The time, it seems, has nearly arrived. To cease looking back and instead peer forward into the shining, silver mists of the future. To turn not with fear but hope toward the coming twelve months, leaving behind the joys of last year in anticipation of 2012’s glories. Until, of course, the planet blows up. Or melts down. Or does whatever funky and not entirely pleasant thing it might do, proving that the Mayans didn’t just run out of space on their calendar but actually really knew their end-of-the-world shit.
So I make no secret of the fact that I love Slovenia. I mean, what’s not to love? From sucking down absinthe at the surreal Green Rabbit in Ljubljana to whitewater rafting in the shadows of the Alps, from drifting across the translucent, emerald green waters of Lake Bled in a handcrafted wooden boat so beautiful it’s a work of art to feasting on the traditional wild boar and deer meat goulash with polenta – and plenty of the country’s exceptional wine – tiny Slovenia offers more pleasures than nations five times its size.
Ok, so admittedly it might have been a little much, even for me. My FIRST night in Slovenia and I find myself deep into the Green Fairy, surrounded by stunningly beautiful people with, in a David Lynchian-like detail, a small back and white Boston Terrier sporting a big red rubber ball in his mouth scampering around our feet.
