Photos Of The Day: "Classic Oldtimer Motorcycles" Gathering in Rijeka....5 Year Old & Politician Soccer Fans.....

I'm sort of tied up with my graphic design program studies these days, but I do have a few minutes to quickly throw in some pics I found interesting. The first series of photos are just from a local retro or "Oldtimer Classic Motorcyles" gathering that took place in the city of Rijeka this Sunday morning. (I used to ride a motorcycle for a while after high school) Now, there's plenty of motorcycle clubs and events that take place in Croatia throughout the year, so this is not an actual "event" at all, (See links below), just a local neighbourhood thing, but I found it interesting because you don't see those kinds of motorcycles much these days. Some of them look like they're straight out of some Marlon Brando or Steve McQueen movie from the 50's or 60's.

The other two topics I threw in at the last minute, Assistant Secretary General for Public Diplomacy at NATO and Presidential candidate Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović showing her stuff on the pitch, it's not images one sees of the usually fancier dressed higher echelon politician. (You can't make good corner kicks while wearing heels). She's currently in the midst of a political campaign and also keeping an eye on some current war crimes proceedings at The Hague. (Many of them were the brains behind the 90's raping and genocidal ethnic cleansing sprees). That's as far as I'm going with that one because I have more important things to do. The bottom piece I just found to be a cute story worth mentioning.....

(If you're a fan of liqueurs (are there any people who doesn't like a yummy liqueur after filling their gut with bacon wrapped puretina, mlince, krumpir, gljive, mrkve, spuds, greens and dry crumbly cake and sladoled?), and especially if you live in the Chicago area, you may also want to check out this article, considering tomorrow is a holiday and Hallowe'en is coming

A Sunday "Classic Oldtimer Motorcycles" Gathering In Rijeka.

Rarely seen classic motorcycles and enthusiasts got together this Sunday morning in a Rijeka neighbourhood to check out the various styles from the past. Most of the motorcycles belonged to the local "Oldtimers Motorcycles Club", which consists of local classic motorcycles owners. Local residents also came out to check out the various models that are usually only seen in the movies.

Former Assistant Secretary General for Public Diplomacy at NATO & Presidential Candidate Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović On The Pitch.

Croatian Presidential candidate and NATO politician, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović was seen earlier today showing some soccer tricks on a practice soccer field. She showed up in the city of Osijek to not only show support for the Croatian National Team for their EURO 2016 qualifying match tomorrow, but also for the sport itself. She also wanted to bring attention to and promote various Croatian grassroots soccer/humanitarian projects as well as address the importance of exercise and healthy eating habits for future soccer star hopefulls. Over the last few years the Croatian National Team qualifying campaign has started to include cities other than the usual Zagreb and Split, other smaller market cities that have hosted qualifying matches are PulaRijeka, Varaždin, Šibenik and Vinkovci, this time the team will play at the nearby Gradski Vrt stadium, the home field of NK Osijek. (Croatia eventually went on to victory 6-0, and of course Kolinda was in the stands. Video highlights of the soccer match HERE)
