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.
