The Rijeka Carnival Snowboard Session - 2009

This piece came across one of my google alerts today, and I must say I wish I was there. Rijeka is a coastal city situated on the northern side of the Adriatic Sea coast, close to the borders of Slovenia and Italy. There you can find palm trees, nice beaches and it gives off a truly Mediterranean feel. Having this winter sports competition there in November is really a cool thing I think. I currently live in a Canadian city known for the nearby ski hills and even here they haven't started anything like this yet. It must be pretty cool to be able to participate or watch the contests, with a spectacular view of the Adriatic Sea just steps away. Wish I was there right now to enjoy it with some of my friends that I had a chance to meet just this past summer, maybe next time I show up in the non-summer season.
