Wanderlust Stories Dubrovnik 
_
So yesterday ( Monday) myself and Victoria immersed ourselves in a full day of Dubrovnik Game of Thrones starting with a really good GOT tour of the old town ending in an Irish pub (doesn't matter where you go there is always one.... I reckon when the first people arrive on Mars there will be a Paddy OMurpheys already there) where we watched the big white walker battle scene
_
Now I don't do tours and tourist things but for Viccys sake this time I did. This girl was super good and I actually enjoyed it

Personal Development Stories | Sonic Gong Baths

I ventured to Blackpool Library at the weekend to work on my ongoing personal development.....yeah the library for personal development....without opening a book.
-
Our library is really becoming not just a place to develop your mind and imagination, but to also develop your body and soul.
-
So yes as I said, to the library I went. The lovely @zo_eeeee as part of her yoga sessions (I didn't do yoga) had brought along GoGongs. Man did they have some Gongs. Big killer sonic attack gongs
-
If you have never done a gong bath then I highly recommend it, meditating while being washed over by sonic sounds and vibrations. It was like being immersed in the sonic sounds of Hawkwind mixed with Gong and the Here & Now band.
-
It also had a strange side effect it took away the pain I suffer in my knee which still hasn't returned 4 days later.

Neon Porn
Wanderlust Stories | Bern, Switzerland
___
I happen to quite like signs. My favorite ones are either old vintage ones or Neon. This was taken in the main Bern Christmas Market recently, a treasure trove of Christmas smells, twinkling lights and neon signs. Hot food and hot wine.

Wanderlust Stories
___
While wandering through Switzerland I was thrown by both how well organised and how well behaved the swiss appear to be. I found zero CCTV cameras hardly saw any police and not one single bicycle in the whole country seems to ever be chained up.
___
This is the most disruptive scene I came across. BicycleGeddon, was it the wind or some merry prankster. My vote is the wind.

Two Lovely Souls by a lovely waterfall. 
Sometimes just being in nature, in trees, by water with warm hats and good conversations is all our soul needs

A unexpected little bit of Alpine horn blowing not what I expected to stumble upon on a Tuesday night by a river in Basel.

Sounds pretty awesome though, random but awesome

Tiny Story from Basel | Children of the None-Nanny State Culture

It is quite strange coming from England to a culture that encourages it children to learn and explore with risk. In the UK we have a very Nanny State Culture we suffocate our children's natural urge to explore and grow, we shelter them from any kind of risk through health and safety legislation and unnecessary Laws.

In Basel I am pleasantly shocked to see children not teenagers, but young children using power tools to engrave glass, twiddle wood on lathes, to help a blacksmith hammer out Molten hot metals. Supervised yes, but wrapped in suffocating cotton wool, no.

The problem with our culture (UK) is our government interferes to much in our social and family culture, we have allowed it to suffocate our natural curiosity, to legislate the family, our art, our thinking, our wellbeing and our grieving. The state legislates our communities, our parenting and as such we have given away our individual and community sovereignty
We have a lot to learn from Europe about the Family and Community

A rooftop view over Bern, Switzerland. A very beautiful place to visit with the greenest fairy tail river I have seen outside of Bath, England. I am quite in love with the kooky little houses and how everything's looks a bit like an old Tinderbox Children's book painting.

I'm still unable to get my head around how  there are no police around or cameras and how safe this place is. On a downside though everything and everyone seems to go to bed real early and there's not much of a city style nightlife.... Although today I found a hill full of Pagan fertility statues and I guess with all the law abiding and early nights I bet there's some weird sex orgy stuff going on behind closed doors As Jung said.. Every one and every culture has a dark and equal shadow side...

A slightly Pagan looking bar at the Bern Christmas market but then again wasn't some of the Christmas rituals stolen from the Pagans anyway?. Although you do need a mortgage to afford to eat in Bern its main Christmas market is super twinkly and pretty. 
Food costs approximately two to three times more than the same meal from the same shop in the UK. Transport is also a lot more expensive. Cigarettes and Knives are not.

There is a real absence of crime her you never see bicycles locked up no CCTV and hardly any police everyone is well behaved......to well behaved..... ___

I visited Bern Cathedral in Switzerland today. Its a beautiful cathedral. It is also strangely, a place were you are forbidden to take photographs which is hard to understand because if I had a place this beautiful I would be greatful to those who showed it to the world. Inevitably a game was in hand were the Bishop knew myself and @vicx107 were up to no good but he just couldn't quite catch us it was a bit like the Pink Pantha show. Some rules just need to be disrupted.

If you ever in Bern it is well worth a visit and a game of "Catch me if You can Bishop"
