THE BOOK OF FATHERS BY MIKLOS VANOS (BOOK REVIEW)

Image
 In this post, I'll review a historical novel titled The Book of Fathers by Hungarian author Miklos Vanos.   I'm glad I own a copy of this book, for it is worth a reread.  I have read this book many years ago, but I haven't published a review of it on my blog yet. Considering that I still remember this novel fondly, I think a book review is due.  I remember my first reading experience of this book quite clearly. For some reason I was sure that I was going to like this novel, even before I know what it was about. The cover attracted me as much as the title. When I've read the opening lines I was positive that I'd enjoy this one. I was right. The book dragged me in and took me for quite a ride. In fact, I absolutely loved  The Book of Fathers .  A FASCINATING PREMISE IN A WELL ROUNDED FAMILY EPIC This is a well rounded epic story, spending over centuries, following lives of one Hungarian family. Perhaps the most fascinating premise is the one about the ability to loo

VISIT ISLAND KRK WITH MODAODARADOSTI BLOG!

 The time has finally arrived for you to find out where I'm living and working at the moment. I'm no longer in Umag, but I'm still in Istria region. I'm currently located on island Krk, Croatia. What a beautiful island it is! Every day I wake up surrounded by beautiful views.  What can one say about the beauty of Kvarner Gulf? Sometimes the words fail us. My history with Kvarner goes way back.  I actually lived in Rijeka for a  period in my life. That was back when I was younger and worked as a flight attendant. My airline's offices were based there, so I often visited Rijeka  even when I moved back home. This was all a long time ago, but being in Istria again makes me recall it. Funny how life sometimes gives you opportunity to return and revisit a place special to you. What can I say about island Krk? It's an absolutely beautiful island to start with. I hope I'll have the time to explore it in detail soon. So long I have been to busy to do that, but maybe

UMAG - THE WESTERNMOST TOWN IN CROATIA (PART 2)

Image
 My last post about the westernmost Croatian town Umag was short and sweet. Likewise, my second post about Umag will be on the short side. In my last post, I didn't write the real reason why I was in Umag. You see, I wasn't really visiting it as a tourist. I actually relocated to Umag town back in May for work reasons. At the moment I'm working full time in the tourism sector so with the high seasons and everything I'm quite busy. The working days in the summer (during the high season) are usually quite long. They start early in the morning and end up late at night (with breaks) so I haven't had much time for blogging and posting. I promise to make it up to you in the future.  At the start of this month, I relocated again (for work). My company has sent me to a new location in Croatia. Before I reveal where I am at the moment, I'll like to share with you another post about Umag city. Moreover, I will leave link to more posts about Croatia that you might find us
