Friday, September 17th — Recovery day and Grand opening of the Rain Marathon
Recovering after Triglav with lots of rain, giggling with cute babies, visiting relatives and driving around flooded roads, trying to catch a multimedia presentation about an amazing woman who traveled the world by herself, broke many stereotypes and widened the horizons of many.
Saturday, September 18th & Sunday September 19th — Taking it easy…
…with good food and spectacular jumps through the puddles.
Monday, September 20th — Basketball, Palacinking and Trespassing
Traditional life-or-death basketball game with Sanja. Sweat, blood and tears. 1 ball, 2 players, no mercy. The winner takes it all. And I did. We also introduced Ira to a fun game called Palacinkanje and she mastered it in a second.
21 kilometers long cave, created by the Pivka river, home to many blind, colorless creatures, including endemic olm
, the largest trogloditic amphibian in the world.
Lipica stud farm was established in 1580 and it’s the origin of the beautiful Lipizzaner horses.
Wednesday, September 22nd — Soca Rafting
Another survival test sponsored by my mom. Adrenalin was pumping while we were rowing across the lively rapids, testing our team spirit in a raft, experiencing the Soca river and admiring the valley which the river has shaped throughout millennia.
Thursday, September 23rd — Metting with the capital of Slovenia
. Small and cosy with construction going on on every corner. Climbing to the castle with M&M’s girl and having fun with Pulko, Carr, Rozi and Dax right on the embankment of Ljubljanica river.
Friday, September 24rd — Goodbye day
While I was very happy to see Nina & Luka I think Laika bit me up to that. Which is understandable–she got her favorite bag of cookies! After all the packing there was one last thing I needed to do–visit my neighbor and her lovely cats. All that was left after that was catching the plane back to New York.
