Sarah Silverman’s midword and a few other things

I’ve discovered Sarah Silverman reading her autobiographical book “The Bedwetter: Stories of Courage, Redemption, and Pee” (2010) and while I grew curious about her stand-ups (she’s a comedian) it seems I don’t necessary like all of her jokes.

However, I came across a few things in her book that I like and I want to share them:

Shopping Tourism in Milan

One of favorite things I like to discover about any city I visit is the architecture. And while Milan stands out with its Duomo and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, I was highly disappointed to not find anything else to leave me breathless.

Bergamo: charming little piece of Italy

I planned visiting Bergamo with no expectations at all. My interest was directly pointed at experiencing Milan, a city that had been for a long time on my “to see” list.

It helped that I was already familiar with the charm of Italy, its picturesque surroundings, mesmerizing architecture, delicious food and dreamy atmosphere. However, it was a pleasant surprise and a delightful start of my summer holidays to be climbing the streets to Bergamo’s Citi Alta, on a (very hot, unfortunately) afternoon last week.

My Love Took Me Down To The River To Silence Me

The animals are sad

I don’t remember how I become so eager to visit Târgu Mures’s Zoo (Romania); must have been an article on the internet a couple of years back.

And then – kind of out of nowhere – this Spring I had the opportunity to visit it. It was the sunniest day of the year so far (sometime in March) and there I was entering the great forest all excited to see the beautiful animals.

So long, excitement! Seeing these animals made me anything but happy.

Spring in Bratislava

It was 16th April and I was visiting Bratislava for the 3rd time. It had been only 3 months ago I said that I’m looking forward for my Spring and Autumn walks in Bratislava, and here I was sticking to my wishes.

It seems like the Slovak capital gets smaller and smaller with every visit. But I kind of got over that with the walk up the hill, where the Bratislava castle (Bratislavský hrad) is. It’s still not a place or an experience to get crazy about, but it’s hard to see a city from above and not be happy with it.

Don’t take my word for it

Look at me to know that it’s true.”
