Perhaps what makes something special are tiny little things like a smile or a good laugh. Or big things like a stunning view of a waterfall from a cliff or a quite big lake in a very hot afternoon. Once we shared one of those, a special link is created. One day, I will remember Bled's Lake [above] or the Open Theater [right, last set of 2 pictures] as lovely places but today both are just small parts of a bigger picture of a beautiful country with beautiful people.
My working trip was planned a long time ago under a strategic plan that was designed to enhance international connections. This destination was decided because it filled the criteria. It wasn't a traveling destination, my expectations had little to do with the country itself... I just wanted our meetings to be fruitful for everybody.
Maybe that's the reason why the small beautiful beloved Ljubljana, the mountains and the amazing forests had me from the first moment. Or perhaps it's because we've been spoiled by the lovely people we had the privilege to deal with, and will never forget their generosity and kindness. Hvala!
Either way, I feel moved by the experience, and hope to be back in the (near) future. I miss Slovenia!
You were all right about my destination! Brilliant! Talida and Clumbsy Cookie please email me your address so I can send you a little something from Slovenia. ;)
Stay tunned, I'll post a most memorable meal in the mountains, and a traditional "moving" cake very soon.
