish and well, because it conveys an impression of a rather hard-working person. Then you go home and start a brainstorming session at 9:00 PM for the tasks you have the following day. Sleep? What’s that? Read More
