What are Frontier Markets?

"As i was doing the research. I was fascinated by the sheer size of frontier markets in terms of population. Two point two billion people. A third of the world's population yet the economic impact at this point is still small only about three and a half percent of the world's gross domestic product the monetary value of goods and services produced a third of the world's population produces less than five percent of economic output. This size of the stock market's even smaller frontier markets. Make up less than one percent of global stock market capitalization that's the size of the equity market as determined by the price of a particular company times the shares outstanding less than one percent. And there aren't even that many stocks there are three thousand stocks that comprise the msi all country world index which is both developed and emerging markets. There are fourteen hundred emerging market stocks yet in the mci frontiers market and xers only eighty one stocks the countries that comprise that in. And i'll just go through the list. Because i think it's helpful and instructive to know what's there is croatia estonia iceland lithuania kazakhstan romania serbia's slovenia other countries include kenya morocco. Area bahrain jordan oman bangladesh lanka vietnam the largest country within the index as measured by market capitalization or sizes vietnam. It comprises thirty percent of the frontier market index. Morocco is twelve percent. Iceland's eight percent. Kenya seven percent. Kazakhstan is seven percent in looking at ways to invest the primary. Etf i found for us based investors is the i shares mci frontier and select emerging market. Etf i'm not sure exactly when i shares renamed it but the largest wait in that. Etf is kuwait at nineteen percent. And as i mentioned kuwait was upgraded from my frontier market to an emerging market.

Global Sting Began by Creating Message Service for Crooks

"Also it was a sting on a global level. The FBI helped create a fake app that tricked hundreds of crooks. ABC is Alex Stone explains how they did it. Well, Kitty. I mean, what the FBI did here was really ingenious. And they decided, you know what if criminals globally are communicating on encrypted, secure messaging apps? Why not just create our own? And that's what the FBI did. They built their own app on devices that criminals would use. They deployed it globally. It got popular around the world and Australia was one of the countries that really a lot of people began using it Croatia and elsewhere and nobody using it knew that the FBI was able to see every message the criminals were sending to one another the entire time that It was the FBI's own app that they were using. Here's a big announcement today in San Diego. The amount of intelligence that we received was staggering from seizing drugs, guns and millions of dollars in multiple currencies. To addressing more than 150 threats to life more than 300. People were arrested in advance of the worldwide take down and then 500 more in the past two days, so 800 people that Suzanne Turner with the FBI and San Diego agents say in San Diego, they were the ones who orchestrated this whole plan, and they took down other encrypted platforms they indicted and then Arrested or got them indicted and arrested. Other platform folks that had criminals using their platforms so the criminals will be a vacuum and criminals would have to go to the FBI's platform, not knowing it was the FBI's platform. It was called an, um and the whole time criminal groups had no idea. The FBI was watching every message. 27 million messages were sent in 45 different languages. FBI received a copy of each and every message originating outside the United States that crossed our platform. Similar to a blind copy of an email

How Being Yourself Makes You a Better Leader with author Minter Dial

"I want. say congrats on your latest book. You lead how being yourself makes you a better leader. What was the motivation for this book. So just like in the same idea. Be yourself how do you do that. And how much of you should you bring into work. We talk about authenticity transparency. But is it about being radically transparent. Radically empathic and radically you totally you. So that was the question. Mark ahead in my mind as i launched intas but actually i started writing this book in two thousand and fourteen and at the time i wanted to be like the book of my life like everything full out work personal and everything in between and it took me a long time to Stu and come up with this line which is hopefully to change the way we lead a not just in business but ourselves because in the end of the day. If there's is huge lack of engagement oversee the previously to books haven't exactly figure that out and then to understand how we can bring more of ourselves feel engaged fulfilled and up bullshitting ourselves at work. Which hopefully has knock on effective leading everybody else to want to be with you. Yeah i mean. Starting in two dozen fourteen. Roughly six years was their their moment where it accelerated for. You does seem like a long time. But i know other books. People have written not you but other people could take ten years fifteen years sometimes so. I'm just curious if there is an unlock moment for you. Well it's great. You know like those more academic papers need lottery such things like that. No this was the actually. The thing that happened here was sort of blocking moments Blocking tackle i had. I went off to croatia. At thirty thousand words. I was like all excited came back wife about it. I've really got a big slug of all of us. Had something happened. And i had actually three big loud bazooka moment blocking me or changing the course of my direction which included a call from the television station. Pbs saying hey mental. Your story so great. Let's put on television and clearly. That wasn't part of what i was thinking and and i'm busy doing something else. Meaning internet this actually takes preference so i then put on hold when off that one and then a friend of mine killed himself and that kind of took on another path and then so i've had these different things that have happened anyway. I would say that the walk. In kensington park with a friend of mine who had been published kogan page was the catalyst to getting contact with them and they said awesome. Great idea really. Love it and next thing you know. I had a publisher and that happened of course before the old pandemic started. We'll let's get into started down this path. And i stopped you apologised for the rabbit hole but i wanna to talk about what you mean by you lead. You talked about authenticity radically being yourself. Tell us a little bit more about what you mean by. You lied so i. I generally feel that everybody has leadership potential and but a lot of times. You sort of like won't take away the responsibility and this listen to orders. And i feel like if there's such disengagement at work something is not happening so the of initial premise. Is you lead you and you need to be master of you. Which essentially means at its heart getting to know who you are and what matters to you and so often we go through life. Allan where we're doing what we're supposed to do getting the title on the business card getting extrinsic ideas doing following in my father's footsteps or not as man whatever and we're not actually in touch with ourselves and this is a particular challenge when you're successful often mail. You just think that this is the thing and so the one. I'm trying to really griffin to is to be in check with who we are as an individual and then once we have that established we get rid of some of the chips in the shoulders. Were more cognizant when we're being emotional and irascible and disagreeable and and potentially more vulnerable and then we can definitely model a behavior that the rest of the team might follow through with got it and i mean those sound like great things to do like just a better know myself to be more aware of my own tics and talks. Yeah why is this important for leaders. Do you think well on one hand. My feeling is that leadership is still wonky. If not a terribly wrong and the other hand i think that is much as some people want to be authentic. It's they're not sure what they're being authentic about and why they're doing it so very quickly you can be put off the course you can be doing something because you think it's good to do because it's like there's the narrative being sustainable development is great. Let's do it but there's no real hook anchor back into who you are as we end up doing so many things because it's good to do. Oh that sounds like a really smart idea let's do that and by justifying rationalizing all these smart ideas. We actually ended up frustrating ourselves. Because we're going to not get to want to get too so i feel like the issue is. We've all been to university a lot of us or you know educated and were reading even if you haven't gone university it's fine but with intellectual curiosity we we kind of think we know ourselves because we have that arrogance may be pretension says i want of course i know myself. I'm fifty six allen. God dammit you crack question me on who i am but i think we have this sort of absolute ability gloss over the details. I'm an executive powerful. And i'm excited. I'm confident on curious. I'd fine but that kind of describes everybody at some level to sort of leggings generic concepts that you want to project but who are you deeply inside and if you're excited about sustainable development can you not attach it to something that's more relevant to you for example or hopefully i'll have one day grandkids. Well i'd like for them to live in an environment where okay well. That's at least a more personal hook as opposed to the intellectual size that it was going to help our customers think that we're better people.

Minter Dial talks about his new book "You Lead: How Being Yourself Makes You a Better Leader

"My first guest of the year and i'm so excited because he's also very good friend of mine is meant to dial into how i i a sam. How are you happy new year and my friend. Now minter is a successful author. Filmography speaker podcast. And he's also multi-linguistic. I've practiced that word several times. Because it's not easy for me to say minter. We're here today because you've got a fantastic. New book came out only yesterday. What's it called. What's it about name of the book. Thank you for having me on. Science is called you lead. How being yourself makes you a better leader. And it did. Indeed launched yesterday around the world except for north america which takes three more weeks Gotta do things differently and the books about leadership so the issue at some level is just another book on leadership but said the central premise is about leadership. Starting with how you lead yourself at home with your friends family and at work. 'cause real leadership has to start with leading yourself being ceo of your life. Why did you write this booklet. Where was the inspiration. What's trophies who write this so there's a little bit of a long answer on that one time. So just indulge me a second. I began writing this book in two thousand and fourteen and the premise was. It was going to be the book that i write. i like. We all say we have a book with us. This was going to be that book and such the thesis really was a wanted to talk about my life's learnings up until the age of fifty and naturally those learnings had to be both at work and out of work and so i. I started writing this book. I went off to croatia and thirty thousand words. And then all of a sudden bang big piece of news drops and i had to put the book aside and if you can imagine. I had that specific type of process where i went into the book. Big thing happens as in someone dies or her major event. And i keep on having to put the book. Aside in the interim i've done three other books and a documentary film and finally having heart official empathy out of the way. I said i got this went in. And i got the publisher. We got moving on. Its on on this leadership principle. And then i had it in my manuscript sam on the seventh of march seventh amounts twenty twenty twenty twenty which basically was a week before we all went down into lock dumb and god another big event because that was a pretty big event and they are. My gosh is not going to happen again. But fortunately i had. The team was on fellow. I got a chance to laron some pieces. That made it even more pertinent yet. Do i feel that. The concept of leadership needed to be dramatically addressed before the pandemic. And i'm delighted to feel that sort of satisfaction that the pandemic has revealed even more the need for new type of leadership in the future. And that's why. I wrote the book so you talk about a new type of leadership. What is this new type of leadership leading so unbalanced the real difference between any other type of leadership where we're also talking about performance and getting people everyone motivated. The real design here is to think about leadership being you and your personal and professional life so absolutely taking away. The wall between what usually is just where you have to go to work. You're a strictly professional here. I really am opening up the komo no to the idea of bringing your whole personality to work now. The challenge is just finding about how much of you do. You want to bring to work to provide that authentic sense of self and yet retain the privacy that is absolutely normal the intimate highly confidential elements of you that you don't need to have and the and the challenges inevitably is finding that cursor along the scale that allows you to be you yet. Keep some secret garden that we all have private more on the basis that we are now working from home here on a zoom cool with you. I can see part of your study going. Glimpse into your personal life just through this small portal view. The are half which of course if we were in an office together. I would never know that i would never know that. Was your talk box meat. And i'd never was on new shelf so all of those things that little snippets. Is that why you think we have to not be more authentic imelda to you. Personal public personas. Let's say that's the pandemic's version and there's another bigger piece to that. Which is that. Finally people are taking stock of mental health and generally whether it's in the army as or in business there's an element of bravado to the leadership. Suck it up. let's go get it. All done and fire up the team and yet seventy percent of employees systematically score themselves being disengaged from work so were now in a situation where when you see me in my home you might hear my kids. The cat might pop up on the desk. There's also behind the screen behind the mosque. Some realities that this pandemic has changed whether or not you have a personal issue with regards to someone being sick or dying. There's just a an overall menez that's out here and whereas before we Happens at home. Keep it at home. That's died on that selfish shit happening at work. actually now. my work is at home. I can't extract myself from that whether it's my tuck box or my surroundings but more importantly my personal wellbeing and whereas before we talk about efficiencies and effectiveness by can actually see my bed from where. I'm speaking the way you sleep absolutely has an impact on your productivity. So why aren't we at work creating environments where people sleep better for example having naps. Why is it that we just have to have the google pods. Just a few of those illuminated type of companies allowing for that whereas we should actually be training people where you're learning for development departments aren't just about how do you do a pl better. How do you make a product more efficient. But how do you sleep better because that energy that you gain. That's off the ball. I like to say. I use the in sports. We say on the ball where you're at work but off. The ball counts dramatically in any sport. How you play off the ball. And i think of time away from work as off the ball and that counts absolutely how you are as a person how you show up the energy you have and that sense of discretionary energy that you bring to work and that becomes a competitive advantage. I read the book why we sleep last summer. Brilliant book and change my productivity. I was dots. Bravado person up early three hour sleep for i sleep in i can do. I've been doing that since my army days. It's easy pa. And of course i then read the book about why we sleep in the house you need and then i read the book about kadian rhythms and wire naps quite useful in when we all pick women up. He has changed the way i work. Is that what you're describing that sort of productivity the borders one hundred percent and the funny thing is sam i got on the sleep. Bandwagon serendipitous lee. When i was investi i went to university in the states and i came across a course the fluffy of sleep and i was sitting literature and the sky called rose kind was on loan from stanford and he was doing a year and as part of his situation at yale he had to teach a course in so he brought this. He'd been studying. With the god of all gods of sleepy research the time build event and so brought this course and i got lucky enough to sign up for it and all of a sudden i took four courses all around sleep back in the eighties. And just expose me to my. Gosh we tell ourselves a bunch of nonsense with this sort of bravado stop for or just the thoughts we have for example sam and i'm going to guess that most people listening don't know this but you know how many dreams you haven't tonight. I don't but i'm guessing that's one or two though you wanted to. You remember generally speaking your sleep cycles. Lost one and a half hours on average lots of averages in this and then your dream period is about often especially at the beginning of the night and the that's called the rim sleep and here's a funny thing. Do you think that your dreams happen in real time or an accelerated time. Never thought about it before. Winter is my honest answer so the bringing it down to the granular level. The forty five minutes of your dream. The issue is how you recall it. So it's like a haze you recall it. And generally what people do kaleidoscope the way they recall their dreams whereas their dreams actually happened mechanically in real time. That's to say if you imagine you're walking down a whole your brain sending but it's cut off at the neck messages to the rest of your body to walk down a hole so as long as it takes you to walk down the hall. That's how long it happens anyway. There's so many wonderful things you can learn about the importance of dreaming porton sleep and so i like to bring it into the the professional space because i think it's just another elements of our personalized that is useful when we're in the working environment.

Travel to Zagreb

"Let's start with a look at a European capital that's often overlooked by the beach crowd who enjoy Croatia's crystal clear coastline. But miss out on the scene in its capital city. It has a distinctively modern take on old world charm and it's just a few hours inland. To tell us about saga we're joined now by local guide Darya goateed. She's joined by Ben Curtis who writes about the Balkan regions elaborate history and thinks that Croatia's best period may be now Darya in Ben Welcome my pleasure. Same. Thank you for having. US Doria. You're from Zagreb your guide in Zagreb, a lot of Americans no Dubrovnik. Venice and a lot of Americans know the Anna Zagreb is right there in the middle. What should we know about Zagreb? Nanna. Saga is I would say the mix of. All these big capitals around and all these much better known cities around from historical perspective It was influenced by different cities and countries. So we have a little bit of all of that. What's an example? How is it a little bit of? How is it a little bit of Italy says it a little bit of the Slavic World So? obas part of the hops Burke monarchy later austro-hungary for few hundred. Years. And then architecture in town is very much what we would call out through nor Central European. So the mixture of Hungarian hungarian-austrian. We don't have much Dubrovnik textures that. Is Zog. Is completely different about the cuisine that scene is also very influenced by Austria but not only that we do eat struggles and. A lot of meat and potatoes and then on the other hand we also eat. A lot of Pasta beat some. We are very sensitive on coughing, and then we also have the Turkish influence because arguable also for few centuries, just about forty, five, fifty miles Sir north from the Ottoman Empire boarder okay. It's a crossroads release across through the s the Ben Curtis here in American who has a fascination and a deep interest in this part of Europe how would you say Zagreb is unique Zagreb is unique for being this gem of a central European capital. So everybody can measure saying they know Budapest, Vienna, they know Prague, but here's this. Gym of a historical city that hardly any American visits right and even though Zagreb stars rising on the Tourism Front these days but you can go there and it's not gonna be jammed with busloads of tourists from all over the place you're not gonNA hear a lot of other North American accents and you're going to be able to experience the city where the fabric of locals you're going to be sitting in a cafe with mostly other people from Zagreb, and that's great and it's hard to find that in Dubrovnik are in Vienna these days a year. Exactly. So if you had two nights in in one Danes, is there enough to keep you busy. Yeah. For sure I think, what would you do if you're gonNA show me around for a day the it's a great kind of one day stop if you're coming in and out for some of the coast. So Zagreb surprisingly has some of I think are the best museums of its kind in Europe now they're quirky right? You don't. Go desire grab for the Louvre or something like that. But you go to Zagreb for these unusual small museums like the Museum of naive art, which is great sort of not formally trained perhaps painters but really characteristic art with peasant themes. The famous one which is kind of made headlines around the world is a museum of broken relationships which is filled with these stories of couples who have broken up the objects that they have Meant something to them and they've given it this museum and so it's just a really interesting kind of poignant sometimes hilarious trip through people's relationships. So when we think of this naive art, I love this idea because you go to most art galleries in Europe Bennett, the opposite of naive arted this refined fully embraced high-society art but naive art is by definition just unschooled hasn't Sir Working People that just had a passion for painting. Exactly but are often very, very talented even if they didn't train at the academy or something like that but they're expressing the lives and cultures and artistic visions of people from the rural areas and it's genius really an undiscovered genius that happen to come out of the farm community or something absolutely. I love that museum by the way that that's really one of the unique things in Europe and it is in the capital of Croatia Zagreb.

E.U. issues its first rule-of-law report, angering leaders of Hungary and Poland

"European Union has published today an audit of rule of law issues across its 27 member states, the first of what will be an annual review of Thie State of the blocks Democratic institutions as expected. There is criticism of judicial changes made by nationalist government's in Poland and Hungary in recent years, but concerns We're also raised about corruption in six countries, including Bulgaria. On DH Malta On Tuesday, The Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban called for the report's author, The You commissioner for values very Jehovah to be sacked All Europe correspondent Kevin Connolly joins us now from Brussels and Kevin just on hungry. How badly does the country come out of this report? There's nothing that will be unfamiliar to the Hungarian government in the charges, but they are not familiar concerns about the limitations of the freedom of the media and determination by the Hungarian government has seen from Brussels. To exercise undue influence of judicial process so that in effect the court system, the legal system in Hungary becomes less free. So it's not the freshness Of the charges, which will annoy Viktor Orban, the Hungarian leader. It is the fact that as you would have expected, they are front and center in the presentation of this case on the really fear in Hungary and in Poland, too. To a slightly lesser extent is the underlying threat, which is still present in this document, which is gaining currency and Brussels as an idea that if you really want to do something about this is the European Union. You have to link the spending of you funds from Brussels with adherence to basic rules about the rule of law, the freedom of the justice system on the freedom of the press. That's what really angers Viktor Orban on DH angers the Polish government, too. That's what they will always come out on the attack. That's why, of course, he's asking for the sacking or via your over the vice president, the European Commission. He certainly won't get that. But he wants to make this for his own domestic political audience about it about Hungary being under attack, rather than hungry, being criticized for falling short of international standards. How likely are other, You country's Tio follow up on on that threat. I think at some point, that idea is gonna have to work its way onto the political agenda. Because at some point I think the European Commission is going to be forced to conclude that persuasion simply doesn't work in these kind of cases. Viktor Orban Thie nationalist government in Poland, They're both going to pursue the same argument. That the European Commission doesn't understand what it's like to emerge from decades of Communist domination that certain measures are necessary that Poland and Hungary are not France and Belgium and the things of different so as long as The countries who are accused pushback in those terms. I think eventually the European Commission will be forced to acknowledge that it's going to have to use any financial levers at its disposal. It won't be quick because nothing involving the European Commission of the European Union is quick. But I think it's some point. It's inevitable on just briefly. The other countries mentioned I included Bulgaria immortal one of the concerns there is that about corruption. It's about both corruption and about shortcomings in the judicial process. In this special mention, I suppose for Bulgaria, Croatia and Slovakia who make both this and here's the takeaway from this. This is a 27 member institution. About a quarter of the member states, mainly former Communist states. About a quarter off them come in for some kind of criticism, so a bracing dose of freshness.

RegioJet launches train to Croatia

"Was clear early on the covid nineteen pandemic was going to be a disaster for the aviation business, and so it has proved him. It was clear almost as instantly that might be an opportunity for rail travel, and there is at least one indication. This suction has also been proved correct this summer check operator regional jet launched an overnight service from the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the Adriatic coast of Croatia and sold sixty thousand tickets on a hundred and twenty trains join from. Liana with more on this by Molecules Boca's correspondent Guide Alani. Going Festival it struck me anyway at least as an enthusiast. Rail travel and overnight rail traveled. There wasn't an overnight service from Prague Bratislav it to the Croatian coast seemed we'd so is anybody surprised by how successful this has been? I don't know if you look at it in terms of numbers sixty thousand passengers that's getting on for a tenth of all the check tourists who visited. Croatia this summer I mean in a normal season, the be eight, hundred, thousand checks going to the Croatian coast to call it all coast apparently when they're advertising it in the Czech. Republic. So, you're right. It was almost a market waiting to be created a to take that proportion of the passengers going from the Czech, republic, to Croatia, and that's a really stunning success. Because as you say, it wasn't even before and you couldn't actually got a direct line or we was a bit of a struggle as I recall to get a direct line from Lugano to react up, which is where the train was ending up and the train from the Czech Republic on radio jet jet whatever you WANNA call them. That was going through Lubiana so it could potentially be quite handy for me in the future. Is there a perception do you think that people feel like whether it's scientifically the case or not but feel like trains are currently a safe away to travel I guess there's a a feeling that you can open a window that you're not cooped up and breathing recycled air and having to be strapped in neck in close proximity to other passengers. The. Mind be that and it would depend on the train. Wouldn't it? I, mean th that's west. Serbia's trains would be a big advantage which I know you've traveled. that. The clapped-out old rolling stock with opening windows. So mean if I were working for the Serbian railways right now be saying, Hey, our windows open and. Off You go guys as much ventilation as you want I, think regional jets have been trying to. have themselves be marketed as a little bit more upscale even though that ticket prices are very cheap. They've been buying rolling stock from Australian railways and doing atop and You know the the coaches which were second at first class on Austrian railways running as second-class on radio jet trained. So that actually trump be comfortable, not just cheap cheerful and well ventilated and think at the time as well. The the very low numbers of coronavirus infections. In both the Czech Republic and Croatia, seven people talked about travel corridors will what's more Colorado like the train it literally has a corridor on a very often how important will this have been to Croatia this summer pasta because obviously like everywhere in the world reliant on tourism and the Adriatic coast of course, you're certainly reliant on tourism it will have been devastating is this been at least a little bit of a cap on the losses? Absolutely it's helped enormously and the architects were very good as well. If you can imagine these trains arriving Rica and disgorging at every turn hundreds of check tourists getting onto coaches to take them to other places on the Croatian coast. This was the way of saying we're safe and those pictures made it into the international media and as a result Kara's tourism season was down but it wasn't a disaster. God. bacchus correspondent. Thank you as always for joining us.

"Because it's so small you can walk anywhere that you want and not get lost like we could. We didn't get lost so I love the fact that it's gorgeous any European capital. I've been to but it's so small that it super accessible I other than you know. We're comparing somewhere like Vienna or or places like that. That are also jaw dropping beautiful. It's just a miniature version of that. I'll take it because I'm a generous person. I will concede to the fact. That Lubiana is more beautiful and quaint than Zagreb Zagreb. It is a cool city. We were there for one or two nights. It's Nice. It has some beautiful architecture but having that river and the pedestrian walkway on either side of it in. Liliana is something absolutely gorgeous. As I like to say or stunningly beautiful. Whatever it is it is however I mean. There are so many more cities in Croatia. That are sending in my opinion. Because you've got. We've got nick which we already mentioned. And even while it is a little bit overrun with cruise ships. Coming in and out. It is in my opinion the most beautiful city I have ever seen. And it's it's also small. Then you also have these other medieval cities where every and it just feels like. You're living in a different century while also just being on the coast so you have split which is Gorgeous Diocletian palace which is one of the oldest Roman ruin. That's preserved you can walk through it all. There's lots of fun restaurants shops and it's really gorgeous and it's right there on on the coast where you can have the biggest ports in. I think the biggest port in Croatia isn't split. You can take the ferry to all of those gorgeous islands that I have mentioned so many times. You've also got Makarska which we did a road trip. I mean talk about road. Tripping is one of my points as well. Croatia is one of the coolest road tripping countries. Because there's so much coast you can. We drove from Zagreb down to split. We stopped a way off the way apple. Vj Lakes but we drove from Zagreb to split. I mean that drive was not so epic however split down to Dubrovnik is gorgeous. We stopped Makarska. The very first time that we did that. Talk about a beautiful Queen Little City. Oh my goodness I have the picture hanging up in our house. I loved it so much. Then you also have the drive on the Pelvic Peninsula did Korcula and then we drove from Kortua down. Yeah you rolling your eyes because you know. I'm winning this one. I mean it's all coastal drives by the C. You Know No. We drove through the mountains as well again not the Alps but the rockiness of them juxtaposed up against the does see. I mean seeing mountains. That's everybody's dream. That's why like Slovenia. Could you got the Alps? You got real else or not next to see. I mean we have the mountains right there. I'll be there a little bit smaller than the Alps. A lot of bit smaller. They're still striking next to the Ocean. Like the city's just. Kinda go up and that is just stunning to me. So you've got Makarska Dubrovnik Split Korcula. We've got revenge in in history and the northern part of of Croatia. There's just so many gorgeous places to see now. My heart lies in the domination coast. That's where it's at for me but history is also you know it's it's it's a cool place to be issues okay. Dalmatian coasts is my faith one of the things that I love about Savina and Lubiana specifically is the fact that you are so centrally located so people don't know where SELENA's I don't blame you it again size of New Jersey here punches. Well above its weight creches cool but it gets pretty remote like when you get down in Dubrovnik and you get down split like you are starting to get very far from anything else. Obviously you have the water on one side your Bazi on the other side so you can get the Sarajevo. But you're certainly a long way away from anywhere else in Europe and then you sit in Slovenia and you say wow right to the West is Italy. I could pop on over to Venice. Milan right there. I could hit up Switzerland. Variously only co OP in Austria boom. Vm Sows Berg. I'm in Bratislav. I'm up in Budapest. Let me go up to Prague any of these areas. You're you're sitting at such a central point of Europe especially of that region of Europe which is considered. You're basically right. It's funny because they call themselves Central Europe right. You're basically right in between Western and Eastern Europe. And it's such a hub to get anywhere that you want to go so that you could sit there. You could take the motorways very very European saying the motorists there or you can just hop on a train and you can get to any of those big cities and they right at your doorstep. Where if you're going from Croatia you're definitely going to have to go and get on a flight or you're gonNA take a really really long train ride to get to any of them so for me. The accessibility to the rest of Europe. When you're sitting there in Lubiana like if you look at a map it just pin it. It's right there next everything else. You can just go anywhere. Your little heart desires including amazing places that we talked about Buddha Paschke sovereign. Even we're not talking about those countries we're talking about Savini. I'm just talking about the fact that you're you get to any of that and you know you want Slovenia's small so you might want to go somewhere else because it's not that big whereas when you're in Croatia you don't need to go anywhere else because you have over a thousand islands over twelve hundred miles of coastline. You've got hiking if you really now. Twelve hundred miles. I thought it was a thousand much. You got stat. Oh sorry no. It's a thousand miles of coastline and over twelve hundred islands. I you know I mean. There's there's so big there's a lot to see and do in this country so there's no need to leave especially when you are applied with good food and and good wine. Are we ready to go? There are we. Are we ready to out? I brought out Vigo already. He brought out in. The world. Enchilada was all finding good. But it's not gonNA sustain you for a whole entire trip. I'll run on July auto all day every day. Well I happen to like a little more sustenance in my life in liquid for actual physical food for Him Croatia. Some of the best wine in the entire world. There's so many amazing wineries both white wine and red wine. I think that people talk about wind. They talk about Spanish wine and talk about Italian wine even French. You Know Champagne what have you? Croatia has so many amazing wineries. And again you can drink wine in these medieval cities. They have wind bars. They also have incredible food. Go ahead saying yes The best meal I've ever eaten was in a very UN touristed remote part of Croatia culture stack and we went to the seafood restaurant there as we drove down the pell Jezek peninsula. It was the best if we ever have. We got the seafood platter for two. It was enough to feed three adults in Mensa. I'm really just amazing. Grilled fresh seafood caught that day. You know by the owner of the restaurant. Who's the fishermen WHO's the chef? It was so delicious like we still dreaming about in talk about it. And that's just one meal I mean. They also have amazing local cheeses Croatian cheeses they have amazing cured meats the same as you can find in Italy but you know Kareishe should does it to it. Has that whole vibe of the local cheeses and the meats and the winds and they do a lot of like the cantaloupe and per Shudo. We've had they're just so good so fresh I love it. It's my favorite thing to eat and that paired with the wine of Croatia I mean I could just I could live there in fact hopefully someday maybe I do live there. Well you know that. I don't have much of a leg to stand on when it comes to fighting against Vittachi. Which is the best meal that we had on record on this podcast of saying? Both of US agreed. That was the best meal that we had in two thousand nine hundred nine so fine. Amazing seafood in In Croatia the Food Lubiana and the food in Slovenia itself. I think has a bit more variety. So they do have incredible seafood. There Vino relay which is right in Savannah we love but they also have a lot of I would say maybe more eastern European influence food as well. So you've got your Barack. You've got your Your meats your shave appease things like that so while there is not a restaurant that stands out at quite as much as Petacci in Croatia. Which is our favorite meal two thousand nineteen. I think that they're that Savini as a whole it's gastronomic influence and its gastronomic Kind of identity is up there with Croatia and I think that there's a little more variety in Slovenia and Croatia. What else am I going to say? I throw on top of that as you've already mentioned the beautiful delicious creamy incredible Gelato at Vigo and Yeah I'm going to say that you know there's some good eating and some good drinking and Slovenia as well may not their own wines not much of wind guy but there is some cool stuff there the last point for me for Slovenia as why it's better than Croatia and this goes along hand in hand with the touristy thing is that Savina is also now cheaper. I'm not going to say much cheaper than Cratia. There are some things that are much cheaper right independent where you are with. The tourist crowds to Creche has come a a rise in price especially for like accommodations and stuff. So if you're going in the peak season not always going to be really crowd. It's GonNa be pretty expensive. I mean we're talking Western Europe prices at this point. It's true we I went there in like two thousand fourteen. I think and it was much cheaper than it was last year when we went. I mean so for me. I'm sitting there saying. Listen it's cheaper get to Safina while still a bit more undiscovered be like the people who went to Cratia fifteen years ago. You feel like you have a hidden jam at your fingertips that people have not discovered yet. I just to me that holds a lot of sway. This idea that there's less people s people who know about it it's a it's a bit under the radar it's a bit of a hidden gem it's cheaper and I just love the fact that Slovenia for being so tiny has everything. I could want a great little city. A little bit of coastline super accessible to the rest of Europe. And some really cool stuff right around. It Lake bled and the Alps right there in a country. The size of New Jersey. So for me is Slovenia. I mean Slovenia is a beautiful country. But for me I love being near the water and twenty miles of coastline. Just is not enough for me and while Piranha is a cute. It'll teeny tiny city. I much rather have my pick of ten plus coastal cities that are like Perran. I mean even more because when you come at the islands in like we were on court. Shula incorporate self has its own little medieval city. When we went to the island of we went to bowl and that was its own little city. I mean there's just so many you could we haven't even seen all of CRATIA. We've been there three times and I just want to keep going back because there's so much more to see and you know as far as affordability goes it is a little bit more expensive than Slovenia but it's still cheaper than the coastline in Italy. The coastline in France. I'm I don't know I mean about speen in in Portugal but it's still pretty fantastic as as for as for affordability. Well you guys have it. I we didn't hold back. We went at.

"And there about forty five minutes to an hour apart. So to drive, the whole harm valley from Bella Luca. So if you come into the port and Val Luca to drive over to coach little town and Lombardo where we were is about forty five minutes. Now, it's, it's a significantly sized island. We had a bit of a mishap when we got off the ferry we won't get too much into it. Now, if you want to hear the mishaps from this trip, most of which happened in creches seven out of eight happened in Croatia. You can check that out. It's called Craciun mishaps that podcast just came out. But essentially, we restrained because our car died. We got another car. We drove the hour to Lombardo, I thought Lombardo super nice cute really relaxed if you want if you want that if you want there to be very few things to do other and just walk. Around eat some seafood, by the sea hit the little beach, go to one of the two wineries if that sounds awesome to you, then definitely you should stay in Lombardo because it's, it's easy to get around and really cute if you want a little more and going on, and I don't mean crazy nightlife by any means. But if you just want a bigger area, and more restaurants, and things to do then, maybe you stay in court. So the old town again, there, right? You can easily you could walk in between the two cities if you want, it's like a two hour walk two and a half hour walk maybe but it's just drive. Yeah, I want more stuff, course littletown less stuff Lombardo, we stay in Lombardo at the dreamers club. Yes. And the, the dreamers club was really beautiful.

Two hundred twenty eight of dots lines and destinations coming to you from Zagreb Croatia this week as his traditional in early January of bunch of our crew had to somewhere in Europe to drink and explore and have some fun. We are doing a beer tasting as traditional during this episode. We've started and I'm not gonna pronounce any of the beer names. I posted a picture then that's the best. You're gonna get from me. We've started with mostly the old ones has got a nice Happel cider hard cider with him. And throughout this show. We might try to provide commentary and that does far how's the center because the beer's not very good? Okay. Yeah. Initial correction. I would say we're doing tasting that call this beer. Really? This is just just just, you know, you don't know. It was the beer section. I've just saying that needs his hand. Model? Also like, it was literally next to all the other heart imported ciders. I've not doubting you of dissent. All right. We'll might be over at the end of this which. Honestly, probably better than if we get drunk off these beers. Anyway, the others seem croakers to go there. Wow. That other issue here. Good friend, Steve who's joins us. Once again, so often the show Steve. I up as we tend to enjoy on these trips. How was your flight in eventful, isn't that boring? You guys both came in on United rights into Europe. Yes, you're yet. United does not yet. Played his autograph. Right. You'd mentioned early. They're actually starting this. That's one of their new summarize and American right? Yes. Believe american. I think Americans also starting department problem. They're doing both. I think so I remember Dubrovnik now that you mentioned I don't remember if they were doing both or not. But anyway, yeah, it's we actually I know we were talking about this other day, there's a new terminal new airport terminal of airport, and it's gorgeous, very gorgeous. As you guys noted. But it's gonna be a disaster was the Americans show up. It's not designed for big planes. I mean it it's a hub hub. I use took term loosely for Croatian airlines, and they have a total of twelve planes. Six cue for hundreds more three twenties and two three nineteenth. Sure. And they don't even use the gates. We used to hard stand on q four hundred when I flew in the they at least use the gates for the brigade line planes. Okay. I guess my, you know, you say it's not a quip for. But when we were here when I landed I came in slightly more circuitous, which I mentioned a minute. But there was a Korean seven eight seven dash nine on the ground and we're staying in the hotels their crew. So we know that they are they do do some planes. Alright some bigger planes and emerge, and we know doesn't have anything small sure. So and Qatar Airways flight here. Yes. But a three twenty saw yesterday when I came in. Oh, this is that crazy on three twenty route. Yeah. Awesome. So anyway, I mean, the new terminal has plenty of space. It will be interesting to see. What comes of that? Gorgeous harm. I just can't imagine. Because the US flights will probably leave around the same time. I can't imagine an extra three three hundred fifty people in that building at the same time. Yeah. Debrief Nick only for American. So anyway, yeah, it's it's interesting. I came in I actually flew to Sarajevo a day early and did Lufthansa across the ocean. Three fifty from Boston to Munich. It was probably half loaded in in coach. So I had to lifelock bed in the back of Konami and then later load than that on the Lufthansa ninety one ninety five from eunuch down to Sarajevo, and then an even lighter load than that from Sarajevo up to Zog grab. So at this pace when I go home, I'll be the only person on the plane, you're flying while decent Decent chance. only or they're bankrupt on Monday when I try to do Tuesday when I try to do it. So we'll see. Either. They'll take your fifty bucks for the upgrade, and then shutdown or. The fifty bucks to put some fuel on the plane. Jan sexy. Oh to the runway. This is interesting. I realized this is twice. Now. I've flown the ULC's across the Atlantic..

Also hearing from the French team who took part in a pretty remarkable and emotional passionate press conference that lasted nearly three quarters of an hour. Jahic Noah described his three years in office, so to speak, and he also gave a very forthright sets of opinions about the changes to the Davis Cup nixed year in short, he ain't happy. So we got through all of that Katherine Wichita had Katherine. Hi, David grad. Matt is here still in Lille. But no longer in a twenty six thousand seat stadium. Believe matt's. You've you've had a cheese board and you're in your hotel room. Yes, I've made it back to the hotel siphoned sound and very tied. You just before we came on air. You just said crikey. I'm Todd now. It's seventy hit. You didn't it? It did. Yeah. It's been been long days. I was I was stadium far early than Anita this morning. I wanted to say, hey, it was practicing out of play show. The and then Noah had them both practicing. So I learnt nothing. Hey, she did though because you said on Twitter that. If it's any if it's any indicates a young our spending more time on liquor police, the Kuhn's that's true. Then the end that proved to be excellent detective work. David David, I happen to David's giving up the of change to non days to be hit recalled this podcast. I if that's not dedication between the two of you. I don't know what it means. Of course. We'll still have the cheese. She's making her own up. Just I would love an Endo's. No. Yes. Okay. Does cheese boiled, let's get on with the podcast. So straight sets win from Chile. That's what it says on paper. Matt you're in the stadium is that it was as simple as that. I mean, whether any dramatic moments toll the first set tiebreak was very crucial. I think I think if pre at manage to get that we could have had a rail matching our hands, but shit was superb in that tiebreaker really found his forehand would offer lotta winners took that. And then from there he was away. And at that point, I didn't really feel like play was capable of winning. It was all to do whether shila wiscon- of capable of losing it from there, which we have seen him to before. And even in the Davis Cup final. But he he was having. None of that today. He was excellent as much as we've talked about his was closing matches out in the past. He was superb today really took choke and just was a man on a mission really pretty big die for him written. Because I mean, did you did you have any sort of concerns watching him? Because I I know yesterday. You did I did today. I really didn't everything was was functioning wasn't it. Yeah. I mean in terms of his tennis. I mean, it was it was close to US twenty fourteen tennis at its best. I mean, no not from the stall. He was obviously nervous. It took a world fame to crank into gear crucially he did. So when absolutely matted the mice not first that tiebreak felt like it was everything is certainly felt like it was more important for you to an than than fitted. She just felt his heartbreak opponents in tiebreak. But yeah. At its peak. It was it was maybe not quite as good as USA pin twenty fourteen. But it was it was in the same vein. It was in the same. Just I am this. I am a big serving six. What is he six six? He's a little bit shorter. The news, David, it's you know, you could hit gore, and even his voice echoing around his head just saying go out that I'm both this tennis gold. That's what you should be doing with yourself.
