What to do with One Day in Slovenia

It’s funny because all I really remember about my first visit to Slovenia in 2004 was that it rained the whole time. I have some photos from Ljubljana somewhere that I took with a throw away camera but I have no idea where they are. So when I recently had one day in Slovenia, I […]
