Tadž Mahal – Solza na licu časa

Na letalo vstopiva zadnja in ker je vrsta pred najinima sedežema popolnoma prazna, se mi na usta prikrade zmagovalni nasmešek. Hitro se prestavim, z oblačili in torbico zasedem vse ostale sedeže, zaprem oči in počakam na vzlet. A zaspati ne morem niti po tem, ko se znak za varnostne pasove obarva zeleno in se lahko udobneje namestim. Misel na Indijo me zapolni z občutkom strahu pred neznanim. Nelagodje me pravzaprav spremlja že vse od trenutka, ko sva se odločila, da počitnice na Maldivih združiva s »skokom« do Agre. Od takrat naprej sem iz vsaj desetih različnih virov slišala: »V Indijo gresta? Sta se cepila? Tam vsak zboli. Tam je taka svinjarija, da se je ne da opisati!« Kaj mi je […]

Slovenes abroad: Lidija, Salvador (Brazil)

Lidija has been living in Brazil since February 2005. The first 10 years she spent in Salvador, federal state of Bahia, on the Atlantic coast. The last 2 years she has been divided between Salvador and São Paulo, due to the nature of her work. Every now and then she posts a beautiful photo from the beach on Facebook, making us jealous, especially in winter time. To live in the coastal part of Brazil sounds fantastic but, on the other hand, the country is known for its very high crime rate. So let’s check Lidia’s story to see how she handles those two extremes. Hi Lidia, why Brazil? I have always dreamed of living in Lisbon or somewhere in Scotland. But […]

Day trip to Slovene coast: Piran

If you are visiting Slovenia for only a couple of days, and want to squeeze a coast trip in your tight schedule, you are lucky. First of all, because Slovenia has just 47 km of coastline on the Adriatic Sea and only 3 “major” seaside towns: Koper, Izola, and Piran. And secondly, because the capital Ljubljana is only 100 km away from Koper, so it will take you about one hour to reach your final sea view destination. Day drip to Slovene coast is therefore totally doable, especially if you rent a car and control your own time. Tip: Try to avoid travelling on weekends in the summer season (late June – August), when the highway gets totally jammed. While Koper […]

Slovenes abroad: Lea, San Leandro (CA, USA)

29-year old Lea has been living in San Leandro (East Bay, CA) since 2013. She loves to travel and explore the world, she likes music and reads a lot of books. She’d like to have at least 2 dogs but currently neither her time nor the house rules allow that. Obviously we have a lot in common and given the fact that I have visited California a couple of years ago, it was easy for me to blend in this conversation. Why the United States of America? Because of my husband’s work. And why San Leandro? Where the hell is that anyway? 🙂 My husband is a software developer and when he was offered a job in San Francisco, we […]
