Where is the Feldmarschall out hunting?

Octavian (lustig): Der Feldmarschall sitzt im krowatischen Wald und jagt auf Bären und Luchsen.

In Kopački Rit, most likely:

Hold on, you will say, Octavian talks about bears and lynxes and you’re showing me fish and water snakes?! Perhaps he’s hunting for neither 😉 Also, this was almost 300 years ago, so we can imagine the Eurasian wild was wilder back then.

But lynxes are cool, so let’s say the Feldmarschall said Croatia but meant Slovakia:

That landscape and the crunching snow makes me wonder if I wouldn’t like it better in the company of the whiskered husband… Had you asked me 15 years earlier there would’ve been no contest! Bonus at 3:50min in: kittens!

  3. First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior
    to writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my ideas
    out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing
    but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to
    figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Kudos!

    • Hi 🙂 well, I guess it’s best to start with what comes naturally and edit later with beginning and end. Maybe blogs are different, though sometimes I too have trouble putting my ideas in order. I think in the end it’s a matter of practice and of writing what just flows out of you.
