Category Archives: Travel and Places

I go to a lot of places, usually for work. I have a “ritual” of filming in them after hours, and some of the series of films I have made, as well as other writings, are in this section. These vlogs will be subcategorized by country and visit.

Uncle Davey’s Cyprus #3/6 – I’d rather be poolside


 

Original YT playout date: 10 May 2008
Duration: 5:02

Third part of the Cyprus series focuses back on the poolside life of the Mediterranean Beach Hotel.

This was the first series put together by the way on Power Director and this part of my YT history kind of marks a transition to using Cyberlink, rather than MS Video creator. Read the rest of this entry

This is a new aquarium in the “Business Shark” bar in the departures area of the new terminal at Warsaw airport.

They have a snail problem – nothing a few clown loaches couldn’t solve, but then they might have to kiss their shrimps goodbye too…

They are obviously still very much in love, but sulking. Each is hoping the other will turn around first. They miss each other, although they are only two feet apart, it may as well be another continent.

Huliganov’s Turkish Experience #21 – Journey home from Turkey


Original YT playout date: 4 May 2008
Duration: 14:08

The 21st and final part of Huliganov’s Turkish experience – final that is until I go back there in 2014, This rounds off the current series, and some folks from Turkey who watched all 21 episodes concluded that I came away with a better understanding of Turkey than most visitors they know about, which I took as a great compliment. I think Turkey’s a fantastic place. Much better than I thought it would be.

Before my first visit I did not want Turkey to join the EU because they might spoil it by introducing Islam. Now I’m more worried that the EU could actually ruin their successes, built originally by the massive statesman Ataturk. They have a secular society, which means that although Islam is the majority religion, most people in the big cities are fairly disinterested and the clerics and zealots don’t get to push everyone else around. They know how to deal with Islam in their society, we don’t. We give the Islamic pushers more room to manoeuvre than they get in Turkey, and the EU would probably end up telling Turkey to give more freedom to the religious conservatives, allowing them to wear their scarfs in Parliament, etc, as well as forcing them to stop preparing certain local delicacies which we think are not healthy, like sheeps’ intestines.

In the end one way or another, we may be destined never to be in the same Union, but we should be close friends with Turkey, and allow them the best trade and mobility relations with our countries.”

A Night in Wrocław


Original YT playout date: 12 April 2008
Duration: 15:48

“Which is pretty much what it says it is. This is a bit different because I’m still getting used to the new editing software I bought. The images are too dark, but I don’t get a lot of leeway there – I film when I’ve got free time, and that usually tends to be the evening hours.

Anyway, enjoy the atmosphere of this stroll, meal and also drive in night-time Wroclaw.”

Huliganov’s Turkish Experience #20 – “Back to Cicek Pasaji”


Original YT playout date: 7 April 2008
Duration: 8:18

If a restaurant has been good, I like to go there again. So, more great live music and food shots, as well as a visit to the celebrated Koska shop, the home of Turkish Delight!

Nice to see the same faces and hear the music and taste the food. I hope to go there again one day. I wonder if the same guys will be there.
