Ljubljana, Slovenia

March 24, 2014

A few weeks ago a friend and I flew from Moscow over to Ljubljana, Slovenia for a 10 day trip around the Balkans. It was such a nice time away, so interesting, informative, and fun.

We only spent a couple of days in Slovenia before heading over to Croatia, so the only cities we spent any time in were the capital, Ljubljana (Loo-b-yana) and Bled. We happened to show up in both cities just in time for their Carnival celebrations, so that added some fun to each city. This was my first experience with “couch surfing” and I have to say that it was a positive one.

The lights on the bridge made the river a pretty green color

This bank, at night, made me smile just to look at. Isn’t it fun?

Graffiti pics seemed to be the theme of the trip

Metelkava…an interesting place during the day…and an even more interesting place at night

I could have spent all day just photographing outfits – too bad the people in Slovenia didn’t really like their pictures being taken, so I had to sneak shots.
