Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Ljubljana highlights

Here are some highlights of the old town of Ljubljana

Ljubjana castle stands above the town providing excellent  views.





The Triple Bridge in front of the Franciscan church





They make excellent sausages in the town.




















The front and side doors of the cathedral



















Building of the former Co-operative Bank.








The love locks on Butcher's Bridge. This bridge was constructed in 2010 and is surrounded by grotesque structures with mythological themes.
             



The Dragon Bridge




















Cobblers' Bridge





















The walls of the old monastery








                          
The water fountains are covered to prevent them from freezing during the winter.

  2. There is certainly an eastern influence to the architecture. I was quite enjoying the blue sky until you pointed out the covered fountains.

  7. It looks an interesting city with its buildings , bridges and statues. That is the good thing about living in UK you are so close to these lovely towns and countries. I wish we could do a weekend in Slovenia.

  9. And when covered, why not make it something pretty. Like a hat! Brilliant idea...

    Love that place. I used to live in Yugoslavia for six months a long time ago. I never got to see much of the country then, so would love to go back to the new countries and see a bit more.

  11. It looks beautiful. I still had images in my mind of destroyed cities during the war. Had no idea it all looks well.

  12. Always interesting to see a new place. The doors on the cathedral are fascinating and I love the fountain "cozies". I think Minnesota needs some of those to add color to the winter.

  17. I have not been in Ljubljana yet but I'm obviously missing a lot. It looks gorgeous, both during the day and and in the dark with all the Christmas lights.
