Land of Camargue

Time for meditation, time for calculation

In March we started our trip to Scandinavia. Just before we left Slovenia, an arctic front came, so we were practically escaping from -15 degrees.
(It is quite challenging to start packing a mobile house when freezing cold...)

We took an extra few weeks to stop in Martigue, France for to up great our mobile house and test it before the reall snow adventure to Tromso, Norway begins.

We found what we were looking for. The land of Camargue.  Space and no unnecessary frequencies, except the universal sound of the nature. Camargue is inhabited by a rich diversity of wildlife, the Cheval Camarguais (white horse smaller than than the average horse), more than 50.000 flamingos and the Taureaux Camarguais (breed of black bull). The area Is known for the guardians. European cowboys.

When you adjust to the surroundings and are ready for your macro lens, you are ready to accept and see the micro worlds around you.

Waking up with flamingos and going to bed while admiring the strength of life and wilderness in this beautiful camargue horses, felt like a breath of fresh air before our future off road adventures.

Flamingos were getting closer every day. We have adapted to the quietness of the surrounding.

Camargue with its beauty truly was a bless for our souls. Still is and even more than before.

The Camargue is known for its windy climate. (300 days per year windy) Except one stormy night, luck was on our side. We caught a perfect days for a landscape photography. I couldn't take long exposures because of the present breeze, but there was always something happening. Either on the earth, either on the sky.

We loved to travel with our backpacks, but the constant pain of our backs was "killing us". Especially after eight months of travel through SouthEast Asia.  (2011- 2012)

All the heavyweight photo equipment, hostels, packing, unreliability of a public transport... got on our way for a while.

We have reconsidered the options of a lighter travel. It took us three years for our mobile house to be accomplished and ready for our first adventure.

How it feels to live in a mobile house for one year around the world?

When everything goes well, no complications on the border, water tanks full, gas tanks full, solar panels working, baterry full and photo equipment fully charged life on road gives you a priceless experience. It makes you wonder.

It opens a new possibilities, shakes up your perspectives. Your eye lense suddenly widens up from 50 mm to 24mm and sharpens to macro.

It feels like all world is yours, sunsets, sunrise, nights, mornings, everything that touches your moment at that time at that place where you parked your house that day.

dental center Čelesnik

just a smile away...

Even in a modern age I still think a simple word like dentist puts people in to uncomfortable mode and is often perceived as painful and unpleasant. It is that pre-sound from the past.

I needed to visit a dentist because of my tooth accident happened in Nepal. As I knew I will depart towards my home country Slovenia in a few days, I did not want to push my luck and deal with my tooth issues in Kathmandu. I also knew I will be pretty much under the influence of a jet lag, as it seamed like a perfect timing.

It is so, I do not see my very dear old friend Barby as often as I should and would like to. We have quite a history there with with my pal, since the high school days.

Unfortunately traveling takes a whole person, body and soul. I would expose that as one of the major downsides or disadvantages of being a traveler.  Apparently there are some tuff decisions and sacrifices to be made if you want to expand your knowledge about the world while on the road. According to this issue there is also a positive site to it. When you do finally meet, you always spend your time together as if it would be the last one.

This time I took an opportunity to combine bought. To see Barby in her working environment dental laboratory, where she spends quite a lot of her precious time as well as fixing my tooth problem while hanging out with her.

I made an appointment in a dental center, dental center Čelesnik.

Of course I took my camera gear. Since her place is only a few minutes away from lake Bled, it was a perfect opportunity to finally take a walk around with my buddy Canon, as I would while on travels.

When I arrived to the dental office, I did't wait long... still, I had just enough time to scan the place and feel the story. It felt natural. It felt homy and not at all at the dentist place. All the wooden craft, carefully designed details definitely got my attention.

What surprised me the most, besides the high tech equipment was the vivid garden around the place. It is not ordinary for a dental office to have their own garden, especialy not in the city.

Later on I met the chief director 'Garfield the cat' who manages this place. He looked kinda silly, a bit self-centered and yet from my observations, he knew exactly how to operate with his garden and his customers. Aldo he can look quite bossy, he made me feel welcomed at his homegrown. He took me around and showed me the garden.

This was a complitely deferent experience for me, lying on a dental chair observing the natural scenery, hearing the birds, while the professionals were dealing with my tooth problem.

So much has changed since I left dentistry, seven years ago. All the advanced equipment, carefully chosen team with a positive attitude along their profesion made me feel I am in a trustworth place.

Unfortunately I did not have an opportunity to meet all the team at the dental center Čelesnik. There is also a real dr. Rok Čelesnik, the son of the founder dr. Emil Čelesnik and now the father of the concept of this center. I have heard he has many stories to share. About the dental work and the place its self. But lets leave this chapter for the next time. I think the visit might bring even more picturestic and amusing stories on my path.

I would definitely recommend to visit their place. So, dental center Čelesnik it is.
