The hamlet of Sevnica, population 5,000, sits right in the middle of the small, alpine nation of Slovenia, in a green valley along the Sava River, surrounded by pine-forested hills.

“It’s really an amazing climate,” chirps Lidija Ogorevc, a cheerleader-peppy tour guide here. “You should try our wine, our salami.”

She stops in front of a fenced-in building — not unattractive, but clearly closed.

“A cultural monument,” she declares.

This used to be the factory where Amalija Knavs, the mother of Melania Trump, designed children’s clothes decades ago, when Slovenia was still part of Yugoslavia.

The first lady, born Melanija Knavs, is a native of Slovenia — which, to many Slovenians’ frustration, is often confused with Slovakia, another tiny European country.

In Sevnica, where the first lady was raised, Ogorevc leads a tour that includes the first lady’s elementary school, the Communist-era apartment block where she first lived and the neighborhood where her parents still own a handsome, two-story, black-roofed white house. (Viktor and Amalija Knavs are often in the U.S.)

The five-hour walking tour, which costs about $90 for two, is one of several Melania-themed tours offered by the Sevnica municipality

Always fun to get to play tourism bureau. Here’s the original caption for this video - note Aoraki sitting in the opening shot background.

One of my best decision in life was to go on a 15,000 km journey across New Zealand. So, I put a little video together to convince you to do the same!

hay long time ago yuo mentinoed dash and some bees it was likea vacation but beepeopl ecan we hear abt it

Ooooooo goodness.

So it’s a planet with a tourism bureau that essentially pairs you up with an “escort” for the weekend - and the escort is one of the planet’s citizens (who does the job voluntarily and for fair pay, btw, nothin shady). All the escorts are an anthro bee-like species with stingers that release a really powerful drug, and the drug has a lot of great effects on humans: strong, positive hallucinations, increased libido, a general buzz that’s better than narcotics but not as addictive…

And so your escort takes you on a weeklong private tour of all the beautiful natural wonders of the planet, sightseeing by day and camping (and fucking) by night, keeping you high throughout and in general just blowing your goddamn mind.

Dash, being a hedonistic young man of considerable means, has done this trip solo more than once, and… always somehow ends up bringing a “souvenir” back in his guts that he didn’t mean to… Let’s just say the escorts can put a couple eggs in you if you’re not extra careful. ;))))

We tried rp walking in Ironforge and were killed by guards and eventually a Hunter

We visited Stormwind, paid our respects by kneeling in front of Varian Wrynn’s grave and monument AND THEN AN ALLY WARLOCK ATTACKED US

We will be writing strongly worded letters to the Alliance Bureau of Tourism, we are very disappointed with the hospitality of our sightseeing.

..Returned back safe from #Switzerland this is my third time visiting Switzerland and because I am the honorary ambassador for Switzerland so I felt even more of a sense of familiarity and I was pretty excited even before the filming started. All the staff members and the chief of the Switzerland Tourism Board did the filming well enjoyably but an unexpected situation happened before we left for the airport and everyone was taken aback and shocked by the situation. We don’t wish for this to happen again but perhaps if we were to experience this again, it seems like we will be able to handle it better and I will give a detailed explanation next time for the tourists. Nobody was injured and everyone ate and slept well and came back. Seems like everyone will be able to see Switzerland’s beautiful sceneries and tasty food through “One Night Food Trip” which will be broadcasting in July. I’m, as expected, looking forward to it. Sorry for worrying everyone. I heard it also became a big news in Switzerland. No matter where you go and when, safety is the most important. To SHINee’s Minho who did the filming on my behalf and the production crew of “Your Delivery Is Here”, sorry and thank you. I will work even harder to show you a more hardworking side of me..

..Je suis revenu sain et sauf de #Suisse ceci est la troisième fois que je visite la Suisse et parce que je suis ambassadeur honoraire de Suisse alors j’ai encore plus senti une certaine familiarité et j’étais plutôt excité même avant que le tournage commence. Tous les membres de l’équipe et le chef de du Bureau de Tourisme de Suisse ont bien profité du tournage mais une situation inattendue est arrivée avant que nous partions pour l’aéroport et tout le monde était pris de cours et choqué par la situation. Ne ne souhaitons pas que ceci se reproduise, mais peut-être que si nous devions l’expérimenter de nouveau, il semble que nous serons en mesure de mieux la gérer et je donnerai une explication détaillée la prochaine fois pour les touristes. Personne n’a été blessé et tout le monde a bien mangé, dormi et est revenu. Il semble que tout le monde sera en mesure de voir les beaux paysages de Suisse et la délicieuse nourriture à travers “One Night Food Trip” qui sera diffusé en Juillet. J’en ai, comme attendu, hâte. Désolé d’avoir inquiété tout le monde. J’ai entendu que c’est aussi devenu une actualité importante en Suisse. Peu importe où que vous alliez et quand, la sécurité est le plus important. Pour Minho des SHINee qui a fait le tournage à ma place et l’équipe de production de “Your Delivery Is Here”, je suis désolé et merci. Je vais travailler encore plus dur pour vous montrer un côté encore plus travailleur..

Demon Day

And it dawned like
a bloody yolk cracked
unexpected eclipse
and the Earth shuddered–

they came in twos or threes,
confused from the long trip
up, and blinded by the
moondark sun.

They spent a day here,
eating of the green things
that do not grow beneath.
And visiting the mall.

Beneath the crescent moon,
they slipped back into
the earth, back home.
Leaving a trace of brimstone.

The tourism bureau was pleased
that their ritual worked.

What did you think?

Ledyba Time pt 5

uhhh fly from chucks wife -> heal amphy -> gym time 

presumably jasmine fired all her old rock type gym trainers and just hasn’t had time to hire any steel ones

Honestly i’m worried about this battle because she’s got two magnemite with thunderbolt and a steelix with rock throw. Fortunately I was able to out-potion the thunderbolts and then

unfortunately it thawed soon after, and she had a hyper potion handy

BUT IT DIDNT EVEN MATTER

Elytra’s first Double Freeze™

we were two cool for jasmine ehhehe


We bopped on over to the next city.

The Mahogany Town Tourism Bureau takes a stand.

The guy who monitors the only path to Lake of Rage notes that many people who use his gate, which again, only leads to Lake of Rage, seem to be headed to the Lake of Rage. Fascinating.

Elytra and Shiny Gyarados have a heart to heart. 

Your icy riddles couldn’t hold us off forever Pryce

we hit a milestone

learned some cool new tricks

and defeated a senior citizen

oh and there was a part where we cleared the local crime syndicate’s secret base but that was boring. the next part features MORE crime syndicate and MORE towers so get ready for that

Jesus in Ancient Japan? 

In a small town called Shingo, located in the Sannohe District of Aomori Province, Japan, the local people have a maintained a very unusual and interesting tradition for generations.  According to the people of Shingo, their small town is the final resting place of Jesus Christ, the holy savior of mankind in Christian theology.  According to the legend, during Jesus’ younger days, a period of time which is little mentioned in the Gospels, Jesus moved to Japan in order to study religion and theology.  At the age of 33, Jesus moved back to Judea to preach to his people.  As we all know, his religious and spiritual message was not well received, and he was condemned to be executed by Crucifixion.  However, instead of being crucified and resurrected, his younger brother Isukiri took his place on the cross while Jesus escaped back to Japan.  Once in Japan, Jesus settled down as a garlic and rice farmer, married and raised three children, then died at the age of 106.  He was then interred in a small tomb at a local hillside, a site which today is maintained and managed by a local yogurt factory.

Every year in spring, an annual Christ Festival is held where a religious ritual is performed to “console the spirit of Jesus”, a ritual that has been staged by the local tourism bureau since 1964. There is also a museum called the “Legend of Christ Museum”, which houses relics of the Japanese Jesus and sells souvenirs such as coffee mugs and coasters. Entrance fee to the museum is 100 Yen (about 85 cents). It is interesting to note that only one resident of Shingo is a Christian, and most of the 20,000 yearly visitors of the grave are non-Christians as well.  However the people of Shingo passionately maintain that their grave is the real deal.  Local scholars claim that the village was founded by a group of diaspora Hebrews, and cite as evidence cultural attributes of ancient residents during the time, and a handful of words in the local dialect which kinda sort of somewhat sound like Hebrew.  

However the ultimate proof is in a set of scrolls, memoirs and the last will and testament of Jesus himself.  Unfortunately the scrolls were destroyed in a firebombing raid during World War II, however the Legend of Jesus Christ Museum houses a translated replica.  The replica scrolls are signed, “Jesus Christ; Father of Christmas”.
