Month: April 2007 (Page 1 of 2)

The darling buds of May

Ljubljana > Koper > Portoroz > Piran > Novi Grad (Croatia) > Izola > and home, in three sunny days.

The lucky proximity of Slovenia’s Independence Day and the Labour Day Holiday mean this week is all about ‘time off’. Naturally we joined in and, we’ve spent the last few days enjoying Slovene hospitality at it’s best with Ajda and friends in Koper.

We swam, explored, relaxed, drank, ate (as you do), crossed international boundries, talked endlessly about bidets (no – i’m still not gonna try one) and even wrote a few Slovene Limmerics – possibly the first ever written. We enjoyed Pivo sevrved by Einstien, coffee served by Mamma and food from all corners of Slovenia.

I also repaid my hitch-hiking debt and helped two Slovene students on their to a party in Izola.

Gremo – let’s go…

Big in Slovenia

Brad Pitt – eat you’re heart out. I don’t see any pictures of you gracing this months copy of Anja magazine!

Ok, so it was only a matter of time before I was discovered and promoted as a housewife idol and, since the publication of the May edition of Anja magazine – life has been good. TV appearances, photo signings and fashion shoots have all been mixed with a life of sex, drugs, wealth and splendour.

As Tom put it – mid-sized, sarcastic, village folk are now the must-have fashion accessory for Slovene supermodels.

I’ll be sending collectors copies home when I find time but, I have to go now as Mojca and Maja are waiting in the Jacuzzi.

Triglav

We had a debate this afternoon about when to Climb Mt Triglav (July or late August?) I lost, but I rekon I could find evidence to support my preference for July …for purely selfish reasons.

My 3 seconds of googling turned up this article – it’s funny…
