Croatia, Holidays, Slovenia, Wandering around

Holiday Pictures :: Part 1

Hello, my friedns!

As promised, I’m back with the pictures from our holiday which was quite nice, in particular because I saw places from my original country with new more mature eyes.

I’ll show you three places today, one in Slovenia and two in Croatia, which made me feel quite thrilled. The only thing I’m sorry about is that we didn’t take more photos of Kobarid, Caporetto in Italian, it deserves more attention indeed, but we weren’t allowed to take photos in the museum, our final destination in this lovely town. So please, just click to the links you’ll find in my post to have more info about the places we visited. I just want to say that Ernest Hemingway,whose work I studied during college, described the Italian retreat at the end of the Battle of Caporetto, WWI, in his novel A Farewell to Arms. For this reason the visit to The Kobarid Museum was very touching for me. Once at my Mum’s, I looked among my old college books and found the novel and brought it home with me.

    1. Thank you!! Your words mean so much! It is simple impossible to go to Cuba and not visit Hemingway’s home and the places he usually hung out… well at least for thouse who love to read. He is among my favourite authors.

      1. A friend of mine just got back from Ireland and told me that it is not so expensive for our Italian standards. I’m try to convince my BM to travel but the fact is that we had a lot of expencies during our move so we have to wait a bit… :/

      2. Heehee, you’ll have to keep trying! Dublin can be expensive, especially if you go to the fancy places and tourist traps, but it’s also possible to have a great time on a budget. For example, most of our museums don’t charge an entrance fee, so if you like history and art your entertainment is sorted!

  1. What fabulous photos showing us corners of the world that we would otherwise probably never see. Some beautiful landscapes too, and blue sky! Oh how I long to see blue sky again, August has been all grey skies and rain. Perhaps the weather Gods will see fit to grant us a bit of sunshine for our camping trip this weekend:)
