    Do drink enough!!!

    by Jerelis Written Aug 26, 2014

    For years, we have all been told of the importance of water. The general guideline has been to drink 2 liter of water each day. For a person who is not living an active lifestyle this may be enough, but if you are physically active, you need more water than that. That is especially true if you are hiking in the Alkmaar area due to the fact the average temperature is much higher than other areas and the city lanes with its historical houses and bridges will go up and down.

    Water is essential for everyone, especially if you are hiking. Water helps almost every part of the human body function properly. Our bodies are almost two-thirds water, and proper hydration is essential to keep your body functioning properly during the hike. Some of the things water does in the body are:
    * The brain is 75% water; even moderate dehydration can cause headaches and dizziness;
    * Water regulates body temperature, which is especially important here in the area where the temperatures can be so brutal;
    * Water carries nutrients and oxygen to all cells in the body
    * Blood is 92% water;
    * Water protects and cushions vital organs;
    ·* Water converts food into energy (which is something you will need on a 3 to 4 hour hike…);
    * Muscles are 75% water, and you will use many muscles on a trail as you climb above the desert floor.

    You really need it ...

    Reading a map!

    by Jerelis Written Aug 26, 2014

    Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, the catchy title of the 1992 bestseller by John Gray, succinctly expresses an ancient dilemma. What--if anything--do men's and women's brains do differently?

    The general statement that men and women respond and behave differently under the same circumstances is true; For example, from the crib, male babies tend to be more aggressive and females more passive. As adults, in spatial operations, men have the edge in such skills as negotiating a maze, reading a map, and quickly discriminating between right and left. Men also perform better than women when asked to visualize an object and imagine rotating it. On the other hand, women tend to perform better than men when asked to look at objects of different shapes, sizes, and colors, and then to group them in some order.

    This still doesn't explain why Paulien turns the map all around when I'm asking for the road to travel, while I like the map at one point so I can better visualize our position. Help!

    Tour Buses Bring Tourists

    by BruceDunning Written Jun 6, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is no doubt loaded with tourists in the summer season. When we were there, it was even fairly crowded, and groups standing around the sites listening to the history dialogue while I was trying to capture a picture without them in the setting. Most difficult

    Test of courage - chapter 2

    by croisbeauty Updated Mar 20, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    ....The task was made up of jumping into the deep canyon and for the first atempt I could do it by jumping on the feet. The next atempt, later on or after few days, I had to do by jumping on the head. I was fourtheen when I've fulfilled thet task. See on this picture how it looks from above.
    When I am back here, after so many years, I think it was very crazy task, don't try it when in Pula.

    In the times of my childhood there was a task of courage every boy after turned 14 had to fulfill. This is a canyon called Punta Verudela, which is situated right behind the hotel Park. It has elevation of about 15 meters, but it is deep and narrow....

    Efficient guys !

    Efficient but not so nice guys ! Actually, in summer, parking is very difficult in the center of Pula and you have better park a little further and avoid both park meters and tickets ! If you drive towards the heights of the city, you will easily find plenty of free parking.

    High security, no entry !

    Nearly in front of the gate of Hercules is an impressive building with elegant windows secured by heavy iron grids. On this side of the building, nothing allows identifying it and you have to walk towards Trg Portarata to reach the main entrance...

    This is why the "nice guys" were so happy to go to work : they knew they were going to sprinkle these beautiful tickets on the cars that were either parked on the wrong place or that had exceeded the allowed time !

    BTW, you must know that if you get a ticket, you can pay it in any bank or post-office.

    If you click on the picture to enlarge it, you will see a bunch of nice guys (and dolls !). They are all clothed in a white uniform with a white cap and they seem very happy to be together, they are smiling and laughing. It is a pleasure to watch them!

    High security, the entrance !

    The main entrance of this mysterious building is at the end of Trg Portarata. Seen from Trg Portarata, it is even more impressive and looks wealthy. Wealthy !? Of course, it is a bank ! I bet your money will be kept under a high level of security behind all these grids !

    Pula is a mixed bag with a rather drab modern looking city. However, it does have ancient Roman ruins made before BC, which are considered the countries true treasures.
