Red Bugs and Palm Trees in Montenegro | The Balkan Adventures Podcast

During our last holiday break in Montenegro, Tamara spotted a rather pretty looking, red bug flying around, which landed on my multi-coloured T shirt. After talking about this rather fetching bug, we saw a young lady opening what looked like a big trap, which indeed she was It was full of these red insects. We found out she wears researching these insects. On asking why they were being trapped, we quickly learned about how, and why, the many beautiful palm trees in Montenegro were dying, and who was responsible. It's the red Palm Weevil or Surlaš.

Red Bugs and Palm Trees in Montenegro | The Balkan Adventures Podcast

Working Away | The Balkan Adventures Podcast

This past Friday, I recorded a short interview, with Elizabeth O’Neill, an Australian lady, who with her husband Gerard, are currently visiting the Western Balkans. She told me that they “Work Away”. They get themselves to their chosen destination country, and then work for a maximum of 20 hours a week in return for accommodation and food. I was intrigued as to how they found where work was offered, and what they might be required to do. After all Elizabeth and her husband were “early retirees”, (her words), so heavy manual labouring might be a bit too much? They use a website, Work Away, where they can find opportunities that might suit them, and where their questions are answered. From listening to Elizabeth, it made me think that this form of travelling fitted under the banner of “Slow Tourism”, as they were immersing themselves into the culture and environment wherever they stayed, experiencing things they would otherwise not have the opportunity to.

A Mexican Returns to Bosnia and Herzegovina | The Balkan Adventures Podcast

Hello and welcome to this edition of the Podcast. In this episode, I catch up with Jose Angelo Gallegos a YouTuber and Filmmaker from California. Last year I interviewed Jose, who hadarrived in Banja Luka, having previously produced and published "Bitter Sweet Bosnia", his first film about BiH on YouTube. We talked about filmmaking, social media, the region, BIH AND much more. Especially what attracted a Mexican American to come to this part of the world. I posted the interview here on my podcast, which you can hear HERE. So it was a real treat,to find out that Jose (whose latest project is a film about Albania), was coming back to Banja Luka. We met again, and spend a fast and furious 20 hour "Creativity Camp" in the village. Discussing many Tech Tips and Tricks, and for me, the chance to fly a Pro Drone for the first time. Some Rakija was consumed We took time to sit down and share the story with you. The full interview will be posted on my YouTubeandpodcast channels, but here's a...

Newsletter 07 April 2019 | The Balkans Adventures Podcast

Hello and welcome to this "first weekend in April", edition of my ”An Englishman in the Balkans”, bi-weekly newsletter. SHOUT OUTS to Ian Temple, Simon King and Hans Peter Buch! As I have really pulled back using social media (I am almost only using Instagram now and I don't class YouTube as a social media platform anyway), I am starting to feel that having this newsletter, is more personal and you guys have already started to respond by email. The newsletter certainly feels less "broadcast" than using Social Media, thats for sure. Now whats been what's happening with me, here in the Western Balkans? Well this week I am going to try and do something different and I would really appreciate your thoughts and feed back. In the past I have written my update and added supporting links to either videos or pages that help to "colour" my updates. This week I am going to update in both Vlog and Podcast Formats. Let's see how it goes? So, if you would like to engage (and we really hope you ...

Toxicity | The Balkan Adventures Podcast

Digital Toxicity has been getting to me for sometime now. So, I have disengaged from Facebook anddisabled comments on my YouTube channel. I feel better already to be honest. The internet is sadly becoming more and more toxic/negative, and when it comes to Bosnia and Herzegovina, the level of extreme racist, ethnic, nationalistic and otherpurelycruel comments has been really upsetting. So, if you would like to engage (and we really hope you will/do) then please take the time to use our email address :) Hope you enjoy thePodcast and if you did, then please share, like and of course Subscribe.

Crazy Weather Change | The Balkan Adventures Podcast

I keep saying that life here in the Balkans is (for me at least), far from boring. Even everyday experiences. Take the weather for example. As usual at this timeof year, we get dumps of snow, dig out the drive maybe twice a day, enjoy the woodburner and dreamof when the wonderful summer days will arrive. A typical February. Things are changing. We have gone from hovering around 0 to -2 Celsius to +19. Overnight. Hope you enjoy thePodcast and if you did, then please share, like and of course Subscribe.
