  1. Hello Lisa,

    What a breathtaking photo of the castle? chateau? house? on the island with the mountains behind. If you are only going to show us one photo, that one will do just fine!

    I was just invited today, by a couple here at the hostel in Paris, to visit them in Slovenia. I am tempted to take them up on it, since the last time I was in their territory it was Yugoslavia! (’67!) I explained to them that travelling alone in countries with which I am not very familiar is daunting to me, without a useful language in those countries. After all, I have to be SOMEwhere!

    Sounds as though you had a good time, but the elevator stopping 5 times below where you wanted to be is somewhat mysterious. Hmmmm…

    In Peace,


  2. Ahhhhh! I wish I’d had the chance to go to Lake Bled when I was there. Incidentally, we have Esther to ultimately thank for our enjoyment of Slovenia — she’s the one who recommended it to me.

Dearest Fellow Travelers, tell me what you're thinking!
