Motorcycle Travel Series by @velimir 'Time, as you like it' (Part #218)

'Time, as you like it'


The three fellows who were chatting with the bartender just left and I remain the only guest. The bartender is very quiet. I try exchanging a few courtesy lines but I notice that he is deep in his thoughts. I don't want to break his routine, so I rather roam around the place and take pictures. He is very likely the owner, as well.

The country pubs, especially on the hiker's paths, often have instruments on display that anyone can play. I find a guitar sitting in the corner. I can already see a jolly bunch singing local tunes. This used to happen more often before. I wish this accordion, neatly set up on a wall, could talk. I'd probably hear many stories. Stories of what has been happening in this place for many years. These would be interesting to hear. We also travel so we can hear stories. :)

I can hardly remember dismounting my bike and walking in a place where I've found people singing a song. The Internet took its toll on human interactions all over the world. Times are definitely changing. But, the coffee is really good in this empty gem of a place. Maybe a little barrel above the door awaits someone to open it and to start singing? :-)

The vases on a drape holder. Cannot tell if they kept them up there traditionally or it is only set like this for decoration purposes. Maybe it was a necessity when cupboards were full, back in the day. I like the little clock up there. It was carefully inserted, appearing as if trying to cautiously tell its own story of endless counting of minutes.

Time, a dear ally or a strong adversary. However you want to perceive it, its passing is still an inevitable fact. To some people, it slowly takes all they have, to others it brings boons they've never expected. The point might be not expecting too much. As soon as one stops expecting others to behave according to one's expectations, one's half solved the life's riddle. Time is just a row of numbers. Just like the age. You should never let a number dictate your feelings or self-image or any expectations for that matter. Each of us must learn how to let the time pass and gracefully accept its gifts of wisdom and balance. Untouched by opinions or general vibe.

Just like this place does.

Enjoy your day! :-)

Nice reading, thanks!

yes it was

Lovely pictures, im surprised by the beer barrel high up on display. Was it big? If it was small, could it be the water barrels that the dogs used to have around there necks? I think it was dogs, huskies?? Not sure. Lol.. Or maybe that was whisky, to keep people warm.. hmm im confused lol.

"Time is just a row of numbers" How true. As my row gets longer I can no longer accelerate to overcome it's passing so I have to enjoy each instant more and more. You and your posting certainly help with that.

My best friend forever played the accordion in his youth. I wonder if he still does. I need to find out...

Thanks Velimir. As always, it is a terrific post.

How do write these things.I am so amazed by your thoughts.Do not have a idea how to express it.But this is absolutely marvelous

A good tradition in your country, to have tools on which you can play. I like the old style of these objects that you photographed. I would even call these things the fashionable words "Crafting".
The time for these things is more of an "ally", it makes them special - adding pride.
Thank you and have a good day :)

Everything has a story, however small. You've just got a look for it! Scratch the surface a little and you'll be amazed what you might find!

very nice! ride safe my man. #throttlesociety

I am really starting to enjoy this series. When I saw it for the first time, I guess I didn't really realize what you were doing here. But I like it.

I really wish bars around here would let you play the instruments. Then, I would actually go to them. Cheers!

wow..i felt it like a setting of a old movie..very have explained everything very nicely :)

Once again superb collection man. I have nothing to say about your talent and how you work. You are going really high day by day I appreciate your work.
Everything looks such a great fantasy. @velimir
Superb man.

That was very nice to read Velimir, thanks for that. We wish you a great day. Best wishes from Phuket

you are really good at writing something, I am proud to have a friend like you .. you are very good ..

I can hardly remember dismounting my bike and walking in a place where I've found people singing a song. The Internet took its toll on human interactions all over the world.

it's sad isnt it? that we're falling apart instead of uniting. many languages are going extinct because of this...

Time is an essential. i'd like to call it my ally and keep it by my side, for it will never wait for anyone... I've also learnt not to expect too much from somethings in life, and to live freely each day, keeping to time ..

Beautiful writing.

Once again, this post is excellent in pointing out history and shows how technology has evolved and really come a long way.

The concept of having instruments just sitting in a pub for people to create entertainment is awesome. Id love to stumble across a small bar like that one day

This post reminded me of the series Dark on Netflix. There are so many clocks in here too! Also, I recommend it!


"The Internet took its toll on human interactions all over the world" so sad but true, I completely agree !
