Lens-Artists PC: I got away

This year it took me longer than desired but I did it: I got away from the extreme heat of Tuscany in its yellow phase and escaped to balmy Slovenia, even though Piran on the coast, where I am now, is hot and humid too.










Birds and butterflies are not silly. Migration is a thing.

I’m in Piran on the coast already but these photos are from Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia – and this just in, a culinary capital and one of the 100 World’s Greatest Places 2021 according to Time Magazine – as well as my city of birth and most of my life, where I spent the first four days of my escape with my sister.

Imagine that you have just arrived in the city which you can’t even pronounce (it’s “Lube-Lana”) and this is what you see.

Welcome to get away with me. Oh, by the way, Tuscany is on this Time list too. There are projects going on I have heard nothing of yet, such as “The Sense Experience Resort in the southern coastal Maremma area”. Waitaminute. That’s us.

    1. Thank you, Bushboy. You might remember the church but if you strolled in the night, you might not have noticed it was pink. 🙂 Also, sorry, nothing personal, but on Monday we will be enemies for some two hours while Slovenia and Australia have their Olympic basketball game. No hard feelings!

  1. So many things to see here…good you went away to this place and showed it to us.
    And I would have never imagined that that’s the way it was pronounced 😂😂thanks for sharing Manja!


    1. You’re most welcome, Teresa. Truth be told, this is how the locals would say it. The official pronunciation is a bit more complicated. Hang on tight in some 12 hours, Australia. You’re facing Slovenia in basketball at the Olympic Games. 😉
