It’s October. This is the month when I moved to Slovenija all of… 14 years ago. It’s staggering to me that it’s been so long since I moved there and so long since I’ve moved away. It feels like a lifetime ago, and also like a moment ago, all at the same time.
There are things about that exquisite gem of a country that I will never be able to forget: soft, warm meadows with a solitary cow grazing; snow-peaked mountains shining in the icy morning light; roofed hay racks, sweetly dotting the countryside; snow drop flowers popping up shyly in the spring forest. I could go on, yet while I see – and almost smell and taste – the beauty of those moments, I know that they are mine and cannot be fully translated.
Let me try to show you with some images just how magical Slovenija is, just how real; how everyday and simultaneously how heavenly.*
