Diving from The Old Bridge : All the world’s a stage …

HD

On Saturday, September 24th, 2016, the Red Bull Cliff Diving Event was more spectacular than ever, to the delight of the tens of thousands of spectators.

Cliff Divers from around the world came to the iconic Mostar Bridge set amidst the picturesque backdrop to perform extraordinary feats of dare. Amongst, the charismatic Orlando Duque, the irrepressible Jonathan Paredes, dynamic Gary Hunt and the list goes on.

Journalists with their gigantic cameras swarmed around to the front of the diving scene.

This year, notably was special as the event includes women cliff divers. Also not to be missed, the Red Bull Extreme Sport Sky Divers.

The top achievers for this event are Czech Michal Navratil, Great Britain Gary Hunt, American David Colturi, Australian Rhianan Iffland, Canadian Lysanne Richard and American Cesilie Carlton.

In my eyes, as I am sure is the opinions of all who were at this event, all participants are already winners to have perform these daring performances.

The race of the Red Bull Cliff Diving Competition is far from over. It holds tournaments around the world. We wish the divers best of luck in their next competitions.

The excitement, the bohemian rock style music beat that was put together, the friendly cheering crowd in naturally scintillating environment took our breath away, simply unforgettable …

“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.” William Shakespeare

Being a bookworm, whilst the idea of personally doing extreme sport would be a bit too far fetched, to be part of it as a spectator, one can appreciate and wonder at the beauty and fluidity of these sports.

NB:

Attire for the event: Mediterranean Casual Smart

Light comfortable clothes, waterproof light cosmetics for ladies, a bling or two (nothing ostentatious) and beautiful flip-flops for sinking your feet into the river.

Diving from The Old Bridge : Art of Movement

It’s been a great privilege for us to watch notably famous cliff divers from around the world competing in the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series live.

One famous diver, Orlando Duque, with his beautifully sculpted physics @ age 40 fills one full of optimistic hope, that with workouts, being physically fit is still within one’s grasp. 😉😊

Wishing all Happy Summer Holidays!

Global Education

 

Best education to give any child was a global perspective… , to be comfortable where ever one resides, that is one of our beliefs. 😉

Before coming to Bosnia and Herzegovina, our then 3 year old daughter thought that fruits came from supermarkets…

As Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) is rich in agriculture, it was not long she learned how to differentiate a fig tree from other fruit trees.

We were fortunate to meet craftsmen, who kindly and with great patience show us their crafts. Best time to go would be during late autumn as they would have more time. Summer is usually quite hectic as the craftsmen are usually loaded with a lot of orders. It was a fun and interesting experience for our daughter!

So when in BiH, enjoy! “Think Globally, Act Locally!” 🙂
