Christmas music is currently played in varied content, shape and quality, something very solemnly and something less pretentious. Some of the songs get me into party spirit and others do not. Some artists sing the Christmas in and others sing it straight out. For me, Christmas carols must be rocked up to get into the best Christmas mood. Then there is nothing better than listen to Christmas songs by Stiff Little Fingers, Sex Pistols, Bad Religion, Backstreet Girls, Pogues, Goldblade ft Polystyrene and Slade.
Instead of experiencing Croatia`s dazzling coastline, I admired the beauty of the country`s inland capital Zagreb. The city is full of open air galleries and architectural wonders, which make the city very much alive. Some of them are the Croatian National Theater, Mt. Medvednica, The Church of St. Mark, and the Zagreb Cathedral. Also the streets themselves are all architectural wonders.
Enjoyed cottage life in Taivalkoski, in northern Finland. The cottage is an institution in the country. In the holiday seasons, Finns flock to the countryside for quietness and relaxation at cosy hideouts. At a cottage situated by a lake deep in the forest, I took my time to enjoy the midnight sun, silence, sauna, swimming and fishing - just as the Finns use to do.
What are we going to do? The lions emerged from everywhere, and we where stuck in the middle, literally told. Suddenly we heard a scream from the tent next to us. We didn't see anything, but we feared the worst.

Music takes me back to places I have visited. Collecting music from around the world is my big hobby. After a journey I enjoy listening to music from the places I have been, relax and work through my memories. Each country has its own unique music, and that`s make it more interesting.
One of the most fascinating tribes who live there is the Insect tribe. Hunting crocodiles is their specaility. Joining them on a hunt in Upper Sepik was a suspense thrill. We got the ultimate adrenaline kick, but it almost ended in tradegy.
Some of the recent discoveries around the world that shed new light on ancient history are: the tombs of Jesus and Genghis Khan, new Dead Sea Scrolls fragments found in Judean Desert, lost cities in Cambodia, Egypt, Greek, Britain and Isreal, dinosaur footprint among largest on record discovered in Mongolia's Gobi Desert, Neanderthals built structures in a cave in France, a new Viking settlement in Canada, Altar of miracle-making Viking King discovered in Norway, and a submerged Mesolithic settlement. These and other discoveries this year might be far more than most people could ever dream about.
St. Stephen Cathedral, Vienna, is one of the most iconic buildings in Vienna, and also an UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site in Austria - a real architectural wonder. The most important religious building in Vienna, St. Stephen's Cathedral has borne witness to many important events in Habsburg and Austrian history and has, with its multi-coloured tile roof, become one of the city's most recognizable symbols.
What is hiding beneath Oslo Handelsgymnasium in Oslo? Any big Nazi tresaures? As Nazi Germany began to fall in 1945 its leaders around the world hided the treasures they had looted. Following the World War II the school was inspected by the Norwegian resistance fighters and later the military. They found a large Nazi bunker four metres below the school, which was used as the Nazis headquarter in Norway during the war.
