Rovinj

sebalj health, vacation, wellbeing

I went out of my comfort zone a lot of times this year. Just recently, I went to Rovinj, alone. Rovinj is a town on the Adriatic coast, some 250 km (155 miles) from Zagreb. I went to visit an old friend of mine. I haven’t seen him in about 10 years, mostly because my condition didn’t allow me to …

Summer holidays

sebalj health, vacation, wellbeing

I returned from a great holiday. First I spent ten days in Rtina with my family and it was great. I saw great progress since the last time I was there a couple of years ago. That last time I only managed to walk from the beach to the house once. This time around, we left the car at the …

Altitude training

sebalj vacation, wellbeing, workout

I have been on a four weeks vacation at the summer house with my family. Great vacation, and although it was awfully hot, I managed to see my progress. Since I’ve been in exercise mode the last couple of years, I had to continue with it under that hot weather. I was a little shaky, but on the upside, the …

Easter break

We spent the kids’ Easter break  from school at house at the countryside. The kids were enjoying themselves so much: jumping on the trampoline, catching butterflies, screaming as loud as they could at the forest which turned into a contest who has the loudest voice, especially because they echo in the forest. One of the neighbours stopped by with some …

Another work of art

sebalj vacation, workout

Half way there. I’m on my 15th day of doing pushups., and everything is going according to schedule. During this time I only took a painkiller once, to relax my muscles. I think that streching with Tibetans also helped me through this challenge. On another note, there was a shooting arund the kids’ school, so we went to the countryside …

Long pebble beach

So this weekend I finally went down to Pag to do my 2 minute hanging challenge, but the bar was no longer there, being the end of the season and all. You will always be in the right place at the right time, says Aaron in one of his meditations. It is not the right time, I will wait, but …

Something old, something new…

sebalj vacation, wellbeing

I am back home from the remarkable three weeks at the weekend house, and then a Croatian island – http://www.pasman.hr/en . It was my first time at the island of Pasman, and it was amazing. We were situated on Ždrelac, which is in a hilly part with lots of green trees and bushes, but not very close to the beach. …

Melting…

sebalj vacation, wellbeing

After the World Cup the weather got hot, very hot. I totally forgot what it’s like when MS catches you, and all that fatigue… The cold showers helped me, but only for short periods of time. It is good when I can stay at home during the hot weather, but… I am a stay-at-home Dad again, with school being out, …

Deserved holidays

sebalj vacation, wellbeing, workout

I haven`t been writing for a long time. I went with my family on holiday for 3 weeks. We moved into a new apartment, this new place is about 60m2, almost the same as the old one, only completely renovated and new… funny how quickly can one get used to new stuff. But there is a challenge for me there: …

Rtina

sebalj vacation

Jesus, it caught me again, that fatigue. Even the healthy people are complaining. I already forgot that feeling, that tiredness, those of you who have MS will know what I am talking about. Although, it is happening mostly during the evenings, when all the heat goes inside the house. During the day, I am in the sea all the time. …
