Back from my vacation

It has been three weeks! Three weeks!!!!
You might ask yourself what I am talking about, well, it is quite simple. I have been on a three weeks vacation. Where? Croatia. Anita is from Zadar and her parents have a house down there, so nothing easier then entering the car, taking the highway for 1.350km and there you go!
Funny thing is that I've had a little discussion with the 4Kings WC3 guys at Games Convention, before they got lost totally that night. I was chatting with Zeus, who is Croatian as you will know and he told me that his mates would always make fun of him for that. The food, the poor country and so on and so on. Well, Zeus asked me to tell them how Croatia really is and so I did. We talked about food and stuff and Grubby tried to make a joke. Well, we ended up dissing him a bit due to all the good food that comes from the Netherlands and their food "culture". Anyway, not the point here, though it was a fun night!
Croatia has a rich culture and the country is growing really fast. Last time I have been there is two years ago and a lot has changed since then. I mean, the infrastructure is growing fast and you can see all those shops popping up here and there.
But what really caught me was the TV. Besides the original programme, HRT1, HRT2 and RTL have bough almost all good American TV shows and of course they are subtitled only, which is good, cause this way you can see them in english.
In the future, this will be a major advantage for the growing youth there, as they will all be able to communicate in English pretty good.
And one more thing. Croatia, small as it might be has always produced very good sports men/women. Zeus is just the first one to prove that this country might pick up eSports fast as well. We will see.
Anyway, the vacation was great and atm I am sitting here at my desk, checking my schedule for the rest of the year and it will be packed with a lot of tournaments I will be going to with the players. London will be the starting point, followed by Monza. WSVG Finals and of course the one I am looking forward to the most, CPL winter!
Lot's of great eSport is ahead of us and I can't wait to see the guys in action again. Hopefully Kode5 will run good for them...
