It’s been a while.

I landed here after a couple of months away being slightly depressed, binging TV shows and comforting foods. I’m 35 now. We just returned from a trip to Colorado that shook me alive again with its light, cool air, bright sunlight, and fall colors.

Slovenia is beautiful. It’s the kind of deep green and blue place you’d expect to see in children’s books about castles and dragons. It’s also the kind of place I’ve never thought about visiting and might not always find quickly on a map. (Fun fact: A lot of mail meant for Slovenia mistakenly ends up in Slovakia.)

Coincidentally, Slovenia was featured in two documentaries I watched recently. In the Netflix series, Chef’s Table, there’s an episode about a Slovenian Chef named Ana Ros. She cooks amazing food inspired by the sloping hills and clear rivers of her town, nestled in Slovenia’s Soca Valley. In Where to Invade Next, Michael Moore visits Slovenia to highlight their free university system and progressive politics… in addition to the gorgeous mountain landscapes.Now that I know more about Slovenia, it’s on my ever-growing list of places I’d love to visit.
