Coping with Digital Toxicity
Digital Toxicity has been getting to me for sometime now. So, I have disengaged from Facebook and disabled 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 other purely cruel 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 the Podcast and if you did, then please share, like and of course Subscribe.

Crazy Weather Change in Bosnia and Herzegovina
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 time of year, we get dumps of snow, dig out the drive maybe twice a day, enjoy the woodburner and dream of 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 the Podcast and if you did, then please share, like and of course Subscribe.

Swimming in the Sea (or elsewhere to be honest) | The Balkan Adventures Podcast
On this podcast, I talk about being one of the minority. That minority that just don't get off on bronzing their body on the beach and spending almost all day swimming or messing about in the sea.
