Hotel review: Jolly Beach Resort & Spa (Bolans, Antigua)

We chose Jolly Beach Resort & Spa for our first visit to the beautiful Antigua island. We wanted an all-inclusive option for a hassle free vacation, but we knew we would be traveling around a lot, so we didn’t want to pay a fortune for it. Despite very mixed reviews on Tripadvisor, Jolly Beach Resort & Spa with officially 3 stars turned out to be a very good compromise for what we needed. Location The resort lies on Jolly Beach, which is indeed one of the most beautiful beaches of Antigua. The transport from the Airport takes around 20 minutes by car (let me point out that the roads in Antigua are a big headache, especially during the night when […]

Slovenes abroad: Rajko, New York (USA)

Rajko moved to USA in September 1995, first to Upton, a small town in Massachusetts, about 30 minutes west of Boston. 6 years later he moved to Miami for a year and a half and then to New York, where he has been living since 2002.

Slovenci v svetu: Rajko, New York (ZDA)

Rajko živi v ZDA že od leta 1995. Najprej ga je pot vodila v Upton, manjše mestece v državi Massachusetts, ki leži 30 minut zahodno od Bostona. Po 6 letih se je preselil v Miami, kjer je živel leto in pol, leta 2002 pa se je ustalil na Long Islandu, približno 100 km iz mesta New York, kjer ima službo. Verjetno ne rabim posebej poudarjati, da mi gre strašansko na živce. V pozitivnem smislu, seveda 🙂 Ejga, Rajko, kako kaj “moj” New York? New York je fantastičen. Resnično je najboljše mesto na svetu (zavist premaknem še v višjo prestavo, op. a.) Utrip Manhattna je vedno živahen in nabit s pozitivno energijo, kamorkoli se ozreš. Po eni strani se v njem […]
