Ive made it down to Rijeka in Croatia but more on that one later, lets just say its good to see the water again, oh yes.
However, 2 days ago I finally did go skiing in Slovenia with Mojca and her two friends and it was fantastic, rock and roll! Matic leant me the gear so all i had to pay was for the lift pass and i had a ball getting into the runs. Thankfully my skiing ability hadn`t completly dissapeared… wow its quite crazy for me to think that is was almost this time last year I was skiing in Sweden, before most of the euro adventures had even happened, even before eurotank but hey, atleast I didnt cut my finger open, this time there were no surgeons on hand.
Heres the customary video:
Once again the train ride from Ljubljana down here to Rijeka in Croatia was absolutly stunning, a wonderful afternoon as we snaked our way through the lower Slovenian mountains. I must say I was feeling happy and content, Slovenian hospitality is the best, whenever Im in Loobiarna I never seem to have a free moment, theres always something happening, something going on. Ive got a lot of time for this country, as well as having mountains AND sealine (small but its sea) it is the poster child for former commie/socialist countries waking up from their former governments. Slovenia broke away from Yugoslavia early and quickly joined the UN and the EU and got in at just the right time and with a lot of hard work, they now use arguably the second strongest currency in the world.. by comparision countries like Croatia and definitly Serbia missed that boat a bit and the doors of the EU are a little bit more closed, after Romania and Bulgaria there wont be any more admissions for a while… but still this begs the question… why ROMANIA and not Croatia? I can definitly tell you, Croatia seems far far more along the road than Romania… this is a question for another time when indeed, I will be giving you a few more cultural learnings of europe.
So today I find myself a bit sick so maybe just a slow walka round the city. I feel like my body is saying to me "YO SUCKA, Ive pumped you full of Endorphins for the last two weeks but now you gotta slow down fool". Yes, my body speaks to me in a Mr T voice.
