Travelogue

   Posted by: CursedPoet   in

One of my favourite things to do in this world is travelling, and I usually cannot go without one every month or two. So far, I’ve been to several European countries and since this continent is still very fascinating for me, I guess I will still be discovering it in the month and years to come – before moving to other ‘uncharted’ territories.

Kurja Polt Goosebumps in Ljubljana – Kurja Polt Genre Film Festival, April 2016

As with all the places that connect me with special people and H.R. Giger, I think I left a piece of my heart in Ljubljana.

H.R. Giger Museum and Bar, Gruyères, Switzerland

The original movie, helmed by Ridley Scott, that successfully combined horror and science fiction… (more)
