    Reunion with Boris

    June 3 in Slovenia ⋅ ☀️ 75 °F

    We were very lazy today, after our busy weekend. We slept in, then met Myj's cousin Boris Pleskovic for lunch. His mother and Myj's mother were first cousins. Myj met Boris in 1974 when she visited Slovenia. Then he visited her family in Oregon before beginning his Master's program at Harvard (and then he went on to earn a doctorate at MIT). Boris has had an illustrious career in the meanwhile. He was the Director of Research for the World Bank in New York for 30 years, then returned to Slovenia in the 90s when Slovenia gained independence, serving as a key advisor to the Prime Minister. His "retirement," job is as President of the Slovenian World Congress.
    We had an excellent lunch and lively conversation sharing remembrances of our visits to each other's homes in the 70s, and catching up on our experiences since then. His are a bit more impressive than ours! Nevertheless, he is still charming and we had a wonderful time.
    The rest of our day included a nap, a bit of laundry, catching up on my travel posts and a walk along the river studying all the restaurants before selecting one for dinner.

    Meeting Our Tour Companions

    June 4 in Slovenia ⋅ ⛅ 82 °F

    Our Rick Steves Tour officially started this afternoon. However, we met four of our tour companions this morning at breakfast. Barbie and Debbie, sisters-in-law from the San Diego area, were interested in the ethnographic museum, as were we, so we joined up for the walk and visit to the museum. Of special interest was the bee-keeping exhibit. Slovenians have an affection for their native Carniolian bees and a long tradition of bee-keeping.
    Then it was time to meet the rest of the gang, who come from the west coast, Arizona, New Jersey, Texas, Alabama and Michigan. Our guide, Darija led us on a short walking tour through one of the neighborhoods where "real people " live, then through the old city to the funicular. You can hike up the hill to the castle, but riding was nice, especially since it was hot and humid. The Ljubljana Castle is was more for fortfication than as a palace, so the most interesting thing at the top is the incredible view over the city. A "Welcome dinner" was waiting for us in the restaurant on the castle grounds. We enjoyed getting to know our new companions for the next two weeks over yet another delicious meal.

    Popping into Ljubljana

    September 18 in Slovenia ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

    Did a park n ride (check us out as proper Motorhome dudes now!) into Ljubljana city. Boys most excited about the bus ride! Nige and I were last here many moons ago in winter pre-kids -it’s def grown and modernised since then. The old town is still just as pretty and romantic.

    Nasvidenje, Ljubljana

    June 5 in Slovenia ⋅ ☀️ 77 °F

    Our last full day in Ljubljana began with a walking tour with local guide Sasha. He explained how the political history influenced the architecture of the city, and the contribution of Jože Plečnik to creating the beautiful city that Ljubljana is now. Our afternoon was free for a little shopping in the Farmer's Market and of course, some kava, some pivo and some vino with our lunch at a sidewalk cafe.
    Our new tour friends Barbie and Debbie invited us to join them for dinner at restaurant Danilo in Skofja Loca, about 20 minutes away by taxi. Danilo was one of the first "slow-food" restaurants in Slovenia. It was an amazing meal.
    We have absolutely loved Ljubljana. It is a beautiful, walkable city and the residents seem to know how to enjoy life.

    Nachmittags ging jeder wie er mochte kreuz und quer in der Gegend herum. Die Stadt bietet für alle Geschmäcker was. Und wer müde ist, sitzt einfach irgendwo hin und lauscht den Straßenmusikern oder beobachtet Leute.

    Nachmittags gings weiter mit einer 2,5 stündigen Tour zur Erkundung der Street Art in Ljubljana. Es wurden uns verschiedene Künstler und Arten näher gebracht. Sehr bunt das ganze und sehr interessant.
